April Zilg talks about her custom 12’6″ Hobie Apex Raw race stand up paddle board shaped by Mark Johnson.
When to order a custom board:
- When you know exactly what you want to change on a production board
- When the conditions you paddle in dictate specific design features such as more or less rocker, more or less stability, ability to surf, etc.
- When you have a specific color and design in mind, such as aqua and black or whatever makes it your own.
- When you want to add or subtract volume or width based on your weight and experience.
