    The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Long Grain V2 stand up paddle board (SUP) is inspired by TC’s love of classic longboard style surf SUPing. This popular model received some minor design modifications, making this popular SUP a true leader within this style of riding.

    OVERVIEW: A shift in volume placement, bottom curves, and a broader nose outline offers more effective riding from tip trimming to tail stall turns and pivoting. All the while adding stronger lightweight construction methods.

    DESIGN: The wide point has been brought forward creating a broader nose and narrower water exit zone, especially at 12″ – 24″ up from tail. Longer more parallel rail line improves trimming from nose to just beyond halfway, where turning curves begin flowing into a clean round tail offering easy opportunity for change in direction.

    CONTOURS: We maintain the original chine rail and displacement bottom contours, with some very subtle adjustments to the concave depths in the entry and through the relaxed central paddle zone to offer less resistance under paddle power. Slight increase in tail rocker offers swift access to tighter curves in the pocket of the wave. This combination of bottom contours allows water to travel easily under the large surface area while reducing slapping and sticking.

    ROCKER: Lower entry rocker and increased tail rocker both creates simpler glide into unbroken waves, then once we step back its easier to engage tighter turns off the tail area.

    PERFORMANCE: We bring three sizes into the Long Grain V2 range via co-designer Blane Chambers’ inspired marriage of chine rail and hydrodynamic hull. This effectively reduces rail volume for ease of engagement when moving from rail to rail, while delivering an underlying feeling of manageable sensitivity. Now working with the lighter, more responsive and durable Carbon Fusion (CX) Construction offers the rider stable paddle glide, controlled wave trim from nose to mid-section, with tighter changes of direction from the tail.

    FIN RECOMMENDATONS: FCS II 8″ or 9″ Whip centre fin with FCS II TC SUP Quad rears as side bites. (Centre fin size synced with your own body size, I’m 70kgs – 150lbs and love the 8″ Whip)

    The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Loose Leaf V2 stand up paddleboard (SUP) sits within our range for the paddle surfer looking for uninterrupted glide and speed, without compromising manoeuvrability within a more compact design.

    OVERVIEW: Loose Leaf V2 is a strenuously researched upgrade to it’s predecessor, offering subtle shifts in volume placement, bottom curves and outline while adding stronger lightweight construction methods.

    DESIGN: The wide point has been brought incrementally forward creating a broader nose and narrower tail plan shape, especially at 12″ – 24″ up from the tail. This coupled with a classic forward foil thickness enables increased stability around the relaxed central paddle zone, then step back to manoeuvre with direct response over the deep double concave vee bottom, and a narrower tail.

    CONTOURS: We maintain the original chine rail and displacement bottom contours, with some very subtle adjustments to the concave depths to offer a touch more displacement and better control when transitioning between turns. This combination of bottom curves allows water to travel easily under the large surface area while reducing slapping and sticking.<p>

    ROCKER: Lower entry rocker and increased tail rocker both creates simpler glide into unbroken waves, then once we step back its easier to engage tighter turns off the tail area.<p>

    PERFORMANCE: We bring four sizes into the Loose Lleaf V2 range via co-designer Blane Chambers’ inspired marriage of chine rail and hydrodynamic hull. This effectively reduces rail volume for ease of engagement when moving from rail to rail, while delivering an underlying feeling of manageable sensitivity. Now working with the lighter, more responsive and durable Carbon Fusion (CX) Construction offers the rider stable paddle glide, controlled wave trim from nose to mid-section, with tighter changes of direction from the tail.

    FIN RECOMMENDATIONS: FCS II Tom Carroll SUP Quad for larger open face waves. FCS II 6″ LB Connect PG FCS II TC SUP Quad rears as side bites (2 1) for conditions demanding fast pivot turns. I like to ride with the centre fin as far forward as possible.

    The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Outer Reef X2 Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) draws from the advanced hydrodynamic design features of the original Loose Leaf and Long Grain models applied to a more accessible and affordable range equally suited to flat-water and the surf.

    OVERVIEW: Built in a very strong and versatile construction, the Outer Reef SUP offers additional volume all round, and sizes to cover the discerning recreational SUP paddler in the beginner-to-intermediate class.

    DESIGN: Born from a focus on speed and paddle power to ride the outer reefs of Oahu’s North Shore with ease. The complex, but highly effective bottom contours that feature across TCPS SUP’s have been softened on the Outer Reef to provide efficient water flow over a large surface area, and offer high volume stability without sacrificing flow or paddle efficiency.

    CONTOURS: The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose while also reducing slapping. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail which provides ample turning capabilities and prevents rail-to-rail sticking, especially in uneven, choppy conditions and when driving through unpredictable wave zones. A slight bevel on the underside of the rail enhances trim sensitivity on the wave face.

    ROCKER: A more relaxed rocker on the Outer Reef offers exceptional flow on flat-water and entry speed onto waves, while still encouraging smooth turning arcs from the sweet spot position. The rocker has also been designed to allow freedom of movement from the back turning zone right up to the nose.

    FINS: 2 1 set up comes with FCS II GL side bites which add maneuverability and control when riding waves, and a custom 9″ TCPS single fin that’s big enough to offer an efficient flat-water stroke rate, while still allowing for easy turning. Tom prefers to set the centre fin forward in the box to keep the tail free and loose.

    PERFORMANCE: Available in 4 sizes, the TCPS Outer Reef utilizes technical design elements to increase flat-water paddling speed and enhance wave riding response. Fast, stable, yet sensitive to the rider, the Outer Reef SUP is considered a user-friendly model that offers a positive and connected feel to the ocean, be it on the open water or sliding down the face of a wave.

    APPROX BOARD WEIGHTS: 10’0: 11.5kg/25.3lbs | 10’6: 12.53kg / 27.6lbs | 11’0: 13.77kg/30.3lbs | 11’6: 14.2kg/31.3lbs.
