Whaleback Tortuga

By Matt Nix, Executive Producer and Host of Racin’ Nation Radio:

“When I’m not in the studio or at the race track, I’m fishing. I recently started SUP fishing, and the 12’6” Tortuga by Whaleback Paddleboards is a real game changer. At 12’6” x 34” x 10.5”, with twin pontoons, the stability is ridiculous. I can walk nose to tail and all around the rails to reel in fish from any direction. Its 3-inch side-bite tracking fins allow me to squeeze into shallow flats, and its maneuverability and stability is great offshore as well. With a full-coverage, water-resistant traction pad, the deck space is unmatched. And it’s 28 customizable inserts and deck tie-downs let me rig up my YakAttack lean post, rod holders, GPS, and paddle holder and still have room for the cooler, cup holder and lawn chair. Because let’s face it, nothing’s better than celebrating a good catch with a cold one.”

Whether you’re an experienced SUP fisherman or just getting started, the 12’6 Tortuga is the board for you. It sets you up with everything you need. You just have to find the fish.
