The brand new 2020 SUP range just dropped and I am super excited to go through some of the boards here on the blog.
The first board is the Strike 14´ x 21.5 x 274 Liters.
Last years board was already really fast, so not a lot of change on this board.
What I really like about this board is that it works in all conditions, it´s actually not just a flat water board. I have been racing this board in a lot of different conditions Downwind, Upwind, Waves, etc. And it can handle everything, the wider tail really makes it easy and gives a lot of stability to surf and turn the board.
But of course, the Strikes biggest strength is flat water where it has a really efficient glide.
The volume in the nose makes it cut straight through the water and the double concave on the bottom gives great stability and makes the board stay high on the water as you put in the kilometers.
