Kenelle? All-rounderi isokokoisemmille suppaajille
Suppailussa on kyse oman ympäristön tutkimisesta ja seikkailusta, jossa luonto tulee lähelle. Tähän tarkoitukseen sopii parhaiten Redin Voyager-mallisto.
Voyagerin lisätty paksuus ja kapasiteetti tekevät siitä superjäykän ja vakaan, joten lauta on täydellinen isokokoisemmille suppaajille ja matkasuppailuun. Voyagerin lisäpituus mahdollistaa vaikka lapsen istumisen laudalla samalla, kun itse suppailet. Jos suppailet yksin, voit pakata cargo-naruilla vaikka telttatarvikkeet mukaan ja suppailla telttailemaan.
Laudan pohjassa on irrotettava evä sekä keulassa evä, joka auttaa lautaa pysymään linjassa sivutuuliolosuhteissa. Lisäksi laudan peräosassa on kaksi sivuevää estämässä perän luisumista silloin, kun laudan päällä kuljetetaan tavaraa.
I recently purchased the Voyager 12' 6". I have been paddle boarding for about 5 years. I also have a Coreban 10' X 34" board. I wanted a board that I could travel with and that is better for touring. I primarily paddle board on the ocean. The Voyager 12' 6" has been really an amazing board so far. I can get it inflated to 18 psi within around 8 to 10 minutes. On the water this board is very stable. I have not attempted to surf it, however, I can stand-up paddle this voyager on the ocean very well. Also, I have a 7 year old son that I have taken with me. The board is also very stable with my son sitting on the front of the board. I have not had any issue with water coming over the front of the board. In fact I can load the board with weight on the front, back and I can spent the day out on the ocean.
I love my Red Paddle Co. board and would recommend it to anyone for touring and all around use. The backpack and the pump are great. I do wish that a Red Paddle Company 3 piece paddle had been included with the board.
I've had two other RED Boards, this is by far and away the best one ive owned. The new construction is much lighter than earlier models. It's wider than it's longer cousin providing good stability. It has great volume for weight carrying, and tracks through the water better than a more generalist model. One downside to this volume is the extra pumping to inflate. I have used this board for evening paddles, light surfing, short touring, and non-serious racing. On most occasions I have a dog on-board weighing about 27kg. I'd like to see a Redpaddle sell a ~20psi Elec pump.
I took delivery of my Explorer Board (what a great name!) last month so that I could start training for an expedition to Easter Island in the Pacific ocean later in the year. I have been out on my local tidal river in Sussex and will be entering the River Dart Race next weekend. The board is fantastic - easy to inflate, lovely to paddle and really quick to stow in the bag so no delays in getting to the bar...
