We had an amazing prone Paddleboard clinic with Cynthia Aguilar last week. There were so many parts and so much knowledge to take away that we decided to break it apart into a series. This is part 1: The Gear.

Water Bottles

Any bike water bottles will do. Cynthia loves using her own design with Polar Insulated 24 ounce Bottles. They keep your drinks cold. I will be adding a post on how with a utility knife, tubing from Home Depot and a bite valve from Camelbak, you can make your own water bottle/hose system.

Bottle Cages

Cynthia said not to bother makign your own bottle cage mount. There are three very good options for water bottle cages, systems that fit into a fin box mounted on top front of a paddleboard. There are single bottle cages, doubles, singles with a place for a Garmin, and doubles with a place for a Garmin or speed coach. These fit into a fin box just like a fin would go into the bottom of a board. There is a

Vent Plugs:

Coastal Eddie is an easy option for getting replacement vent plugs. They are cheap and NECESSARY if you have the kind that you can open and close manually as opposed to production boards that have the built-in two-way vents.

Replacement Vent Plugs $5.00
