"AMAZING BOARD"

This board is a true beauty. I spent a lot of time researching boards. I was looking for something with touring speed but also could handle the ocean an intercostal waters. This board is great for both. It cuts through choppy water really well. Got caught in some high winds first time out and was able to make it back with ease.

"BEST INVESTMENT EVER"

I am an intermediate paddler and was looking for a board that was stable for both the ocean and the harbor. I paddle 3-4x a week in the summer and 1-2x a week in the winter. I LOVE this board. I didn't realize how awesome the hands free option was until I had it. I love putting my paddle in and being able to drink my water, stretch my shoulders and have a snack not worrying about the paddle rolling into the water. The shoulder strap, oh em gee! Absolutely amazing. The quality of the board is phenomenal, all my friends that tested it out, loved how soft the cushions are. The graphics are so awesome, folks are always asking if it's an inflatable. I purchased this board without ever testing one out since I am in southern California and the closest retailer is 7 hours away. It was worth the risk. I can see myself using this board for years to come. Stop debating and buy it. Shipping was fast and customer service was exceptional.

Business and Pleasure

Incredibly fast and nimble. I had planned to use it for workouts and that’s it. Then one day a few weeks ago I threw on the tackle rack and instantly mixed business with pleasure. Now my 12 Traveller is like my little bass boat, load it up in no time, race out to the sandbar and fish for a bit and then race back. It’s way way easier to load up and half the weight of my 14 Rackem but just a heads up it’s not made to fish off of…just get you to a angling spot faster. In my quiver It has become my go to SUP of choice.

Great All Around Board

I've been paddling on and off for a number of years. I was ready to buy my own board and looked around for a while and ended up selecting the Traveller 14. The board is fun to use, stable and easy to paddle.

1 Awesome board!!!

I love this board! It’s playful but predictable and ohh can you say speeeed? Never realized how slow my inflatable boards were until paddled on the traveler. It cuts through San Francisco and Tomales bay chop like butter and does it fast! I loaded it with a 100+lbs of gear for camping and paddled up 15-20MPH on to head to sideways wind for the longest 2mls of my life and it handled beautifully!

Mark van’s review

We just got on our Traveller 12’6” boards yesterday for the first time. These boards are beautiful and glide through the water extremely well and are very calm and confident in windy choppy water. The reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is these boards are heavy! Even though we knew the weight from the specs ahead of time it is still a surprise when lifting or carrying these boards. I personally feel these boards should be 6-8 lbs lighter than they are. Even that little bit makes a big difference. Overall we are satisfied with these boards but future designs should shave off extra weight.

Up Level

I was ready to up level my fitness experience on the water and the Traveller was exactly what I needed. Because of the narrower design and hull, it cuts through the water and is great in on both flat and small surf and windy conditions. It requires all over body engagement for balance and allows you to cover some serious ground. I tend to beat stuff up a bit and the paint on the board is fragile and has chipped a bit, but I am more concerned with performance than looks, and this board performs.
