9' x 28.0" x 4.0"
The Siren Rocket Quad SUP standup paddle board was designed for stand up paddling in waves from 1'-8'. Imagine standup paddleboards that perform like a short surfboard. Everything about this board is progressive and novel, defying the tendency for SUPs to be bloated and sluggish. Fine, sleek rails gradually transition from soft and tucked forward of center for forgiveness, to hard, edgey and down in the tail for a swift, agile response through hard turns. A single concave through the mid section of the bottom gives the board a flatter effective rocker profile through the center of the board to facilitate paddling and to provide lift while surfing in smaller waves. In order to help the board get on rail fast, the single concave transitions to Vee just before the front fins. Nose rocker is subtley kicked to resist catching on steep drops. Like all Siren SUPs, the Rocket Quad dispenses with the dampening effect of an inherently inconsistent wood stringer and builds the saved weight into the shell, which allows us to reliably tailor the flex pattern of the board to performance specs.
In order to eliminate "yaw" while stand up paddling, we have employed a double-wing diamond tail configuration in order to keep the outline as parallel as possible.
This has the added benefit of making the board very snappy--quick directional changes are easily initiated. The quad fin set up puts more fin area out near the rail, ensuring that the board will not spin out.
The 9'0 x 28.0 x 4.0 version is ideal for standup paddlers in the 125-180# range. Lighter or more experienced paddlers should send us an email for information on customizing a board with less volume (be sure to have a look at our 7'4 version to get an idea what's possible).
