Tail is a Round Pin with Double Plugs

Round pin tails allow for smoother transitions from rail-to-rail when surfing. And the doble leash plugs helps offset the pull on the tail, reducing the chances of the plug tearing off the tail of the board.

2+1 Fin Setup

Single fin with side fin boxes allows for a versatile fin setup, giving flexibility for rider to find the fin setup that better fit his waves and surf style.

"Floaty" Rails

High on Durability

The extra weight on the board is somewhat mitigated by the handle, but always keep in mind the weight/durability calculus.

Pressure Valve

Andre Niemeyer's Notes


Summary

The 10'6" Tesoro Standup Paddle Board by Rogue SUP scores high on durability and affordability, with design features that make it very suitable for a beginner who is looking for a board to be used primairly in the surf but which can also be taken out for a paddle on flatwater.

 

Pros

The board is built to last. With a multiple stringer system and an exceptionally strong molded construction, the Tesoro feels really resistant to chipping, dings, and pressure dings. Plus it will have to take an unusually hard beating before it comes anywhere near to breaking in half, buckling, or such. Its surfboard-like shape adds to its usability in that it can be taken out either on waves or flatwater. And the price point at $950 (suggested retail) makes it all the more attractive.

 

Cons

Durability nearly always comes at a price. And here is no exception. The exceptionally strong construction adds quite a bit of weight to the board, leading to a compromise in both surfing performance and ease when handling the board around. Also on the performance front, the Tesoro's foil (volume distribution) is designed for beginners, with some extra thickness being carried out through the rails. That compromises surfing maneueverability but adds to the stability factor, helping beginners to stand.

Disclaimer: Andre Niemeyer's notes are taken from a one-time use and assessment. Several features were gauged, ranging from design and construction to pricepoint and usability. Now some of these features, such as durability, may receive an initial assessment based on the construction materials and foil, among other things. But this is not a final and definitive assessment. For some features, durability included, any final and definitive assessment requires a longitudinal study. No such study has been made for Andre Niemeyer's notes. These notes are initial, not final, assessment reports.
