With their uncanny speed, the 12'-6'' and the 14' have found a following among racers.
The 14' is better for larger paddlers (or those who might carry along dogs or small kids).
The 12'-6'' is more compact, better for smaller-statured paddlers, and it fits in several increasingly popular racing classes. With a grid of bulkheads and stringers inside to make the board stiff and light and colorful fabrics beneath the fiberglass, with that rare quality of being fast enough to race, but stable enough for first timers.
Tracking is great and a fine bow with kayak-derived shaping lifts the 12'-6'' and 14' up and over waves.
