I went up to SB today to go to SurfingSports' SUP demo day to check out the new stuff they have going on. Wardog and Deb are always on top of the new trends - Plus, I have been anxious to get a new 8.3" quickblade paddle.
They didn't dissapoint! I tried 3 of Wardog's personal quiver custom built boards from North Pacific Surfboards and I must say that they are the most stable, yet maneuverable boards I have ever tried - even at 8'10! They have a quad +1 fin set up which makes them great for surfing or for just going for a paddle, and they are super durable and light since they are so small. I think they are an all around great board for what I am looking for. Here is a gallery from the day.
Wardog has a 10'6" stinger board which seems to be a great board for "Big" California days. The cool thing is about getting this custom made is that if you are smaller like me, you can just ask them to scale it down to 9'3" instead of 10'6". Thanks to Wardog for a great day!
