ULI's newest race/tour/surf SUP the 12' 6'' x 32'' is now available. We've surfed and paddled our 12' 6'' SUP for over three years now. Our prototype 12' 6''s are the ONLY inflatables to have competed alongside hardboards in the ''Battle of the Paddle'' ''Elite division'' two years in a row. The board is stable and light weight and like all of our boards 70% completed in the USA, by surfers and paddlers, using components and materials also made in the USA. Tri-fin setup.

The tail is pulled in and this helps in turning and late takeoffs. A more durable and heavier model, the GL X-2 is the board that can take the constant abuse of rivers and rocky shores. The deck of the board is covered with an EVA deck grip. Includes hand pump and gauge. Fins; tri-fin-typical thruster set up.
