2018 BLUE PLANET EASY FOILER

The Easy Foiler Se­ries was in­spired by no small amount of R&D and hours upon hours of test­ing and mod­i­fi­ca­tions by Robert and leg­endary west Oahu wa­ter­man Sam Pa’e. The Easy Foiler mod­els were de­signed to ac­com­plish two crit­i­cal tasks when it comes to foil­ing: 1) al­low the pad­dler to take off and 2) op­ti­mize re­spon­sive­ness while in flight. To do this, the board shape and out­line are as com­pact as pos­si­ble to dis­trib­ute vol­ume where you need it, al­low for as much pad­dle power and speed as is needed to take off, and gen­er­ate con­trol of the board to re­main in flight. If you’re think­ing about SUP avi­a­tion, look no fur­ther than the Blue Planet Easy Foiler Se­ries.

2018 BLUE PLANET EASY FOILER

The Easy Foiler is de­signed to make foil­ing as ap­proach­able and easy to learn as pos­si­ble. The thick front wing has a “di­he­dral” in the mid­dle to chan­nel wa­ter for di­rec­tional sta­bil­ity. The cen­tral part of the wing is fairly flat for lat­eral sta­bil­ity, while the ex­tended fuse­lage helps con­trol pitch for smooth flight. The down­turned wing tips al­low for smooth and con­trolled turns. All of the Easy Foiler parts are made of solid pre-preg car­bon fiber and high-den­sity foam cores for max­i­mum strength, stiff­ness and weight re­duc­tion. The Easy Foiler is avail­able in three front wing sizes based on square-cen­time­ter sur­face area. The sizes are 1240, 1440 and 1750. Foil sets will be avail­able in May 2018 that fea­ture mul­ti­ple front wing, back wing and mast sizes.

2018 BLUE PLANET POCKET KNIFE

When it comes to high per­for­mance SUP surf­ing, there is no bet­ter board of­fer­ing than the Blue Planet Pocket Se­ries. With a tem­plate and rocker line in­spired by high per­for­mance short­boards found in the is­lands of Hawai’i, these mod­els will help you bot­tom turn, carve, snap, cut­back, per­form floaters and get bar­reled like a pro. The pulled in nose al­lows for fast turns from the tail and speed down the line, while the squash tail con­trib­utes to drive and loosens up your turns on the face. These boards are de­lib­er­ately kept nar­row to min­i­mize drag while max­i­miz­ing rail to rail re­spon­sive­ness and surf per­for­mance.

BLUE PLANET POLYNESIAN OHANA

The TUF-TECH Se­ries is Blue Planet’s best of­fer­ing for those who are look­ing to get started with stand-up pad­dling. By us­ing heat, pres­sure and a PC/ABS plas­tic shell, the TUF-TECH boards have un­par­al­leled dura­bil­ity, are in­ex­pen­sive rel­a­tive to tra­di­tional board con­struc­tions, and are per­fect for re­cre­ational pad­dling and/or rental busi­nesses. The TUF-TECH Se­ries fea­tures five mod­els: 10’2 x 32 Polynesian War­rior, 10’6 x 33 Polynesian Voy­ager, 11’0 x 35 Polynesian Ohana, 11’6 x 31 Polynesian Touring and the 12’0 x 26.5 Polynesian Nose Rider prone surf­board.
