The 12’6” TR series has been our most popular board for several seasons, and for good reason. 12’6” is a great size for most adults, giving them enough extra waterline to feel the increased speed and glide that the TR designs offer. For 2015 we have two completely new shapes, one at 27” wide, and one at 29” wide. Each is designed for a certain paddler size and skill range. John has implemented a new underwater shape in the nose area. The deep sharp Vee has been replaced by a fuller, more rounded cross-section. This helps send more water under the board to initiate planing, as opposed to out to the sides or up in the air and onto the deck. The raised foredeck sheds water, and the slightly recessed cockpit keeps your center of gravity low, while making for a comfortable standing area. The boards feature our large easy-carry handle and deck inserts for stowing a life-jacket or bag.
The 12’6” TR-29 represents the third generation of the original TR, and maintains many of the same basic dimensions as the 2014 model. At 29 inches wide and 237 liters, it offers enough stability to be comfortable in rough water, and enough float to fit the medium to larger paddler. It is suitable as your first board, yet has enough performance to keep you excited about pushing farther ahead each day on the water. It is built in our Rhino-Lite technology, which is the best combination of weight, durability, and value on the water.
