Pelican Flow 116

pelican-logo[1]I recently had the opportunity to test out the Flow 116 Stand Up Paddleboard from Pelican, and was very pleased.  I initially got them rigged up and ready for some weekend time on the water poling the flats in northeast Florida.  The board is light enough and easy enough to carry solo, and there’s plenty of room for a multitude of rigging possibilities.  I prefer to keep things simple in the rigging department, so I simply added a rod holder and a camera mount for my action cam.  The board handled extremely well and offered some great stability on the open flats as well as in narrow and tight creeks.  The paddling on the board was comfortable for standing for several hours, and it cruised at a nice speed when heading to the flats.  On the flats, this SUP is extremely quiet, allowing for the angler to sneak up on the fish, and drafts extremely shallow.  I found the Flow 116 very easy to mount, stand, sit, and maneuver throughout the day, providing a comfortable experience.  The construction of the paddleboard allows for movement over different terrain and structure as well.  I’d highly recommend testing out the Pelican Flow 116 if you’re looking to try out Stand Up Paddleboarding for recreational and angling adventures.

    Did you add some tie-down hooks for the cooler on the Flow 116 with the same process of the rod holder install or just have the cooler sitting on top without any bracing?

      Ross, I simply sit it on top. I’ve never had an issue with it sitting on top. You could add tie down points to it tho fairly easy I believe.
