Derived from our striking race ready 12’8 board, the Stinger has been re-profiled with a stretched and widened hull shape that adds a whole new factor of ruggedness and stability, turning this board into a tough cruiser and adaptable all round platform for exploring new routes.
A blend of displacement bow shaping and mellow rocker allows fast progress through calm or choppy waters. The 32 inch width allied to a smooth tapering, kickpad equipped tail make manoeuvring this SUP deceptively easy. Its inherent stability will have you confidently moving around the board and tackling strong flows and rolling seas with ease.
A versatile setup with capacious, adjustable front and rear stowage and configurable fins mean this board will serve you well on both overnight camping trips and ad-hoc day paddling.
Built to be capable in all waters, from flat to white, and to excite the widest range of paddlers from beginner to seasoned explorer, this SUP is ready to expand your paddling horizons with maximum fun factor.

What comes in the kit?
We know that getting out on the water is all about the thrill of adventure, and we want to make sure you're equipped with everything you need to make a splash! That's why every package comes complete with all the essentials - from the board or kayak itself, to the pump, paddle, fin(s), and a handy carry bag to take it all on the go.
To ensure maximum safety and comfort, we also recommend investing in additional gear and clothing that's tailored to your unique needs and preferences. Whether it's a buoyancy aid, personal flotation device, or specialized clothing for your activity of choice, we've got you covered.
And the best part? Our selection of safety equipment and clothing is just as exciting as our boards and kayaks themselves! So why wait? Dive into the ultimate paddling adventure with Aquaplanet, and experience the rush of the open water like never before.
What safety equipment do I need?
At Aquaplanet, your safety is our top priority, and we're here to equip you with everything you need for a worry-free paddling experience! Every kit comes with an ankle leash to keep you safely tethered to your board if you happen to take an unexpected dip.
But that's just the beginning - we want you to feel confident and prepared for any conditions you may encounter on the water. For faster or obstacle-filled waters, we highly recommend our Quick Release Waist belt, which provides an extra level of security and peace of mind. And to ensure maximum safety and comfort, we also suggest using a Buoyancy Aid or Personal Flotation Device that's tailored to your swimming ability.

How do I set up my board?
We don't just provide a user guide in the box with all our kits, we go above and beyond to ensure your experience is seamless! Check out our comprehensive guide here or dive right into your paddleboarding adventure with these easy steps:
Unpack and unroll your brand-new board, and inflate it to perfection using our handy instructions. The gauge may take a few minutes to register, so keep pumping with the dial set to '2' or dual action until it reaches 15-17 PSI (for our leisure range).
Once inflated, attach the fin and set up your paddle to the perfect height using the easy-to-use mid-section lever.
With your gear ready and safety checks complete, it's time to hit the water and experience the beauty of your new purchase firsthand!
