Plumeria inspiration Wave SUP for Barb

In Australia we call Plumeria’s – Frangipani. It is one of my favorite flowers! They posess a subtle, yet fresh and uplifting scent… reminiscent of springtime. The colours of my board were inspired by this flower with its’ transition of bright to pastel hues.

This is the second Wave Sup which Bill Foote has designed for me since I began the sport around 2 years ago. My previous wave SUP measured 9’3″ x 31″ x 4 1/4″ … with this one coming in at 9’1″ x 29 1/4″ x 4″. It is the perfect step up for me, and I am feeling my skills improving to match the increased performance of the board within just a couple of rides. Mahalo Bill

Maliko 14′ – Series 1 – Jeremy Riggs

 

Cont’d from Intro..

Bill Foote… “In the beginning after doing Maliko runs on 12′ surfboards with surfboard rockers.. I realized that these boards didn’t have the volume, rocker, or bottom design to suit downwind conditions.. and they were far too heavy. These boards weren’t able to get on a plane!
