Sea Eagle NN14 Inflatable Board Reviews
5 Discount Packages available. starting at $799
This was my first purchase from seaeagle. It was a Christmas gift for my wife. She has been out on it several time and I have been on it twice. It was sturdier than I expected. One person even said, Wow! That's one nice looking board. The needle nose design really works great! I can paddle on one side at times for many many strokes before having to switch sides. Construction is very well made and the drop stitch design is awesome. I use a rechargeable pump to inflate faster and then top it up to the proper psi with the included hand pump so I can get out on the water even faster. My next purchase is going to be the travel canoe. I would highly recommend seaeagle inflatables to anyone who likes to be out one the water.
The needlenose technology is tops. NN126R was too tippy for my size unfortunately, so traded up to the NN14 thankfully. It tracks GREAT and is a joy to tour with in windy or calm lake conditions. Inflatables have a different feel and stability, but it's been easy and fun to adjust from using a carbon 14 footer. The two-stage electric pump is the way to go - quiet and efficient. Hand pumping is a good alternate and warms you up nicely. Customer service is second to none, and Jerry in Tech support too, advising on the pump hose-nozzle arrangement. Now I'm set for the cold New England conditions with my dry suits and NN14, "the best tracking iSUP you can buy". I tend to choose top quality...and thus went with Sea Eagle - indeed the best in the business!
The NN14 performed as well as I hoped it would. I have used it at least 75 days so far. I have 2 hard boards that I use and if I were starting over I would just buy inflatables. The hard boards cost more and won't last as long. Now when I want to pull up in a rocky area I don't have to worry about every little bump dinging my board or worse the only change I would like to see on the NN14 is for it to be a couple of inches wider I would like a little more stability. Overall the quality is very good the other inflatables I've seen aren't as tough, I would recommend Sea Eagle to anyone.
I own four different inflatable sup. This is a great board. It is fast, straight tracking, portable, well built and tuff. I am very satisfied.
