O ne of the most affordable models on the market, Uenjoy 11’ comes in 2 sizes to accommodate both kids and adults and fit as many paddlers as possible.
The military-grade material provides excellent resistance against puncture and abrasion, while the all-around shape increases maneuverability and steadiness, making it perfect for users with different paddling skills. Furthermore, it easily turns from a full-size board into a compact package, so you can transport it via airplane.
Paddle boarding is all about relaxation and fun, but if your board isn’t comfortable, you won’t be able to enjoy either of them. Some boards are too short or not wide enough, forcing the paddler to adopt an unnatural position that will eventually produce fatigue and muscular pain. This is why we get excited when we see options, and this SUP offers two:
- The 10’ variant – features a length of 10 feet and a width of 30 inches, with the deck thickness of 6 inches. The weight capacity is 242 pounds, perfect for kids and lighter users.
- The 11’ variant – measures 30 inches in width and 11 feet in length. The 6-inch thick deck ensures proper support for heavier users, as it can sustain a weight of up to 286 pounds.
Both variants are built of military-grade PVC which provides excellent robustness and durability, turning them into versatile devices, ready to deal with strong waves, rocks, and sand. Additionally, they come with a sleek design to match the colors of the waves.
The deck is covered by a soft EVA pad that provides an excellent grip and a soft and comfortable touch for your feet. The robust material allows you to pump up to 13 psi of air and create an excellent rigidity. This way, you will get not only balance and steadiness but a board that is easier to maneuver, as the stiff deck decreases the water resistance.
Moreover, the grab handle is conveniently placed in the middle of the board, so you can carry it on the beach without effort. The tie-down bungee cords will help you keep your supplies secured during longer rides, while the ankle leash will keep the board close every time you end up in the water.
The 3-fin navigation system offers improved control, allowing you to smoothly steer and slide through choppy waves. All-around models are suitable for a large number of activities, and you will be able to experience SUP fishing, fitness, yoga, cruise, or enjoy a pleasant sunbath, all within the comfort of a generous, thick board.
Moreover, it comes with everything you need to get it going and repair it if some unfortunate accident happens. The kit includes a high-quality pump that attaches to the air valve and inflates the board in minutes, and a plastic paddle, easily adjustable to your size. Another practical accessory is the repair kit which includes a patch and glue so you can fix any problem on the spot.
