Who's it for? People looking for more speed and glide to enjoy longer touring trips
Our range of Sport inflatable SUPs are designed for paddlers who want to up their game from our Ride range. They offer enhanced performance, extra capabilities as well as plenty of class.
The 12’6″ Sport is the longest of the three, providing the most glide and speed whilst still being easy to paddle. It is a great board to bridge the gap to our race boards however the 30″ width offers great stability so you can really enjoy longer touring trips. If you are looking for a board that will eat up the miles in a leisurely fashion then look no further. The Red embossed decked not only provides a great cosmetic finish but also offers additional grip whilst paddling.
As with all of our Sport boards, the 12’6″ comes as standard with a durable fin from world leading surfboard fin creators FCS. They slot into the fin box easily by hand and are secured in place with a finger bolt meaning you don’t need to take your tool kit to the beach.
The 12’6″ Sport comes with our industry leading Titan Pump which enables you to pump your board in half the time, with half the effort compared to other SUP pumps. The board is also easily transported and stored in our All Terrain backpack which allows you to Explore Your World!
I am so happy with my sport board, 30 x 12.6
I purchased it the end of 2016, had some bad luck breaking my ankle and 3 middlefoot bones during a sup session at sea, this was June 30 2017. After a long recovery, many pysiotherapist sessions, lots of excersises and orthopediatric surgeants who told me to forget paddling, I am so happy to be back on my board. We left our hometown IJmuiden May 17 with our small jacht, I paddled in nice cities like Delft, Breda, but also on the bigger water in Zeeland, in Belgium in Gent and Brugge, now we are in France, I discovered the beautiful clear water at the Somme Canal... life with my paddleboard is great, 3 more months to go. When I am on my board I clean the water, taking out bottles, caps, plastic bags, balls etc.
I find it also very special that my Red only once a month needs a little bit of extra air.
Purchased the 2016 version, which is practically identical to the '17 model, and it's a great board. I was paddling rigid Bics, Bounces, and Surftecs, and the RPC Sport 12'6" beats them all with a great balance of convenience, comfort, and performance. This is a narrower board then I was used to, but it's making me a better paddler and more confident in my skills.
I'm a stocky dude, and this board is just right for my size. It takes a beating. In fact I transport it on my roof rack because I have no space to store it, and blowing it up is a pain if you just want to get on the water (the only drawback, but manageable with a Schrader adapter which allows you to pump up the board to high pressure with a compressor). When collapsed, it fits well in the backpack along with my three-piece paddle and all the necessary gear (fin, battens, pump, fix-it kit, PFD, leash, and other small stuff). I haven't flown with it yet, but intend to take it with me wherever I can.
It's also great in winter. I was out on this board breaking ice on a nearby river in March. Kitted out with survival gear, you can have an amazing experience in the snow on this board.
Awesome board for getting to the H20 at low tides or humping thru trails.
Love the high PSI and battens for keeping it rigid.Tracks very well.
Highly recommend having one of these in the quiver,or as a primary board.
Great board. A bit difficult to balance on but after a while you get used to it. Can't wait for the second summer on Lake Ontario!
Really like the board and quality of construction. I live near a lake and really enjoy being able to get it in the water in a few minutes. I took it on a sailing trip to Catalina Island and everyone enjoyed giving it a try. A couple of conserns are that the travel bag could benefit from some extra fabric where the contact points are, and there is a raised area on the bottom of the hull aft of the fin below where the valve assembly lies.
Looking forward to more exploring with this great board.
