WELCOME TO RIOT STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDS, OUR NEW REBRANDED NAME. THE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

hello

Yoga on the Belissima

We often have people ask us “what exactly is the Belissima for”? Well, thats a tough one because it’s for everything. But unlike the other “all around” boards out there that are… well… all ROUND… the Belissima is designed to be a really efficient paddling board on flatwater, with a keeled displacement bow. This increased glide translates to a more enjoyable paddling experience. But as important, is the crossover nature of the Belissima. It’s also a great board for learning to surf small waves, and lastly, the Belissima is fast becoming a favorite for Yoga. The wide flat deck is perfect for this, and the traction pad we use on the Belissima is designed not to chafe and rub, so you can be sure that your session is about getting fit, not getting rubbed the wrong way. This is why the Belissima is quickly becoming a favorite. Yeah, we know… we really did think of everything!

Boards for women

Women have become the largest part of SUP paddling over the last two years, with recreational and fitness paddling being the main activities. As such, we are expanding our SUP line for women, and have two boards targeted specifically for women. The Belissima, which has done very well for us. At 10’6″ and weighing only 17lbs, this stable and easy to use board has been one of our best sellers because of its versatility and weight (the fact that its an awesome fuchsia had nothing to do with it I’m sure). But there has been a call for a faster dedicated flat water fitness board that is equally easy to carry, store and transport, but has the glide and speed of a dedicated race board. At 9’9″ and 16lbs, this new derivative of the acclaimed Lightning certainly seems to be fitting that bill. Slated to be released in the spring of 2014 as a production board, it is available now as a custom model.

Developing the 2014 boards

It’s that time of the year where we’re developing our lineup of boards for 2014, and so I wanted to just talk about the first one, an as yet unnamed board for women looking for a super lightweight, easy to transport, store and carry board for fitness paddling. Faster than the Belissima on flat water (the trade off being reduced stability), this 9’9″ x 28″ design literally flies across the water effortlessly, making it the ultimate board for women who are wanting something fun and fast, without having to deal with the cumbersome weight and size of a full length race board. We’ve already sold a few of these as “custom” boards in 2013, but it’ll be a stock board next year. Here are some photos of the board in action.
