Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

If you’re looking for a stable inflatable, race/touring board to paddle then the One from Naish is worth a look. This stand up paddle (SUP) board comes in a double drop stitch technology, which is durable and has its ups and downs. The board is 30 inches wide making the board pretty stable and the board has 2.01 lbs per foot and weighs 25.1 lbs total which is lightweight for a board that is 12’6”. Its shape makes the One a race/touring board that can be used by intermediate paddlers and was designed for both recreation and competition. Its construction and shape combined best fit this board for mid to long-distance paddling between 3-10 miles plus. Retailing at $1,249, the board is in the popular mid-tier market in terms of affordability.

First Impressions

On first impressions, the graphics and color are good, the shape design is quite average and the construction strikes as durable. The One has some nice looks, coming with an interesting mix of colors and graphics, perfectly suited towards the race scene. The shape design is commonplace for boards in these categories with features created primarily for recreational touring or competitive racing. The construction does appear durable but should be handled carefully as to not puncture any holes. This paddle board is easy to carry since it weighs only 25 lbs and the glide feels somewhat slow. The bag it comes it is very complimentary to the board design and it comes equipped with bungees and pull hooks. Once you put it all together, the One is a stable board that most people should be able to stand on it easily and paddle away.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    Touring Use

    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

    Strong

    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

    Easy

    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

    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.

Features

  • Dimensions

    12'6" x 30" x 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

    25.1 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

    265

    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

    230 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, Pull Hooks

    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

    Strap

    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.
