SAN DIEGO, California - Have you ever tried throwing a 17 pound bowling ball into your standup paddle board? Chances are you haven't and that's because you would destroy your prized possession, but that is exactly what the team at Pau Hana Surf Supply is doing with their new Big EZ standup paddle board.
A few weeks ago at the 2015 Outdoor Retailer show, the booth at Pau Hana was one that had a huge number of visits, largely due to their new Ricochet technology in which they were demonstrating by allowing consumers and just about anyone the chance to take their shot at swinging a 17 pound bowling ball into their brand new Big EZ Armored with Ricochet™ SUP to see first-hand the durability of their new board. The result: amazing! The board was able to handle more than you would think and the damage sustained to the board was rather minimal considering how big of a beating it took. Take a look at the video below to see what we mean and to learn more about the new 11' Big EZ armored with Ricochet™.
