If you're looking for a board that's stable enough to practice yoga on, quick enough to cruise across your local lake, and nimble enough to be a blast in surf, look no further than the POP Paddleboards Throwback Stand-UP Paddleboard. With a classic cruiser shape, rounded tail, and medium rocker profile, the Throwback is a do-anything specialist. The 2+1 thruster fin setup is a good way to go if you're planning on surfing knee-high waves, butthe system is adjustable so you can remove the two side fins and roll with a single center fin setup when you want the board to track better over open water.
Like all POP boards, the Throwback features a Nature Tech vacuum packed construction. This construction process vacuum seals a bamboo veneer around fiberglass laminates and a high-density foam core, which eliminates excess air between the sandwiched layers. This technique creates a light and durable board that effectively puts the handle on rocky coastlines, paddle dings, and SUP yoga sessions. POP even threw a deep-set center handle on the board, so you can easily carry the board from the car to the beach with just one hand.

Solid board, good customer service!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very happy with this purchase! I've used the board in both the river and the ocean numerous times in the last month and a half. Nice handle makes it manageable to carry. Happy with the size for my use. If you are looking to take it out in larger surf, you might want something a little smaller/more dynamic. This board has been a lot of fun for me in waist high waves!
Helpful customer service from POP paddleboards! Quickly responded to a question of mine regarding the board.
Finally, it's a good looking board!
Great board, great service!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I received my Pop Paddleboard today and I am very impressed. Not only is this one of the best looking boards I've ever seen, but the workmanship is first-rate. I was a little nervous about shipping, but it arrived in perfect condition with plenty of protection. In fact, Backcountry will even assign you a case manager to ensure that the board arrives intact and to take care of any other needs you may have. I should note that I had the opportunity to speak with a Pop representative who went above and beyond to set me up with the right paddle. It was a great experience working with Backcountry and Pop and I can safely say that they have a lifelong customer!
