Where's the price?

Hey everyone -- The good folks at Advanced Elements are big supporters of the community, and we recognize that it might still be a bit chilly outside for members to be thinking about getting on the water this year, so they've offered to make the lowest price available for a group of even 3+ members. Thanks to everyone who already joined to make that possible - the drop looks like it will be successful, so you've got a few hours left to jump on board before this ship sails...
SUPs are for kooks
Is this the AE1064 model as described on the Advanced Elements website?
How big are the fins (in particular the deep fin)?
Do we get the same warranty as on the AE website?
Is the front keel a rigid hull, or is it part of the inflatable hull?

Hi nfasteen, Thanks very much for your questions! This is actually the 11' model (AE1063). There are 3 fins, the center deep fin is 9" tall and the 2 side fins are 4.25" tall. The warranty is the same as any of our other SUP's. The front displacement feature is rigid molde plastic and it can take a lot of abuse. It is designed to cut through the water like a rigid SUP. Please let us know if you have any other questions. This is an incredible deal!

It is a great deal, but I think I'm going to go with one of your inflatable kayaks instead. Just a bit more stable for fishing where I'm at. Thanks!
Like anything,... tents, sleepingbags, etc... there are always going to be cheaper options for any product category. The real difference with the Fishbone SUP is that it has a patented displacement hull feature that is bonded to the nose of the SUP. Other inflatables have a flat surface at the nose, whereas this unique design mimics the form of a hardshell touring/racing type SUPs. It is designed for tracking, and cuts through the water very nicely. It is constructed with 6" thick, double layer, drop-stitch material and designed to be inflated to around 15-18psi which makes the board super rigid. It also includes a Bravo Single Action hand pump with pressure gauge, and carry bag, along with maintence kit and manual. Yep, just deflate it and roll it up like a sleeping bag and take it anywhere!

Hi JerkyKen, Thanks for your reply. Yes, I actually co-founded Advanced Elements 15 years ago with a passion for product design. Sorry, I thought it was obvious by the detail that I had supplied. I had noticed that there was only one comment here and thought that it would be a good idea to get more detailed info out in reply as it seemed like there was not much focus on what are the real difference in design on this SUP vs. others that are out there. This being the first patented displacement hull inflatable SUP. Hopefully it is useful information for Massdrop users. Thanks for reading and if you have any other questions please let me know.
@JerkyKen - Thanks for the question. We add a bold "V" next to any certified vendor, meaning that the member officially represents that company. Usually the name is something obvious, like VargoOutdoors. However, in this case it was not so clear and so we've added that vendor signifier to CFH3's account.
Do i get the man with the board?
I was really psyched to see an SUP show up in my "New Products" email. Great to see MD branching out. This looks like a good inflatable but, sadly, the price remains too inflated (to me) to recommend friends buy it here. I bought a Jimmy Styx Seeker (stupid name, I know) 10'6" board with pump, paddle, leash, and bag/backpack for $600 from West Marine...and absolutely love it. Sure, it's not an 11 footer, but after a day getting used to it (inflatables are thicker and thus less stable than solid boarda) I was rocking it out in choppy water. (I'm 6'1" 200 lbs and it fits me just fine.) I've since taken it out on the Hudson in lower Manhattan (don't fall in!), into the ocean, and down parts of the Delaware, along with many rides across various lakes. I highly, highly recommend it (and any SUP for that matter). Best part about an inflatable SUP is when you're done for the day you can roll it up and throw it in the trunk. Let me know if you have any questions.
