Ready to build your own hollow core wood paddle board?
You’ve come to the right place. Jarvis Boards has built over 1,000 wooden paddle boards in our Austin, TX studio. We’ve distilled all of that knowledge into easy to build wood stand up paddle board kits and plans for you to build at home.
Nervous if you have what it takes to build your own wooden paddle board at home? We know you can do this because before we became the premier wooden paddle board manufacturer, we started with average woodworking skills in a one car garage working nights and weekends. See our origin story.
What can I do with these plans?
These plans will allow you to create the internal frame structure of your board so that you can create your own board at home. You will need to source all of your materials locally and cut out each section of the frame yourself. For international customers, those on a tight budget, or curious builders, this is the perfect place to start! Digital plans can be downloaded and printed full scale locally. Paper plans will be printed full scale by us and delivered to your door ready to be traced and cut out saving you the time and cost of having them printed locally.
Included in our digital download plans is a full size PDF template for you to create the internal ribs for your paddle board. In addition, we include a 40+ page tutorial and how to videos to help you build your board. An example video can be seen below.
Which board is right for me?
We've created a selection of wooden paddle boards to fit a range of different paddlers' skill sets and uses. Watch the video below to learn more about sizes.
Are these the same boards as the in-stock boards that you sell?
Yes and no. We’ve taken our proven shapes that we’ve made for customers across the globe and have adapted them to make the building process easy for the DIY builder at home. This gives you confidence that you’ll have a high performance, great looking paddle board that has been tested by paddlers worldwide.
How will I receive my plans?
Upon check out, we will e-mail you a copy of our digital downloadable plans in PDF format. These can either be printed full scale by your local printer or using your home computer, so that you can accurately trace and cut out the internal ribs to get started building your next paddle board.
Paper plans will be printed full scale and shipped in a 24" packing tube ready to be traced out and cut out on your material.
CNC plans are for builders that have their own CNC router and would like to use it to cut their own frame. The files will be sent via DXF format.
