    Stand up paddle board shapes Stand up paddle board shapes Presentation Transcript

    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Boards SUP  Board  Shapes www.thesurfersforum.comMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Boards Nose  Riders: Similar   to   an   all   around   shape   a   nose   rider   shape   meant   for   paddle   surfing   will   have   a   fairly   wide   nose   and   the   tail   can   be   a   variety   of   shapes. A   SUP   nose   riding   board   specific   for   surfing   will   have   much   narrower   tapered  rails  and  its  nose   thickness  will  be   less.  The  tail  will  many  Ames   be  thinner  as  well  to  allow  it  to  be  buried  into  the  waves  during  turns.   Examples  of  great  Nose  riding  SUP  shapes  are  the  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  Striker,   Coreban  -­‐  Icon,  Kings  -­‐  Knight  Model  and  Siren  -­‐  SojournMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Boards Rippers: SUP  boards  someAmes  referred  to  as  "rippers"  are  essenAally  blown  up   short   board  shapes  that   allow  the  paddle  surfer  to  turn  faster,   drop-­‐in   on  steeper  waves  and  negoAate  barrels  with  greater  ease. Typical  "Ripper"  shapes  have   a  pointy  nose  and  a  pulled-­‐in  tail   and  have   a  3  fin  "thruster"  or  4  fin  "Quad"  setup.   Examples  of  "Ripper  SUP"  shapes  are  the  Coreban  -­‐  Performer,  Coreban   -­‐  Nitro,  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  Mano  and  Kings  –  WCT  ModelMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Boards Big  Wave  Boards: Big  wave  boards   need  to   be   able  to  be  paddled  quickly  enough  to   catch   a  fast  moving  wave. Once  up   to   speed  a  big  wave  board  needs  to  be  able   to   make  the  drop   and  turn  at  high  speeds  while  keeping  its  rails  in  contact  with  the  wave. Typical  big  wave  boards   will  be   in  the  11  to   13   range   and  be  thinner  in   width   than  a  normal   board  with  very   pulled  in  point   nose   and  a  pin  tail.   A  Typical  fin  configuraAon  is  the  3  fin  "thruster". An  example  of  a  big  wave  gun  SUP  board  is  the  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  BomboraMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Board  Shapes Flat  Water  Racing  Boards: Racing   boards   are   designed   to   allow   the   paddler   to   move   through   the   water  very  fast,  with  the  least  amount  of  resistance. Although   race   boards   come   in   many   lengths   there   are   a   few   standard   lengths  that  conform  to  official  race  event  classes.   Trimming   with  your  rudder  will  allow  you  to  paddle  even  strokes  on   each   side  prevenAng  faAgue  while  travelling  in  your  desired  direcAon. Examples  of  Race  boards  include  the  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  Slice,  Coreban  -­‐  Alpha   Race  126",  Coreban  -­‐  Alpha  Race  14,  Nah  Skwell  -­‐  Race  and  Hovie  -­‐   CometMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Boards Downwind  Paddling: Downwind   Paddling   consists  of  paddling   with  the   wind   typically   from   point  A  to  B. In  the   ocean   it   is   possible   to   catch  open  ocean   swells   that   allow   the   paddler  to  ride  the  wave   for  short  distances.  Once  a  wave  is  caught   the   paddler  can  rest   for  a  few  seconds  and  adjust   their  direcAonal   course   before  paddling  again  into  another  wave  or  "runner". The   boPom   of  the   boards  are   typically  flat   with  fairly  sharp  rear  rails   allowing  them  to  ride  the  waves  and  change  direcAon  easily  if  needed. Examples  of  this  type  of  board  include  the  Coreban  -­‐  Alpha  Race  126"   and  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  AlbatrossMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Board  Shapes Touring  Paddle  Boards: A   touring  board  will   allow   you  to  cover  great  distances  and  have  ample   floataAon  to  allow  you  to  carry  extra  camping  gear. Accessories  for  touring  boards  can  include  deck  mount  aPachment  kits   that   allow   you   to   create   aPachment   points   for   strapping   down   backpacks,  dry  bags,  coolers  or   anything  else  you  see   fit   to  bring  along   with  you. A  great  example  of  a  Turing  SUP  board  is  the  Jimmy  Lewis  -­‐  AlbatrossMonday, 1 August 11
    • Stand  Up  Paddle  Board  Shapes River/Rapid  Paddle  Boards: A   growing   sector   of   Stand   Up   Paddle   boarding   is   the   use   of   paddle   boards  to  run  rivers  and  rapids. Many   choose   a   board   with   a   3   fin   thruster   configuraAon   commonly   used   for   surfing   which  allows  them  to   use   3   small   fins   instead  of  one   large  fin  giving  them  more  clearance  over  shallow  rocky  river  secAons.Monday, 1 August 11
