FAST AND STABLE DISPLACEMENT SUPs

The all new Sportsters are a great compromise between our Race and Cruiser boards.  You could also call them Freerace.
For most amateur racers they will be faster than full-on race boards as they are more stable and easier to handle than race boards.  They work great in anything from really flat-water to slightly choppy conditions.  They feel at home on lakes, rivers and the ocean.

This makes them perfect, fast touring boards, and great race boards for the recreational racers or the bigger guys.

Their increased width (compared to full-on race boards) makes them very stable even when it gets a bit rough or when you get tired.  Based on race board designs they come with a low displacement piercing nose which cuts through the water like a knife.
Paddling is almost effortless and you feel the acceleration with every paddle stroke.

Their scoop rocker line is also based on the race concept assuring maximum waterline.
The thin hull ensures a low standing position, which allows you to transfer all the paddling power into a forward momentum.  The rounded rails are forgiving, and do not get affected by sideways chop or wind.
They are perfect platforms for touring, really fast flat-water boards which can be used for racing and are great for core work out and fitness.

The new Sportsters are great boards for the ambitious flat-water paddler who wants the speed of a race board but enjoys slightly easier handling than those thoroughbred race boards.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRUISER AND SPORTSTER

The Cruisers are super stable “all-water” boards which provide good speed.  They work in anything from flat-water to really rough waters as well as for downwind tours where you want to take advantage and catch ocean swells.
The more racy Sportsters are also stable boards but are not as super stable as the Cruisers and have a bottom curve which is more aimed at flat-water paddling. This is why they are considerably faster in flat-water than the Cruisers.
