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 board's, made with real bamboo, weigh at least 15% less than boards made only from fiberglass, 25%+ less then wood strip boards and 50%+ less then plastic boards of comparable size. This makes it easy to transport the board on and off vehicles, as well as down to the water.
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 ryhthmic paddling experience.
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). Bringing a furry friend? -- No problem! Just be sure to account for your dog's weight in your board selection.
