So i took the Sunova Shroom 7`9 out for a blast and did a video of my thoughts before and after so you get it fresh from my mind. It was windy so bare with on the background noise but to summarise the Shroom is the perfect option for a SUP er that wants the benefit that a short board gives ie; less swing wait, quicker snappier turns and lightness plus the benefit of a bigger board as in stabiliyy and glide.
To get these attributes into one board is pure genius.
If you dont get many days in the waves then a board that is stable but without comprimisig performance is essential. “Width = stability” but to get a rail to engage on a wide board is difficult unless your 90 kg plus. This is one of many areas where the Shroom excels with its radical step deck that acts as a cantilever to engage the lovely rail shape despite its width which gives performance, brilliant.
The Shroom is the board that delivers all of the attributes in one extremely fun board, so dont be put off by its radical looks just have a go.
