To maintain balance and strength, seniors must work to improve their core. Improving strength and balance is critical not only to reduce the risk of falling, which is the number one cause of elderly injury in Canada but also to ensure a better quality of life. Stand-up paddle boarding is one of the best exercises for improving one’s core. Of course, you already know this, which is why you’re online in search of the best paddle board for seniors. Below is our recommendation for the spring and summer paddle boarding season ahead (and beyond).
Why the Sea Gods Diatom Ten6 CX is the Top Pick Paddle Board for Retirees Across Canada
Conveniences of an Inflatable Paddle Board
Before we dive into the specs of what makes the Sea Gods Diatom Ten6 CX the best board for mature paddlers, we must address the fact that an inflatable SUP is a way to go for seniors.
When compressed and placed within the wheeled hiking pack (which comes with purchase), it’s as easy to transport from your vehicle to the waterfront as the carry-on luggage you take on vacation. The deflation feature also makes storage at home easy, should you not have room for a 10-foot+ board in your home or garage.
Top Rated for Stability
Stability is generally the most desirable feature on a paddle board for seniors. You’d rather spend more time on the board than in the water. The Diatom Ten6 CX mitigates the risk of falling better than most other paddle boards on the market in Canada thanks to its long, wide, and voluminous dimensions of 10'6" x 34" x 6”. This board’s balancing act is further supported by its extra-strong PSI range for ultimate rigidity and military-grade materials used in the design.
While you may be confident in your ability to paddle without falling in your local waterway, you’re not so sure about others around you in the water. You’ll share “space” with other paddle boarders, kayakers, and possibly curious sea life. It’s not uncommon to get bumped by one of them. This concern is also reduced when you choose the Diatom Ten6 CX, thanks to double-reinforced military PVC rail construction and impact-resistant ULF technology that employs a fusion layer to seal drop stitch fabric.
Top Rated for Maneuverability
We know what you may be thinking. As one of the most durable and stable paddle boards on the market, it must be hard to turn, right? Not at all. It’s the opposite! The Diatom Ten6 CX is equally top-rated for maneuverability.
Despite the premium construction that can hold impressive rider weights up to 340 lbs, the inflatable stand-up paddle board weighs just 20 lbs. This helps make it easier to maneuver with the stroke of a paddle. Furthermore, the diamond pattern high traction EVA pad provides a soft, comfortable grip for excellent traction. This traction allows you to adjust your footing and weight to turn the board without slipping or tipping.
Top Rated for Convenience
You’ve put in your hard yards through life and, as a result, deserve convenience when it comes to your fitness and leisure activities. We can say with absolute certainty that the Sea Gods Diatom Ten6 CX (or any Sea Gods SUP, for that matter) is the most convenient paddle board for sale in Canada. Beyond the fact that it’s inflatable (as discussed above), what else makes it so?
This paddle board comes with ALL the accessories you need to get in the water from the moment it’s delivered to your doorstep. The Diatom Ten6 CX comes with an easy-to-adjust 3-piece carbon fiber paddle, click-in fin, leash, camera mount, pump, maintenance kit, wheeled hiking backpack, and more. Added benefits include bungee tie-downs that safely secure extra gear (drinks and snacks, etc.) and built-in portage handles that make carrying the inflated paddle board to/from the water easy.
All of these accessories are included with your purchase, which is convenient and cost-efficient!
Do you find yourself saying they don’t make cars like they used to? Do you say/feel the same about a number of other things (appliances, homes, etc.)? You’re not alone, and for the most part - you’re right. The important purchases you make in life should be considered an investment that will pay dividends for years to come. We feel this way about our paddle boards - including the Diatom Ten6 CX. We are so confident in this fact that we offer a 30-Day Love It or Return It Guarantee AND a Lifetime Guarantee.
