THE O'SHEA 11'2" QSx... THE PERFECT ENTRY INTO THE WORLD OF TOURING AND ADVENTURE PADDLING.
AN INTRO TO TOURING
The O’Shea GT QSx Inflatable SUP is the the perfect entry into the world of adventure and touring Paddleboarding! Both stable and efficient for effortless glide. The design and rocker of the GT results in a board which provides good straight line speed.
Our Quad Stringer Technology, which comprises of 2 stiffening stringers on the top and 2 on the base, giving extreme stiffness without breaking the bank. When combined with 6″ thick drop stitch fabric, that stiffness is both longitudinally and torsionally. Stiffness provides better performance and handling for your first adventures.
EASY TO CARRY
The carrying handle on the GT makes carrying the inflated board too and from the water simple and easy. Off the water, our back pack board bags make transporting your iSUP package a doddle. The boards roll up and fit comfortably in the bag, along with your paddle and pump. The bags are made from heavy duty recycled nylon.
We make our boards with 1000D PVC, with double rail lap, which is the best & hardest wearing construction and is better than most premium or high end boards! We use top notch fittings on all of our boards, adding to the great value of this QSx package.
Is there a better value, quality SUP out there? We don't think there is. There are numerous budget models on the market, who's failings soon become apparent when they reach the water! SUP magazine say," ...Rigidity is excellent, which in turns boosts performance, and with a wallet friendly price there’s nothing to not like."
"The most noticeable trait with the GT is just how rigid it is – the Quad Stringer Technology doing its job perfectly. All inflatables bend to some degree. Rigidity, and how much of it you have, is possibly the biggest factor affecting performance. Manufacturing and overall shape influences this, as in low-quality air boards using poor quality materials and shoddy production techniques, doesn’t do anyone any favours. But the foundations of a quality product need to be in place first, which it is here.
The GT’s a versatile bit of kit that’ll take entry level SUPers on their first forays but allow experienced paddlers to enjoy stand up across a broader spectrum of conditions – all without breaking the bank though. As such the O’Shea QSX GT 11’2 would make a good first choice board that’ll last long into future seasons.
...Whether beginner, intermediate or advanced you’re certain to find a SUP application the GT fits and love taking it for a spin. Rigidity is excellent, which in turns boosts performance, and with a wallet friendly price there’s nothing to not like."
