MEASUREMENTS

The Keeper stand up paddle board is twelve feet 6 inches (10’6″) long, thirty inches (30″) wide, and five ins (5″) thick. 10’6″ is a great length if most likely starting out paddle boarding – not way too short you will be battling to keep upright, but not so long as to feel like an educate as early as you attempt to change on the water. Click Here

The board weighs about 25lbs (11kgs), which is excellent – it will not take very long to comprehend the luxury of a light stand paddle plank if you need to haul it from the car park to the water several times. The draw back, of course, is that light-weight panels are generally damaged by strong winds when from the water. This is unquestionably noticeable mainly when seeking to catch waves with strong offshore winds flying (keeping the board from “catching” the wave). 

STRUCTURE

The board is made from high density epoxy resin (EPS), which is actually a pretty cheap and amazingly light-weight surf board main. They are also very sturdy, and can put up with knocks that would teil regular fibreglass boards. Several surfing purists would somewhat use conventional fibreglass, nevertheless, if you need a lightweight, strong paddle board at a good price point, you cannot get it wrong with EPS.

The board also has three wooden stringers, molded right into the deck. Stringers are widely used to help reinforce a stand up paddle board. The board has a 75 percent waterproof core, and can hold a weight of up to 300lbs (136kgs) in the drinking water.

FEATURES

The Keeper stand up paddle board is light-weight, and an outstanding size for learning. It incorporates a strong design, making use of both EPS and three wooden stringers. The paddle floats, and that is always an added bonus!

ADD-ONS

The bundle includes with an adaptable SUP Paddle (with exclusive Blade Shield), padded roof structure racks and surf lead. The padded roof wine racks are fine for local trips, but you might want to spend money on some good roof racks if you intend travelling further afield. At high rates of speed they may be noisy, and as soon as it down pours, the water can absorb through in to the of one’s car.

PERFORMANCE

This kind of board is not really intended for performance, but it doesn’t mean it can’t catch good mounds (if you are likely to go paddle boarding at the beach). This could be regarded as an “all-rounder”, meaning it is great for everyday paddle boarding on the near by lake, but on top of that has enough juice to catch small waves at the beach (although, We wouldn’t suggest trying this on any point break if you are a novice – stick to small beach breaks with this one).
