Ohana developed the 12-6 TR (Touring/Race) to be an all around board for any level of paddler who may want to paddle for pleasure or decide to race in it’s class and be competitive.

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 12-6 TR has a smooth entry and great tail release.

JOE BARK teamed up with surf and paddle industry leader Surftech to produce a line of boards constructed utilizing their unri­valed Tuflite technology the ulti­mate in performance and durability. Joe’s designs, coupled with Surftech’s advanced composite sandwich fabrication, yield boards that are not only light and durable, but are also proven performers.

The displacement entry into a planing hull provides the efficiency needed for sprint paddling in all wind and water conditions.

Available Colors
Green, Blue or Yellow

This high performance stock racing design skillfully combines a rare blend of speed and stability.

Inspired by single person racing hulls ranging from outrigger canoes to Olympic sprint kayaks, “the Monster“ effortlessly slices through the water. The flat bottom and wide squaretail allow the board to plane at high speeds and still have a clean release.

This innovative race board is stable enough for any beginner, yet fast enough to compete at the highest level.

The race proven Hobie 12’6 Elite is a quintessential part of SUP racing evolution. Developed in conjunction with our world class team of elite paddlers, and most notably Byron Kurt who has been instrumental in the design’s subtle refinements.

The 12’6 Elite is one of the most well rounded race/tour boards on the SUP market today, it is stable in the chop, fast in all conditions, and performs well in the surf.

Utilizing the latest in high tech materials the Poly Carbon Epoxy construction “PCX” creates a board that is light weight, extremely durable and stiff for speed.

The 14' BARK Stand Up Dominator is the 'practical' distance and race board.

Light and responsive, this downwind and flat water model is suited to novice and expert paddlers alike.

Sleek, stable and quick, with a width of 26 to 30 inches, the Dominator is Joe Bark's most popular Stand Up board. Comes only in Eilte construction with partial carbon fiber.

Ohana developed the 14’ TR (Touring/Race) to be an all around board for any level of paddler. However, once prototyped and tested we found this board to be extremely stable and very fast as shown in the Catalina Challenge by taking first place in the Womens’ division. 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 14’ TR is the most quiet board we have developed.

The 14’ TR is constructed with 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.

10’-6 by 404 is a stable fast board; it was designed as a training board for Danny Ching. Easily transportable SUP for daily use.

After lugging around a 12’6” racing board we found that 10'6" seemed the ideal length.

The major difference in the two is it's Greater width allows for better stability.

Taking the glide characteristics of our race line and applying it to a wider and more forgiving platform, we created a fantastic line of touring stand up paddleboards. Our R8-TourTEC construction techniques and masterful use of materials make for a light and efficient design. With the overwhelming response of this line of boards and the multitude of requests last year, we are now offering these beautiful boards in 2 sizes, the original 11'4" and the all new 12'6" version. Once again these boards are bound to be a huge hit in 2012. Their efficient load carrying design and incredibly stable shape make them at home in ocean or flat water. Whether loaded down with gear for your overnighters or just out for fun, these impeccable looking boards will move well in all conditions.

The new Boardworks Raven 10’6” is designed for all purpose cruising, recreational racing, fishing, or just plain getting out on the water.

This model is designed for speed and stability in flatter water making it the perfect all purpose board for lakes, bays, harbors, and that deep docile river.
