    The Surftech Universal 12 ft. stand up paddleboard is ready to chase your endless summer.

    • Designed by shaping expert Randy French, this board is designed for stability and glide and is a great choice for flatwater touring and light surf
    • Very high volume and 240 lb. capacity makes this board an excellent choice for large paddlers
    • Full rails and a wide platform enhance stability
    • High-quality, pressure-molded EPS core is watertight; should you ding your board, water will not enter and weigh the board down as it might with cores of lesser quality
    • Waterproof EPS core is encased in multiple layers of fiberglass and high-quality epoxy resin to create a lightweight, highly responsive board; EPS core is fully recyclable
    • In addition to ensuring a comfortable experience underfoot, integrated Softop EVA deck offers reliable wax-free traction when paddling in the standing or kneeling position
    • Single center fin promotes straight tracking in the water
    • Center handle makes transporting the 42 lb. Universal 12 ft. paddleboard a breeze

    Surftech Universal 12' Stand Up Paddleboardis rated4.5out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromOpen water LuxuryBeing a heavy guy I found this board very buoyant for me and my dog! This board effortlessly glided over the water making it extremely fast. The composite martial that makes up the shell seems very durable. The full length foam top was comfortable to stand, sit, kneel, and lay on top off, while providing extra grip for my dog as she gleefully ran from one end to the other while I paddled. The handhold could be a bit deeper, or better grooved for a cupping hand, but does contain a nice bar I was able to use when clipping my pfd. I would bet you could lock your board fairly securely this way too. My only dislike was out of the water 12 feet is cumbersome walking it around corners, or in a stair well. Great board on the water!! Super light compared to its competitors when factoring both size, weight range, and strength!

    Rated4out of5byfromNice stable boardAs mentioned in the Amundson 11'10" review I have both boards as well as the 11'6" Universal and a Hemel Sidewalker. If you are say north of 250# I would say this and the Amundson should be on your short list. The SurfTech's construction method is really nice and while it does clean a little harder due to not being painted it is also more durable in that regard. Wax it first thing and cleaning is no longer much of an issue. I like the ride of the Amundson slightly better but you cannot go wrong with either.
