Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

The NXT from Jimmy Styks is an all around paddle board best for beginner paddlers that want a board that can take a beating. The NXT is a non-inflatable paddle board made from blow-molded ironhide which makes it a rugged board great for recreational paddling with the whole family. The board is very stable, yet very heavy and difficult to carry. This board does come as a package deal with a paddle and leash so at a price point under $450 it’s a great deal.

First Impressions

At first look the NXT looks to be an incredibly solid board that is able to take a beating and last a long time. Ideally, this board should be used as a board for the whole family as an introductory board since it’s really stable, or it would work well as a rental board. The board is really difficult to carry weighing just over 40lbs thus affecting the glide and making it pretty slow on the water but it does come with a shoulder strap to help with the carrying. The graphics and design of the board are pretty basic and bland. This board is not meant to be paddled long distances and works best around the beach or dock.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    All Around

    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

    Rugged

    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

    Very 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

    Very 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

    Very Slow

    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.

  • Dimensions

    10'10" x 32" x 4.6"

    Industry standard in board dimensions reads: L (length, from nose to tail) x W (width, from rail to rail at midpoint length), and H (height, from top to bottom of board at midpoint length).

  • Weight

    40.03 lbs

    Standup paddle boards tend to fall into 4 different weight classes: extremely lightweight (under 20 lbs), lightweight (20-28 lbs), average weight (28-35 lbs), heavy (above 35 lbs).

  • Volume

    196 L

    Volume is a key metric to determine how much weight a board can carry. Boards w/ 200+ liters offer most floatation with boards under 150 liters typically for high-performance surf.

  • Capacity

    280 lbs

    Capacity is the max cargo weight a stand up paddle board can carry, considering not only the paddler’s weight but whatever else the paddler may choose to carry alongside him/her.

  • Add On's

    Bungee/Shoulder Strap/Paddle/Leash/Click-n-Go Fin

    Add-on’s include bungee cords, a minimalist way to haul things; Connexsup, which allows for all sorts of attachments, even fishing rods; and FCS II/Connect, for easy fin instal.

  • Handle

    Ergo Well

    Handles directly affect carrying ease, with external grip handles (Liftsup & EZgrab) offering most comfort, Internal Ergo Grip the mid-tier comfort, and box handles as least comfortable.

  • Holders

    No

    Fishing rod holders and/or paddle holders can make paddling that much more pleasant, esp. when needing holders for the rod or having a safe place for the paddle during yoga.
