Boardworks Surf is happy to annouce that both Ohana and Badfish have joined the Boardworks SUP family and will be available to all our accounts in Canada this coming spring ’12. Watch for these boards on the water next spring, or pre-order one now at your local SUP shop….
Here are the design details:
Ohana developed the 12-6 and 14 TR (Touring/Race) to be an all around design for any level of paddler who may want to paddle for fitness training, pleasure or competitive racing. The cutting nose entry and stable rail and bottom contours make this shape perform extremely well in rough and windy conditions into the wind, down wind and mixed swells. In flat water conditions the TR series has a smooth entry and great tail release, being one of the most quiet designs that Ohana has produced.
The 10’6 TR is a smaller fun version of the 12’6 and 14′ TR’s. With the same design characteristics , it was built for juniors or smaller men and women that want the same speed and stability attributed to the 12’6 & 14′, without the additional length and volume. Fun, Fast and stable, the 10’6 TR completes the quiver for the whole family.
The Ohana TR series construction: 1 pound EPS foam, epoxy resins over 2 layers fiberglass top and bottom with another layer within the console area. Deck is gloss and polish with a sanded bottom finish. Shape includes a domed deck to repel water over the top surface and a flat console for foot placement. Console runs out the tail to remove any water which may wash onto the deck area. The boards come with a deck pad. Race fin is not included.
