The Nalu 11 is a great entry level board for trying out SUP. It also functions as a sit on top kayak for when you need a spare boat....so it's handy to have a couple in your fleet.
Inexpensive, stable, and versatile. Extremely durable, and will handle tons of abuse such as rocky shores or multiple teen age boys goofing around on it . It has plenty of hook points and bungies, so you can strap on a small cooler and spend the day on the water.
The Nalu is vey heavy.....about 50 pounds. (but once you get used to it, you can carry it on your head using the two side handles, which makes it easy to get on your car roof). I don't like needing to use the footwells to stand in....it does keep you straight for paddling, but you really can't reposition yourself. Because it's hollow, it does flex quite a bit if you try standing anywhere else.
Great SUP for large large lakes. Very fast on flat water, tracks nicely, and is easy to control. Perfect starter or family SUP.
