What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

   TRAVEL FRIENDLY.  Yes, you can take it with you. When you're at your favorite water spot (Beach, Lake, River, Cable Park, even Pool) simply un-roll it, inflate it quickly & go. Yes, it's that EASY! 

   RISE Boards can be used for many water activities, at the BEACH or Behind the BOAT!  They offer an incredibly firm "drop-stitch" inner structure, enabling you to have an amazingly sturdy board in the water. 

   Be an Early RISE'R, with a LIMITED pre-production run, we will start shipping, yes, THIS SUMMER!  When those are gone, we will start another production run...because Summer lasts forever in our minds...

   ZUP's focus is to put more smiles on more faces on the water. We don't care who you are, what experience you have, where you're drivin' to, Beach or Lake. Our products are targeted to our favorite people in water sports...EVERYBODY!!!

   We are a team of experienced designers, entrepreneurs, dad's, mom's and some weird people too, who love to think of and build products that give safety, fun, creativity, and accessibility to everyBODY on the water.

   When we left Shark Tank this January, the Sharks loved our product, but they did not invest, so without a deal, we need your help so we can give you the best new fun products you have ever seen.

With this Board, EveryBODY getZUP!

Risks and challenges

We've finished all the prototypes, designs and have tested our new RISE Boards (made with industry standard drop-stitch material) throughout the last year extensively and had a chance to produce a small batch of RISE ZUP Boards for promotional purposes and are very happy with our outcome. Our manufacturing department is ready to complete the next run of boards after we sell out of the first pre-production boards, to our "Early RISER'S".

Transforming a product towards high quality production is a challenging endeavor. Thankfully we have an amazing manufacturing team (over 3 years of production experience with this team) which will guarantee a smooth production start. With that said there is always a possibility of finding bumps along the road which we will be prepared to tackle efficiently. That's what you do.

This is not our first rodeo, however, as a small startup that did not get a deal on Shark Tank recently (JANUARY 14, 2018) we expect our next few design concepts will be best brought to the market via YOU, our fans on Kickstarter. Thanks to ALL OF OUR FUTURE BACKERS!
