Tahoe SUP Paddle Board Review: 11′ PaddleCraft
I was fortunate enough to be contacted by Nate form Tahoe SUP and asked to test and review some of his boards. I happily said yes and after riding them all for a while, I am excited to tell you about them. The first being the PaddleCraft and then we will talk about Zephyr and the Tahoe Bliss in another article which I will hyperlink here.
Now just so you know, I do not claim to be a pro paddle boarder, I am just an everyday guy who loves paddle boarding so I will be giving you my thoughts about the board from an everyday average enthusiast perspective.
Unboxing The Paddlecraft
Now it did come fully padded with foam but I pulled that off. As you can see it has a nice sock that is thin (beside the board) that helps protect it from scratching.
On the side of the box was the 10″ fin and then they happened to throw in a Tahoe SUPack for me to try out (thank you!) as well as their Tahoe SUP Leash and a deck net.

About Koreguard Construction:
The Deck Pad
The deck pad is sooo nice. It is soft yet not too soft and has excellent grip. It is comfy on the feet and I even got it dirty but it cleaned right off. It also has appealing colors that really match the board. The design team did well with this board.
So Let’s Get To It, How Does The PaddleCraft Ride?
What About Speed?
My Overall Thoughts About The PaddleCraft SUP
Thank you Nate and Tahoe SUP for making me want to spend money and buy your boards….lol. But seriously, This is a great board and thank you for trusting me to review it as if it was bad or had flaws, I would be honest and let everyone know, but this is really a great board. I really love the look of the Seas foam green board in this model as well, so be sure to check that out here.
I look forward to reviewing the next 2 boards, the Tahoe SUP Zephyr, and the Tahoe SUP Bliss in fuchsia. We will see how these touring boards live up to their reputation.
