The Archer is the product of years of experience in SUP manufacturing, all culminating into this fantastic range of inflatable SUPs, brand new for 2020. At 33” inches wide they are a relatively progressive design but will still work well for an entry-level paddler with good balance who is looking to improve quickly, or an intermediate paddler who wants to test their limits.
The build is lightweight, utilising a combination of our DWF (double wall fabric) and twin PVC stiffening strips on the top and bottom. The stiffening strips mean the Archer can maintain the rigidity and tensile strength of a double layer board but still be incredibly light. The result is an easy-to-transport, agile board with a high performance feel that will inspire confidence in choppier waters thanks to its strength. If you’re riding waves, open ocean swells or white-water rivers, these stylish boards will feel right at home.
The Archer Allround XL 10’10”
This 10’10” x 33” x 6” model has been designed as an allround board for larger adults that rides higher in the water due to the extra 6” thickness. While this board is recommended for riders over about 95kg, it does come with a maximum payload rating of up to 200kg meaning that you could take an additional passenger if required. The 10’10 length helps with tracking and stability whilst also offering extra room for a passenger or cargo for those long days on the water. The 33” width means this XL board can maintain some agility so it’s still suitable for catching small waves and navigating a lineup or tackling white-water sections on rivers.
Our aluminium paddle that comes supplied with this package does the basics and it does them well with the reassurance of ultimate durability. This paddle has been designed to deal with all the bumps, scrapes and drops you or your kids may put it through when learning how to stand-up paddleboard. It features a painted aluminium shaft and a contoured P.U blade, both of which are tough, effective and easy to handle. The quick release clasp makes it easily adjustable so you can set the correct height for whoever is paddling and the shaft can also be broken down into two pieces to make transportation easy.
