Wavestorm Expedition SUP Stand Up Paddle Board
Wavestorm Expedition SUP Stand Up Paddle Board

Like nearly all affordable paddleboards 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.

Features Wavestorm Expedition SUP Stand Up Paddle Board

Making the paddleboard out of this top density foam has benefits as well as drawbacks.

Probably the most considerable benefit of the foam construction is the durability of the board.

You do not need to hesitate to destroy your board’s function 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 it will forever float as long as it is in a single piece.

Sof Top

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.

The soft top is also 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 paddleboard is simple to carry, mainly with the carrying handle built right into the board.

Quality

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 entirely simple to paddle as a rigid board. It also means that it is a bit less stable and has a lower moving capacity.

The paddleboard has a single fix box, a plastic fin, al east to strap around your store, and an ankle strap.

The strap can be used to tie down a life jacket or dry bag packed with your valuable gear.

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 robust, experience less wears 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 surfer’s comfortability and balance, which I am sure you would agree would suit a starter well.
