Wavestorm 9′ 6″ Expedition SUP Stand Up Paddle Board Bundle 2-Pack

Like nearly all affordable paddleboard designed for intermediates and beginners, the Wavestorm SUP is made of top density EPS foam. This is the same stuff they make warm tub covers out of. Making the paddle board out of this top density foam has benefits as well as drawbacks.

Probably the largest benefit of the foam construction is the durability of the board. You do not need to hesitate about destroying the function of your board like you would if it were made of fiberglass. This board can be kicked, dropped, bumped into river rock and tossed on the concrete floor of your garage. It may present some cosmetic damage but as long as it is in a single piece, it will forever float.

Another benefit of the foam, or “soft top”, construction. There is no need to hesitate about children falling and knocking their teeth out on this board. Also, the soft top is simple on your knees, feet, elbows, or tailbone if you pick to do some sit down paddle boarding.

Probably the final advantage of the foam is the board is lightweight. At twenty-five pounds, the Wavesstorm paddle board is simple to carry, mainly with the carrying handle that is built right into the board.

The Wavestorm paddleboard is less rigid and flexible than fiberglass SUPs. The board has 3 marines, wood stringers that include stiffness to the foam but it still cannot match a hardtop. This means that it is not quite simple to paddle as a rigid board. It also means that it is a bit less stable and has a lower moving capacity.

The paddle board has a single fix box, a plastic fin, al east to strap around your storage and ankle strap. The strap can be used to tie down a life jacket or dry bag packed with your valuable gear.

  • The foam makes the SUP extremely safe mainly for beginners
  • Has a light density which makes it float extremely easily
  • It is more durable than the fiberglass SUPs

Conclusion

Wavestorm pioneered the surface of the foam. Matched to the hard and heavy fiberglass board or epoxy board, a foam surface is more starter friendly.

This is because they do not hurt should the waves deliver them crashing against you. They are also more strong, experience less wear and tear, and can withstand water currents and waves quite well.

The top is soft without being slippery, which provides your feet a perfect grip. It is designed to raise the comfortability and balance of the surfer, which I am sure you would agree, would suit a starter well.
