Description

The Equinox takes its name from the change of seasons which tends to bring strong winds to certain parts of the world.

Rough water paddling demands a very different board shape. You need added volume and a very different approach to the designing of the nose area and a blend of semi-displacement and flatter planning areas. You want a board which can punch upwind and when turned downwind, will catch and chase bumps with ease. 

When the winds pick up and you want a board design which can cope with all the action of moving water, you want a design that works with the water around it, not against it. The board is designed to blend beautifully with the nuances of rougher waters. The added volume keeps you moving without stalling, the rounded nose keeps the ride smooth at all times and water runoff is super smooth and clean. There are no sharp edges, which means there are no nasty surprises, making the board highly predictable. Not just quick on rougher waters, it’s quick over flatter waters.

Downwind, this board is fast and responsive.

Upwind it’s comfortable in handling chop and makes the perfect racing board over waters which demand more of both paddler and board.
