Amazing board. The shape of this board offers performance, stability, comfort, and style. The butterfly carrying handle is the easiest carrying system I have found in a SUP to date. It makes a 25 lb board feel less than 10 lb. Highly recommend this board and the VESL brand.
Performance shape, stability, butterfly carrying handle.
All other boards aren't made like these.
Flat water, surf, touring.
My Vesl Nautilus is an all around choice as my wife and I do a little of all the paddling venues. We do flat water lake paddling, some coastal Pacific Ocean cruising and we get our fair share of waves riding on the central coast of California. We couldn't be happier since we have found SUP for our travel, exercise and adrenalin needs. Outdoor pursuits are our prime choice for enjoying our lives in a healthy and varied way. We look forward to each new adventure and this year will being heading to Arkansas for some lake and river SUP, around the Eureka Springs area.
Vesl pros would include the light weight boards, the amazing overall finish, the ergonomic butterfly grip, the buying experience from the staff, the quality of both board and paddle and the performance characteristics. Glide, maneuverability, durability and overall style contribute to the plus side of the products. Fair pricing adds to the pleasant nature of Vesl
I haven't found anything I dislike about the Vesl product line. Every aspect is far above average. There is enough in the overall line to satisfy anyone who is looking for an SUP product.
Paddle surfing, lake paddling, river cruising, ocean coastal tours and now and then a friendly race, like the Jay Race in Santa Cruz, Ca.
