Vibe gets into the fishing SUP game

Vibe Kayaks, the Georgia-based fishing and recreational kayak and outdoors company, has entered the growing sport of standup paddleboard (SUP) angling with today’s official sale of the highly-anticipated Maverick 120 SUP at Vibe dealers and online. 

“The best product innovations are fueled by passion, and we knew that we could create a better stand-up paddleboard for fanatical fishermen like ourselves,” said Josh Thomas, a founding partner at Vibe. “We improved on the rotomolded boards that are currently in the market by using foam-injection technology to create a more stable deck that is great for skinny or deep water. The board is equipped to help die-hards catch more fish and gives a more comfortable experience to those who just want to get out on the water and paddle.”

With its pressure-injected foam hull and rotomolded polyethene shell, the Vibe Maverick 120 SUP offers a sink-proof, no-flex deck. This technology results in a solid, lightweight board that’s easy to carry while offering a weight capacity of 475 lbs. Designed with the angler in mind, the Maverick 120 includes 5 integrated gear tracks, front and rear bungee systems, an 8-inch sealed hatch and multiple paddle parks. 

If you don’t want to stand up for your entire trip, Vibe’s framed chair or the Vibe Element 20 cooler work great as a seat on the Maverick 120 SUP.

SUP Angling Advantages

Using a SUP is a good alternative or addition to kayak fishing. In addition to the height advantage of stand-up fishing, the Maverick 120 SUP is easy to transport, making it convenient to get on the water quickly. Because it’s better for the body to stand, fishermen may enjoy less body and back aches. The multi-purpose board can be used for fishing, recreation and touring rivers, lakes and oceans. 

Specs and features include:

  • Carries up to 475 lbs while weighing in at just 72 lbs
  • Sturdy rotomolded single piece high density polyethylene exterior
  • Sink proof pressure-injected foam interior
  • Superior comfort with a no-flex solid deck, 5 easy-grip carrying handles, and comfort grip deck padding
  • Integrated gear tracks, 2 side bungee paddle parks and 6 cooler or seat tie-down points
  • Flat, open deck design with front and rear bungee tie-down systems and an 8” sealed hatch

The Vibe Maverick 120 SUP package, which includes a Vibe Roamer SUP Paddle, retails for $899. It is available December 1, 2017 online and at select dealers nationwide.
