Description

Designed by experienced paddlers for beginners and experts alike.

This board is the culmination of many hours prototyping, tweaking and designing plus lots of testing by the very best UK whitewater paddlers (kayak, canoe and SUP) and lots of riding by total beginner white water SUPers to see how the board performs across multiple stand up paddle board scenarios.

It is very much designed as a beginner’s whitewater board – a super stable platform that allow you to develop your core underpinning whitewater skills, but also allows a bit of fun as you start to develop. And yet, it also works away from the river, as you can see in the pic below.

What we’ve ended up with is a knife-edge compromise between a board that paddles in a straight line to the run, is a very stable board for total whitewater SUP beginners, holds its line in ferry glides, eddies in and out easily, and yet is loose in river waves. Whilst being plenty applicable for anyone paddling at the coast or on non-moving water.

If that doesn’t sound possible, this is how:

Whitewater SUP key features

  • 9’8 x 36″ x 6″ inch board –  stable width and volume, optimised length
  • 6″ nose rocker – to avoid the nose pearling (submersing)
  • 2″ tail rocker to run out of those features
  • 4+1 fins.  Run as twin, quad, 2+1 9thruster), 4+1 or single fin
  • Deckpad with rear stomp-pad to keep traction and feet planted
  • 30PSI pressure guarantee.  This board will not leak or fail.  Whether it be the River Nile, the Zambesi or the River Usk it will last you forever.
  • Shaped rails on the rear section of the rails.
  • The Go Wild only weighs 11kg with fins

Like all McConks packages the board comes with our premium wheeled rucksack that has integral paddle storage, a repair kit and a dual function SUP pump. There’s also a GoPro screw mount on the nose of the board so you can securely record your adventures and exploits without fear of losing your action camera.

Note: This board DOES NOT come with a leash. McConks do not manufacture leashes that are appropriate for whitewater. Experts concur that one should not use a leash at all in whitewater for safety reasons.

You might want to consider purchasing one of the HF waist leashes designed for whitewater.

1 review for McConks Go Wild 9’8 | beginner whitewater SUP board

  1. Connor McKeown (verified owner)

    Board is fantastic, when inflated is rock solid. The design of the fins is fantastic not only for long deep water paddling but also for shallow water. Would highly recommend this board for anyone looking for a large stable board for either flat water or moving water.
