Introducing the 2019 Red Snapper Sports, 11’6 all round inflatable SUP. The "Duke Board" represents, strength, power and exploration. We are spreading the Aloha Spirit and bucking trends with this bold, Hawaiian influenced design, as we show our respect for the origins of paddle boarding and the man that was so integral in its history - Duke Kahanamoku.
The Duke board is ideal for the larger and taller rider - or for riders that are less confident in the water. The extra length and width, offer great stability, perfect for beginners to intermediate paddlers and those wanting to go out and have fun on the water. It comes as a complete kit, including removable centre fin, three piece light weight aluminium paddle, ankle leash, repair kit and a sturdy back pack for ease of transport. It’s well suited to inland waterways such as rivers, canals, lakes and lochs - as well as being a fun and epic ride on smaller waves and slight chop.
The shaping at the front of the board, will allow you to track easily in a straight line, whilst picking up speed with minimal effort. The slight progressive upturn on the nose section (also known as the rocker) will add to the overall glide and speed and prevent drag in slightly choppier waters.
Its durability has been rigorously tested and it comes with a full 12 months manufacturer guarantee.
