Cynthia Aguilar Prone Paddleboard: The Gear

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.

There are single bottle cages, doubles, singles with a place for a Garmin, and doubles with a place for a Garmin or speed coach.

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
