Here at McConks we have a long and rich history across a variety of watersports. This is why you’ll find a diverse array of products in the McConks webshop covering multiple disciplines. Not just stand up paddle boarding. SUP remains our bread and butter but we also appreciate the want and need to get afloat whatever the weather.
Often Mother Nature’s not playing ball when it comes to stand up paddle boarding. At least if flat water and windless conditions are what you’re searching for. That’s when it’s time to switch things up and make use of other ‘tools’. Windsurfing has been something Family McConks has pursued in the past. And more recently wingsurfing wings have made their presence felt. We see these ‘engines’ as an extension of the paddle. If it’s breezy go wing or sail. Otherwise, stick with your SUP kit. Or…
Electric hydrofoil boards are another area we’ve been dabbling with. Introduced in early 2021 the Fly McConks eFoil landed with much anticipation. We’ve since enjoyed countless hours flying above water at our local. Whilst certainly not paddling this unique craft serves a very specific sensation. Fun and addictive foiling is a big growth area of watersports. We apreciate the battery powered nature of eFoils does bump the price up and make acquiring kit tricky. But if you get a chance to fly we know you’ll be hooked.
