Walking On Water
Following the growing trend for windsurf brands to venture into the world of stand up paddle boarding, RRD have just announced the release of their first SUP.
Named Stand Up Eleven, the board is marketed towards newbie SUP riders, right through to more advanced surfers. Also, staying true to their roots, the 11 foot board seamlessly crosses over into the world of windsurfing with an in built mast track, making it the perfect tool for a freeride cruise or teaching friends while the swell takes a break.
For those of a more technical disposition, here are the finer details:
The thin volume profile and the generous rocker in combination with a wide outline , generate a great stability, but once used in the waves, the board becomes a real wave rider! Equipped with a middle handle to carry the board, we have used this board opening to extend it with a middle mast box in order to convert the SUP into a very efficient and fun sailboard!
50/50 round edges on the nose area , 60/40 full rails in the middle to improve paddling potential and stability, full 80/20 rails with round TUE in tail area to improve turning potential
Light concave on the nose are with V configuration rail to rail from middle to tail end. Double concave onto the V from the middle section until 60 cms from the tail.
EPS/ HD Glass/ Wood sandwich skin on stepping area with a combination of Glass fibres laminated in Single Shot moulding process. Deck covered with Softskin ™
US box Fiberglass CNC foiled Dolphin outline 8.5”
