I’ve always loved the slim design and low profile concept of a SUP, but most of the surfing boards that I’ve tried don’t have the basic rigging options that you can find in a fishing kayak. The Angler BPS (blow molded) standup paddleboard from Imagine Surf is designed to bridge that gap, and offers anglers a stealthy board with enough options to rig it up like a fishing kayak.
A front hatch allows you to store a dry bag full of gear, or throw in some ice and keep fish cool, while bungees located throughout the board let you lash gear down quickly. The carry handles on the bow and stern of the board look comfortable and useful for loading the board onto your truck.
The wide board, at 35 inches, is stable enough so you can stand, paddle and fish with ease, instead of worrying about flipping and landing in the drink, with all your gear. A built-in flip-up back rest lets you take it easy when you want to relax after a hard fish fight or a long paddle to your spot.
Four rod mounts, two rod holders and two drag-anchor cleats let you customize your fishing setup to fit your exact needs and won’t limit your options. The blow molded construction means that you can give this board a beating and it will keep on fishing, without slowing down.
