Body Glove Dynamo Rapid

A household name for many years in the watersports world, Body Glove have a range of water-specific footwear that are ideal for SUP. The Dynamo Rapid comes in a men’s model as well as the women’s version we’ve tested here. The Dynamo Rapid is something of a hybrid shoe in comparison to some of the others in the range, with…

R2B App Safety Alert App

This looks like such a great piece of software. I'm sure many of you paddle, run, surf or cycle on your own, only to be told by wiser, more sensible folk (usually parents or partners) that you really should text or call when you're back safely, or worse, never do it alone! The designer Stephen O'Connor runs a SUP school…

RRD Razzle Paddle R 90

Paddle technology has come a long way in recent years, and the difference between a high-end paddle like the Razzle from RRD and an entry level one has never been starker. This is the very top end of the range from RRD, and the paddle is packed with technology and clever tweaks aimed at making paddling easier, more efficient and…

SUP Reviews - Sunova Style 9'6 2017
Sunova Style

This board has a super interesting shape. For me, it was reminiscent of a Donald Takayama style performance nose rider longboard. It has a huge squared off spoon like nose with loads of bottom shape, straight parallel rails with lovely rounded tops into a sharper edge, going down to super pinched-in, performance looking pintail. In terms of finish, it looks…

F-One SUP Peak Vario Carbon

As with all the F-One gear I’ve seen, be it kite or SUP, this is an incredibly well-finished piece of equipment. There is a smart sheen finish on the lower half of the shaft, and then the upper half uses what they call ‘anti-skid’ which is a matte finish, presumably for choking down during your stroke. The Vario adjustable model…

Jimmy Lewis Hanalei

Some boards you just want to look at, and the Hanalei is one of those. I think for me it was the fact it felt well proportioned, at 130 litres spread over the 10-foot length and 28-inch width the volume seems relatively well distributed throughout the board, and to the untrained eye, it could look more like a scaled up…

Body Glove 3T Cinch

These new shoes from Body Glove have won awards, and rightfully so, these aren’t just your usual beach shoe, there is far more tech going on than that. They feature an easy on, three-toed design that improves your grip and balance no matter what you are doing. There is an elasticated cinch closure system, a stretch fit upper, an ultra-grip…

SUP Reviews - RRD C.O.T.A.N. Classic 7'11 2017
RRD C.O.T.A.N. Classic

C.O.T.A.N. stands for Cut Off Nose And Tail, and what we have here is a modern breed of SUP that does away with the traditional surf shape in favour of a stubby nose and tail with parallel rails. The parallel rails are the key to these modern designs, as the rails don’t have to taper to a traditional nose area…
