The Yolo Yak could quite possibly be the toughest SUP on Earth. It’s heavy duty, made of roto-molded polyethelene. It’s a beast. It is hard to paddle in strong currents and wind, but super stable. You can fit 5 kids on this thing as a floating dock. It can handle all your gear. It is a cruising, fishing machine.You can drag it down to bank, on the dock, hit cleats and pilings and never think twice. You can even leave it in the sun. It’ll expand, but you vent it and it’ll return to its original shape.

There are also places to lock it on your dock with a bike lock. This is the perfect rental fleet board as there’s no one on Earth who can break it, it’s as stable as a dock and  it can accomodate someone up to 300 pounds. AND, it’s inexpensive. At $695 retail, it’s a fish craft carrier worth grabbing. The drawback is that it’s almost 60 pounds, so it’s not a board you’ll throw on the roof of your car and go paddle. It’ll take 2 people to put it on a rack and dragging it from the front or back handles is best with a person on each end. It’s not something you’d take into or through surf. That’s just a heads-up. It’s best for a lake or calm waterways when you’re not in a hurry. THis is not a training board. This is not a surf board. It’s a cruising, fishing beast.

For fishing it’s awesome because rod holders fit in there perfectly. You can order them with your board.
