Description

The Key West Kraken is a true family SUP. It is ideal for both flat water and wave paddling. Its shape guarantees performance, speed and manoeuvrability. Whether it is used as a play platform for children or as a multi-rider SUP, the Key West Kraken will give you loads of fun. The more the merrier! Although this board can be ridden by a single rider, it's always a pleasure to share the fun and that's the reason why Key West designed the Kraken which can support two adults. At 12'9" in length, the Kraken offers excellent glide and is perfect for long distances. Besides, the tail prevents the board from slipping sideways. Extremely stable thanks to its 35" in width, the board is perfect for beginners or for children. The more experienced paddlers will also enjoy the responsiveness of this SUP. The 3 fins will allow you to ride in all types of conditions. Key West paddle boards stand out due to the great level of performance they offer but also for their stunning look.

Construction of a Key West Board

Inflatable paddle boards don’t have a rigid shell. The deck and bottom of the board are joined together by a weaving of thousands of tiny polyester threads. This technology is called Dropstitch. The outside layer is made of reinforced coated PVC. An additional PVC layer called a stringer adds extra stiffness to the board.
Drop stitch is an amazing material used to build SUP boards, but it has also been used to make floating platforms and even airplane wings! Drop stitch allows to build inflatable SUPs that can be blown up to high pressure, up to 15 psi. This means you get hard board performance along with ease of transport and storage of an inflatable SUP.

Valve

Key West chose to equip their boards with next-gen valves. Say goodbye to the old ULI valve. Let us now introduce the push push valve ! How does it work?

1 – Unscrew the valve cap
2 – Push the button and turn it clockwise so that it is in Pin Out position.
3 – Connect the pump hose to the valve inflate outlet.
4 – Inflate until you reach the desired pressure.

The Kraken should be blown up to 12 tot 15 psi. Key West valves are really convenient and easy to use.

Stiff and manoeuvrable

Just like any Key West board, the Stellar is extra stable, which is great if you're starting out in stand up paddling. Plus, the two PVC layers and the 15 cm thickness provide a lot of rigidity and responsiveness for the more experienced riders.

Fins



The Key West Kraken features 3 fins : 2 built-in side fins and one removable centre fin. The side fins are very rugged. In case they bend out of shape while in the transport bag, simply pour hot water on them or use a hair-dryer and reshape them by hand.
The centre fin is 10" long and has to be inserted in the box rail and then locked into place with the locking pin.

Footpad



The pad of a paddle board is important when it comes to stability and manoeuvrability! The anti-slip pad will help you improve your balance and the crocodile-like skin structure is very soft and comfortable.

What you have to keep in mind

The length of a SUP board has an impact on its gliding/speed performance and on the turns. The longer the board, the faster it goes but also the more difficult it is to turn. A wider board will be more stable but slower and more difficult to turn. At 12 ft 9" in length, 35" in width and 6" in thickness, the Key West Kraken is very supportive and stable, the perfect SUP for two riders.
