Paddle Board Make & Model

Hammerhead Explorer
MSRP ($):

Durability doesn’t always have to come at the cost of weight as can be seen with the YOLO Hammerhead Explorer. This paddleboard weights in at only 32 lbs yet has a rider limit of 275 lbs and features an extremely durable construction. YOLO achieved this by combining the strength of a plastic board with the lighter weight of an epoxy board in one elegant design. A thermo-mold ABS construction is used for the outer shell of this board, so you can throw almost anything at it and it will resist both scratches and dings. For the inner core, a more traditional foam / epoxy construction is used in order to keep the weight down. Added durability also comes in the form of a protective bumper that stretches all around the rail of the board. This safeguards the board against damage that could potentially be caused by your paddle or docks.

Durability isn’t all that this board has to offer either. It has a V-shaped Explorer hull, which provides it with superior tracking as well as the ability to cut through the water with ease. As with most of the boards by YOLO, this one also provides you with the stability needed to fish comfortably and is easy to paddle. In addition, this board features a Gortex air valve, finger carry handle and leash plug. Finally, it has integrated tie-downs that can be used for your gear or to secure your cooler.

The Hammerhead Explorer is more of an all-round paddleboard compared to the more dedicated fishing models, but it can still get the job done and is available at a very affordable price. Although it would have been nice to see more options for attaching fishing gear there’s no arguing with the durability of this board.
