20 years ago Surftech was created to bring new technology to the process of board building. Founder, Randy French, saw that the way boards were being made hadn’t changed for over 40 years. He made it his mission to bring revolutionary new construction technologies to the world.
Randy kept pushing and looking for better materials and techniques that would enable him to exactly reproduce master shapes that were lighter, stronger and more ecologically sustainable. The result was the creation of Surftech’s Tuflite epoxy composite technology, which was a game-changer in the industry. After years of research and testing, Surftech was proud to be the first company to offer a real alternative to the fossil-based foam cores currently being used. The resulting “Natural Composite” core material is made from a renewable cellulose fiber that is sustainable and recyclable. Unlike the competition, Surftech’s Fused-Cell cores are actually waterproof and have remarkable flex properties, retaining incredible structural integrity for years of enjoyment.
Surftech continues to develop a wide variety of technologies and the evolutionary progression continues.
Hulakai’s founder, Jun, is an experienced local waterman from the Big Island of Hawaii who has been designing boards for over 13 years. He is deeply involved with the company’s research and development.
The carefully chosen materials and construction provide memory and flex like that of a traditional style surfboard. All Hulakai SUP boards are constructed of EPS closed cell foam. This core is then hand shaped and hand laid with epoxy.
Hulakai boards offer a natural, effortless feel while paddling and surfing (especially in choppy water) unlike molded boards. With molded boards, there is no memory or flex; this makes the board too rigid and buoyant for a smooth ride.
Using a SUP board offers recreational enjoyment as well as a great core workout. It is also a wonderful exercise for improving balance and coordination.
RAVE Sports is proud to introduce a complete line of SUP boards specifically designed for “Flat Water Paddlers” who don’t happen to live by the ocean but want to experience the fastest growing water sport.
The Touring Series has a displacement hull and hard rails designed for experienced flat water paddlers looking to enjoy long range paddling or recreational racing, making long distance adventures much easier than with a traditional surf style board.
The Lake Cruiser Series is the perfect combination board for paddlers looking for a good workout or for short to moderate excursions. These boards are for novice or experienced recreational flat water paddlers looking for stability and ease of paddling on lakes, rivers and bays. The unique hard rail design on a traditional shape provides greater stability and easier maneuverability.
The FS110 soft top is a perfect combination of comfort and performance not found in typical hard deck stand up paddle boards. The FS110 SUP is perfect for yoga too! The soft EVA top provides the ultimate yoga mat feeling on water, and the hard edge with 31” width gives the board a great stable platform for exercising or leisurely paddling. The high density EVA sides, tip, and tail protect the board from paddle dings and other minor abrasions.
