New Board Coming Oct. 2010 - Weekend Warrior
Long time since an update, I still have to fill you in on our awesome adventures at Surf Expo 2010 in Orlando. More importantly, a new shape we have been developing over the summer will be available at the end of October.
While still surfers at our roots, we felt it was time to expand our board line with a hybrid touring/race shape. This board is still loads of fun stand up paddle surfing, but with cooler weather coming this board is perfect for long distance trips, fitness training, and weekend warrior racing.
The board is far from a full on race shape, rather it is capable of any sort of paddling the water has to offer. However, this shape is FAST, with a maximum thickness of 5'' and beautiful nose and tail rocker; the overall foil will be a great poor paddler's option to dominate in race season. The shape continues our proven use of 3x6 layers of fiberglass on the deck and bottom. Not pictured is the standard 3/4 deck track pad.
The new board will continue Southern Sun Surf's tradition of offering awesome boards at affordable prices. This shape features our highest quality construction yet. The finish, durability and performance will blow away the pricier big-name competition.
More pictures to follow, along with updates on more opportunities to try this board out. Shout out to Ryan and his killer site www.gulfster.com for another awesome board of the week feature.
