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 Touring 12’0″
A premium tourer, the 12’0” Archer has been designed to eat up the miles whilst carrying all the gear you could ever need. It maintains the 33” width of our Archer Allround models but the big increase in length as well as the narrower nose and tail means it’ll glide through the water with ease. You’ll feel the effect of every paddle stroke as you gain speed and track true whether you’re open-ocean paddling or undertaking a long river voyage. The 6” thick deck is designed to be loaded up with all your kit so the weight keeps your centre of gravity low helping with stability as you tackle extended exploratory paddles.
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.
