Stand-up paddleboarding has begun to gain popularity in the world of water sports thanks to its combination of fitness and excitement, and the new Body Glove Crusader is a paddleboard that turns the sport into a communal experience as well. While the average stand-up paddleboard can host one or two riders, the Crusader is designed to hold as many as six.
The Body Glove Crusader comes in at 15 feet in length and 66 inches in width. This allows it to support up to 1,000 pounds, with the board itself weighing 76 pounds. That might sound heavy, but Body Glove has designed the Crusader to be significantly lighter than the average high-capacity stand-up paddleboard.
The board is ideal for families who want to go out on the water together and play, or for friends who want to use it for more aggressive surfing as a unit.
