A WORD FROM THE MAKER
LIGHTBOARDCORP.NELO FREERACER 14´x 25.2" HOLLOW CONSTRUCTION . Really stoked to present our latest edition of a super versatile racer . tech racer . beach racer and also sportive tourer. It´s a surf maniac and will handle beach race conditions with ease. It is fast enough in the flats to compete against specialized designs. It turns on a dime and that´s why it will shine in short distance flatwater techraces as well. It is very comfortable in handling and pretty lightweight and stiff due to a double sandwich hollow construction.
The rockerline offers a gentle nose scoop and a low tailrocker to catch small bumps. The rails are super soft in the front and the nose will not catch any direction. The bottom design in the back 3rd flows into a slight v with tucked under edge rails . The outline is full of harmony with a nice small squash tail.
The finbox positioning is a bit more to the front to keep the board easy to navigate. The stance position is quite low given a classic design. Lot´s of volume in the front keep the board floating over waves.
We will arrange soon more pictures in action/surf. Some could test the board already at the LEGENDOFOX race and I can promise you it is a fast raceboard in 25.2" width. It will be suited perfectly for paddlers 85kg+ and also more lightweight paddlers looking for a gentle sportive Tourer. I took it out on a testrun to join Normen for a fast round and could follow his pace in a draft of 10 - 10.5kmh and you can hammer the board to some top speed as well. But the general strength is the versatility of this design - ONE FOR ALL CONDITIONS !
Triple carbon foam epoxy vacuum heat cured race boards are lighter, stiffer and faster. The standing cockpit area and monocoque body is recognizable stiff and we offer now a double sandwich construction in the standing and central bottom area to even bring more stiffness into the hull. The 25.2" wide version has 290l volume and end of 2021 we expect to launch the 23.5" dimension for experienced lightweight paddlers.
The boards are delivered including our race keel fin -with the signature super fast profile. This fin sits perfectly in the 10" chinook us box. Lightweight neoprene handles, sea waterproof V4A screws and washers and a comfortable 5mm diamond grip pad round up the set up.

The advantage of composites is that they don´t require much maintenance; of course there are some crucial rules to extend the lifetime of your race board:
- do not put it in the sun for long periods
- do not tight it too strongly on the rack and place it upside down
- never store or transport it inside the cover if the board is not well dry
- and treat it like a baby
Raceboards should be used only by trained persons or under supervision
we offer a 2 year warranty but do not take responsibility for:
- damage caused by transport
- repairs made by unauthorized personnel
This warranty covers any fabrication defects on the board or parts, as well as changes in the material characteristics.
