You mentioned that the red 13 2 explorer was a better paddling isup than the 12 6. Did you find the difference substantial? In other words, if the 2016 12 6 explorer met other requirements better, would you still pick the 13 2 because the performance gap was so great. Thank you.

Greetings, I read Reuben’s comment with great interest as I am stuck between buying a 12’6″ and 13’2″ I am a newer paddler but I want something that moves, is stable and can be used to tour. I am 5’8″ but have gained over the years- 220 lbs; however, my concern is over stability in touring. I would be going around saltwater bays in Florida and some lakes, etc. I am not sure how to compare the difference between 32″ and 30″ and stability. Is there a huge difference stability-wise?

Thanks Reuben. I’ve been reading about the boards quite a bit and have another question related to my first post. What about the 12’6″ Sport compared to the 13’2″ Explorer? I am concerned about stability but about speed too. You mention that the glide and speed of the 132 X to the 126 X was quite noticeable. Would you say that the 126 Sport was more stable and as speedy or almost as fast as the 132 X gliding? The 12’6″ sport seems to be in the middle of the two Explorer boards in design.

Hi Reuben,
I have the exact same question as Rod’s. What would be the differences between the sport 12’6″ and the explorer 13’2″? Reading the specs, one would say both boards are rather the same but I heard that the 12’6″ is a more all-around board and actually is a little faster and more stable.

Hi Reuben
Do you think explorer 13´2 is fishible? to stand and fishing ? I´m use to be on a paddleboard (Dragonfly sup and a Badfisher wich is made for fishing) but I want the explorer for longer trips but want to bring fishing gear.

How does this board perform in windy conditions and choppy water?
