The Rico 9' board is a great board for SUP surfing. This board is great for those who plan on paddle board surfing with a more progressive style. It has a thin, pulled-in tail to making the board very responsive and maneuverable but at the same time it is plenty stable in-between waves with it's 31" width. The board is constructed with some of the most advanced technology on the market. A 1" Diamond Kevlar weave is vacuum bagged over the entire board giving it a very hard exoskeleton. This allows a much lighter foam to be used making the board very light for those who might want to venture into the air. The diamond pattern in the kevlar still allows the board to feel and flex like fiberglass. The board also feature Carbon Fiber wrapped rails protecting the board from all of the paddle strikes to the rails that can often happen when stand up paddle board surfing. This board has a 4+1 fin setup allowing you to have many different fin configurations to accommodate for all of the different styles of stand up surfing. Another feature this board offers is a built-in GoPro mount on the nose for those who want to capture their best surf maneuvers on film.
