    Description

    This board is for those people who like to do their own thing, who like to create their own stories rather than being part of someone else’s. Who seek out their own hidden beaches and coves, to get close to nature, to escape. Who want to paddlesurf, and who want to take kids or pets with them.

    And if you and your passengers and kit weigh less than 120kg, then this is the board for you.

    McConks are paddlers too, and we’ve designed the perfect all-round board based on our experience! But we didn’t just use our experience. We’ve also spoken to lots of paddlers to really understand what makes a perfect allround iSUP and used this to set new standards for our touring iSUP boards.

    We’ve redefined lightweight touring inflatable paddle boards with the absolute best dropstitch available – German tech woven drop stitch (1). This uses the latest fusion polymer technology to reduce the weight of the paddleboard compared to competitors, but still provide a solid rigid platform for comfortable long distance paddling. To put this into perspective, this board packs a massive 220l volume, so will happily carry a load of 120kg, and yet weighs less than 10kg. For beginners we recommend a maximum regular weight of 100kg (14.1 stone). But if you know what you’re doing, then load it all the way up to 170kg!

    Front storage and lashing points on the paddleboard allow you to take all you need for a day trip, or allow you to attach a SUP seat up front for younger passengers.

    The shape has been developed and refined to give optimum all round use:

    •   The sleek tapered lines on the rail give excellent glide, tracking and speed when standing in the neutral position and paddling in a straight line
    •   The pintail shape gives better performance in surf than round or square tailed inflatable SUP boards
    •   The 2 1 FCS in set up allows you to adjust the bite and control of your inflatable SUP to your environment.  Real fins are a game changer for iSUP performance.  Better tracking, better glide and better performance in waves.  It amazes us that anyone still uses fixed rubber fins when the alternative is so much better!

    The click fit side bite fin boxes use the Fugawa system, which allows you to use both the click fit fittings of the supplied fins, or standard FCS fins.

    (1) Don’t believe those who say that all inflatable SUP are the same, or that every manufacturer uses the same materials.  There are vast differences in the quality of materials, and in the quality assurance of those boards.   Our boards are on the production table for over 72 hours,  and then  they’re pressure tested for another 72 hours.  If you’re buying a board that costs less than ours, then either the production time is quicker, the materials are worse quality, or the quality assurance is worse.  Or in the worse case, all three!

    We’ve extended the deckpad to cover much more of the deck, and more than most boards on the market.  Why?  This makes it more comfortable for kids up front, or for yoga, and also keeps kit more secure under the shockcord.  And talking of the shockcord, we’ve added a new mechanism that makes it easy to release the shockcord to secure your gear, or attach our new integrated deckbag.

    We’ve also integrated additional marine grade stainless steel D rings around the standing position.  These lie flat in the deckpad so don’t get in the way if you’re not using,  but allow a SUP seat to be attached if you so want (personally, we think they’re bad for you back, and highly inefficient, but we’ve been told off by customers this year who love them!  We WILL NOT be making our paddles double bladed though – that is seriously bad for your back and shoulders.  The blades are too big and the wrong shape to be used as a kayak paddle, and you will end up with rotator cuff and lower back injuries. An additional cheap split kayak paddle is a much better option all round)

    And we’ve updated the design a bit.  We like to keep our design constant for as long as possible – we don’t want to be part of the unsustainable annual upgrade cycle – but we’ve had the previous design since 2016, and it was a little tired!

    We include a Panda Board Sports Quick Release waist belt as standard with every SUP package at no additional cost – we care about your safety!

    What else might you need?

    Inflation aids

    Connect to a compressor | Valve adaptor

    This little tool allows you to connect your inflatable paddleboard to a shrader (car tyre) type pump.  Please note that most car tyre pumps are not designed to provide enough volume to inflate a SUP.  Therefore using your car tyre inflator could damage the pump.  And the use of a very high volume compressor could damage your SUP board – so be careful!

    Inflating with ease | Double action or Triple action pump

    Choose a double action pump which does the job in about 8 minutes.   But it’s a back breaking workout. So why not upgrade to a double chamber triple action pump.  This pump makes your pre-paddle routine a doddle, inflating an all round board to 18 PSI in less than 5 minutes, without breaking your back. 

    You’re not what you wear, but…

    Looking good without costing the planet | Casual SUPwear

    We’ve got a large range of organic and sustainable t-shirts and hoodies.  From bright and colourful to stylish and subtle, every garment is 100% organic or recycled, printed to order using a small UK company, and delivered within 10 days, but often as quick as 3 days.  Kids, ladies and unisex available

    Protect the seas and your body | Rash vests

    Not just a rash vest, but one made from recycled plastic waste.  Here’s what a happy customer had to say…

    “It is very comfy. Easily the comfiest one I’ve had. Better than my current Billabong one. I wasn’t expecting it to be long sleeved. If I’d have been looking to buy another one, I’d have gone for short sleeve. But now I’ve tried your long sleeve one on, I’m sold on it. In the hot weather this saturday at the Torbay air show, it was lovely and cooling on and stopped me getting burned when wearing it on its own with shorts. When I went for a swim, I put my wetsuit top on over the top of it and it kept me nice and warm. When I took the wetsuit top off, your rash vest dried pretty quickly in the sun.”

    Fins

    No snags | river fin

    Shallow rivers are a drag (literally), particularly for those riders with fixed fins.  Luckily, McConks don’t do fixed fins, and a river fin pack allows you to use shorter fins for shallower waters. 

    Harder, straighter, faster | Race fins

    If you want better tracking, then these race fins will improve your tracking and your speed through the water. With a weed shedding profile they will also significantly reduce drag in weedy waters.

    Have fun, be safe | SUP safety

    SUP leashes

    It goes without saying you should nearly always use a leash. If you’re on flat without any current, then a coiled ankle leash is sufficient (supplied as standard on most of our boards prior to 2021). If you want to surf SUP, then a straight leash is advised to reduce the risk of recoil, although people are increasingly finding coiled ankle leashes don’t create as much recoil as previously feared.

    For 2021, we are no longer providing ankle leashes as standard.  We’re instead providing quick release waist belts and a leash connect system. 

    Whitewater specific quick release belts

    If you stand up paddle on swiftwater, then we recommend a more fully featured quick release belt, with multiple release mechanisms. Check out our quick release belts here.

    Eye protection

    When you’re paddling you need shades that protect your eyes against reflected blue light, and that are polarised. Most eyewear manufacturers neglect the blue wavelength protection as it is not specified in international standards.  All of our eyewear gives additional blue spectrum protection,  our mirror blue lenses provide the greatest protection for paddling.   With frames hand made from sustainable materials, and made to float, our shades protect your wallet, the environment, and your eyes.

    Gear protection

    Keeping you gear safe on the water is an important element of SUP safety.  What good is your mobile phone if it’s at the bottom of the sea?  Our dry bags keep your gear dry, and have inflatable external bladders to ensure they float. And they’re made from recycled plastic waste

    10 reviews for McConks Go Anywhere 10’6 inflatable SUP | The all round SUP

    1. Nick Beecroft (verified owner)

      After many hours of searching and hiring various makes of boards we settled on two 10’6 McConks GoAnywhere boards. We even hired a McConks to test before we purchased. Firstly Andy and the service are second to none and the board, paddle and all the bits are outstanding. In the weeks since we took delivery we’ve been on the sea at Abersoch, flat and rough water, Bala lake and soon off to Barmouth. The whole expereince from the bags, pumping (keeping me fit) and riding the boards has been excellent. The kids are growing in confidence and teaching their old man techniques and style. Brilliant product and a company that deserves to do well. Only problem is my 4 year old wants his own board now!

    2. actionflack

      One of the best boards I’ve used. There’s a nice teardrop shape and great features. It’s clearly been well thought out in the design stages. The bag provided is one of the best I’ve seen – plenty of storge space and ventilation – which I think is often overlooked with sup packages.
      The boats inflates nicely, tracks well on the water and having the choice of different sized fins (optional extras) really opens up different areas of exploration. As all
      3 fins are removable it makes transporting several boards on a roof rack etc really easy as they all stack together.
      Highly (and regularly) recommended as an all rounder board…

    3. Steve H. (verified owner)

      I’m not overly experienced at paddle boarding yet but I have been bitten by the bug.
      Having hired a RED PADDLE board early in the summer I decided I had to have a board of my own. I bought a couple of cheap boards off an internet auction site and as the whole family were enjoying using them, when I came into a bit of money recently I decided to treat myself to a more quality board.
      Whilst doing research the name McConks kept popping up for build quality, design and performance.
      I decided to go for the Go Anywhere 10’6 and I’m delighted that I did.
      The actual board seems well made and the pump, bag and paddle are quality products.
      I’ve only owned the board a couple of weeks, have used it twice, it’s easy to pump up to 18psi with the pump supplied, I’ve not felt the need to go beyond that yet, it’s very stable on the water even in the windy and choppy autumn sea conditions I’ve used it in, it tracks well and I easily got some speed up.
      To be honest the board is far more capable than I am as a paddler. Fingers crossed my ability will improve to push the board nearer it’s boundaries.
      I have no hesitation in highly recommending this board and company.

        Steve – thanks for your comment. We have no doubt that you’re better than you think you are! If you can manage the choppy autumn sea, then you’re up there in the top 20%!

      After much research I found McConks on line and between Andy and Bob of EightZeroEight Sup,(demo centre at Manvers Waterfront Boat Club in South Yorkshire), I chose the McConks 10’6 Go Anywhere. I wanted an all round iSUP for lake and calmer sea paddling. I had been windsurfing for many years and I liked the feel of the 10’6. Not the iSUP for the heavier novice (I’m around 76kg/12stones) so talk to Andy he will give you plenty of advice also take a demo if you can.

      I’m now out on my 10’6 twice a week and have taken it to the south coast (Swanage/Studland) on a weeks holiday, I’m pretty sure I have covered the costs of the iSUP in savings on hire charges alone!

      The service and enthusiasm from Andy and the team was great, delivery was quick and the iSUP quality looks second to none.

    6. Leah (verified owner)

      Great board, practically indestructible and incredibly stable for new paddlers.

    7. Tim Lawes (verified owner)

      Very versatile board – light and easy to manoeuvre – very high quality materials.

    8. Rick (verified owner)

      I have had my board over a year now, and it’s been pretty faultless.
      I found it forgiving in the sea, and though it took a few outings to get used to paddling in surf (my main interest), I found it very agile for its size on the waves and took it out in head-height surf in Spain without too much drama. ‘go anywhere’ is a good name for it!

    9. Barry Edwards (verified owner)

      I purchased this board after trying both a Red and a Jobe. A couple of people then suggested McConks and after reading the reviews I decided to go for the 10ft 6 as my first board. So far I have used it on the sea in Cornwall and Weymouth, at times in some pretty strong winds and chop and it has been great, feels a bit tippy sometimes, however that is probably more down to my inexperience rather than the board as out of the wind in mild chop I have no problem at all staying upright. Build quality is excellent and it inflated to 18psi in 10-15 minutes with the upgrade pump. I have a 7 inch fin so maybe with a 9 inch it will be better in the sea ?. My wife also uses it, but prefers calmer sea and minimal wind. It appears to track really well in all conditions I have used it in and when kneeling I can really get some speed up. The bag it comes with is excellent quality and everything fits in, even the 2 piece paddle. Unpacking it to inflate is easier than packing it up after. It is a shame that you have to keep your thumb on the valve to deflate it (unless I am doing something wrong). I am now thinking of upgrading to the 12ft 6 for a quicker ride and maybe the kayak seat. Great board though

    10. Neil C (verified owner)

      I’m fairly new to paddleboarding and the GoAnywhere 10’6” is my first board. I did a fair bit of research on-line, and was able to hire boards from Red and McConks a few times to try before I clicked ‘buy’. Everything pointed towards the quality of the McConks board being comfortably up there with the best, despite their prices being slightly below some of the other premium brands.

      In addition, McConks are fairly local to me and they’re a smaller family-run company, and I wanted to support them rather than a big multinational brand. McConks don’t go in for glossy expensive marketing full of skimpy bikinis and tropical beaches, they are just a nice bunch of enthusiasts whose knowledge, integrity and passion for the sport comes across in what they do.

      I’ve now had the the GoAnywhere a few weeks, and it has been faultless on the rivers and canals I’ve paddled. I’ve done a couple of longer (for me) 3-4 hour trips, and it’s remained comfortable and relaxed. It’s stable and tracks well, which I appreciate as a newbie, but it is nimble and turns well when I fancy a bit of a play. I’m working on my step-back turns – the shape of the board is perfect, but my skills are not!

      The various fixtures and fittings (handles, D-rings etc) are quality items and well specified for the board’s intended use. The fins included with the board are fairly generously sized, so I bought a set of river fins for the shallower rivers I sometimes venture down (the fact that it comes with quality US/FCS fin boxes and removable fins is a real plus point of this board, and for me elevate it above a couple of its rivals).

      All the accessories and safety gear that come with the board are robust and top quality too – absolutely no corners cut here either. The attention to detail is first class, and really gives you the sense that it’s been designed by someone who uses this stuff day in day out. The bag is brilliant (and big!) and makes the packing and transportation of the board and other kit so much less hassle. I bought the triple action pump, which makes inflation to the recommended pressure relatively quick and easy (though still a good cardio warm-up!).

      I’m very happy I went with McConks. This board is very robust and versatile and will last me a good long time. One day I’ll probably move to a more touring specific board, and will happily give McConks my repeat custom.
