2020 Raceboards - Blitz
The brand new 2020 SUP range just dropped and I am super excited to go through some of the boards here on the blog.
Stoked to share this brand new board, Blitz 14´ x 23.5 x 289 Liters.
Really happy with the changes on this board and you are definitely going to see me on this board a lot for the upcoming events.
The biggest change from last year is the nose, narrower and more pointy to make Upwind, Flat water, and Drafting faster.
The tail is slightly wider for more stability, faster buoy turns and better surfing and downwind.
The board is a little more narrow (23.5), but because of the tail it's still very stable and with the rails sharp at the standing area and more round towards the tail and nose gives amazing stability + a lot of maneuverability.
After testing the board in sprinting I was really impressed with the top speed and how quick it gets up there. I am not sure exactly why, but I think the new nose and wider tail really helps.
Overall I absolutely love this board and cant wait to race it more!
