These boards allow stability for the first-time paddler while intermediate paddlers can continue to develop their surf and paddle skills.
Prime boards are the ideal family of SUPs for paddlers who want to enjoy paddling in flat water conditions or medium waves.
Unlike the Smoothies, the Primes come with a narrow tail and a pointy nose with a little more concave, which allows a prime entrance to choppy conditions, and steeper drops.
The durability of these boards, their unique shape, and affordability made them the ideal SUP boards for most conditions.

This was my first jaunt into the SUP world, not counting rentals/borrows. My original plan called for a pure touring board but after thinking about what I wanted to do, surfing and flat water, I landed on the Prime 10'2". I am happy that I did. I can cruise miles on the board in the flat or in the chop. it's equally up to the task of getting through the surf zone or riding a wave back to shore. The apparent limitation is me so I'm growing into it.
I've been pondering taking up paddleboarding for over a year, and finally decided to pull the trigger. After a bit of research, I came across Focus SUP. I met with Jacob (owner), and was pleasantly surprised by his patience and overall customer service. Typically when I take on anything new, it's with a "go big, or go home" mentality (not always a benefit:). Jacob spent the time needed to answer all of my questions and helped me choose the board best suited to my needs and experience level... and it wasn't the biggest, most expensive board in the house. I would not hesitate to refer any of my friends to Focus SUP! Thanks, Jacob! You've got a client for life!
This is one of the best all around SUP Boards for having a wonderful riding experience. You get great stability along with it being super responsive. Very Fun Board to paddle.
