TOM CARROLL PADDLE SURF LONG GRAIN V2 – CX
The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf Long Grain V2 stand up paddle board is inspired by TC’s love of classic longboard style surfing. This model received some minor design modifications, making this SUP a true leader within this style of riding.
Length:10’0, 10’4, 11’0
The wide point of this board has been brought forward creating a broader nose and narrower water exit zone. Longer more parallel rails improve the trimming and the turning curves begin flowing into a clean round tail offering an easy opportunity for change in direction.
We maintain the original rail and displacement bottom contours, with some subtle adjustments to the concave in the entry and through to the paddle zone to offer greater paddle power. A slight increase in tail rocker offers access to tighter curves in the pocket of the wave.
Lower entry rocker and increased tail rocker both creates glide into unbroken waves and once you step back its easier to make tighter turns off the tail.
There are three sizes of the Long Grain V2 range via co-designer Blane Chambers’ inspired marriage of chine rail and hydrodynamic hull. This reduces rail volume for ease of engagement when moving from rail to rail, delivering an underlying feeling of manageable sensitivity. The lighter, more responsive and durable Carbon Fusion (CX) Construction offers the rider a more stable paddle glide, controlled wave trim and tighter changes of direction from the tail.
FIN RECOMMENDATIONS: FCS II 8″ or 9″ Whip center 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)
