BEST FOR: Surfing.
THE TEST: A couple years back, we reviewed a Surf Music SUP designed by legend Gerry Lopez. While it surfed relatively well, it was a little narrow and low volume for a non-pro to ride confidently in all conditions. So we were surprisingly stoked on the design of this new iteration. At a coffee-table-stable width of 34 inches (six inches wider than the old one), it makes surfers of any level feel solid and sturdy in the lineup. And though it does take a fair bit of mojo to get the Surf Music up to speed and on a wave, once you’ve caught it the Surf Music has a loose and lively feel.
THE VERDICT: One of the easiest-surfing SUPs we’ve ever tested. 10' (also available in 9')
