Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paddle around the lake or ocean and surf! I've had a chance to paddle this board in lots of different conditions and it has performed really well! On a windy choppy day in a lake it had the speed and stability I needed to get back to shore with ease. And it is so much fun to paddle out past the breaks at the beach, go for a cruise and catch a wave or two on the way back in! I also really dig the look and name! Dorky I know but every time I paddle it I say to myself "Release the Kraken!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun all around board I have paddled multiple sizes of the Kraken. This 11' length is a great board. Excellent glide for paddling in flatwater, performs well in the surf too. Because it has thinned out rails for surf performance, it is extra fun even when paddling on a lake. Wave graphics and wood veneer look even better in person. Solid construction and quality as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Kraken Love this board for it's all around awesomeness. You can tour on it, surf it, do yoga..whatever! I guess many boards you could do that on but this one PERFORMS! I also love the carrying handle. It pops out from the board making it so much easier to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fun SUP I just took my new board out for a trial run and was very pleased. It is very stable even in wind and speed boat wakes. It turns fairly well in calm water, but was difficult to do so in heavy wind and wake, not unexpected. It's easy to carry, not too heavy. As a 50 yr old, 5'7" woman, I can hoist it on top of my van by myself. The deck pad is comfortable with a nice grip. Fins were easy to install, requiring a flat head screwdriver. Does not come with bungee tie-down cording or leash, but has places to attach. I'm looking forward to a summer on this board!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made board, beautifully finished, great art Only had it in flat water and light chop so far. Handled both well. Not as stable nor as fast as my 11'6' KM cruiser but to be expected with its smaller dimensions and tapered shape. I expect it will surf better than the big KM. I'll find out this weekend. As for durability only time will tell but I expect it to last. The finish is beautiful and the carry handle is really convenient. The board is light so you can carry it like a suitcase.

Where can i get the extra fins for this board? also is the red available ?

Asked by: Skdemaree
This board uses the FCS fin box standard, so any FCS fins with the two vertical tabs on them will work in this board’s side slots. https://www.rei.com/b/fcs/c/paddleboard-accessories As of May 2017, we are out of stock of this board in the wood/red color and do not know when it may become available again.

Does this model have mounting holes for additional fins? Boardworks lists the 11' kraken as a 2+1 fin setup.

Asked by: Hudson Brower
Yes, you are able to mount additional fins to the Kraken Stand Up Paddle Board.
