Increase Strokes Per Side (SPS):
Tracking straight and increasing strokes per side (SPS) is a key performance factor for anyone paddling flatwater. Where most boards average 1-4 SPS, the Portager can achieve 15-25 SPS. This allows paddlers to build up more speed and achieve a much more rhythmic paddling experience.
Inflatable boards naturally sit higher on the water, which can have a negative impact on the boards tracking performance. We've counteracted this by adding in the must-have displacement hull nose shape. This nose cuts the water and increases the boards speed and tracking performance. At 32'' wide and 6'' thick, it still remains extremely stable.
Will this board work for me?
Because the Portager is inflatable, it is very buoyant and fits a very wide range of paddlers. From young children to 300+ lb adults, the board will have the control, stability and balance to support all types.
Features: Displacement hull, square tail, single fin tracking, 2-piece EVA deck pad, dual bungee tie down straps.
