2017 Loco Aztec Short SUP Paddle Board
The Aztec has been a shape Joe has had in his mind for about 18 months taking inspiration largely from some parabolic railed boards coming out of Spain which went on to become Firewire’s new Cornice surfboard. The concept comes from other sliding sports such as snowboarding with the idea being that the concave rail actually optimises grip through the turns. Now fuse that with a short, stubby, relatively flat-rockered SUP with an MPH style hull channel and you have a radical compact SUP perfect for throwing around in small to medium sized surf. These boards are set to delight progressive riders all over the world with their show stopper aesthetic taking its influences from the statues on Easter Island. As with all our progression boards the Aztec comes with 5 fin boxes as standard and is available in bamboo/epoxy with carbon rails or our featherweight carbon/PVC mix construction for the aficionados. Riders will be surprised just how small they can go with these boards! The wide tails mean that the Aztecs defy what was thought possible. Say goodbye to the roof rack these game changers will fit in a small hatchback and will have you grinning ear to ear from your very first session! They’re selling out quicker than we can get them in so pre-ordering is advised to avoid disappointment.
‘So glad I tried the Aztec after being left largely cold by the Hypernut and Slate. Finally a door shape that turns how you want it to in waves above 3′. Well done to Loco and great to find out it’s been developed here in the UK’

‘Just taken my 8’7” Aztec out for the first time. It’s certainly a step up from the 10’5” Drive I’d been using for the last couple of seasons. Race car fast and boy does it turn! Hard to believe it packs 150L. Really impressed thanks Joe!’
