Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

The Jimmy Styks Miler is a non-inflatable touring board designed for beginner to intermediate level paddlers. Priced at just over $1,000, the Miler sits in the popular mid-tier market in terms of affordability and has a few unique features that sets it apart from other boards in this category. The board is pretty heavy and hard to carry but is seemingly strong in its construction. The board was designed for paddling mid-range to long distances and should be used primarily for touring and exploring.

First Impressions

At first look, the Miler has some really nice mix of colors and graphics that are desirable for both male and female paddlers. The design of the board is pretty average for boards in this category but there are a some unique features that make it stand out. The board has a really easy fin system unique to the brand called the click-n-go which makes putting your fin on and taking it off the board extremely easy. The board is pretty heavy weighing over 31lbs which makes it difficult to carry but the glide on the board is fast and it feels stable. The board also comes with a leash, paddle and board bag making it a great package at its price point.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    Touring

    Paddle Boards fall into two broad categories, All-Around and Specialty boards, with all-around designed primarily for recreation while speciality boards for top performance in specific disciplines

  • Durability

    Durable

    Durability is largely a result of the board construction and shape, with more durable boards typically carrying more materials (added layers, PVC, etc) and as such adding to the weight.

  • Carrying

    Difficult

    Carrying ease is determined by board weight and handle type, where a board weighing under 20lbs with a Liftsup handle is extremely easy to carry while a 35+lbs board quite difficult.

  • Stability

    Stable

    Stability is a product of construction and shape, where boards w/ 30”+ wide and 200+ liters in volume offer plenty of stability for your AVG adult while a board under 26” wide is a challenge.

  • Glide

    Fast

    Glide is a result of board shape and construction, w/ boards weighing under 30lbs and designed for racing offering best glide while recreational boards normally being on the slow side.
