We were headed out on a family vacation in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the week and I wanted to bring a paddle board from the shop. My first go-to choice was the Bic ACE-Tec 11’6″, however Bree turned me down since our entire SUP rental fleet was booked for the week. Well, that left the Imagine Surfer or one of the many wood laminated JP Australia boards that everyone is hot for since they are lightweight and faster on the water. I, however, knew I would be having the family and others riding the board and opted for the plastic Imagine Surfer. At only 9’9″ in length, I was a little concerned that my heavy 260lb build would sink the board, but I gambled and threw it on the car.

After a 12 hour car ride that would normally take 6 if you don’t have a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old when traveling, needless to say I was all up for unpacking and a beer or two when I got to Drummond Island and the family cottage. If you are familiar with Drummond Island, you know that the shoreline is all very rocky, something I wasn’t expecting, and I knew right away that the plastic construction of the Imagine Surfer was the right call! Paddling was going to have to wait until the following day.
