Somewhere between kayaking and surfing exists a whole new pseudo sport known as stand up paddleboarding. While it will certainly end up in the Olympics with bags (cornhole for the purists) by the year 2020, for now it seems like more an aquatic activity. We don’t have a problem with that because the concept is relatively simple: kneel on board, paddle away from shore, pop up to your feet, appear to walk on water. If appearing like a floating Venetian gondola driver is something you think you might enjoy, Tower Paddle Boards is the name to beat in equipment. Take their Tower Fit 9’10″ model for instance. This board is specifically built for paddleboarding so it has more floatation, more stability and it’s lighter. The five fin board is easy to carry thanks to the built in handle – which means it won’t be hard for you to get this bad boy to the beach. You may be doing exactly that sooner than you think…
