Stand up paddleboards are not attractive things.
Generally speaking, they resemble ugly, Fraggle-colored seaplane pontoons. They have all the grace of a buoyant coffee table.
Unless you’re talking about Burbank’s own Bosco Boards, the sexiest SUP boards we’ve ever laid covetous eyes on.
These beauts measure six-to-twelve feet in length and up to 37 inches wide, and can withstand 300 pounds of cargo. So they’ll accommodate you and your lady — or just you, if you're plus-size.
To keep the board light and strong, Bosco uses balsa and redwood for the nose, tail-block and spine. The base of the board is carbon-fiber.
Each board’s customizable, and you pick the wood for the top: Italian olive, African mahogany or California redwood.
Orders take six weeks.
And starting this year, Bosco’s offering classes on how to make the boards.
