Ryan took out the Stiletto to test its handling and speed at Bandemer Park in Ann Arbor. We purchased this board for the all around use of racing and touring. With the dimensions of 12'6" x 30" wide, the Stiletto offers excellent stability and ample volume at 290 liters to support leisurely paddle. With Jimmy Lewis' patented sandwich construction, this board offers some flex as it is not the typical stiff carbon fiber race board. The board also offers a recessed deck pad lowering the center of gravity of the rider for more stability. The board performs superbly in our conditions and is extremely light and fast for a 30" wide board. There are also lash downs on the front deck for storing your gear for a long day trip or overnight weekend trips. This is truly one of our favorite new boards currently in stock.
We enjoyed a late day fog paddle at Empire Beach. It was rather spooky leaving the beach as the fog had not burned off yet. But once the wind picked up and the sun came out we were greeted by the sand dunes of Sleeping Bear Dunes on either side of the beach. One of our absolute favorite spots for paddling in Michigan.
Yet another amazing park for paddling. You could paddle the small lakes or float the river with your board. We chose the Big Lake and a 3.2 mile round trip paddle to the lighthouse. Highly recommend the Pines campground here. Great facility with the dunes leading to Lake Michigan right behind the campground.
We have been lucky to have some amazing sunset paddles. We highly recommend Muskegn State Park with its beautiful sand beach.
SUFTC event was a huge success. Thank you to all our customers, supporters, and fellow paddlers we met at the event.
