Lots posted about the Sunova surf SUPs but wondered if many (who are not dealers or sponsored riders) have paddled the Sunova raceboards - if so - how do they match up to the other offerings out there at the moment in terms of speed, durability and use for all round racing?
Hmmmmm.....so no one buys their raceboards? Or they are shy
I will see my first faast on Thursday.
I think I will be able to demo one as well..... I'm no racer, but I will get some fast paddlers on one and see what they think.
They will be the 1st Faasts in the US, so I 'm looking forwarto this
I had one for a few days, 12'6 x 27. For me as a non racer I would have liked to try the 29" which would have been a lot more stable.
Found the 27" surprisingly tippy but very light and quick. Beautiful well made board and seems pretty tough.
I have a sunnova 14 x 28, they call it a touring boards but i can confirm it holds it own against similar width boards. I also have a Gulliver race again 14x28 and i find the sunnova initially more tippy although just a quick in flat water. There is a small weight difference although as a novice i cant make any differences on the water.
The glide on the sunnova to me in amazing and it tracks nice and straight.
I might consider to have a go at the jamieson park 5km on the sunnova just to see how i stack up on it.
