A WORD FROM THE MAKER
LIGHTBOARDCORP.NELO OCEANRACER 14´x 27" HOLLOW CONSTRUCTION . A missing part in our range of SUP racedesigns has been a model that is easy to handle in heavy chop and ocean conditions.
But we designed the brand-new OCEANRACER not only to be used when it´s getting rough. It is a nice blend of fast flatwater capabilities, extraordinary stability and freedom to go over and with waves. The rockerline offers a gentle nose scoop and an accelerated tailkick when the going get´s tough. The center part is a more straight line that catches small bumbs with ease and is pretty fast in the flat. The pintail helps to run against waves and the overall flat to round bottom hull with soft edges doesn´t catch a rail and is easy to keep in direction.
The OCEANRACER is not only a premium choice for top athletes oceanracing but also a very fast race touring model for those who are looking for the most relaxed flatwater race experience. The first model is offered in 14 x 27” but we will come up soon with a 14´x 24.5” version which will suits the worlds best in open ocean conditions.
The construction is tough with double sanwich bottom and standing area and extra layers in the rails. The sideline is quite high to prevent water entry. The dug-out rails are slim and the stance width option is wide. The finbox positioning is a bit more to the front to keep the board easy to navigate.
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 boards are delivered including our beach race 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.
