Who says 10' SUPs are slow, super fun morning on the Jimmy Lewis 10' Destroyer.
Long fast lefts may have milked the distance on the last one though..3 waves over 240mtrs..

Nice! I love getting up to those speeds

Did you use the original Rip Curl watch or the new version? If new, what's it like?

An average shortboard speed on good waves is usually about 7m/s which equates to about 25km/h by my calcs. Hitting 27km/h max on a 10 footer is pretty sweet. Nice work Rob.

2 to 3 Foot super clean and not very crowded for that spot..
Lots of sharks through would not recommend surfing there
