I'm looking to sell one of my paddle boards as I don't spend as much time on it as I should.
The board is a Jobe 12'6" Bamboo displacement SUP, specs as follows:
Weight: 28lbs (ish, I haven't actually weighed it, this is from the manufacturer. I know someone with the same board who weighed it in at 26lbs)
Max User Weight: 264lbs (I believe this is only applicable to an experienced paddler. A beginner paddler at that weight will definitely feel less stable until they spend some time on the board and get used to it. I would consider a beginner user weight capacity to be closer to 200lbs)
This board is great for the paddler looking for exercise and covering ground. I used to paddle my 10'6" planing board to cover big water and I always struggled until I got this board. It's very efficient, I can get about 10 paddle strokes per side before needing to switch (I get about 4-5 on the planing board), it cuts through the water very well which helps A LOT if you want to still get out (or are caught out) despite a breeze or wind picking up. I have paddled in winds up to around 15mph, I'm sure I could go a little higher but it would certainly be less fun unless you're into type 2 fun!
The foam core is wrapped in fiberglass and bamboo with a final layer of epoxy hot coat, the deck pad is slightly elongated to help provide comfort in multiple paddling positions, as well as grip for kick turning. The squared tail also helps with stability during kick turns. There are two sections with bungees to help hold any gear you want to take with. The handle curves inside a little creating a lot of comfort for carrying. The fin is an older generation from what Jobe currently uses, it is 12" long (instead of 9-10) and wider providing a better tracking and more stability than the new one.
The board as always been stored in my garage, never left outside. I have only transported it with my Yakima SupDawg. I have always done a wet entry and exit so the board has never run up against anything, the fin has a little bit of scuffing on the bottom as I have used it to keep the board from floating away at beaches and landings, this way I don't have to lay the board itself on anything. Due to the black rubber on my Yakima rack there is a some discoloration on the board where it lays, I imagine this will come off pretty easily with a Magic Eraser. If I get interest in the board I will work on that, but if I haven't sold it by the time warm water gets here I will continue to use it and clean it later.
The board retailed for $1399, included in my price at $1000 is a Jobe board bag (retailed at $199) a paddle from Accent, the Max Carbon with Leverlock adjustment from 70-86" (retailed for $189), and a coiled ankle leash.
The paddle is something I will need to replace ASAP if I sell as it is the only paddle I have, I wanted someone to have the option so they would be set up right away. If anyone interested does not need or want the paddle I will reduce the price to $900.
I am open to reasonable offers, or trades for a canoe (solo or tandem) depending on model, condition, construction.
Please do not ask if the board is available, or questions about information easily found in this ad, I know there can be a lot of junk e-mails coming from this. Serious inquiries only please.
