New UFO Stand Up Paddle board model

This is the newest SUP model and it is called the UFO. It is a very advanced board specifically for riding waves and because it is a smaller board it is ideal for lighter SUP surf riders or young surfers. For the non semi professional SUP riders we have dads buying it for their kids to paddle/ride surf and then they prone surf it as a surfboard when they are not using it. Very difficult to stand on unless you are pretty darn good if you weigh over 170 lbs. For the elite SUP rider in really good shape then this is your board. Going top to bottom and ripping fins out or airs is why it is called the unidentified flying object! The board in the picture is a 7’6″ and is available at Blue Line Surf & SUP in Jupiter, Florida.photo-21

About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards
