Long Bow Race SUP Review (Narcy)

NARCY LONGBOW SUP REVIEW

our SUP Team rider Narcy has been riding with us since our very inception he was one of the first people to try every one of our sups and helped create and refine many of o our designs today. Narcy has been stand up paddle boarding for many years with his entire life devoted to the water and open ocean being a kitesurf and windsurf instructor for many years. paddle-boarding was always a passion for him and since 2012 has been training every day improving his skill enough to compete in the European tour. Narcy has been using our longbow since 2015 and has spent more time on this sup than any other person. he has helped us refine it for the open ocean as well as downwinding and catching waves. it really is the perfect open ocean racer

 

Narcy made this video above talking about the features he likes on the longbow Race SUP and how that transfers in to performance and particular conditions especially of the island of Fuerteventura   

What Narcy Said About The Longbow

 

“The rocker of the board allows the board to not stick when riding big or small waves”

 

“The really thin nose allows you keep a lot of speed when you paddling upwind and doesn’t catch a lot of wind when we have side wind”

 

“when you rising this wave up to the line up its cutting this wave like a knife”

“Don’t be shy about 24 1/2  and 25” wide with the bottom concaves and the small “V” on the tail You will find all the balance you need.

“The 2 different handles one in the centre and one on the bow allow you to bring this strong and light board were ever you like whether it is walking down to the beach or in a beach race”

 

RACE SUP

The Longbow race sup has been our star performer in the racing world as its one of the only fully carbon race sups that are under half the price of what other companies are putting out. our longbow has been redesigned and improved to give you the most updated version of our ultimate open ocean race we can, don’t believe us feel free to book in for a demo and try for yourself.

7 + 14 =

THE LONG BOW

We designed the Long Bow for advanced to elite level paddlers, as a stand-up paddle race competitor. We know having the right equipment is crucial for your success and having a board that can deal with anything from massive chop to side wind conditions is hugely important.

This board has some incredible features to help it glide through the water, firstly its modified rolled nose and hull help provide lift and get you up to planning speed, its bottom contours feature a concave in the centre opening up into a slight V shape in the tail to help better release and maximize stability when paddling even in the harshest conditions. This will give you all the comfort & stability of paddling a much wider board but without the extra width. The tail width and outline help to provide float and a stable surface to control in turns as well as make rail transfers in downwind sessions or on waves a piece of cake.

If you’re looking for the ideal board for speed in the open ocean, whether it’s flat water speed racing, downwind cruising or riding waves in the surf this board does it all. It’s our pro race board with outstanding features for elite level performance.

FEATURES

  • Carbon fibre construction 

  • Sleek design to accelerate through the water with ease

  • Dropped deck for better stability and cadence

  • High volume to help propel you forward and minimise drag 

  • Race handles positioned perfectly for water entry and exit

  • Open ocean rocker to help catch waves downwind

  • Concaves to help funnel water towards the tail

The War Bird is a dedicated wave SUP for when the surf is pumping. This board is everything you want in a wave SUP, precision turning, easy wave catching and great fun to paddle. It’s designed for paddlers who can already surf in waves and looking for a board to take them to that next level of performance.

It’s Versatile 

It comes as standard with our hybrid carbon technology consisting of a carbon fibre and fibreglass EPOXY sandwich construction for the perfect ratio of lightweight ease of use, to great strength and durability. We have combined its precision shaped CNC cut EPS core with extra reinforcement under the deck nose & tail to ensure the board has incredible impact resistance & strength giving it rigidity and durability for when the surf gets rough. This board comes as standard with a fully grooved EVA Deck pad with an integrated Ledged handle.

Design 

The design of the War Bird is set up for experienced riders who want to surf in the pocket and on the open face. It’s outline design and bottom contours allow for a smooth entry into the wave, whilst its performance rocker gives an instantaneous response to rail transitions with no lag, giving you a responsive feeling and connection to the wave. It has a thinned-out nose & tail to minimise swing weight and improve control. Its tail has been thinned out and foiled to give you the maximum control when turning even in the most critical part of the wave

 

Surf Sup Performance 

The War Bird has a 5-fin set up usually ridden as a quad or thruster with the ability to switch out fins for more hollow or gradual waves. This board is going to perform great in waist high to well overhead surf and really excel in more powerful waves. If you’re a paddler looking for a real performance sup for wave surfing, then look no further. A great performance waves SUP for anyone who wants to make the most out of their waves.

Up Your Surf SUP Game With The Widow Maker

The widow maker is our performance surf SUP designed for high-end performance wave riding. It has a short overall length compared with most other SUPS which allows it to fit perfectly in the pocket of the wave with ease.

1 Design

It’s thinned out nose and tail give it a lighter high-performance feel, whilst the wider width and lower rocker line help generate a lot of speed, enabling the rider to make smooth, controlled, rail-to-rail transitions with minimal effort. It’s so reactive you will forget you’re on a sup. The foiled out tail adds manoeuvrability in the turns, combined with an increase in stability when riding waves from the wider tail template, giving you the float needed to catch waves without sacrificing performance.

2 Construction 

The board has been given extra volume and width for great stability and forgiveness when turning this is helped by the single concave throughout its entire length that helps maximise the stability, complemented by the amplified outline allows it to catch waves with ease. This board is so much fun you’re not going to be able to hold back your smile.

EPS core bonded to a wood veneer outer shell using fibreglass and the finest epoxy resins. Resulting in stand up paddle boards with amazing strength to weight ratio and excellent flex and rebound characteristics.

3 Whats it good for?

Fast & loose and so much fun this board is going to be great for novice’s, child stand up paddlers or intermediate to advanced wave riders, we guarantee you’ll take to it quickly and easily. This board is going to perform great in small to medium-sized waves and really excel in more powerful waves. A great wave rider for anyone looking to get the most out of the waves they get.

Has a Quad/thruster 5 fin set up usually ridden as a quad but the great ability to change to a thruster for more hollow waves?
