2019 Loco 14′ Motion Race Board SUP Range
After much anticipation the 2019 Loco 14′ Motion Race Board SUP Range is finally here! Designed by Team GB race kayak shaper and owner of VE paddles Stu Morris and in collaboration with Loco this board is a serious contender whether you’re looking to eat up the miles for fitness or want to compete at the highest level. For those of you who follow our social media you’ll have seen the prototype Loco boss Joe made in his garage at the start of 2018 which we’ve been thoroughly testing throughout the year. We’ve conducted our own tests against the best offerings from many of the big race players and we stoked to report the Motion has got the edge not only on the flat but also in more challenging environments.
The board currently only comes in 14′ with a choice of widths at 22 / 24 / 26 and we’re offering it in glass and carbon to cater for all budgets. The Motion certainly stands out on the water and combines the best of elements of glide, acceleration and stability without being excessively wide! Even heavier guys looking for touring option will be amazed at how planted the 26″ feels, some might mistake it for a 28″ or even 30″!
