Like its namesake island off the California coast, our all new Catalina 11.4 touring SUP is a perfect combination of beauty and ruggedness. Designed specifically for women, the shorter length than typical displacement hull SUPs provides an optimal length and weight for women paddlers seeking a board for longer paddles, training, touring and recreational racing. at 28lbs, the lightweight but extremely durable epoxy Bamboo construction (EBS) provides a board that can be carried with ease, mounted on a roof rack and provides optimal glide on the water. A recessed standing area provides added stability and a lower centre of gravity for optimal paddling position. Shapers notes: Moderate rocker in the nose and tail provides lift and glide even in choppy conditions. Softer rails in the front, progressing too harder rails in the tail assist in glide and release of water on the flats. Our wider tail profile and 30 maximum width provides ample stability for beginner stand-up paddlers. Suited to beginners up to 170lbs / advanced up to 200 lbs.
