            Overview

            The Scout Sport is perfect for going cruising through flat waters that have a lot of twists and turns. It’s capable of quick turnarounds for when the path takes a sudden change in direction or when you find yourself in a precarious situation. It can also work if you decide you want to catch some little waves. It’s a great board for seeing the sites around your waters and touring the neighborhood on a sunny day.

            Scout Sport SUP ReviewPerformance

            It behaves like your standard SUP but with a little extra maneuverability. The increased rocker allows for tighter, sharper turns. This also enables it to navigate well through a fair amount of choppiness. Even with this added ability, it still has enough stability for beginners to feel comfortable on.

            Specs

            It reaches 11’4” and can hold up to 225lbs with its 202 liters of board volume. It weighs 33lbs with a hefty 6 ½” nose rocker and 3” tail rocker. It comes in three colors: blue, gray and yellow. And it comes with a displacement hull, center and side fins, 10’ coil leash, spare vent cap and board bag.

            Pros

            Great maneuverability. Works best for flat water cruising but can perform will in small waves if you decide to try surfing. Very stable and good for learning the basics.

            Cons

            Doesn’t handle the speed of surfing on bigger waves. It’s heavy.

            Conclusion

            A great board for fitting in smaller pockets and navigating through diverse seascapes with tricky corridors and narrow passageways. Good for getting out of and escaping tight situations where quick movements are essential.
