We love the Monarch. It is a phenomenally versatile paddleboard that is the "king of do everything, anywhere."
Our Dig team loves to paddle it on the lakes and calm rivers. Monarch has graced Gunlock, Sand Hollow, and our home lake at Quail Creek State Park, as well as some stretches of the Colorado River.
It's light, holds a good amount of weight, and is easy to paddle. We love the integrated, unbreakable fin system, too.
From Badfish: "Badfish’s unique exoskeleton design allows the Monarch to be light, without sacrificing rigidity. Everything you need fits in the included bag that you can check on your next flight or throw in the back of the car for a weekend at the lake. Whether it’s your first paddleboard or the board you always grab first from your quiver, the Monarch is the king of do everything, anywhere."
