Now Includes Free Board Bag!
NEW VACUUM CARBON CONSTRUCTION!
The JohnO SUP is built with a high density EPS core that is CNC machined and hand finished. The finished blank is then fitted with a shock absorbing/load spreading high density PVC foam plate with Future Fin boxes, this assures a very strong connection between your board and foil. The JohnO SUP is laminated with a high quality carbon fiber with a layer of Kevlar tape between carbon on the rails and then cured under vacuum pressure. What this means, excess epoxy is removed for lightness and carbon is compressed together for a high degree of stiffness. The board is finished with high quality polyurethane paint. Not only does this construction look beautiful, it is light and stiff for ultimate performance.
Introducing the JohnO SUP! The JohnO SUP is one of the most versatile foil SUP designs is the industry with a rider skill level range from beginner to advanced. The soft rectangular outline is very stable and tracks extremely well when paddling. The softer corners in the nose are very forgiving in turns, it does not stick compared to the more squared off noses. The JohnO features a kick tail with a step. With a push on the back foot, this tail kick design allows the rider to “kick start” from the water to the sky. The tail kick also gives the rider more clearance between the tail and the sloping wave. The step creates a water release, sheeting off the step as opposed to wrapping around a bevel. The amazing thing about this board is that most riders can learn on the JohnO SUP and grow into the highest levels of their riding abilities.

Beveled Rail: The bevel rail design gives more clearance between the rail and water when laying over into turns. This rail design also helps recover and rebound after touching down in a hard turn.
