Olympic Gold Medal Rower Adam Kreek says:
“Every rower needs an Oar Board®. It’s a light, compact, stable sculling platform, even in the wind and rough water. Imagine a rowing-camping adventure launched from your boat house or summer cottage.”
Elite Rowing Coach & Olympic Gold Medal Rower Xeno Muller says:
“The sliding rigger is an amazing coaching tool because it feels totally natural to drive with the legs before engaging the upper body. New rowers experience less difficulty understanding and learning a proper row stroke.”
💙 Because of the greater stability found in a standup paddle board, learning to row with the Oar Board® practically eliminates the ‘fear factor’ – the major reason new rowers quit the sport before getting in enough time and experience to fall in love with it.
💙 The toughness of an inflatable SUP is much greater than a hard fibreglass paddle board and several times tougher than a fragile racing shell. Novices learn boat handling skills with no breakage problems and lower cost.
💙 Storage is not a problem as the Oar Board® unit and paddle board can be left inflated and stacked together on a short rack, or detached, taken down, deflated and rolled up compactly.
💙 All weather rowing in colder seasons, cold water, waves, or boat wakes, is no longer a problem as the chance of capsizing is virtually eliminated. Also, self-rescue is very easy as the paddle board is totally buoyant and virtually unsinkable.
💙 The Oar Board® is ideal as a fitness trainer for novices, competitors, masters or anyone who loves to row and wants to stay fit and in top form.
💙 The cost of an Oar Board® and paddle board combo is about half that of a new racing shell.
💙 The Oar Board® unit is easily attached to almost any stand up paddleboard over 10’ long. We recommend our custom designed inflatable paddle boards that we specifically designed for sculling.
