Escape on the Navio day tour stand up paddle board for an afternoon adventure. The only SUP on the market to feature a keel line, it paddles straighter and with less effort for a quiet stable ride. Originally designed in 2006, the Navio is the latest version of a keel hull paddle board that was the first of its kind in SUP. This model features a keel extending from the nose and extending all the way down to the tail. The Navio won’t get blown off course in the wind, It tracks amazingly straight and glides effortlessly through the water. The double concave channels the water down the length of the board and silences choppy waves. Full rails add to the secondary stability which makes the board forgiving. This is one of the best paddle board choices for a day tour in a lake or cruising in wetlands along the coast. This is the best keel hull paddle board.
