L2Fish Paddle Board Review [Top 3 Pros & Cons]
The L2Fish Paddle Board
Today we’re going to be doing a review of the popular L2Fish catamaran paddle board.
To begin, this is a really unique board.
I’ve been using it for the past two years so I’ve got a really good feel for everything this board can do (plus a few small downsides).
For the record, we are not sponsored or affiliated with Livewater Sports (the maker of the L2Fish board), so I’m gonna talk about both the pros and the cons (because we are totally unbiased here at Salt Strong and we always try our best to give fair and balanced reviews).
Finally, if you already own one of these boards (or have used one in the past,) I’d love to hear your experience and thoughts in the comment section down below.
Let’s dig in.
Pros Of The L2Fish
- This paddle board is SUPER stable (to the point you can catch tarpon with two grown adults on the board like our friends Joey Antonelli and Logan Athey did). I’ve even put my skiff platform on the board to get a couple more feet of elevation and it was still incredibly stable.
- It’s 34-inches wide and almost impossible to flip over with the catamaran style hull
- No drag in the middle of the board
- Not much hull slap (compared to other boards that don’t have a catamaran hull) – very important for sight fishing
- The SUP has tracks up and down each side of the board to easily add in any accessories (YakAttack, etc)
- Comes in numerous colors and even comes in a 14ft version as well called the Expedition (this L2Fish in the review is a 12-footer)
- It weighs 50 pounds so it’s light enough to load, launch, and carry by myself (much lighter than my kayak)
- Can hold 500 pounds of weight (so even with me, my gear, a full cooler, and a dog, this paddleboard still runs smooth)
- Easy to use for any size person (from kids to super heavy or super tall anglers)
- It looks awesome and turns heads (I’ve found it’s a great conversation starter)
Cons Of The L2Fish
- The main con is the cost, but then again, you usually get what you pay for… Note: the 12ft version is $2,300 and the 14ft version of this board (The Expedition) is $2600
- Storage (since it’s a little thicker than most boards – because of the amazing catamaran stability – it takes a little more room to store it)
- The 14ft version is a little tougher to transport by yourself

In conclusion, if you don’t like this board, then you probably hate puppies also…
The only real downside is the cost and weight (if you compared it to a super light SUP).
But if you are serious about fishing, if you want a board that can hold all of your gear (plus your cooler and dog), this is the best board we’ve seen on the market.
In fact, we personally own two of them now (Joe just bought a new one for his 40th birthday – in black – it looks awesome).
