  • Besides providing a new way to get on the water, paddleboarding works core muscles and develops balance—it's perfect training for surfers, skiers and paddlers
  • Ideal for cruising on flat water and enjoying light surf, the Nalu offers those interested in stand up paddleboards great value and high durability
  • Low rocker from nose to tail provides high speed and straight tracking when paddling on flat water; design also handles light surf and rolling waves with ease
  • 11 ft. length maneuvers easily in waves and tracks well when exploring flat water; short length helps develop strength with a focus on balance and technique
  • Rotomolded polyethylene hull resists abrasion and UV light, and it offers good looks at a great value
  • Standing area features comfortable foot wells, and molded-in seat enhances comfort from the sitting position
  • Stern storage bungee secures accessories
  • Scupper drain holes prevent the Nalu from taking on water
  • Drainplug at bow evacuates excess water due to condensation
  • 3 in-molded fins promote straight tracking in the water; fins are low-profile and integrated in the hull to increase durability
  • Carry handles ease transport

by fromLoads of fun and for a great price too! I've had the Nalu for a couple of weeks and have taken it out in the marina a few times (flat water with some wake from boats). I absolutely love it! I was in the market for a kayak but the sales girl talked me into the SUP concept and then we saw this 2 for 1 boat! It handles really well and only took me about an hour to feel like a pro on it. I have found that I mostly SUP my Nalu but then I quickly drop down to kayak when I get tired. It also makes a great kayak...funny thing is, when I'm tired from kayaking I jump up and SUP since these use different muscle groups. I'm going to try surfing the waves on the ocean-side next time!

by fromVery Cool. Nalu is a winner Bought 2 NALUs & 2 hybrid paddles (REI does not carry) so we can SUP or kayak, depending on wind or fatigue or ? This is a highly functional hybrid- functions really well as an SUP or flatwater kayak, without sacrificing performance. NALU is a winner. Roto-molded plastic is bomb proof, and the cost for BOTH NALUs was about the same as one SUP board. Ocean Kayak has a winner here, and NALU could be sold as an SUP and/or a kayak, because it is both.

by fromTABOO paddle for use with NALU Looks like REI now carries this hybrid paddle: Carlisle Taboo Paddle is a good choice with the NALU SUP/Kayak. (deck bungies allow storage) Check Ocean Kayak's NALU video to see both. NALU is really a good product and gets 4 stars. Toboo has interchangeable blade or t-handle, for kayak or SUP. This is NOT a performance paddle, but it IS VERY versatile. I rate it at 2, maybe 3 stars for versatility.

by fromLove it Only board I have ever used so no comparison data. I have had it over a year and use it a lot (have yet to fall). We keep it at our lake cabin near the Oregon coast. My 40-something daughters love it. My 10 year old granddaughter loves it, my older grandkids also enjoy it. I got the paddle the other reviewers mentioned. It works well and the adjustable size is important due to the varied users. At 40 pounds, it is a bit heavy but the carry handle works well. I'm looking to get a 2nd and maybe a 3rd board this summer. Right now it looks like I'll go with another Ocean. The built in fins are nice given the variety of users (and the young age of some).

by fromBest of both worlds Can be a kayak, but is cheaper than a kayak. Can be a SUP board, but is cheaper than a SUP board. Really, it's the best of both worlds. My kids love it - it's a great beginners SUP board for my 10 year old. Plenty of balance, and plenty length for him to ferry around 1 or even 2 little people with him. I love it too. When kayaking, don't expect a full size kayak -- there's no seat back. But for short trips around the bay, it's perfect. I wish there were more options for a convertible paddle though.

by fromSUP WOW! What a great find. This vessel is one of the best out there. stable, manuverable(sp?), and everyone can use it. get yourself a nice paddle to go with it. the TABOO is ok, but not great. tracks great, turns with some effort. in the wind and against the tide it still glides!
