Thunder Description

Just because you live in the penthouse of a major city does not mean you can't have a performance board. The Thunder is all you'd want from a hard shell SUP, but in an inflatable. The unique carbon exoskeleton makes this amazing board as stiff as an epoxy board, and that means you're as efficient on the water.  With great glide and top end speed, this board is a dream to paddle, whether you're on an inland lake, or open ocean. With a dramatically pulled in nose, the Thunder cuts effortlessly through the water giving you great glide, and the unique "flip-up" fin allows you to use the board in shallow water or rocky rivers.
