Newport G4 All Around Paddle Board - 10'6"
Newport G4 All Around Paddle Board
This is my second Newport G4 purchase. I bought the first one in 2020 and it was amazing! Surprising my husband with one for his birthday. He couldn't believe how stable and well built mine was.
I have one Nixy Board that I have been using for years. I just purchased a second one, and everyone at the company was very helpful in helping me decide which board to get. Unfortunately, now the season is over, so I have not used it yet. I will write a review next summer!
Loving my intro to paddleboarding!
I bought this board after trying my friend's Nixy. The rental board I first used was narrower, and I much prefer the broader footprint of the Newport. It's very stable, lightweight, and packs conveniently to travel in the back of my car and stores under the bed in my small apartment. The first minor issue I had was the pump was broken on arrival, but when I contacted Nixy, customer service was very quick to send me a replacement! The second minor issue I had was that two of the little washers that hold the screws in the fins have fallen off and I almost lost the screws themselves. Otherwise, I have thoroughly enjoyed my new paddleboard and the adventures I've had this season!
We love this board and Nixy. We have two boards, and they both are great. We are new to Paddleboarding, and the products are easy to transport, set up, and use. The customer support is fantastic. We had an issue with one board that shipped with a defect, and they switched it out the same day. Customer service is lacking in many companies, with everything going virtual, but not Nixy. I could go down to their warehouse and had multiple people assisting me with the exchange, which only took minutes. The entire experience has been great, and we will be buying from them in the future and referring them to our friends.
Very stable and maneuverable board. All the features are great. We both love the simulated wood finish decking, worth the extra money. And to have all 3 fins removable is great for transportation and storage. The paddle that comes with it is nice and light. The only feature we don't see a use for - is the "side keeper" that's supposed to be to hold the paddle... Way too small to be useful (or dependable) for that, but otherwise a great board with all the "bells and whistles" you need!
