Progress up the waves or get back to the basics.
Take the Naish Nalu Series GT Wood Stand-Up Paddleboard to the closest lake and learn the basics, or make a right at First Point break and walk your toes to the nose—either way this beginner-friendly, vet-ready longboard-style line of SUPs will keep the sun, and a smile, on your face.
Naish's unique GT construction combines a closed cell EPS core with a reinforced glass matrix and a wood sandwich deck and bottom for an incredible strength-to-weight ration and energetic flex. Sitting on top, the EVA deckpad offers maximum traction and durability with a diamond groove pattern that grips your foot for powerful turns or relaxing SUP yoga. Underneath, the 2+1 fin setup gives you the flow and tracking of a traditional longboard with the removable 9-inch center fin, and added stability with the removable side bites. The rockered nose and pin tail rip everything from ankle slappers to rolling sets of double overheads, and the V-tail concave makes flatwater cruising stable and smooth. When it's a hike just to get in the water, the center placed ledge handle gives you a secure grip that reduces finger fatigue for carrying your board long or short distances.
For inlanders and touring enthusiasts, the Nalu Series offers the 10ft 10in model. A lower rocker and multi-concaved bottom channels water from nose to tail keeping the glide straight and boosting speed, while the 10.5in center fin, squared tail, and recessed deck provide a noticeable increase to stability. The 10ft 10in also includes eight insert holes to bungee down cargo. Expert and lighter riders will appreciate the maneuverability of the 10ft 6in model, while beginners and heavier paddlers might look to longer models of the Nalu GT board.
