Blu Wave 12ft 6in Catalina Touring iSUP Paddle Board
perfect for touring distance paddling with minimal effort
The Catalina range are for touring and the Blu Wave 12ft 6in iSup brings displacement hull performance to an inflatable with 6in thick by 30in wide it's still stable and stiff.
The Blu Wave 12ft 6in Catalina Touring iSUP Paddleboard with it's V shaped nose finally brings displacement hull performance into an inflatable paddle board. The Catalina iSUP is very versatile board that glides easily with minimum effort for touring distances. Suitable for rivers, flat water and can cut through small waves with no bother but isn't designed to surf any waves. When you look at the hull there is a subtle rocker that just lifts the front of the nose to the cutting point of the water and keeps the board gliding easy and still really stable, although wouldn't be your ideal yoga board!
The Catalina along with being 12ft 6in long and 30in wide is also 6in thick and constructed with a heavy duty double layer PVC drop-stitch construction it is designed and suggested to pump to 15psi but could easily take more. The valve and general construction of the board is maximum durability and performance. There is a removable standard US style solid fin at the back that keeps you riding true and is standard and replaceable easily if damaged or you can upgrade and change the fin size/style. The front of the board has 4 tie-down loops and a bungie rope fitted ideal of storage on expedition. This is the newer board with just the tie down on the front and a longer footpad on the back which is much more practical and manoeuvrable than the first ones with a tie down on the back too as it made the deck plate too short.
The standard Blu Wave Package comes with board, high pressure pump, carry bag, fin and repair kit. We also have a option of a discounted three piece alloy travel paddle to make a complete package ready to ride or choose your own advanced paddle.
FREE Coil leash with every board ordered.
The overall package on this board is great, even the storage/carry bag is well thought out along with a good quality pump which can be set to double or single action to get to the higher pressures easier so it's not going to be a problem travelling with this in the car/van or even on a flight. We have been testing one of these on demo for quite a long while now and have been super impressed at the build and use compared to other boards much more expensive. If you want to get your own board to paddle but don't want to break the bank or be disappointed a few years down the line then you can't go wrong with these.
Shapers Notes: Our exclusive V shaped nose finally provides true displacement hull board performance in an inflatable. Removable centre fin allows you to tailor your fin choice to the conditions for each day’s unique adventure.
