Description

The 23.5” wide Vortex Air 14’ inflatable SUP race board is designed without compromise for high top-end speed and long glides and suits the medium-weight rider up to 80kg if speed is your goal. This 280 litre Vortex Air design excels in glide so that every stroke returns a positive output for energy expended. While flat water is where it performs best, with good skills, you can easily paddle your way over choppy waters.

The Vortex Air inflatable race has the widest apex of the board just forward of the paddler, so it has good stability in its forward half. The long tapered shape narrows towards the tail, assisting water run-off and leading to less resistance. Whether sprint racing or distance paddling, the Vortex Air is a quality design that improves your paddling ability. Whether used for training sessions when away from home in readiness for hardboard racing or used for competitive racing, the Vortex Air race SUP is an exceptional performance inflatable SUP.

The non-slip decking offers reassuring traction and comfort when paddling full speed or cruising, promoting longer, more comfortable sessions. An angulated forward-mounted grab handle on the left side allows instant grab-and-go control for off-the-beach, Le Mans-styled starts and quick recoveries when returning to shore. Our fast-flow, hard-edged tail rail is critical to the design, which improves water release and reduces drag. It is unique to this board and provides a genuine performance advantage. Additionally, we’ve included our top-of-the-line Mistral all-carbon 8" high-performance super light (121g) race fin, which offers optimum directional stability and weed-free security. A step-back pad provides secure footing for radical around the marker turns. Without compromise, we’ve used our Twine-X® dual layer PVC, fused into a thin single layer, drop stitched with 15,000 woven polyester threads/m2, making the Vortex Air lightweight. It includes a bag, repair kit, carbon race fin and leg leash.

The standard in high-performance regulation 14’ inflatable SUP race board design and technology, the Vortex Air is a cut above others due to its well-thought-out design together with unique refinements, including the provision of our top-of-the-line carbon race fin.

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.
