Most paddleboards are heavy and quite sizable, typically measuring 9.5 to 12.5 feet in length, which makes them difficult to transport and store. Now, Corran Addison Paddleboards are here to change all of that with their newly designed three-piece board that packs into a roller case for easy transport and storage.
Introducing The Hydra, Addison’s newest innovation. Fully put-together, the board measures 9 feet long, but it breaks down into three 36-inch pieces that are placed in a wheeled carry bag. At that size, you’re even able to bring it on a plane with you–although I can’t imagine a scenario in which that would be necessary. This isn’t the first 3-piece paddleboard, though, as Point65 and Origami also have their own. But, what sets the Hydra apart from the others is that it is made from Polypropylene and not polyethlene, making it significantly cheaper with a price tag set at $699. Compared to prices that typically run above $1,000, it’s safe to say that Hydra is the least expensive option. [Purchase]
