Love my new Soft Top especially the grippy soft top!


Cruiser Soft Top DURASOFT 11'6" SUP with paddle

The Cruiser Soft Top SUP is everything and more than I expected. The SUP was delivered on time and in perfect condition. Paddleboard Direct was a professional company to work with on my order.


Feather light

I bought this out of season and saved a lot of money doing so. I won't get to try out my board for several months, but I'm pleased with the light weight. I also like the aluminum paddle that came with it. Paddleboard Direct kept in contact with me until my board arrived, excellent service.

Perfect SUP for Beginner I got boards that were recommended for people taller than we are, as a friend of mine told me that would make them more steady. I don't know if that's published but perhaps it's something to consider if you're a beginner.

I bought two of these to use on a lake. I'd only been out paddle boarding a couple times before, and the other person I bought this board for had never been paddle boarding. We were pleasantly surprised at how stable the seam and how easy they are to maneuver. Feeling quite bold after a few times out, I even went out with my dog riding on the front of the board!

Excellent Beginner Board

First off, Norah was super helpful in assisting me in choosing the right board over the phone. (Mine is the 10' 4".) I started off paddling on a local lake back in May. The board is very stable on water and not too heavy to carry or load up. (in fact I recently rented a different cheapie board on vacation which felt like 100 pounds. Happy to return it and get back to mine!) Moving along, I've really fell in love with paddle surfing, so I've brought my Soft Top to the ocean a few times. Very easy to paddle into waves and a stable ride once you're moving. So overall, I would recommend this as a "gateway" board, but I probably envision upgrading to a higher quality board in the near future. Also, be careful when transporting...I put some serious dents & dings in the foam underside by cranking down the straps to tight. That's more on me just being careless. But the board isn't indestructible, just sayin'. Super fun!!!!!

Paddleboard Direct

Hi Scott Thanks for your feedback. The Soft Top range is the lowest priced rigid board that we offer. They provide customers with excellent value, as nothing else on the market comes close to the quality at $699 price range with free paddle, shipping and no sales tax. The fiberglass Soft Top are lower priced versions of our best selling Blend and Betty Feather-Lite Wood/Fiberglass boards, (with Dura-Soft Full wrap deck pads and bumpers). The Soft Top are promoted as recreational, and family boards. If customers want higher performance, they should consider the Betty/Blend, Wahine/Kona Ultra-Lite Bamboo or Wood boards. If customers want the most durable board, they should consider the ECO Dura-Maxx boards, as they have ABS/poly-carbonate shell, yet weigh 28 pounds. Don't understand you comment about the bottom of the board, as it has two layers of fiberglass and is not foam underside. Please send pictures of the board, rack straps and more info to so that we can assess. Happy paddling!
