During the last several months, we have made quite a few trips. The most notable ones have been a 2-week overseas paddle board adventure to Greece and a 7-day paddle board camping expedition to the Florida Keys.
While on these trips we used several pieces of equipment that we would like to talk about.
Th first piece of equipment is the Coreban Mammoth. It is an 11’0 x 36” x 4 3/4” board with a volume of 245 liters making it perfect for all sizes and abilities. It comes in three different types of construction, Coreban’s Pure, Core and Soft Top Dura Core.
We chose to use the Coreban Mammoth Core along with two Coreban BG’s ISUPs during our paddle board camping Keys trip (more on the Coreban BG’s in the future). This board was given to Keith who is a great skier/ice climber but a novice when it comes to melted water.
The Mammoth was able to carry Keith weighing in at 190 lbs, all of his gear and some of our food. Since it does not come with any built-in tie-down straps we used a suction cup system from SUPTHINGS to hold all the gear. There was enough room to distribute the gear on the nose and tail of the board.
Even though the Mammoth is a larger board it still moved smoothly and swiftly on the water without sacrificing speed. The board was able to handle flat water and heavy chop with no issues.
On a side note, we have used Mammoth boards for several demos and as of this date we have not had any one who could not paddle or did not like this board. So if you are planning on taking your kids out, your dog out, practicing yoga or just going for a leisurely paddle this board is great for all of those things combined.
A true all around board, for everything from a day paddle to a week long camping trip.
The SUP Guide & Adventure Store’s primary goal is to introduce and educate people on how to get on the water and stand up paddle safely. We are primarily a SUP GUIDE and outfitter location. We paddle almost every day, we have no sales pitch, only great advice on paddling! We pour our time and energy into the water and stand up paddling. For us, this is a lot more than a business, it is a lifestyle. So, please check out our store on Madeira Beach or our online inventory at http://pinterest.com/yogaenergy
