Stand-up Paddle Board - Nalu 11' Hybrid
The hybrid design of the Nalu gives you a choice - stand up to get the full paddle-boarding experience, or sit down and attach the extra fin to the paddle to keep going as a kayak! In either case this is a good, stable board for river touring. However, it is available only to those with some experience and comfort on a SUP who are over the age of 18. Weight limit 275 pounds.
