Best Paddle Boards of 2020

Blondie

by Three Brothers Boards

This 10'6" SUP is designed to handle any condition you choose. Glides in the flat water, and excels in the surf. The full nose allows stability taking off and paddling through waves, while the pulled tail allows for easier turning and maneuverability. The rocker profile of this 10'6" paddle board has a mellow entry rocker to handle big waves, but easily catches the small stuff too. The tail rocker is slightly accelerated through the tail, allowing for easy turning and wave catching. The rails have nice, forgiving, 50/50 rail that flows into a crisp edge 2/3 of the way down, for a solid, crisp feeling in your turns. 2+1 fin setup with FCS side bites with a vent plug on the deck near the handle that fits your whole hand, instead of a knuckle or two. The thickness comes in at 5" with a width of 31" and a slight nose concave and subtle rolled vee coming through the fin. Light-weight at only 26 lbs with a 'tuck under' easy-grip handle.


Blondie Features:

  • Full nose for stability
