This paddle board is designed as a specialised flat-water Touring paddle board, the Waterline promises the smoothest and most relaxing paddling sensation in conditions up to chin high chop.

A shape focused on achieving maximum speed and stability with no splash or sound.

At 75% speed, this hull is faster than our race boards, so in essence, for most riders, it’s the quickest ride ever.

Available sizes: 14’0″ x 28″ / 12’6″ x 28″

Key Features of the new 2020 Waterline Touring SUP

NEW 2IN1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP& PADDLE HOLDER
• NEW velcro loop to attach your paddle.
• Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and free up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.
• When not in use, the bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.
(Available only on Carbon Top models)

THE NARROW V-SHAPE NOSE
Slices through water without leaving a trace behind. Even when paddling at power, the nose displaces the water without disturbance or splash, creating a feeling of pure efficiency and speed. The narrow nose also helps the board track in a straight line.

PARALLEL MID-SECTION
The narrowed nose gradually widens into a more parallel mid-section to maximise stability where you stand.

WIDE TAIL
From the mid-section, the tail is kept wide to maintain stability when stepping back to turn and holds enough buoyancy to carry gears.

PROFILE OPTIMISED THE TRUE “WATERLINE”

Providing enough volume to glide smoothly without water splashing or wrapping over the deck.

RAIL EDGE
A defined rail edge helps restrict water wrapping onto the deck and sheers water off the nose.

CUTAWAY TAIL INSPIRED FROM YEARS OF SUCCESS IN WINDSURFING
• The cutaway at the tail increases the speed by reducing drag from the narrow wetted surface area.
• The cutaway allows you to increase speed as the water feels a narrower planing surface yet maintain stability from the full tail outline.
• The cutaway acts as a stabiliser, when conditions get choppy, the decks outline catches and stops the board from rolling.

RECESSED STANDING AREA
Lowers the paddler’s centre of gravity for increased stability and control.

RECESSED STORAGE COMPARTMENT
• Positioned just in front of the feet making it easy and fast to access any gears.
• Recessing compartment improves aerodynamics for a faster glide, limits water flushing in and makes it more secure to stow gears.

ANGLED DRAINAGE
The deck is precisely angled to let water flow efficiently out of the tail within just a couple strokes of paddling.

EVA TRACTION PAD WITH STANDING MARKS
• Soft EVA deck pad with crocodile texture provides a comfortable grip when paddling.
• Die-cut standing marks indicate the ideal standing position to optimise the smoothest glide.

STARTOUCH GRIP
Is used on the tail of the board for traction when stepping back to turn or when accessing gears.

BUNGEE TIE DOWN ON THE NOSE AND TAIL OF THE BOARD
• 4 x bungee inserts help secure gear and supplies on the nose.
• With 2 extra bungee inserts on the tail, perfect for carrying gear for longer distance paddlers.

FCS INSERT
• On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS
• STAR Mount supplied with every board to attach further accessories.
(Only on Carbon Top models)

FIN POSITION
• A Race Ultra fin is positioned far back for straight tracking.
• The Race Ultra has enough depth to maintain good lateral stability while being manoeuvrable to turn.
(Lite tech uses Dolfin 22″ Fin.)
