Lake Surfing Boards & SUPs
Hey all, it's been a wavy past few weeks and we're hoping it keeps on going! Judging by the forecast we should be seeing more activity just around the corner! Yesterday we brought in a shipment of some closeout Naish paddleboards and longboards that should be excellent for surfing the lakes. Take advantage of these while they last as they're over 50% off retail on some of them. Each paddleboard is new comes with fins and a carrying case. The longboards include fins as well (albeit not the fanciest we've ever seen)... Come check them out sometime!
Lake Worthy SUPs
The Naish Hokua Raptor ($950) is a 7'0" board with lots of width for a stable ride in mushy waves, sound familiar? This will be a great board for someone looking to get into the SUP scene around here. Not going to be much of a cruiser to take out on the lake fishing on the weekend but you're going to have a blast in the waves. We have two models the Raptor V95 and V128. The V95 is ideal for riders up to 170lbs (a bit less in fresh water) and the V128 for riders up to 210lbs. Again this Hokua Raptor is a nice compact board great for the intermediate rider looking for a loose, lively, but stable board under their feet in smaller waves.
We also have the 8'3" x 32" Hokua LE ($900) which is similarly a great board for SUP surfing on smaller waves. This is a higher performance board with a more aggressive shape and can be ridden quad or thruster. The Hokua is designed to get the most performance and power out of weaker waves.
Gerry Lopez Signature Series
Lastly we have a few of the Gerry Lopez signature series longboards available in 9'0" ($700) or 10'0" ($720). These will be the ticket for any of those heading up to Shevegas looking for a cruiser to snag some long flowing rides. Brand new with fins for hundreds off retail. Plus with that yellow body, if you leash breaks you'll be able to spot it from miles away. Check out this link to read more about the Naish/Gerry Lopez collaboration!
