Blue Planet 12'6" x 29" x 5" x 286L Darkhorse
The Dark Horse race series is our allround race machine, it's built for going fast in majority of water conditions. The sharp piercing bow and soft entry rails are designed to displace water efficiently with the least amount of friction. The wide tail and optimised rocker line is designed to allow water to release smoothly off the rail to minimise the wake and the slight concave through the stance area gives great stability. The narrow 25 wide design series shapes have the speed and glide that will allow you to break away from the pack or beat your personal records when going for long training paddles.
Tested in flatwater conditions at the Sunshine Coast Lake Kawana SUP lap, Blue Planet Team Rider Ty Judson was able to knock out a time of 25 seconds even on this board - one of the quickest times on that circuit.
BOP/Short Course racer
Large 12'6" x 29" x 5" x 286L
The 14 foot version is made for speed and has the stability to work well in most conditions up to about 20 knots. The board has been tested in calm flatwater to Light Ocean downwinders and is great for beginners to professional riders up to about 100kgs.
In a lot of races in Australia we compete in "downwind races" that are really flatwater races with a bit of light wind (from the side, behind or into us). This is where you want to be on the darkhorse!
