O ver the last years, stand up paddle boarding has become one of the most popular water sports in the world. It is a great activity for all ages because is very easy to learn. Therefore, if stand up paddle boarding is one of your passions, then the Ten Toes 10′ Weekender is exactly what you need. It is an incredible all-around SUP that provides you with lots of fun moments on the water. More than that, it is extremely stable and easy to use for beginners and advanced paddlers alike.

Design

The Weekender is one of the most popular inflatable paddleboards on the market. It comes in a variety of colors, such as green, seafoam, red/black, blue and gray. This nice collection of colors can satisfy all tastes for both female and male riders. In terms of design, you can notice that this all-around paddle board comes with a simple, yet stylish design.

It is an eye-catching retro design that will maximize the balance of the SUP as well as versatility. Additionally, if you are thinking about purchasing this model, you need to know that it is 10 feet tall, 30 inches wide and 6 inches thick.

It is suitable for various activities, including yoga, paddling, touring or surfing. When deflated, it has the size of a sleeping bag, so it can be easily carried around. Made of military-grade PVC with drop-stitch construction, this SUP is nearly indestructible and very stable.

Stability

If you are looking for an inflatable paddle board that provides stability, the 10′ Weekender is definitely an option worth taking into consideration. When it is fully inflated to the maximum air pressure of 15 psi, it is as solid and stable as the hard model, and it can hold riders up to 250 lbs..

Its 6-inch thickness creates a strong and stable base that feels safe and secure. Compared to other similar models that come with one removable fin, this one has three removable fins for challenging waters. The fact that you can remove all three fins is a major perk. Actually, this is just an extension of its versatility.

Another interesting aspect that we like about this board is that the fins can be removed and attached again with a minimum of fuss. They are secure with a push-in clip that locks them in, so they will not budge.

Features

This incredible paddleboard comes with a basic design and some good features. Its rounder tunes-up nose allows you to handle it through the waves easily. Like many other paddle boards, this model comes with a decent size bungee cord system.

It is located at the front of the traction pad and it secures your water bottle and gear. Additionally, the SUP comes with 6 D-rings. One D-ring is placed at the back of the board. It is specially designed for attaching your board leash. Another D-ring is placed at the front of the board. Also, there are 4 D-rings up-front that are used for the bungee system.

One of the most interesting features of this board is the non-skid EVA traction pad. It is comfortable and it feels great. The 10′ Weekender has a carry handle at the center of the board. In spite of its lightweight feature, it is easy for you to carry and the center handle is exactly the one you will use most often. The carry handle is nice and durable. It is covered with PVC fabric.

Ease of use

The 10′ Weekender is easy to inflate, easy to deflate, easy to carry, easy to paddle and easy to store. In simple terms, it is nothing difficult about this board. As it was mentioned before, it has a round shape, which means that it’s easy to handle in the surf and choppy waters. Furthermore, it comes with an adjustable aluminum paddle that can extend up to 9′ and break down to about 3′. Thanks to its quick-release system, the height can be easily adjusted, in order to suit everyone’s needs.

Frequently Asked Questions


1Can it support two people?
Considering the fact that the maximum weight limit of this SUP is 250 pounds, it is unlikely for two people to be able to use it at once unless we are talking about children. If you want to ride the board accompanied by someone else, look for a model that can support up to 350 pounds at least.

2Does it come with a paddle or should I purchase it separately?
Yes, the product does come with an aluminum paddle that measures 9’, so there are no additional purchases required. Also, considering the fact that the paddle’s height can be adjusted from 3’ to 9’, it is intended to suit the needs and height of any rider.

3What is the thickness of its base?
The base of this board measures 6 inches in thickness, which is quite generous. This design enhances its stability in use, making it unlikely for you to ever fall off or feel insecure when you are riding it.

Conclusion

With a rounded shape that makes it perfect for choppy waters and surf fanatics, the Ten Toes 10’ Weekender is a must-have regardless of the recreational activities you want to take up with the board. Moreover, considering the fact that the manufacturing company backs it with an industry-leading 2-year warranty, the belief that it doesn’t puncture easily and actually withstands harsh conditions without any issues is strengthened.

All of the aforementioned stats, as well as the comfort it provides to the rider and the reasonable asking price make it an option any paddle boarder should seriously take into consideration.

What we like the most: The fact that it features a tri-fin setup where all fins are removable. Thus, you are not only granted with a higher degree of maneuverability when it comes to manipulating the board’s direction, but you have an easier time rolling and packing it as compact as possible when it is not in use.
