Surf series SUP 10ft review

Surf SERIES SUP – 10ft

The SURF series stand up paddleboards sold like hotcakes this summer. A new vision to drop the price of stand up boards worldwide and get people paddling succeeded. Here’s the lowdown on my experience with the 10ft version

At first I was hesitant to take out the heavy pop out feeling board into the surf. Their templates are not that exciting to look at, but the 10ft has by far the best shape of the 10, 11, 10’6 and 11’6 available.

Suprised ! The board actually feels very stable and has some glide to it in flat water. The weight seems to help in choppy conditions and the generous double concave through the bottom of the board helps the board create lift once you’re surfing. It’s  a great noserider believe it or not and although the weight is a problem when you want to throw the board around , its great in blown out windy conditions where a bit of weight is not a negative.

To make the board a little more responsive and performance orientated I changed both the side and back fins to stiffer versions ,as the  side set the board comes sold with are quite flexi and the back fin is very large.  For the beginner to intermediate paddler these fins are  great , but the board can perform better when these are changed.

The construction is ok , if the board is dropped the gelcoat tends to crack on the rails which does not make the board take on water , but it does aesthetically ruin the board a bit.

In conclusion a great board for the first time paddler  in flat water and a board which will suprise you in the surf. A cheap no THRILLS SUP of the year which will keep most happy until they’re wanting some performance !

Available sizes – 10ft , 10’6 ft, 11ft, 11’6 ft
