The Riviera 12'6" is a perfect board for first time paddlers, and the most stable board we make. The voyager is designed for someone who wants to paddle flatwater or mild open ocean conditions. It has all the features of a raceboard but has been toned down making it more stable and user friendly. It is equipped with 14 leash plugs on the nose and tail to tie down all your gear. The Displacement hull make this board cut through the water efficiently, making long paddles much easier than a standard surfboard shape cruiser.
