Blu Wave – The Catalina 12.6′ Touring SUP
The 12.6 and 14.0 are designed for flat water cruising, training, touring, downwinding and recreational racing. A touring/displacement hull board that can do it all. Moderate nose and tail rocker will keep the nose up in choppy conditions or larger waves. Constructed with Blu Wave’s EBS construction, our bamboo veneer provides strength, in a beautiful exterior that will be the envy of paddlers on your local lake or river. Our recessed deck provides a lower centre of gravity and optimal paddling position and our slightly convex deck towards the nose, will shed water and keep your deck area dry. Multiple tie down points open up a world of possibilities for day tripping and multi-day expeditions.
Shapers Notes: Moderate rocker in the nose and tail provides lift and glide even in choppy conditions. Softer rails in the front, progressing too harder rails in the tail assist in glide and release of water on the flats. Our wider tail profile and 30” (29” for the 14.0) maximum width provides ample stability. Suited to beginners up to 220 lbs / advanced up to 250 lbs.
