Best for Racing
Available sizes: 12'6" and 14'
A collaboration with Australian board-shaper Dale Chapman, the Coco Carbon is our favorite high-end raceboard. Whether we were blasting a straight line on flat water or heading through heavy downwind just offshore, the board never felt jittery. And despite its racing DNA, it's surprisingly stable for paddlers of all levels. [$2,325; surfindustries.com]
