Bloody unreal board and I never ride my Traditional shaped surf SUPs any more. One of the fastest boards I have used and so good rail to rail and IMO the perfect shape for fun performance SUP's.

Not sure how many people have them that post on here as most I know don't really come to forms that much. Maybe a few might surprise me!!??

If you send Pete from SUPworld magazine a message I am sure he would give you a good review as this is all he rides now and rips on it!

I own ONE as a disclaimer

The specs can be what ever you like as most of these are custom done.

Here are some pics of my 7'8

It would be worthless, it is already quite hard to predict how a board will handle by seeing it "in the flesh", it would be quite unfair from just pics, as they are always somewhat distorted. Plus you can only really see the outline but not the rocker, rail shape and volume distribution that are so important.

But often, if the board is pleasing to the eye, it will perform well... And Paul's board above have really a smooth outline! I guess the sleek nose should make it a very fast paddler for its size

Yep never stopped making them.

Ben loves this style of board and everyone that owns one always seems to also really enjoy it. When we started working with Ben he brought this board that he had already made and was riding and gave me a go and it changed my whole thought process on this style of board.

Ben will design it to suit and priced from $1599 they are pretty good value.

We at ONE have always done surfing SUPS and all round boards but just never really pushed it but the boards Ben designs are as good as any thing I have ridden.

I have always wondered why the swallowtail/fish style board has never been prevalent in the SUP world, as it is quite common place in prone board design.
