My third SUP board from Tower Paddle is the best yet. After two inflatable boards, which I have had for years (and which nobody believes are inflatable because they are so stable,) I decided to buy a hard board.
The 10'6" Carbon Cross-link is beautiful! it tracks much better than the inflatables (which track well!) and it sits much lower in the water. I think it is a little narrower than my other two boards, but I love the sleek lines and the beautiful blue color. I am a fair-weather, flat-water paddler, but over the years I have grown to enjoy the sport so much that I bought neoprene for those sunny winter days.
The customer service at Tower has always been excellent, and I highly recommend them as your go-to SUP source. Thank you, Tower, for introducing me to this great sport!
