Product Description

The Adventure Paddleboarding Explorer Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) is perfectly suited to flat water cruising on lakes and inland waterways. Suited to all paddlers from beginner to experienced. Available in multiple sizes to suit all weight and age paddlers, this is an affordable SUP that’s rich in design features and performance.

The displacement shape of the Explorer is designed to cut through the water and provide great tracking capabilities. The chop-piercing nose sheds water to the rail, and is equally at home in smooth or mildly bumpy conditions. The flat bottom design is very stable and provides effortless glide and flow.

The subtle recess on the deck offers maximum comfort, and gives the rider additional control and balance by placing them closer to the waterline.

Other features include the ergonomic carry handle, textured deck traction, and extra nose plugs for creating a forward storage zone.

The X1 construction uses epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core. This versatile construction is lightweight, durable and has long-lasting flex properties.

The Explorer was designed to suit a variety of age groups. This is an affordable flat-water SUP packed with features that will provide hours of fun, and unlock endless possibilities on the water.

Technical Info


X1 Epoxy

X-1 Epoxy is a simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core. The EPS core is cut directly from the shapers files, and once custom shaped, is glassed in the traditional hand layup method with multiple layers of woven fiberglass imported form the USA.

This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is particularly suited to manufacturing SUP's. X-1 Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions.
