Buying a standup paddleboard can be expensive, but what if it doesn’t have to be? Just take a look at this video featuring two friends who found a way to build their own SUP–for free. Apparently, all you need is an old canoe, a few pieces of lumber, some pool noodles and a bit of DIY know-how. The duo does manage to succeed in transforming the canoe into a functional (yet unsteady) SUP, but we’re not sure how much fun you’d have. But don’t take our word for it, watch the video and see what you think.
