Our inspiration came from the enjoyment of being able to explore the Swedish Islands by paddle.
Archipelago is a fusion of the success from our race and downwind boards. The stable characteristics of Ocean together with the glide of Numinous were combined to design the ultimate touring board.
Archipelagos deck area and unique shape is specially designed to carry supplies and touring equipment. The construction is a tough however lightweight premium glass technology using Ultra-Light EPS Core. The board has structural Uni directional stringers to increase stiffness and gliding sensation.
Leash and Camera Mounts
The board comes with leash plugs forward and aft for your choice and length of leash. It also comes with a gopro mount in the mid nose area to capture all your action.
Ocean is supplied with top quality EVA deck pads, designed specifically for comfort.
The board comes with an elastic and cord system both forward and aft to allow you to stow away clothing and equipment as and when you need it.
The design combines an “adjusted” Ocean outline and Numinous’s rocker, this makes the board stable and low resistance. It incorporates a deep central channel that is designed to assist stability and forward tracking. The bow is an aero shape to help with cross-wind paddling and keep the board tracking forward, the deck is lowered using hydrostatic stability programs to place at its minimal height. This makes the board extremely stable. The rails are relatively high for a touring board to keep water from coming in and therefore keep the deck dry. The deck gradually transitions to a raised tail, the gradual transition allows you to move up and down the board smoothly and the raised tail helps surf small waves along with keeping water out.
Drainage holes are positioned with a down and negative aft angle to minimise water coming back in. The deck is slightly raised in the middle to promote water to the drainage holes.
The board comes with a Honey comb fibreglass fin, that is optimised for forward tacking and low drag. The fin box is US 10 inch box that allows the rider to customise there setup depending on their riding style.
