How do you make something that weighs 25lbs feel like 5lbs? Put a good handle on it. POP SUP boards feature our very own ergonomically recessed handles with ribbed finger grips for extra carrying comfort. No more finger cramping, the handle is designed to transfer the weight of the board from your finger tips to your hand and arm. We carefully position the handles on the center of our boards to give riders optimal balance, making our boards feel weightless carrying them to and from the water.
Board Construction Detail
Vacuum packed technology is used with Nature-Tech during our board construction process. Once glassed our boards are inserted into a plastic sleeve and vacuum packed to suck all the air out during the bonding process. This successfully reduces the overall weight of our SUP boards while increasing strength and durability. Using this premium construction method, riders can expect a POP board to weigh between 20-30lbs depending on the model selected.
O3 SCIENCE TEAM

Using three heads instead of one ensures a final product that caters to a variety of different SUP backgrounds, riders, and riding styles. The O3 science is why POP boards are among the most well-rounded SUP boards in the industry.
