An all-around, all-ability SUP with a surf-inspired shape that offers stable flatwater cruising and wave surfing performance.
If you’re looking for a board that's equally at home surfing a wave as it is relaxing at a raft-up on your local lake, cruising the flats looking for a trophy catch or overnight touring in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, look no further than the Skiff Tough-Tec SUP. Featuring even volume distribution, a confidence-inspiring width and a refined rocker profile for surf performance as well as flatwater glide. This is a highly versatile, highly durable SUP that's suitable for a wide range of conditions that beginning and experienced paddlers will encounter.
Tough-Tec construction fuses an incredibly durable polyethylene skin around a stringerless, precision-molded, watertight EPS foam core under heat and pressure for an excellent durability to weight ratio. 100% made in France with the highest quality standards and sustainable manufacturing techniques.
The large grooved deck pad provides a comfortable nonslip surface on the flat deck for maximum grip and control with plenty of space to change paddling positions based on water conditions. You'll find four attachment points at the front of the board for adding bungee cord to secure water bottles, sandals and other gear. These attachment points can also be used to add accessories like a camera, GPS or cell phone holder. You'll find a standard leash plug at the tail. The built-in Ergo-Grip carry handle makes for easier transport and less fatigue.
When deciding on an SUP, you'll want to choose a board with adequate volume. This can be the difference between gliding smoothly across the surface or spending your time fighting that very real sinking feeling! Proper volume is influenced by two key variables: rider weight and skill level. The hull on the Skiff Tough-Tec is designed for stability and bouyancy. With a volume of 195 liters, the recommended rider weight limit is 220 pounds for beginners or novices looking for an all-around performer. Experienced paddlers may find they can even exceed this recommended weight limit!
The Skiff Tough-Tec blends surf-inspired outlines for solid wave performance along with the confidence-inspiring, full rail-to-rail volume of a touring board for enhanced stability. The keeled nose provides tracking and glide performance for cruising in a variety of water conditions.
If you don't already own them, remember to order an SUP paddle and a life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be out on the water quickly!
