This is one of the more luxurious paddle boards. You can see with the design itself that a lot of attention and affection has been put into the creating process. The design, although minimalistic, is very elegant and modern.
The honey foam deck pad is one of the more comfortable ones you will try, which means that you will get used to the gear easily.
The neoprene carrying handles are also very comfortable, which is great for those who like to be safe and sound during the drives.

Boardworks Kraken comes in different lenght like 9’3″ , 9’9″ ,  10’ 3″ , 11’, 12’ 3″ but actual models are 10’ and 11’.
This 11′ model itself is very lightweight and it has a durable DFL construction. This size is really good because it helps you remain stable, it’s not too hard to handle the whole thing even if you are a beginner just trying to get a grip of what you’re doing.
You get a pump as well as a storage bag, which means that you will be able to move the paddle board around easier. You can use this board as a yoga board as well, or bring your pet with you on the water.
One thing you need to keep in mind is that the board is about 35 lbs heavy, which is on the heavier side, and you may have issues with it if you’re trying to find a board for renting, hotels or schools. You may want to start with some lightweight models first!

Also, if you are new to inflating, you may want to get an automatic pump since inflating a paddle board this big can be exhausting sometimes. A car pump is a solution many people like to use, but it depends on you.
