OT- Naish One review

Postby rodeo clown » Wed Jun 29, 2016 11:13 am

I wanted to rent a SUP last weekend, but they were totally rented. That dude Erik loaned me his. Thanks bro!
The Naish One turned out to be an excellent inflatable shape!
Easy to set up and break down. Super stiff inflated.
Really good glide and directional steering.
Catching boat wakes and wind waves and gliding easily.
The deck is comfy, can be paddled prone and is lively.
Everyone who stepped on it over the weekend was stoked how it was easy to adapt to, and performed.
Check it out at the urb, its solid man.

Cool, thanks.

Any kind of mounting threads or hooks, for instance for towing or mounting a foil?

Is there any cause to recommend this above the other inflatable SUPs which can be found for nearly 1/3 the price on eBay?

I think Intex makes one, but I've just discovered (the hard way) that the valves on their K2 inflatable kayak are prone to leaking - nothing I'd want to entrust my life to offshore in a sudden storm. ..but then they also cost 1/3 of what other inflatable kayaks cost. Apparently you get what you pay for - and as far cheap design goes, I actually would prefer slow valve leaks over something like sudden seam blow-outs which would become the weakest link if they improved the valves.

Here is an interesting alternative to inflatable SUPs if lightweight travel is your priority:

Hey Paul, you are just as bad as me.
A good ride is always memorable,
and I just wanted to support the urb with a shout about the Naish One,
cuz its a sweet shape that is fun to ride it itself!
There are cross ties on the bow for a lash down which is smart,
and a heavy stainless D-ring on the stern for leashing or tows.
You could use it to barge a foil, while packing/sitting on the kite gear for sure.
Seems pretty mermaid friendly, no roof rack needed which is great for travel.
I pumped it up on friday and deflated it on tuesday and it was rock solid.
I think its the same inflate/deflate valve system as the starboard brand.
See you guys on the water!
Cheers!
