The Wave Rider Pro Elite 9.6
New Design for 2021! The Wave Rider Pro was Blu Wave’s first performance wave board. At home in waves of all sizes, this surf specific SUP with its pulled in nose and swallow tail provides great acceleration and wave catching ease. At 9’6” in length, with a narrow profile, this thing is a speed machine, and a nimble board for its length. A perfect transition board for those looking to graduate from an all round shape to a surf specific SUP for enhanced carving and maneuverability. New for 2021 our CSC Hybrid Construction (Carbon Sandwich Construction) combines fiberglass and paulownia wood veneer on the deck and bottom with carbon rails to provide a light weight performance board with stiffness and durability provided by the carbon rail outline. In a move towards more sustainable construction methods we are using paulownia wood in the construction. Paulownia is one of the worlds fastest growing timbers, and has ideal weight to strength properties. Also available in EV (Extra Volume) version at 32” wide for increased volume for a larger rider, or beginner to intermediate SUP surfer looking for enhanced stability.
