The Original 11'6 Paddle Board from Riviera
The Original 11'6x33" Stand Up Paddleboard is Ocean Extreme's number one selling SUP. Our customers love this board because it offers stability, ease of use, durability and a light-weight construction. It's easy for anyone to handle and comes at an affordable price that's pounds lighter than any board in it's price range and constructed much better.
The size and shape of this board makes it a great first board that paddles flat water well and also catches waves with ease for an entry level sup surf shape. 32" wide is a good size for your first paddleboard. It width offers enough stability to stand and still allows the board to glide with speed.
This board comes with a single fin setup with an 8" center fin box.
Full Dimensions: 11'6 x 33" x 4.75" 210L 29LBS
Is the 11'6 the right choice for me?
Do you plan on paddling more flat water than maybe taking it to the surf? Do you weigh over 200lbs? If you answered yes to these questions then the 10'6 is the perfect choice to get into paddle boarding.
If you weigh more than 200lbs or have stability/ balance issues, take a look at the 11'6x33" Riviera at the same price with more stability.
If you want to Surf more than paddle flat water, take a look at the Riviera Nugg 9'2 x 31" and Turbo Nugg (5 fin setup) for the same price with a more performance surf shape that still paddles flat water decently.
Durability & Weight
The two most important qualities people are looking for in a board are durability and weight. Riviera has done an excellent job bringing a price point board to market with some nice features to enhance it's durability.
The Riviera 11'6 has a Carbon Deck Patch where you stand as well as Kevlar glassed into the rails for added re-enforcement in high impact spots on the board. This prevents the deck from sinking in over time and the rails can take an absolute beating from a paddle hitting them. The boards are painted in a high grade automotive paint so it will chip, scratch & ding if dropped or hit on something, we recommend rail tape to prevent that from happening.
