THURSO SURF MAX REVIEW: ACCESSORIES

Thurso Surf Max Paddle

Like all other Thurso paddle boards, Max is also accompanied by the lightweight Carbon Shaft 3-piece paddle. The use of this paddle cuts down the pain of paddling with heavy aluminium or fibre shafts. 

Though carbon shafts weigh only 2 lbs, these shafts are extremely well designed for efficient paddling, and you can paddle for longer durations without straining your hands. The blades possess a 10° dihedral shape to get the maximum power from each stroke and to prevent blade twisting. 

Moreover, you can carry it easily in backpacks as these shafts can be opened into three separate pieces. This also paves the way for adjustable heights, to suit different needs.

The shafts now host the new locking shaft mechanism, that will allow you to convert it to a kayak paddle, be simply adding a second blade, stored separately.

Thurso Surf Max Pump

This paddle board comes along with a double-action pump. The pump is equally efficient in inflation and deflation. To make it easy for you to roll your board, the pump will suck out even the last bit of air. Both the actions are performed pretty quick.

Though the pumps are proficient in their job, yet there can be an improvement in this field, by providing triple actions pumps that many other manufacturers are able to provide at the same price. Staying updated with the latest will always lend an upper hand over other manufacturers.

Thurso Surf Max Leash

With the thurso surf multi-functional board package, you get a 10′ coiled leash. It will not hinder your movement on the board as it is long and stretchy. You can attach one end of the leash to the D-ring on the back on your board and fix the other end on your ankle.

If you fall off your board, the leash will drag back the board to you, instead of you swimming to your board. The leash instils a sense of safety and confidence that will indeed improve your paddling experience.

Thurso Surf Max Backpack

The Thurso Surf Max brings to you a sturdy, waterproof roller backpack, which forms a great companion for paddling adventures. The backpack has integrated wheels to ease your journey. The padded shoulder-strap lessens the burden on your shoulder, and for extra support, you even get a chest-strap. Since you know that Max is heavy, this backpack is an absolute boon that saves you from the stress of porting it from one place to another.

The bag zips on all three sides, making it easy to put in and take out the board. The backpack will efficiently carry all your needed accessories and extra loads, leaving you with no complaints.
