Stand up paddleboarding is super fun! Unless you lack the balance, core strength, and stamina of an Olympic athlete, in which case it's super fun for the first 15 minutes, and a shit show of falling into water, heaving yourself back out of the water, and hoping your back will only hurt for the next month or so for the remaining 75. That's why I kind of like Ocean Kayak's Nalu. Because I really like sitting on my ass, and this hybrid stand up/sit-on-top paddleboard facilitates that state of being for me.

At 11' long, the Nalu is a stable and maneuverable board that serves standers and sitters with equal enthusiasm. Rather than a typical flat platform/surfboard design, this hybrid has hollowed out a set of padded foot wells and a molded-in seating area for comfortable use on either two feet or two cheeks. It also features a wave-piercing displacement style bow and broad planning hull with integral tri-fin to make coasting through oceans and rivers an easy task from both positions, and for any skill level. The Nalu SUP is highly recommended for beginners and people who are active but cannot stand for long periods of time, plus for use on days with a lot of wind or otherwise choppy waters.

A bungee system on the stern deck serves as onboard storage and 2 side-mounted carry handles help transport the boat/board, as well as aid users climbing onto it from the water. The Nalu is made of virtually indestructible polyethylene. It weighs 44 pounds and has a maximum load capacity of 225 to 275 pounds.
