I tried SUP last year and got hooked. Unfortunately I live in Sweden and our weather... sucks. Now it's March and the lake near me is still frozen...anyway:
Thinking of buying a new SUP and it's hard to find information out there. I've been leaning towards Aqua Marina because I can chose a seat later or maybe an motor for fishing etc. and the brand seems to have a pretty good reputation.
Close to where I live they will sell the Aqua Marina hyper 11,6 for a good price. I wish they sold the 12,6 but unfortunately they don't. It's hard to get the 12,6 here in Sweden I'd you don't pay a lot of money. The problem is that I'm 192cm and weighs around 90-95kg. Will that be a problem? I read that the recommended max weight is 90kg. It's hard to get the 12,6 here in Sweden if you don't pay a lot of money and the place that sells the 11,6 is literally around the corner.
I olso had my eyes on NKX flash from euroskateshop (I can't send link because I'm a new member) But my guess is that the Aqua Marina is worth the extra money?
Sweden isn't unfortunately filled with SUP information and retailers. That's why the Hyper would be a good option because it's from a well known brand and the store that sells it is well known as well.
BTW. I will mostly use it on a very calm lake 100m from where I live.
