Monarch board, great for family trip
We have absolutely loved our Monarch board. We ordered it close to our first multiday trip of the season and it came super quick. We had kids and dogs and some very happy adults playing on it the whole trip.
Awesome paddle board for a host of adventures!
My wife and I have both have enjoyed paddle sports in the past, but our first love is climbing. Recently we moved to Las Vegas which has endless rock climbing opportunities, but in the summer it's HOT. With Lake Mead and the Colorado River in our backyard we took the plunge and purchased two Monarchs. As first time paddleboarders we could be happier with our decision. As an all rounder, the Monarch has been a great board for learning the subtleties of balance and correct paddling form. We have ventured out in choppy conditions, "surfed" some passing power boat wakes and even loaded up the boards with overnight gear and camped out along Lake Mead. We both can't wait for more adventures with these awesome paddle boards! Here is a link to our overnight camping trip https://youtu.be/jrytE81QDW0
Customer service is excellent and the SUP work great
1 Year Review
I’m 1 year in on my Monarch board. I love this thing. I’ve been to most spots on the front range with no issues, nothing but joy. I took it down a section of the Arkansas River going into Salida. I had an unbelievable time. So much so I just grabbed an IRS for this upcoming season. My only complaint about the package is the blade of the paddle starting moving around eventually and was unstable. But overall I’m very happy with my purchase.
Rugged High Performance SUP
I'm the General Manager of Bent River Outfitter in Mankato Minnesota and we use badfish SUP's in our rental fleet as well as sell them in store. The rivers here fluctuate water levels and have hazards such as rocks and dead trees. We have had zero issues with guests running into objects that normally would put holes in over brand paddle boards. Our guides all prefer to float on badfish sups based on their maneuverability as well as trusting the SUP's won't pop 2 hours into a 4 hour float. With durable construction, top notch customer service and reasonable pricing I'm sold for life on badfish. The folks there are friendly and helpful with any questions I have and the order fulfillment is prompt. If you are looking to purchase your first or your fourth paddle board you can't go wrong with badfish!!
