New SUP from Imagine Surfboards..
Corran Addison was an Olympic kayaker and the designer for two successful sea and whitewater kayaking companies, Riot and Dagarossi. For the past few years, he's been making surf and river boards, and is now also doing stand up paddle boards. Much like his kayaks, his designs are innovative and unlike most of what's available for the sup market.
His new Stand Up 12 is a stable plastic board that has a hatch for extra gear, bungis to strap stuff down, a mini wheel for hauling, and an attachable kayak seat for sit down paddling (great for upwind!). You can also purchase his innovative paddle that can be a single or double bladed paddle for stand up or sit down paddling. An additional second hatch can be added for more gear. It retails for $780, comes in several colors, and is stackable in case you buy a few or are running a rental operation. More info: http://www.imaginesurfboards.com/eng/stand_up_12.html
