I tested the Airboard Travel SUP thoroughly for a couple of months and also gave it to a wide range of paddlers to try out: from tourists and children to experienced whitewater kayakers.
I tested the Pelican Flow 106X SUP, a board not like many others. For a start, it’s made of thermoform plastic, which is quite normal for Pelican kayaks, but is hardly ever seen in SUPs. And then there is the question which environment the board is made for. Pelican typically makes boats for recreation and touring, but the looks of this board obviously flirt with whitewater. We’ll get to the details below, but let’s just start by saying that this board fills some very specific niches.
