The Rio is a new inflatable SUP for O Brien in 2020 and is amazing price for the build and shape. It uses a new lightweight but strong fused construction which speeds up production and looses weight. Still super durable with double skinned rails and 5in thick premium dropstitch. Being an 11ft long board by 33in wide it is great for larger riders wanting a super stable board. Also bringing some style to the river and beach with striking wood effect looks this board stands out from the crowd. Single slide in fin system is easy to use and standard product. Luggage straps also make it ideal for days out and touring on the river or at sea.
The shape of the Rio is also nice to ride with a subtle rocker line and pulled in tail it feels stable and low drag on the river and the sea. Also smooth to catch some small waves with ease.
The O Brien Rio Paddleboard comes complete with bag, pump, alloy paddle and we at ATBShop include a leash in the package for safety.
