We call the Max our SUV of SUPs because it’s built to handle whatever you throw at it. Its extra-large, all-around shape means it’s extremely stable and forgiving whether you’re paddling tandem, with kids, pets, or your fishing rig. Its full-length traction pad means there’s generous space with plenty of grip to move around on deck, even with the kiddos onboard, or dogs underfoot. Whether you’re fighting a fish, or finding your center practicing yoga, the Max is a stable platform that’s built to perform for all activities and a wide range of paddlers. Its versatile all-around shape means it’ll tackle lakes, rivers, and ocean bays with ease. While it may not be the most agile board in our lineup, its bombproof construction and stability mean it’ll keep you, your gear, and your passengers high and dry.
