The Walden Magic Model 9’4″ Stand up Paddleboard (SUP) is designed as a hybrid board. Firstly it delivers outstanding performance in the surf for the more capable paddler, and secondly it offers female and lighter paddlers a compact, yet stable option for flat-water.
Like all Magic Models this SUP features Walden’s patented hull design. Single concave runs from the nose through to the midpoint creating lift and stability, then a double concave extends towards the tail to maintain sensitivity when riding waves.
A smooth, continuous rocker and a moderate amount of vee out through the tail keeps it highly maneuverable, while the bevel running around the perimeter of the board adds forgiveness in more critical situations.
The step-deck reduces the volume in the rail, which allows the board to sit high in the water, while keeping it responsive through turns.
Other features include the 4 + 1 fin configuration, deck pad with an arch bar and kick and a clear textured traction that runs to the nose.
If you like riding waves but still want the added stability that comes with a fuller outline, or you’re a lighter paddler who doesn’t want a longer board, the Walden 9’4″ SUP is a great choice.
Approx board weight: 10.26kg/22.6lbs.

X3 Epoxy Construction
X-3 Epoxy was created specifically to capitalize on the strength and durability of a multi-layered sandwich construction, with the added advantage of reduced weight and more flex. The unique combination of materials used in this construction creates a board with a lively feel that literally springs off the bottom.
Proven to add significant performance to SUP boards due to the added drive, acceleration and glide, the strength of X-3 Epoxy is also perfect for traveling surfers looking to strike a balance between durability and performance.
Designed and Patented by Steve Walden, the Magic bottom is a complex design including chines and single to double concave features. Walden's specific combination and placements create a board that has great lift and speed but also initiates turns easily.
This is a modification of the Magic design by Steve Walden. The step design allows for a more sensitive rail on a very thick board.
