Description

The Key West Pulsar is a true touring SUP. Ideal for lightweight to larger paddlers, this board glides very well on the water and is fast yet stable. At 11'6" in length, the Pulsar offers excellent glide and is perfect for paddling long distances on flat water. Besides, the tail prevents the board from slipping sideways. A stable ride thanks to its 30" in width, this SUP is perfect for riders with little or no experience, and the most experienced paddlers will love the speed and responsiveness of the Pulsar. The single fin is designed to provide great tracking and will allow you to gain speed effortlessly. 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 Key West Pulsar SUP should be blown up to 12 to 15 psi. Key West valves are really convenient and easy to use.

Stiff and manoeuvrable

Just like any Key West board, the Pulsar offers good stability but it 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.

Fin

Just like most touring paddle boards, the Key West Pulsar has a single 10" removable fin which needs to be inserted in the box rail and then locked into place with the locking pin.

The single fin provides great tracking, meaning that the board will hold its line with minimum drag. The location of the fin box was designed to offer the best tracking/manoeuvrability ratio.

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.

Kick pad

In addition to the foot pad, the new Key West SUP boards feature a kick pad which offers increased manoeuvrability and make sharp turns in the waves or turn more easily and with more precision in flatwater. To make a kick turn, step back and place your back foot on the kick pad. Most of your weight will be located on the tail of the SUP which will make the nose tilt upward. With a bit of practice it's quite easy to master this surfing tip which can come in very handy when you need to make precision turns or when the sea gets choppy.

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 30" in width and 11'6" in length, the Key West Pulsar strikes the right balance between manoeuvrability and speed.
