Rogue All In

Price: $2,699 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Advanced Use: Race
Weight: 24.12 lbs Sizes: 11', 12'6", 14'

About the board: The Rogue All In is a great all around board for racing, downwinders and perhaps even catch a few waves with. It’s not going to be your flatwater-specific board but is something that is highly versatile that you can take out in a variety of conditions and elements. The board has a bit more of a rocker than a regular 14’ board and can definitely handle the chop when it needs to. The bottom is a bit more rolled which should help you go through the bumps more easily. The board is incredibly lightweight and doesn’t sacrifice too much on durability. If you’re looking for an advanced racing board that you can throw in the surf sometimes and still use for touring, check out the All In. Read more HERE.

NSP Carolina

Price: $2,899 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Advanced Use: Race
Weight: 26.11 lbs Sizes: 14'

About the board:The NSP Carolina is designed and inspired by the infamous Carolina Cup race held every April in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. That being said, the design takes into mind all the conditions that you would experience in the Carolina Cup (downwind, flatwater, surf) and morphs it all into one craft. The well of the board on the deck keeps your legs and feet from getting dragged or pulled back from the bumps that wash over the deck and in the well there are drains for the water that does get in the well. The board has plenty of mounting points that can be used for cameras, GPS or other devices. As expected, the board is quite unstable but very fast as it’s designed for speed. So, if you’re looking for a race board that does well in all conditions that goes fast, this is an awesome choice. Read more HERE.
