360 DIAMOND TRACTION PADPOP POP Paddleboards’ 360° diamond traction connects riders to their paddleboards with and ultra-tacky grip that’s firm and forgiving. The recessed diamond ridge design provides 360° of grip that keeps riders glued to our boards. Whether you are circling the buoys around the harbor or dropping in on an overhead wave, our trademark pad will allow you to seamlessly pull off the most critical maneuvers. There’s no blaming your next wipeout on traction-pad-slippage with POP’s diamond 360° traction pad.
GORTEX VENT PLUG POP uses a one-way military grade vent plug to release heat pressure buildup from the inside of our boards, without letting water in. The materials used in making most paddleboards can expand when exposed to high heat for extended periods of time. This can cause internal warping of the foam core and fiber glass, causing delaminating between the bonding layers of the board. For best results loosen the vent plug when racking your board on a hot day or setting it dockside under the hot sun.
HANDLE IT How do you make something that weighs 25lbs feel like 5lbs? Put a good handle on it. POP SUP boards feature our very own ergonomically recessed handles with ribbed finger grips for extra carrying comfort. No more finger cramping, the handle is designed to transfer the weight of the board from your finger tips to your hand and arm. We carefully position the handles on the center of our boards to give riders optimal balance, making our boards feel weightless carrying them to and from the water.
NATURE TECH WILDLY STRONG At POP, we’re always striving to enhance the quality of our products. Our latest line of paddle boards now features our wildly durable Nature-Tech Construction. Less fiber glass and the addition of a bamboo veneer has resulted in a tightly bonded, air tight SUP board that performs better than its predecessors. The use of bamboo, one of the strongest and lightest woods, also makes our paddle boards 10% stronger and 10% lighter, a difference that every rider can appreciate.
HOMEMADE PADDLEBOARDS Every SUP board crafted by POP is hand finished; ensuring the each board we shape receives a great deal of attention and soul. Our hand laid glassing fortifies the bonding between each layer, resulting in an evenly structured and lightweight paddle-board. Once dry, each board is hand painted with our signature color blocked designs and polished by hand for a sleek and glossy finish. Using these handmade techniques consistently enhances the build quality and integrity of our paddle boards.
ULTRA LIGHT Vacuum packed technology is used with Nature-Tech during our board construction process. Once glassed our boards are inserted into a plastic sleeve and vacuum packed to suck all the air out during the bonding process. This successfully reduces the overall weight of our SUP boards while increasing strength and durability. Using this premium construction method, riders can expect a POP board to weigh between 20-30lbs depending on the model selected.
