Now, let's talk about the Flyweight. This board is all about lightweight performance and versatility. Using innovative air-light drop stitch technology, they have managed to make the Flyweight 30% lighter than traditional boards, weighing in at under 20 pounds. This makes it incredibly easy to handle and transport. The pliable material allows it to roll up compactly, fitting snugly into its backpack for hassle-free travel. Whether you're hiking into a remote lake or packing it for a flight, the Flyweight ensures you stay under the weight limit while still enjoying top-tier paddleboarding performance.

Each package includes a three-piece paddle, a hand pump for quick inflation, a backpack for convenient carrying, a board bag for protection, an ankle leash for safety, fins for stability, and a repair kit for peace of mind.
