Take whitewater standing up.
Just like a whitewater kayak, the Jackson Kayak SUPerCharger Stand-Up Paddleboard was designed specifically to take on challenging whitewater conditions in the river. There's extra volume at the nose and the tail so this board pops up quickly and cleanly in whitewater chop, and there's a non-slip deck padding underfoot so all that pounding water won't leave your feet aching. Jackson crafted this bottom of this board with a defined channel shape and dual fin boxes that give you precise control in tight sections of water. You'll stay on your feet through nasty rippers, surf through holes, and handle twisting shores with ease thanks to the SUPerCharger paddleboard.
- Rotomolded construction makes this board highly durable and impact-resistant
- Bow and stern have increased volume so this board resurfaces quickly and cleanly in whitewater
- Stern has a more dramatic rockered profile that allows this board to surf in holes and pivot quickly to navigate tight sections of river
- Bottom of the hull has a channeled shape that increases speed and control over turbulent water
- Fins improve tracking in a variety of conditions, and the fins can be removed
- Flat deck and deck padding provide a stable surface that improves the paddler's ability to maintain balance in whitewater, eddies, and the like
- Deck features water-repellent coating so water rolls off the top quickly
- Center handle allows you to climb back onto the board quickly after falling in the water
- Bow, stern, and side grab handles give you plenty of options when you need to get a grip on this board

Great whietwater SUP, tweaks needed!

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ran a bunch of trips in Colorado on this guy.
Pros: I love how burly it is. You can beat the crap out of this board and it barely scratches. The extra volume in the front does a great job paddling down river and punching through waves. It's super stable when ferrying or blasting through some class 2-3 rapids.
Cons: Super heavy. A real pain in the butt to get on and off the roof and hiking to a put-in. The deck has bent downward from standing on it, so water gets trapped there when Im paddling. That makes for cold feet. Too bulky and cumbersome to surf waves well. More like 55 pounds!
I'm looking for a board I can ride with...
I'm looking for a board I can ride with my 80 lb lab mix, I'm about 2 bills myself. He's been in kayaks and other boards and does pretty well. I'll be in reservoir's mostly but would like to get on the Colorado around Moab. Good board for us?
This boat has a capacity of 250 lbs. You would still be under that, but the board will be less stable if you are on the upper range. I'd recommend looking at the Jackson Supernatural. That board is good up to 350 lbs and will be a much more stable platform.
