ar·ma·da: a fleet of warships. As the name implies, this board is built tough. Constructed using Blu Wave’s all new ABS Thermo-Tech Construction, the Armada is a perfect all round board for someone looking for a rugged, durable SUP that won’t break the bank…or your back carrying it. Our revolutionary thermo-tech construction combines traditional EPS composite board construction, with a thermo-molded outer skin of ultra tough ABS plastic to produce a lightweight durable SUP with a seamless fibreglass rail unlike any plastic board on the market. For an entry level board, the Armada 10.8, with it’s pulled in nose and thinner rails than the Armada 10.6, scores high on paddling performance and wave riding. Great first board for the family or for someone looking for a very durable board that has the versatility and performance to excel in a variety of applications and conditions from surf to flat water.
Shapers Notes: Slightly pointed nose and progressive rocker reduces drag when paddling in chop and waves. Wide standing area and full rails provide ample volume for a variety of rider abilities and sizes. Suited to beginners up to 200 lbs / advanced up to 230 lbs.
Features: Built in Go Pro mount, bungee tie downs Fin Setup: 9″ Tooless center with 4.5″ side thrusters
