Like its namesake island off the California coast, the Catalina 11.4 touring SUP is a perfect combination of beauty and ruggedness. Designed specifically for women and smaller paddlers, the shorter length than typical displacement hull SUP's provides an optimal length and weight for women paddlers seeking a board for longer paddles, training, touring and recreational racing. At 27 lbs, the board is light enough for most to handle carrying to the water and loading on rood racks. The Catalina Series touring boards are using the new Timber-Tech Construction. with natural birch and pine veneers, giving the boards a distinctly Canadian look and providing superior durability in conjunction with carbon fibre reinforced standing area and Kevlar reinforced rails and edges.
