Description

Thanks to its extra versatile shape, the Key West Angel provides speed, performance and manoeuvrability.
With 5" in thickness, this ride is stiff yet lightweight, which makes transport and manoeuvring a cinch!

At 9'6" in length, this paddle board glides well on the water, even on longer distances. The slightly upward nose cuts through the waves and will allow you to ride fast whatever the conditions. The tail of the board was also designed to provide a better glide without compromising on manoeuvrability or stability.
A relatively short board, the Angel is very stable and manoeuvrable at the same time and will allow you to explore otherwise hard-to-reach areas.

The 3 fins make turning easier and are quite responsive. They make the SUP more stable and prevent its tail from slipping sideways. The Key West Angel is perfect for the light to medium-weight riders, It will do great on flat water and in small waves.

Construction of a Key West Board

Inflatable paddle boards don’t have a rigid shell. The deck and bottom of the board are joined together by a weaving of thousands of tiny polyester threads. This technology is called Dropstitch. The outside layer is made of reinforced coated PVC. An additional PVC layer called a stringer adds extra stiffness to the board.
Drop stitch is an amazing material used to build SUP boards, but it has also been used to make floating platforms and even airplane wings! Drop stitch allows to build inflatable SUPs that can be blown up to high pressure, up to 15 psi. This means you get hard board performance along with ease of transport and storage of an inflatable SUP.

Valve

Key West chose to equip their boards with next-gen valves. Say goodbye to the old ULI valve. Let us now introduce the push push valve! How does it work?

1 – Unscrew the valve cap
2 – Push the button and turn it clockwise so that it is in Pin Out position.
3 – Connect the pump hose to the valve inflate outlet.
4 – Inflate until you reach the desired pressure.

The Angel paddle board should be blown up to 12 to 15 psi. Key West valves are really convenient and easy to use.

Stiff and manoeuvrable

The Angel is the shortest board in the Key West range. An all-round paddle board, the Angel is great for touring, surfing and cruising on flat water. With “only” 12 cm in thickness, it is really stiff and can be used by riders up tp 70 kg!

Although it is extra stable, the Key West Angel is also very manoeuvrable and features an anti-slip, crocodile skin-like pad. This SUP is perfect for the lightweight riders who want to have fun in the waves or on flat water!

A paddle board, but not only!

Key West SUP boards are versatile. With less than 10 kg, the Angel is lightweight and super manoeuvrable!

Kayak mode

Little extra: this SUP can double as a kayak! Simply attach a kayak seat to the board and you’re good to go! This is one of the things that make Key West boards so innovative and versatile!

Fins



The Key West Angel features 3 fins : 2 built-in side fins and one removable centre fin. The side fins are very rugged. In case they bend out of shape while in the transport bag, simply pour hot water on them or use a hair-dryer and reshape them by hand.
The centre fin is 10" long and has to be inserted in the box rail and then locked into place with the locking pin.



Footpad



The footpad of a paddle board is important when it comes to stability and manoeuvrability! The anti-slip pad will help you improve your balance and the crocodile-like skin structure is very soft and comfortable.

In addition to the foot pad, the new Key West SUP boards feature a kick pad which offers increased manoeuvrability and make sharp turns in the waves or turn more easily and with more precision in flatwater. To make a kick turn, step back and place your back foot on the kick pad. Most of your weight will be located on the tail of the SUP which will make the nose tilt upward. With a bit of practice it's quite easy to master this surfing tip which can come in very handy when you need to make precision turns or when the sea gets choppy.

What you have to keep in mind

The length of a SUP board has an impact on its gliding/speed performance and on the turns. The longer the board, the faster it goes but also the more difficult it is to turn. A wider board will be more stable but slower and more difficult to turn. Shorter boards tend to have 4" in thickness but the Angel has 5" which provides more stiffness and stability.
