Sunova - Allwater Faast Pro - TR3 Tec - Race Paddleboard
The ALLWATER FAAST PRO was designed for the Carolina Cup for Kelly Margetts to compete. A race that starts in the ocean but then is a grind in the flat before returning to the ocean and you never know what the ocean will be like on the day. Sunova tested it for months in everything and it failed to disappoint. Requirements when designing was that it had to be stable for long distance, easy to ride bumps and control in general ocean conditions but also be competitive in the flat.
Perfect for downwind, rougher conditions, still flatwater.
Sunova set themselves a pretty tough goal, basically to make the best SUP race boards on the market. For that we invited Legend Kelly Margetts to come and take care of it with us. He then brought over Marcus Tardrew who has had years of experience with modern race shapes and development. Finally James Casey was supposed to join Kelly on the battlefield to show off and prove these boards in contests as what they are:
The Lightest. The Strongest. The Faastest!
TR3 uses special paulownia wood. Approximately three pieces are used per board thus faster to apply and lighter than other techniques. It’s double the thickness of balsa wood, while using the unique sandwich technique this creates a stiffer board but durable. The higher density of the paulownia wood makes for a stronger impact like paddle, heels, knees, or harder objects. The TR3 uses no carbon, but the combination of fiber and pulling the wood lower creates a similar effect as to using carbon. Keeping the unique hand brushed rail paint makes it difficult to notice paddle strokes and repairs as easy as possible. TR3 uses a single deck pad with embossed diamond grip.
