For a long term series, aka the One Board Quiver, I wanted to take a closer look at the classic all-around SUP shape. To put it through its paces at a level no paddling writer ever does. This will be like what Motor Trend magazine does with it’s long term reviews. I’m going to surf it. I’m going to do a long tour with it. It’s coming on vacation. I’ll paddle tandem with my young kid. I’ll try surfing with my kid. I’ll let a complete beginner try it out. If I can find a local surf-class race, it’s going to be my ride. I’ll speed test it in flatwater and chop. By the end of this test, you’ll know exactly what to expect from an all-around board.
