Desolation Standup Paddleboard Technology
the design process
Desolation standup paddleboards are designed by leading naval architects on the San Francisco Bay. These naval architects have a strong background in design, further enhancing the performance & stability of our boards. We offer a model for every purpose and experience level from racing, touring, exploration, surfing & cruising.
We construct our standup paddleboards with one select group of materials that offer the best strength to weight ratio available.
All Desolation standup paddleboards are constructed over closed cell EPS foam, using a sandwich laminate of carbon fiber & innegra cloth. Carbon fiber helps make our boards lightweight & torsionally very strong while innegra keeps them durable.
No materials in our construction are prone to breaking down or delaminating over time, unlike the lower quality fiberglass & wood that our competitors use. This eliminates soft spots, cracking, leaks & delamination while increasing overall performance.
Our boards are lighter, stronger, built to last & are designed for optimal performance. #LIFETIMEWARRANTY
Our Boards Are Reinforced Where Others Are Not
All high stress areas of our boards are reinforced with additional carbon fiber & high density-divinycell foam blocks. (This includes fin boxes, leash plugs, standing area’s, rails & chines.)
Only The Best Components Are Used
Desolation SUP boards come equipped with our signature easy grip/non slip handle to ensure that transporting your board is simple. On our wider boards, we have installed the handle at an off-set to make carrying your board a breeze. To top it off, our boards come with lightweight EVA deck pads that are preinstalled along with self breathing vent plugs. All of our SUP boards come complete with premium FCS SUP fins constructed of lightweight & durable G10.
