The 12'6 Elite comes in 2 widths, 30" wide for the more proficient paddler wanting even more speed and 32" wide for the paddler wanting a great leisure paddling experience with more stability but with a slightly slower glide. These 2 boards come with front and back cargo loops so you can enjoy strapping all your kit to the board ready for any adventure, whether it be paddling with your dog or child sat on the front, or a fully loaded board ready for an overnight adventure. The 12'6 also comes with a bendy touring fin ready for any low tide or rock eventuality.
