Unlike most paddle boards labeled “youth paddle board” or “junior SUP”, the Adept is fully-featured stand up paddle board for teens with rigging front and rear, loads of D-rings for accessories and attachments like coolers, a kayak seat and more. Aspiring YouTubers will love the action cam mount! This is no children’s toy. It’s built with the same high tech materials and construction as our adult paddleboards and matches them in performance, safety, and stability. As a lightweight paddle board tailored for teenagers, it accelerates faster, is more maneuverable, and is easier to carry than full-sized SUPs. Plus, at 9 ft, there’s plenty of room to grow. As kids get bigger a few years down the line, the Adept will still see action as a nimble surf SUP or or family fun paddle board.
