Whitewater SUP Package

Whitewater SUP Package

Here's a package for all of the whitewater SUPers out there. We have tried a number of whitewater SUP boards and nothing compares to the 2014 Starboard Astro Stream 9’6. We're offering a three piece breakdown Werner Carve adjustable paddle, the MTI Thunder R-Spec vest, a Dakine SUP Coiled Leash and a water helmet from Triple 8.
