The Wayfinder SUP offers a performance upgrade to our hugely popular Blue Lotus line of boards without sacrificing the high quality and durability we have become known for. This board is designed for the more "proficient" rider, offering quicker turning, a narrower profile that slices thru the water, and is the ideal solution for those looking for a high-performance touring board. The volume and displacement conveniently handles a wide range of riders from 100- 340 lbs and has the extra length and capacity for all of your beloved cargo, backpack, dog, or that extra child that just wants to sit in the included kayak seat attachment and enjoy the day. The 2 strategically rear-forward placed side tracking fins help keep this board running straight and true and the low profile US fin system allows you to customize your ride with your favorite aftermarket fin. It comes supplied with a durable HDPE composite 9" flatwater fin perfect for most paddling applications.
Known as one of the most durable Inflatable stand-up paddleboards available in the world, our signature design specifications sets the bar compared to big box store paddleboards.
Have you ever wondered what makes a board more or less durable? The first thing to look at are the "dimples". More dimples means more drop stitch space yarn which creates the internal structure. Imagine a bridge with many cross members compared to a bridge with a few. These fibers are an integral part of the board that creates rigidity and eliminates flex and also increases the air pressure (pounds per square inch or "PSI") rating that the board can handle.
As a general rule, higher PSI boards are higher quality. All of our boards are capable of inflating to a mind boggling 25 PSI which is a whopping 20% higher than the company claiming to be the world’s top selling iSUP and almost 70% higher than the 15 PSI reccomended rating on the vast majority of boards on the market.
Our boards are also made with military grade PVC tops and bottoms and double layer sides (0.54mm inner and 0.7mm outer) to take any side abrasion. These are virtually indestructible SUP's and capable of sliding across a sharp river rock, a dogs sharp fingernails, a stick on the beach or your kids making a sand castle on them. Our double rolled rails also make these boards ultra stiff by increasing the side structure and boosting the flexural stiffness. Many of our customers are surprised at how rigid these really are without the hard feel and inherent safety risks of a fiberglass board. Most big box store cheap boards are single layer construction, inflate to a meagre 15-18 psi and have a greatly reduced number of drop stitch space yarn threads.
