(Newburyport, Mass.) – Speedboard USA and Zurn Yacht Design announce its exclusive partnership to build high-performance stand-up paddleboards (SUP), delivering better hydrodynamics, aesthetics and athletic performance for avid paddlers, cross-trainers and SUP enthusiasts.

 

Zurn Yacht Design, headed by design authority Doug Zurn, has launched more than 150 distinctive power and sailing yachts, resulting in an intense knowledge of water craft rigidity, flex and behavior. Zurn brings advanced computer design tools to allow for state-of-the-art mold fabrication, which translates into accurate and high quality boards.

 

With plans to hit New England retailers in early spring, Speedboard will offer a variety of boards that maximize glide and improve the paddle experience. A 4.2M Elite (14’), 4.2M Elite Lightweight (14’), 4.9M Unlimited Lightweight (16’), and a 6M Unlimited Elite (20’) board are among those presently being planned for release.  

 

 

“Doug Zurn designs beautiful boats with art, tradition, efficiency, and technology at his side,” said Bob Blair, Speedboard founder. “He offers a fresh perspective that we haven’t found in the paddleboard market. Speedboard is confident that this partnership will raise the bar in the product marketplace.”

 

“Because Speedboards are aimed at the performance side, we offer advanced designs that combine space age materials with a unique perspective of the sport and the needs of the athlete,” said Zurn. “Strong, yet agile…light-weight, yet forceful.”

 

Based in Newburyport, Mass., Speedboard began testing its prototypes in July 2009 by entering SUP races throughout the United States. Speedboard paddler Will Rich debuted a Speedboard/Zurn design by winning the 2011 Halloween Narrow River Stand-up Paddleboard Challenge, Men’s Division, in Narragansett, R.I., and the 2011 Thanksgiving Day SUP Race in Gloucester, Mass.
