Most fresh water surfing is done when both the water and air are cold. Last weeks many Michigan surfers go to enjoy relatively warm temperatures for a rare summer swell. Chris Matulis was able to test the new Matuli soft top surfboard.
In Michigan there are endless places to go and see on a paddle board. We wanted to have a board that we could take with us everywhere. Most paddleboards are about 11 feet long and are not easy to transport. You never know when you will have a extra half hour somewhere to go for a paddle. With our inflatable sup, you can always keep a board in the trunk,of your car, or on your boat, ready for a Pure Michigan style adventure. The boards inflate to 15 psi in about 5 min.
Matuli now has a high performance durable inflatable option for our Spring 2016 board lineup. Inflatable SUP’s are perfect for rivers and for those who want the flexibility of not using a roof rack. The boards are lightweight and can fit into a large backpack, when deflated. Each board comes with a high pressure pump.
Our new Kids SUP was designed for boarders under 95 lbs. This board features EVA foam bumpers around the board rails. A wide square tail was added to increased stability. Our kids board is 9 feet long and 25.5 inches wide.
Karol Garrison and Seth Haley teamed up to get some amazing footage at the St. Joseph pier, Lake Michigan, on a Matuli 10.6 paddleboard. Lake Ice can never be assumed to be safe. For more information about ice safety check Tom Gill’s article in the Huffington Post
