Spring of 2021 is upon us. The sun is shining brighter, the days are longer, and the weather is getting balmier across Canada. In other words - stand up paddle board (SUP) season is just beginning.
Adventurous individuals and households alike are on the hunt for a new watercraft. You’ve already decided that you want an inflatable versus a traditional solid SUP, but that is only one part of the purchase decision-making equation. You’re also seeking quality and maximum usage for yourself and anyone else in your household or circle that may want to paddle it. But given the investment, you want to make sure that you’re getting the best all-around board for your hard-earned bucks. The good news is that we’ve taken out the guesswork for you. Below is a breakdown of why the Elemental Wave Ten6 is the only ISUP you’ll ever need for 2021 and beyond.
5 Reasons Why Sea Gods’ Elemental Wave Ten6 is the Top Inflatable SUP for You and Your Household
1. Easiest to Carry
As the smallest from our line of premium ISUPs, the Elemental Wave Ten6 is the most convenient for those who plan on hiking with their board to a secluded lake or nook of the coastline. When compressed, it (and all included accessories) easily fits into your Sea Gods wheelie hiking backpack carry-bag. That said, with dimensions of 10’6” x 32” x 6” the lightweight but strong board still inflates to handle rider weights up to 250 lbs. It’s the easiest ISUP to carry, that can also carry you over the open water with complete confidence.
2. Great for Beginners and Advanced Paddlers Alike
When you buy a new board, you will want to consider your needs today, tomorrow, and the day after that. Your paddling strength, balance, and all-around skill level will change over time, as will the intentions for how you’ll use the SUP. You need a board that will be there with you through all transitionary periods of your outdoor life. You need a SUP that will accommodate the journey from beginner to highly-advanced paddling, no matter what notch in the spectrum you’re at when making the new purchase.
This is also true of family households who are buying one or two SUPs for everyone in the family to use. In this case you need a board (or boards) that can pass from mom and dad to teen and all the way down to the munchkins and even the family dog as you paddle tandem with the latter lot.
The Elemental Wave Ten6 is the board to take you and your household on that journey through life. The aforementioned dimensions (10’6” x 32” x 6”) are just the beginning, as the ISUP has the strongest PSI range (tested above 20PSI) for ultimate rigidity and additional weight support. In addition, the diamond-pattern high-traction EVA pad (w/5mm thickness and 50A rigidity) ensures that even the least surefooted person can hold their balance when a passing boat creates a ripple. Then there’s the adjustable paddle handle/shaft length that ranges from 36.5-81 inches to ensure that a great experience is never out of reach.
3. It Looks Great on Display
Let’s be honest, no matter how much value you place on strength, durability, and overall function you still want a great-looking board. You’re out there on the water and on-display for other paddlers, swimmers, jet-skiers, and boaters to see, and don’t mind showing off your awesome SUP. And if you plan on taking photos of your adventures it doesn’t hurt to ride something eye-catching when sharing them on Instagram - which is why our boards come with a universal action camera mount. Plus, a number of you don’t want to deflate your ISUPs between uses and instead prefer to display them in the home, on the lanai, or as a crown on the roof of your vehicle. Once again we find how the Elemental Wave Ten6 shines above the rest. The design aesthetics of this board were born from a love affair of art and adventure, with a carefree aura of Hawaiian surf culture. You may as well invest in a wall-mount to exhibit this beautiful watercraft.
4. The Most Economical of Premium ISUPs
There are a number of factors to consider when deciding upon how much you should pay for a paddle board. For one, you need a SUP you can travel with without having to pay inordinate amounts in oversize baggage fees. You also have to consider the cost of accessories needed to use and get the most out of your SUP. In addition, you don’t want to have to buy more than one board to enjoy on different “playing fields” as you go from lake and river channel to ocean harbor and coast. Lastly, you want something that is built to last (more on this below).
As the lowest cost option (view price) of our premium ISUPs the Elemental Wave Ten6 offers the best experience for your investment. We even offer FREE shipping across Canada. And because the board comes with all of the gear and accessories that you need to paddle out from the moment of purchase you don’t have to go out and buy a single thing to get started. Well, aside from some great new bikinis and board shorts!
5. It Will Last a Lifetime
We conclude with what may be the strongest selling point for any savvy ISUP enthusiast. The “best all around ISUP” is one that will last a lifetime. Isn’t that too big of an ask, you ask? It’s a fair question, because who has ever heard of any piece of outdoor adventure equipment making it through five or 10-years much less a generation? Well, at Sea Gods, we envision a world where that is not a bonus but an expectation of the deserving public.
The Elemental Wave Ten6 is manufactured using surpassed military-grade materials. We’re talking PVC ULF technology and double reinforced heat-molded seams, super-reinforced 12800/M2 drop-stitch fabric, UV-protective spray glazing, pressure-fit Kumano plugs (fin box), and more. We have so much faith in this board that we are providing you with confidence too, via our lifetime warranty on the Elemental and all of our ISUPs and accessories.
