The positive, full-page review shares, “Boardworks’ sleek Kraken Touring model is a quintessential, all-around flat- and open-water sled with a noticeable emphasis on stability and comfort. Its shape is a beefed-up version of Boardworks’ staple race offering, the Eradicator, a versatile design engineered for speed. By adding a few inches of width and swapping out the Eradicator’s carbon layup for a wrapped wood veneer, the Kraken Touring offers a less-specialized, more user-friendly option for fitness and leisure paddlers alike, with enhanced steadiness and durability that doesn’t drastically compromise the design’s signature speedi­ness. Flat rocker through the center keeps the cruising clip quick, and merges with a V bottom in the tail so water can release fluidly without drag. The subtle but effective entry rocker was a welcome addition in rough water and surf. Besides the additional width, the board’s pronounced stability is partly attributable to its mildly re­cessed cockpit which affords a lower center of gravity that also con­tributes secure footing on the EVA traction pad. The Kraken comes with four tie-down plugs in the nose to secure bungees for storage, but as with many touring boards, we’d like even more storage. For a one-board quiver or a well-rounded addition that perorms reliably in both flat and open water, you won’t be disappointed with the Kraken Touring. -MM “
