The PAPENOO models can be classified as “short SUP” with a focus on speed, acceleration and maneuverability to rip off smaller waves like never before!The initial target was to design a board as short as possible to gain in maneuverability and agility. A rectangular outline proved the right solution to keep enough hull area and volume for stability. We have also worked with a lot of attention on the glide of these boards. The shape of PAPENOO features a genuine planning hull which is both efficient and enjoyable to ride.SHAPE / DESIGN :With its rectangular outline, we have been able to keep enough volume while maintaining a reasonable width. It’s uselessto make very wide boards which wouldn’t have the ability to take on speed.For a given width the PAPENOO are slightly longer than most of the similar type boards and this was made to ensure a good paddling speed and a super easy take off. The rocker line is tailored for this short shape which resulted in straighter lines to get the speed while maneuverability is provided by the reduced length.
