2017 Loco Amigo All-Round SUP Paddle Board
The Amigo line effectively replaces the old all-rounders. Despite it’s competitive successes we’ve retired the 8’11” as most beginners want something 9’5”-11′ in length and reasonably wide for their first attempts and research suggests that intermediates are moving onto shorter and fatter or more surfboard inspired shapes as progression boards, which we’re well placed to offer in our other ranges. The range retains last year’s paint job with blue and green being the standard colour-way with the option to pre-order purple and green for anyone wanting something a little bit different (very limited stock models too). We like to think the purple will appeal more to ladies but initial interest would suggest the purple is just as popular with the guys too! The construction has again been optimised using a lighter EPS core and a clever bamboo sandwich lay up which means the boards will be lightweight and durable (typically .25kg lighter than 2016). We’ve also decided to incorporate a mast track as standard so the Amigo can be used as a WindSUP as well as offering perfect all-round performance in paddle mode. The 9’11” and 10’5” double up perfectly as stable platforms for SUP Yoga.
‘Compared to my old board the Amigo is about half the weight. It paddles great on the flat but really comes into it’s own in the waves. Not tried it with a sail yet but Loco’s team seem to be charging on them’
Colin, West Yorks
‘Despite my better judgement I listened to the hype and bought an iSUP which I immediately hated. Not long after I bumped into Joe up in Tiree where I tried the Amigo in both paddle and wind modes and instantly fell in love. Cracking bit of lightweight user-friendly kit, well priced and I believe in supporting local brands.’
