Product Description

The X2 Bamboo 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 X2 Bamboo Explorer is made 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


X2 Epoxy

X-2 Epoxy is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin wood veneer wrapped around a Nanoweld EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that's particularly strong on the deck.

The durability and strength of X-2 Epoxy boards make them ideal for SUP's, surfers who like to travel, and heavy beach break conditions where other boards are prone to breaking. X-2 Epoxy boards feel solid under your feet and can take an absolute beating while maintaining their appearance for many years.
