Prolimit SUP Neoprene Top Airmax

Depending on where you paddle a bit of warmth can often be a welcome thing. The SUP Neoprene Top Airmax from Prolimit is designed to provide you with warmth while still being able to handle the odd wipeout. Made from high-quality 1mm thick, soft AirFlex 550+ neoprene the quality is very apparent. Airmax vented side panels are there to regulate…

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…

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…

RRD Morpho

To look at, this board is typical of RRD. I’ve known them as a brand for well over a decade now and seen their various offerings in SUP/Kite and windsurf over the years and I like the fact they often defy conventional design for boards. They like to take a proven concept and shake it up a little with something…

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…

F-One SUP Papenoo Pro Convertible

This board is bang on trend as to where SUP surfing is going for a lot of people. Parallel rails are really the thing of the moment, and this board is straight out of that way of thinking. Lots of brands are now making short, wide nose and wide tailed boards like this. However, what caught my eye about the…
