Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

If you’re looking for an XXL or group SUP as we like to call it here at Supconnect then the Pau Hana Bimini is worth taking a look at. The Bimini was built with a focus towards fishing but can be used for group paddling and fun. The board is best for paddling only short distances around the beach and dock but does have the capability of attaching a motor to it if you want to take it long distances. The board is at a premium price but packs a lot of fun with it.

First Impressions

On first impression the Pau Hana Bimini was a board that just screamed a good time. With multiple handles strategically placed throughout the board it’s very easy to carry with a few of your closest friends. The board can fit up to six paddlers comfortably the glide is slow which is to be expected with boards of this size and shape. The board also seems pretty durable and it has reinforced PVC side rails. The Bimini comes with a 3-piece paddle, two pumps, a travel bag and a gas outboard attachment point which is very handy if you want to add a motor to the board. Overall, the board is an awesome time and packs loads of fun for the entire group.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    Group SUP 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

    Very 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.

  • Very Difficult

    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

    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

    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.
