Akaroa 9'6 - kids and small adults board
At Sea Lion we paddle with the whole family, kids included. We’ve designed the perfect inflatable SUP for kids and small adults to get out on the water and learn to paddle. Whether it’s their first time on the lake, they’re joining you on the river or hitting the surf this board does it all and is designed to last well into their teens.
Shorter and narrower than the Rapoka, the Akaroa shares similar lines, tie-downs, kickpad and rocker that excel in any condition and is made with the same Eco details as the rest of the Sea Lion iSUP range. This offers stability, durability, maneuverability and the same Sea Lion experience for the next generation of paddlers. Welcome to the Tribe kids!
Akaroa is a village on the eastern coast of New Zealand where on the rim and deposits of an extinct volcano you can see a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals, a family member of the Penipeds and close sibling to the New Zealand Sea Lion
1% of every sale of this paddleboard will go to the Marine Conservation Society, a UK charity working for seas full of life. Every £1 donated could help protect 5m2 of endangered seagrass. www.mcsuk.org
The Akaroa could help protect 37.5m2 of endangered seagrass. Although seagrasses only cover 0.1% of the ocean, they sequester 10% of the total carbon in the ocean - an incredibly efficient store of organic carbon. Coastal seagrass beds store up to 83,000 metric tons of carbon per square kilometre – that’s over double a typical terrestrial forest!
