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

hello

Custom USA made boards

Over 90% of our production is in the USA. This is because our plastic boards are made in the USA, so its always fun when we get to make custom USA made boards too. Here are some photos of an awesome high performance surfing shape we made. In girl colours! It’s based on the Mach1, with a wider nose (to compensate for the shorter length), and at 7’9″ x 27″ x 4″ this thing is going to be a real ripper with a 115lbs surfer on it. As you can see, the deck is reinforced with 2 layers of Carbon fiber, pus 2 layers of S glass making this puppy strong, even if its only weighs 12lbs..

Inflatable board preview

Here are a few images of the new inflatable boards: the Thunder 12’6″, Matrix 10’6″ and Combat 9’3″. These boards are totally unique in the world of inflatable SUP because they don’t have the usual flexing issues. Look at how the boards are NOT bending where the paddlers feet are in these photos. While these are just in a pool, you get a good idea of just how stiff they are, and stiffness means performance! At just 3psi, these are stiffer than any other board at 15psi, and you can pump these to 15+psi. That’s a great thing. IN addition, the nose of both the Matrix and Thunder are displacement, so you don’t get the usual slapping on the waters surface – making the board slow. So enjoy the preview of these boards….

STATIC – in the ocean

As the name suggests, the Static is designed for surfing static waves – the kind you find on rivers where the water flows through rapids and creates standing waves. Generally, boards designed for these waves are chunkier, and more like a stand on kayak than a surfing board, and while they work just fine on river waves, they cannot be surfed well in traditional ocean waves. This is where the Static differs from all other “river specific” surfing boards. It’s an awesome board in the surf. In fact, it’s so fun that the last few days everyone in our group has been fighting over who gets to surf it (when we have all these other boards available). The “Rail Hull” design which is critical in making it easy and forgiving on river waves, means that this 29″ wide and 4.5″ thick board does not handle like other “chunky” shapes. In fact, it rolls from rail to rail like a board an inch thinner and 2″ narrower, making it very responsive in the surf. Surfing it is like nothing else… lightning fast response time and agility, the first few waves are best described as startling. And lastly, the kevlar construction saved the board. In true California fashion, I was surfing the beach break without a leash, and lost the board after a lip turn. It ran 100 yards into the beach which was all rocks rubble, where it spent the better part of a minute getting pounded by the shore break into the rocks. The only damage… some scratches. Long live kevlar!.
