if you fished the kish you could go from riffle to riffle and not have to get up, just walk off the board on gravel. would also give you a better look into the water than sitting in a yak. so is it a fad or just exercise ?

Way to dangerous to fish from , end up falling off trying to fight a fish , maybe even on hookset .

Fishing was my first thought when seeing one for the first time in 2009. Since then I've seen some marketed as a fishing SUP and also seen some modified to fish from. I think a kayak is more versatile but I can see a SUP having a niche in the fishing realm.

 

Just another tool? A fad? Only time (and sales) will tell...

Sounds like a good way to lose some gear and/or go for unwanted swims. I can also stand up in my boat and get across the lake a lot faster and with much less effort. I think that fad will stick around longer.

I've seen them used to fly fish for red fish in Florida backwaters.
