hello

Corran dominates the Kern Fesitival SUP class

Recently returning from the Dusi race in South Africa, Corran went to the 50th annual Kern festival held in Southern California this weekend, and dominated the event with his two new race boards, the Dusi and the SL350, winning two of the three events and taking 2nd in the other. Winning the 16 minute sprint race with a commanding 45 second lead (including two “silly” swims while trying new untested lines through some of the rapids), he started out his weekend well, and went on to win the Boarder Cross against fellow Olympic kayaker Eric Giddens, who lives and trains on the Kern river. Eric managed to edge Corran out of 1st place for the slalom win, using his left handed paddling to his advantage on the course that by luck happened to favor a “leftie”. Eric took 2nd in the boardercross, and third in the downriver sprint, being beaten out by local paddler and Corran SUP dealer John Stalone who was also racing a Dusi. In 4th place in the sprint was Matt Hudgins, racing the inflatable iDusi (with broken ribs no less). Overall it was a fantastic weekend, with decent flows and an enthusiastic crowd of spectators and participants.

New iDusi goes into production

As a result of the astounding success Corran had at the Dusi Marathon, taking first place in the first ever SUP participation in this 50yr old race, we have decided to make an inflatable version, called the iDusi. While the board carries the name of this amazing race, really the target market for it is paddlers who want the speed and enjoyment of paddling a 17′ board¬† -all the glide and excitement – without the problems of storage and transport of such a craft.

The logic was simple. If you’re going to roll the board up into a back pack, then it doesn’t matter how long it is when its blown up – as far as convenience is concerned. But then once you take the back-pack off, and blow this up, you have a really fun and exciting board to paddle – something that will allow you to cover great distances with retaliative ease so you can really explore your local environment.

“It makes sense why some people want a 12’6″ board for general fitness and distance paddling”, explained Corran Addison, the boards designer. “You have to store that board somewhere. But this is different. Since they roll up into about the same size,¬† it makes perfect sense that the longer board is the way to go. It just makes the whole paddling experience more enjoyable.”

The iDusi is a 2015 model, and is only available in small numbers as a “pre-production” board in 2014.
