WHIPLASH

Our spe­cialty flat wa­ter de­sign, the Whiplash has been a sta­ple in our lineup and con­tin­ues its evo­lu­tion in 2018. Next level glide, re­mark­able track­ing and but­tery re­lease all add up to one fast hull. We now of­fer two styles of cock­pits to ac­com­mo­date your pref­er­ence and fine tune your ride, our sig­na­ture “flat deck” and our new “dugout” deep re­cessed deck. The Whiplash gained more vol­ume where you need it and an in­no­va­tive hy­brid step tail bot­tom de­vel­oped by Dave Boehne. It has next level glide and is the best Whiplash yet. We of­fer the Probox 4 fin set up stan­dard on all Whiplash boards. Flat wa­ter to mild chop, Whiplash is your choice.

BLACK­FISH

The Black­fish has in­flu­enced an in­dus­try. All the top board man­u­fac­tur­ers now of­fer a board sim­i­lar to the famed de­sign. Since 2014, Dave Boehne has worked with Slater Trout to de­velop this con­cept and now every­one is play­ing catch up. Black­fish comes stan­dard with Probox 4 fin set up. The Black­fish is a plan­ing hull hy­brid that shines in all con­di­tions: ocean, up­wind, down­wind, chop, in and out of surf. The sta­bil­ity is built in the out­line and in­no­va­tive con­cave de­sign. This makes for very fast get up and go and higher max sprint speeds. 2018 gained even more sta­bil­ity, al­low­ing rid­ers to size down in width and push speed lim­its. If you pad­dle mostly in rough con­di­tions, go Black­fish.

DOWN­TOWN

In­tro­duc­ing the all-new Down­town down­wind, a choppy wa­ter board, avail­able in two ver­sions: tra­di­tional flat deck and new “dugout.” Dave Boehne de­vel­oped the Down­town with down­wind stand­outs Toby Crack­nell (5th Place, M20) and Braly Joy (9th Is­land, for­merly SIC). Out­line is a clas­sic wide point for­ward shape with a pulled in mini square tail. This gives sta­bil­ity and early en­try into bumps while for­ward grind­ing and ma­neu­ver­abil­ity and re­lease in the back. High rails for sta­bil­ity and hard edges for quick surfy re­lease. The nose has rocker to slip into the curves and rise up in be­tween bumps for longer glides. A sin­gle con­cave keeps the board lively be­tween bumps and it’s a plea­sure to pad­dle when it’s flat.

BLURR V2

An up­dated Blurr de­sign in col­lab­o­ra­tion with 5x World SUP Surf Champ Izzi Gomez. Dave Boehne up­dated the out­line in the back half of the board to add more sta­bil­ity, al­low­ing thin­ner cen­ter thick­ness while main­tain­ing vol­ume. The step rail hides vol­ume in the cen­ter and a much thin­ner per­for­mance rail in the wa­ter. Vee runs the length of the bot­tom with a con­cave vee tran­si­tion in be­tween the stance out through the tail. It’s custom built and mfg in Dana Point, CA in our new Sup­spen­sion­tech car­bon/in­negra blended con­struc­tion, which is very light and pro­motes twist, coil, and spring for un­matched per­for­mance. All of our boards are avail­able to or­der custom to fit your size and vol­ume needs. Email Dave@ in­fin­ity-sup.com

TOMB­STONE

Tomb­stone is a board de­signed for SUP Foil­ing and is also avail­able in lay­down surf­ing mod­els. Spe­cific rails and bot­tom fea­tures pro­mote sta­bil­ity and fast pad­dling. Very for­giv­ing when “touch downs” oc­cur. The bot­tom fea­tures a slight belly to skip and not to stick to the wa­ter. The rocker is de­signed so the an­gle of at­tack with the foil is level with the board. The deck has an an­gled rail for close to the sur­face carves. Con­caved deck in the back to en­cour­age your foot to find the cen­ter line for max sta­bil­ity in the air. High den­sity foam inserts for the fin boxes and a car­bon fiber re­in­forced patch for high im­pact and strong foil ap­pli­ca­tion. Custom builds avail­able now, pro­duc­tion ver­sion Fall 2018.
