Drawing upon the success of the Vortex designs which began with the basic Vortex (multiple winner of the 11 Cities and other premier events and past world record 24hr distance record holder), we extrapolated that into the Vortex XL, adding more volume in the forward nose area and now we have taken the design a step further with our Vortex SD1 or “Special Development”.

Key features include very much deeper stand in area and hardened / sharp rails from the mid section back which has resulted in greater stability, greater paddler control and improved glide. Our premier pro-level board at 21.25″ width, is remarkably stable, though we also offer a 23″ version.
We’ve beefed up the nose area and very marginally reduced the downward curvature, so as to reduce the porpoising affect just a little. The resultant board is truly one step beyond our original Vortex shape, taking on a journey of advancement worthy of this seminal board design.
