As for its design, you can notice that the Weekender is an all-round inflatable SUP board which is a basic simple design that will take you back to the early surfing days without depriving you the paddling experience that is fused with new and improved technology; thus, this iSUP board will allow you to paddle in almost all kinds of water and mix tradition with innovation smoothly and practically. It’s a design which will maximize the versatility of the board as well as its balance. In addition to that, the Weekender is 10 feet tall, 30 inches wide and 6 inches thick; it’s the perfect size for all levels and activities, as it’s not too big to be rolled up and packed.
Concerning the Weekender’s speed, Maneuverability and performance in the water, what you need to know is that not all inflatable stand up paddle boards are meant to be fast; in other words, an all-round iSUP board is not expected to be the fastest board out there; nevertheless, you can stroke through the water smoothly with a decent speed thanks to the board’s high balance and stiff body. Being mentioned, this trait makes a great yoga iSUP board out of it; it’s sturdy and rigid.
Moreover, there are about 100 threads per inch of board joining the top and the bottom. Also, the heavy-duty stitches are connected to a base-cloth which is covered by a multi-layer protective shell and then attached to an outer layer of stiff Ten Toes military-grade PVC for ultimate strength and durability. You’ll fall in love with how stiff and hard it turns to be once fully inflated. Speaking of which; you can inflate the Weekender up to 15 PSI using the featured manual high-intensity air pump.
Now, on top of all that, you’re going to find the famous EVA deck pad, which is designed specifically for your feet to not skid off the board while paddling or changing directions especially that water can easily get on the board if you’re splashing it everywhere. Another reason why the EVA traction is an important feature is that it keeps your feet at comfort the whole time. Another thing that will maximize your balance is the set of fins featuring the Weekender; they’re all removable and so easy to fix in place, one of them is large and central while the other 2 are smaller and are on the sides.
Moving to smaller details, you’ll find a carry handle in the center of the board to help you carry the inflated board. Additionally, the Weekender comes with 5 stainless steel D-rings; 4 of which are on the front and are connected with a bungee cord so you can secure extra cargo or items to the board, while the last D-ring is meant for safety leash attachment or for tying up the board to docks. The bungee system is quite nice actually; I enjoy using it to secure the paddle when I’m taking a break.
Further, and which is part of the package; the Weekender comes with an aluminum paddle that is impressively lightweight but highly durable and adjustable. It can extend up to 8 feet, but collapses down to less than 3 feet for easy transport. Also, a repair kit is included in case anything happened. Add to that the previously mentioned pump; however, this iSUP board comes without a backpack which is unusual for boards like this one.
Finally, you’ll be satisfied with the one year warranty on the Weekender because it’s more than enough to figure it out as the company trusts their products to cover any normal tear or damage.
At this point, all you have to do is get your iSUP board a nice backpack to take it with you anywhere you go, and enjoy a very nice water adventure as the Ten Toes Boards suggests.
