Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

The Waterwalker from Thurso Surf is an affordable, inflatable paddle board that’s designed for beginner paddlers who are interested in an all around board. The Waterwalker is lightweight and easy to carry weighing just over 23lbs. The board is nice and stable and is best for paddling short distances, usually around the beach or dock. At a price point of $569 the Waterwalker sits in the popular mid-tier market in terms of affordability.

First Impressions

At first glance the Waterwalker has a nice display of graphics making the inflatable appear to have a wood deck. The design seems pretty standard for boards in the all around category and the construction of the board does appear rather durable for an inflatable. The board felt really stable, the glide was average and it was also easy to carry. The board had a few extra add on’s as a bonus which add to the value of the package. The board comes with three fins: a main center fin and two side bites. It also came with a leash, pump, 3-piece paddle, cooler bag, and backpack all making the package a great value.

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

    Average

    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

    Average

    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

    11' x 32" 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

    23.15 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

    300 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

    350 L

    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/3 fin/Handle on Nose/3-piece paddle/coolerbag/backpack

    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.
