“I have been paddleboarding for a year now. The SUP’s Nu Wave has designed are perfect for anything you want to do with them. Whether you are surfing, fishing, exercising they will meet every need. I primarily fish off mine and the advantages it has given me have been un-real. I can get off the ”beaten path” and explore new areas that offer great fishing and beautiful scenery that has not yet been interrupted. I encourage everyone to get on one and enjoy the fun they have to offer.”
Watch TJ take his Nu Wave board fishing in the Thousand Island in this segment from Pure Ocean TV.
“I started surfing in the 60’s and rode everything from heavy singlefin longboards to twinfins, quads, funshapes, and back to longboards. When I saw people on SUPs, it immediately got my interest. I thought it would be a good way to stay in shape when it was flat. I loved it from the first time I tried it. I didn’t think I would surf it, but after I caught my first wave on my SUP, I was hooked. The NuWave paddleboards are the best and I have had the pleasure of turning many of my friends on to the sport of paddleboarding.”
“I bought my first SUP board from Dewey about 5 years ago. It was a 12″6″ Laird Hamilton knockoff that I was never able to surf very well on. What I found out though, is that I just love to paddle. I’ll paddle in the ocean or paddle in the Banana River or even the Santa Fe River in north Florida. I’ll paddle in groups, or paddle by myself. I’ll paddle when it’s calm out or paddle a downwinder when it’s blowing 20 knotts. I love to be out getting great exercise in the natural beauty of our hometown. I’ll weave different courses around and through the Thousand Islands and see something different every time. One day it’s dolphins and manatees, next it’ll be Roseate Spoonbills or White Pelicans. I’ve seen otters, rays, horseshoe crabs, mullet, reds, and lot’s of migratory ducks out there, and I’ve been knocked off of my board 4 times now by panicked Manatees. I have 2 SUP boards now, a 9’9″ NuWave moontail for surfing, and a 12’6″ raceboard for when I’m just paddling in the river. I’m on one or the other at least 3-4 times a week.”
Just wanted to say that there are so many choices these days of which SUP to buy. I currently have 7 personal SUPs, with my last two being the NuWave 9’ 2” and the 9’ 9”, both being Moon Tails. I absolutely love these boards. I started with somewhat longer boards and have worked my way down to these two. Currently, I weight about 210 and have been involved in surfing both short and long surfboards, since 1963 as well as wave-sailing on short windsurf boards. The other brands of SUPs that I own are all fine, but lack something in the waves. I wanted to be able to nose-ride, plus be able to do radical turns and some various tricks, but still have good stability with the boards (these boards are BOTH surprisingly stable…even at my weight). On the other boards (all are expensive, well-known name brands, BTW), I seemed limited to what I could pull off in the waves. The really nice things about the NuWave boards is that they surf VERY well, have an excellent shape for nose-riding, catch waves easily, punch nicely through whitewater when paddling out, handle choppy conditions pretty well, plus I can go on trips of several miles on open flat water if I want, because they glide so well. These boards seem to provide EVERYTHING I want in an SUP. I’ll likely be getting rid of most of my other boards, as I doubt I’ll be using them anymore, now that I have the NuWave’s.
