Surfing on raceboards is a lot of fun and a great skill to practice if you want to get faster on downwind runs, it's all about surfing the bumps. Surfing these big long boards also allows you to catch and surf waves that others can't, which opens up all kinds of uncrowded spots and smaller waves that are barely breaking that you can catch from way outside,surf and ENJOY.
These two videos are from our weekly SUP training group, in the first one we go over some tips on how to surf waves on longer raceboards (sorry, the sound is not the best as the microphone was picking up the wind noise). The second video has action on the water with a voiceover going over some of the tips. We hope you enjoy the footage. If you like our videos, please subscribe to the blueplanetsurf youtube channel!

Blue Planet Inflatable SUP Kickstarter Campaign has launched!
We are excited to say that our kickstarter campaign for our newly designed Inflatable SUP line has successfully launched. Within just 24 hours we have made 20% of our goal so far! We spent more than 2 years developing our new inflatable SUP designs and after extensively testing them on a variety of conditions we decided to try and bring them to market at a much more affordable price than other High Quality Inflatable SUP's on the market right now. Our real goal is to get more people on the water, for less.
You can view our kickstarter project here:
We would love for you to become a backer and help us make this project a reality, but you can also help without donating by helping us spread the word.
Find us on Facebook and help spread the word.
Mahalo for any support and hope to see you on the water.

Our new 2014 Blue Planet Soft Top SUP's are available now at our Honolulu Store and at select Blue Planet dealers.
This video was shot at the Blue Planet factory in November 2013 showing the construction process of the 2014 Blue Planet Softtop boards. The softtop boards are designed to be easy to use, lightweight and durable. The PC bottom sheet make the bottom very scratch and ding resistant, much like the bottom sheet on a snowboard. The deck and rails are wrapped with high density EVA foam which makes it safe and resilient. The bamboo veneer sandwich construction makes these boards strong yet light, the 10'6 weighs in at only 24 lbs. The boards come with tie down deck plugs, gopro mount on nose, self venting gore vent plug, and the new SUP Grip handle which makes lifting, carrying and locking the board easier than ever. The first part of the construction process is very similar to our veneer boards, check out the veneer board construction video on the construction page to see how the inside of the board is made:
