It all started with the Loon. The first board we ever made. The Loon was designed as a true hybrid that combines speed with stability. Perfect for families, cabins, SUP-Yoga, and lake or river cruising. This board comes in three sizes: 10.6, 11.6, and 12.
One of the key performance factors for paddling on lakes and rivers is tracking straight and increasing strokes per side (SPS). While most boards average 1-4 SPS, the Loon can achieve an impressive 15-25 SPS, allowing you to build speed and enjoy a more rhythmic paddling experience.
Our boards are constructed with real bamboo, which has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any natural fiber. This results in an extremely durable yet lightweight board that weighs 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 to and from the water.
To ensure the perfect fit, we offer the Loon in three different sizes. As a general rule, plan for the heaviest paddler that will regularly use the board. The 10'6'' Loon is for paddlers up to 200 lbs, the 11'6'' Loon is ideal for those up to 250 lbs, and the 12' Loon can accommodate up to 400 lbs.
Our boards feature a round point nose, square tail, tri-fin tracking, 8-piece EVA deck pad, and a 4-point bungee system.
Don't worry if you want to bring your furry friend along for the ride – just be sure to account for their weight when selecting your board. With the Loon, you can confidently hit the water and enjoy a smooth and comfortable paddling experience.
Increase Strokes Per Side (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.
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'.
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''
