Paddleboarding With Laird Hamilton and Puma

Earlier this Summer I was on-hand as Puma launched both their Mar Mostro Volvo 70 yacht and the paddleboard inspired by it. The limited edition carbon fiber stand-up paddleboard was designed by Hamilton (the ‘honorary’ 12th member of the PUMA Ocean Race crew) and Juan K, designer of the Mar Mostro. The board turns really well, and sits higher on the water than earlier stand-up paddleboards. I got to learn firsthand that paddleboarding is fairly simple if you have balance, and that no matter what if you’re standing next to Laird Hamilton, you’ll feel like a sissy.
