North 2 Board Sports mission was to build durable, affordable, quality, lightweight surf and stand up paddleboards that are not only great looking, but also great performers. All of our boards and paddles are built using only quality components and precision CNC blank shaping to obtain optimal strength, lightweights, and durability. Surfing, exploring and passion for the water is what North 2 is all about. -Click here to view the current Lookbook / Brochure!-

DIY Scotty Rod Holder Install on N2 11'4" Adventure SUP

Love paddle fishing? Here is a fun and easy DIY Scotty Fishing Rod Holder install into your North 2 Adventure SUP Board

Items needed:

-Scotty Rod Holder and base
-Drill with step drill bit
-Pencil and straight edge or carpenter square
-Razor blade
-Pry tool or flat head screw driver
-Two-part epoxy
-Silicone 

Trace out the base of the rod holder with a pencil wherever you want it mounted. Cut out the EVA deck pad with sharp razor. Peel out the cut piece. Measure the hole to be drilled into the board. Drill into the board only deep enough so the base fits flush on the board. Put generous amount of epoxy in the hole and shaft area of the base, and also add a generous amount of silicone to the upper shaft area and bottom side of the rod holder base so when placed into board it creates a nice water tight seal. Let dry and get out and do some SUP fishing! Big thanks for @ Will Vacha for putting this fun project together. Tight lines.
