LIVE Watersports, founded in 2013 and based in beautiful Clearwater, Florida by John Cleckner, set out to push the boundaries of what is “normal” in the paddle board world. The company’s goal was “to create and design boards that help everyone, old and young, big and small, non-athlete and weekend warrior to find and enjoy their passion. After all, it boils down to one question: What do you LIVE for?”
From the surface, their L2Utility model looks like your typical paddle board, but flip the board over and the hydro-V design shows a double hull. This design reduces the water-to-surface area thus increasing speed and maximizing buoyancy. The L2Utility is only 31 lbs. and can carry an impressive 350 lb. payload. The combination of speed, dual hull design and light-weight construction makes this a perfect board for first timers and pro paddlers.
The L2Fish allows paddlers to enjoy the most demanding stand-up paddle activities such as; fishing, hunting, windsurfing, yoga, and even camping. LIVE Watersports created a breakthrough design utilizing a catamaran style hull with hollow core construction. This styling maximizes buoyancy and reduces the weight-to-volume ratio while slicing quickly through rough water. At 12 feet 6 inches, weighing only 34 lbs. the L2Fish has a payload capacity of 500 lbs. This means additional passengers, coolers, camping gear, dive tanks, and even man’s best friend can come along for the ride.
At the top of the line by LIVE Watersports is the ultimate fishing paddle board, the L4Expedition. This board has more everything. More paddle board, 14 feet in length, more total deck space at 8 feet, and more total capacity holding 700 lbs. This board delivers all the advantages of the catamaran style design (stability, speed, ease of paddling), while providing the paddler with the ability to carry more equipment and to move around more easily.
LIVE Watersports offers a variety of handy accessories for all 3 models and several stock colors from which to choose. For those who want their own color, LIVE can do that too. They will create a custom color hull, custom deck color, even custom logos and deck pads based on your specifications. The L2Fish and L4Expedition boards are also easily outfitted with YakAttack gear to create the perfect silent fishing vessel. So load up your gear, fill the coolers, grab your friends and get on the water.!
