Featured Review

Badfish River Surfer 611 by Boardworks SUP
stars by Bobby
I surfed this board all summer in low water drought conditions at my local park and loved it. It carves, spins, and shreds on the smallest of waves. Pros: Quick edge to edge. Smooth rails. Turns easy. Easy to fit in a small, steep wave. Cons: Wish it was lighter, and wish there was a 5'11" too...for really low water features
