The Chevron’s soft top makes it a good choice for newbies. You’ll also find this board in rental fleets and yoga classes because it’s designed for educational needs and stability.

Since this board is commonly used on lakes and other flat water environments, the durability factor is important because many times you’ll be launching from a dock or other platform.
Whether you’re using the dock or platform for added stability when getting on your SUP or to tie up temporarily, the board will likely bump and rub up against the float. That’s why you need the hard rails, and the Rave has you covered here.
Getting back to the main feature – its soft top and stability – this is why yoga enthusiasts and novices love this board. It acts a platform for many activities and is great for classes and family use.
More on the construction details: The Rave is built with an EPS core and EVA top skin. The bottom skin is layered with hard polyethylene. As we mentioned, the side rails, tip and tail are constructed with high density EVA for added protection.
