It all started with the Loon, our flagship board that carefully blends speed with stabilization. Known in the market as a true "hybrid", the Loon is a great board for families, cabins, SUP-Yoga, lake and river cruising. 

Available in three sizes: 10.6', 11.6', 12'

Increase Strokes Per Side (SPS):

Tracking straight and increasing strokes per side (SPS) is a key performance factor for anyone paddling Lakes and Rivers. Where most boards average 1-4 SPS, the Loon can achieve 15-25 SPS. This allows paddlers to build up more speed and achieve a much more rhythmic paddling experience.

The Bamboo Advantage:

Bamboo has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any natural fiber. This allows for an extremely durable, yet lightweight board construction. Paddle North bamboo boards, made with real bamboo, weigh at least 15% less than boards made only from fiberglass, 25%+ less than wood strip boards and 50%+ less than plastic boards of comparable size. This makes it easy to transport the board on and off vehicles, as well as down to the water.

Will this board work for me?

Yes, but let's pair you to the right size.  We make this board in three different sizes: 10.6', 11.6', 12'.

A good rule of thumb: Always plan for the heaviest paddler that will regularly be on your SUP board. A lightweight person can easily move up in size (but a heavier person won't be able to balance on a small board). 

The 10'6'' Loon is made for paddlers up to 200 lbs.  This is a conservative weight limit, in which anyone below 200 lbs will feel very balanced and focus primarily on paddling. Paddlers over 200 lbs may have trouble balancing. 

Dimensions: 10'6'' x 32'' x 4.75''

Carry weight: 26 Lbs

The 11'6'' Loon is made for paddlers up to 250 lbs.  This is a conservative weight limit, in which anyone below 250 lbs will feel very balanced and focus primarily on paddling. Paddlers over 250 lbs may have trouble balancing. 

Dimensions: 11'6'' x 32'' x 5''

Carry weight: 28 lbs

The 12' Loon is made for paddlers up to 400 lbs. This is a big board. Anyone below 400 lbs will feel very balanced and focus primarily on paddling. Paddlers over 400 lbs may have trouble balancing. Take into account any gear or accessories that you may be using on your paddle trip.

Dimensions: 12' x 35'' x 6''

Carry weight: 32 lbs

Bringing a furry friend? -- No problem! But be sure to account for your dogs weight in your board selection. 

Features: Round point nose, square tail, tri-fin tracking, 8-piece EVA deck pad, 4-point bungee system. 

Material: EPS core, real bamboo with fiberglass finish for extra durability.

12' is big beautiful and stable

I first went with the inflatable and I was soon frustrated as I didnt find it to be as stable as I was told it would be. Probably the user not the board. I am 5'10 and 210# The great people at Paddle North worked with on making it worth my time to purchase the 12' board and I am glad I did. I went right over the wakes from boats, small waves etc without issues and the board tracked very well. I am very happy I stuck with both paddle boarding and Paddle North.

Madly in love

We’ve had this board for over a month. We live on a lake and have been very pleased. The board has three fins on the back which makes it really nice to paddle with. It won’t turn unless your choosing to. Also, I’m short. I can carry this easily and get it out of the water just fine with no help from anyone else.

Great boards and better service.

We purchased the boards this spring and the service we received was awesome! They were willing to meet us outside of working hours to pick up the boards since we life 3.5 hours away. The quality of the boards are outstanding we couldn’t be more pleased!
