The Vortex Air 12’6 x 24”, is a pure inflatable SUP race board designed to deliver unmatched speed over flat water. Crafted with precision and expertise, this board is meticulously designed to deliver unrivalled performance for medium to lightweight paddling athletes weighing up to approximately 75kg.

With a narrow width of 24” and 254 litre volume, the Vortex Air glides easily and quickly over water. Its low drag design ensures maximum efficiency, allowing maximum glide time with minimal resistance. Strategically designed with the widest apex just ahead of the paddler, the forward section offers excellent stability. The long tapered shape narrows towards the tail, facilitating efficient water run-off and enhancing overall speed. For sprint races or long-distance challenges, the Vortex Air is a race-winning design upon which you can reach your potential by extracting high speeds from this racing icon. Take your Vortex Air anywhere your adventures take you to train or compete.

The soft underfoot EVA foam ensures superior traction, allowing your feet and ankles to stay relaxed even during extended paddling sessions and in choppy waters. For beach Le Mans-styled racestarts and quick beach recoveries, a forward-mounted grab handle on the left side allows instant grab-and-go control. Whether launching into the water or returning to shore, this convenient feature ensures seamless transitions and efficient race strategies. At the rear, a fast-flow, hard-edged tail rail under the tail area improves water release and reduces drag, minimising vortices and back-wash for enhanced speed and efficiency. In the package, we’ve included our top-of-the-line Mistral-designed, all-carbon 8" high-performance super light 121g fin This fin elevates performance even further, providing optimal lateral stability and weed-free operation. A raised foam step-back enhances confidence during step-back turns, allowing for added connectivity with the board as you navigate around buoys and obstacles. Fabricated with our premium Twine-X® dual layer PVC, fused into a thin single layer, drop stitched with 15,000 woven polyester threads/m2. The set includes a bag, repair kit, carbon race fin and leg leash.

Few can match the performance of the Vortex Air design when it comes to inflatable SUP race boards. Whether you need a dedicated race board or a reliable training companion to accompany you between competitions, the Vortex Air sets the standard for excellence.

Materials, care & storage
  • Construction technology Twine-X
  • About technology Twine-X® incorporates two fused PVC layers into one of 1.4mm thickness, using a machine pre-lamination process and 15,000 cross-woven threads /m2. This results in increased board rigidity, faster board recoil back into shape, greater force at which recoil occurs, increased forward momentum from the recoil generated (speed x force), and a reduction of internal structural oscillation or shockwaves. Drop stitch material allows an inflatable paddle board to maintain its shape when inflated.
  • Threads per m2 15.000
  • Care Inspect seams regularly, carry out repairs using repair kit provided. Tighten valve using spanner supplied if leaking air. Remove stubborn marks with white spirit or PVC cleaner. Do not use abrasive creams or pads. Avoid prolonged strong UV exposure.
  • Storage Deflated Storage: Remove the fin, rinse the board with fresh water, towel or air dry. Deflate and fold neatly, place in the bag, and store indoors in a dry, well-ventilated space. Avoid humid heat sources. Inflated Storage: Repeat all steps, partially deflate to 8psi.
