At POP, they're always striving to enhance the quality of their products. The latest line of paddle boards now features our wildly durable Nature-Tech Construction. Less fiber glass and the addition of a bamboo veneer has resulted in a tightly bonded, air tight SUP board that performs better than its predecessors. The use of bamboo, one of the strongest and lightest woods, also makes their paddleboards 10% stronger and 10% lighter, a difference that every rider can appreciate.
Every SUP board crafted by POP is hand-finished; ensuring each board they shape receives a great deal of attention and soul. Their hand laid glassing fortifies the bonding between each layer, resulting in an evenly structured and lightweight paddle-board. Once dry, each board is hand-painted with their signature color-blocked designs and polished by hand for a sleek and glossy finish. Using these handmade techniques consistently enhances the build quality and integrity of our paddleboards.
The Vice Construction uses compression mold technology. Layers of bamboo, fiberglass, and kelvar compressed together bonded with an epoxy resin make for an ultralight durable board.

POP Paddleboards’ 360° diamond traction connects riders to their paddleboards with an ultra-tacky grip that’s firm and forgiving.

Whether you are circling the buoys around the harbor or dropping in on an overhead wave, our trademark pad will allow you to seamlessly pull off the most critical maneuvers. There’s no blaming your next wipeout on traction-pad-slippage with POP’s diamond 360° traction pad.
Futures Fin System
The 9’6 Saltwater Beaver used Futures Quad (4+1) fin setup. Quad setups are specifically used for SUP surfing and allow you to adjust your fins to dial in speed, thrust, and maneuverability for your local break. Futures is based in Huntington Beach, California, and offers a wide variety of adjustable and removable fin systems used by world champions to make quick adjustments while on the go. You can spend less time tuning your board and more time paddle surfing the 9’6 your way.
Gortex PlugPOP uses a one-way military grade vent plug to release heat pressure buildup from the inside of our boards, without letting water in. The materials used in making most paddleboards can expand when exposed to high heat for extended periods of time. This can cause internal warping of the foam core and fiberglass, causing delaminating between the bonding layers of the board. For best results loosen the vent plug when racking your board on a hot day or setting it dockside under the hot sun.
How do you make something that weighs 25lbs feel like 5lbs? Put a good handle on it. POP SUP boards feature our very own ergonomically recessed handles with ribbed finger grips for extra carrying comfort. No more finger cramping, the handle is designed to transfer the weight of the board from your fingertips to your hand and arm. We carefully position the handles on the center of our boards to give riders optimal balance, making our boards feel weightless carrying them to and from the water.
