The Tahoe Maritime Center Wooden Paddleboard Building Course will commence this September, 2017.  The course will use Chesapeake Light Craft paddleboards, which are built from marine plywood using a stitch and glue method.  Tahoe Maritime Center is honored to have Larry Froley, from Gray Whale Paddle in California and Kaholo paddleboard co-designer, as our instructor for this course.

Please register by August 31th, 2017 to secure your place and allow time for material shipping.  Once registration is full, we will start a waitlist.  To register, please email our educator at

Participants will choose from either the 12’6” board (better for smaller paddlers), or the 14’ board (better for larger paddlers).  We can help you pick the right board for you.  These boards are great for touring or even racing, as they each fit in common race categories.
