PAPENOO PRO Carbon series

The PAPENOO models can be classified as “short SUP” with a focus on speed, acceleration and maneuverability to rip off smaller waves like never before!

The initial target was to design a board as short as possible to gain in maneuverability and agility. A rectangular outline proved the right solution to keep enough hull area and volume for stability. We have also worked with a lot of attention on the glide of these boards. The shape of PAPENOO features a genuine planning hull which is both efficient and enjoyable to ride.

Technical Specifications

With its rectangular outline, we have been able to keep enough volume while maintaining a reasonable width. It’s uselessto make very wide boards which wouldn’t have the ability to take on speed.
For a given width the PAPENOO are slightly longer than most of the similar type boards and this was made to ensure a good paddling speed and a super easy take off. The rocker line is tailored for this short shape which resulted in straighter lines to get the speed while maneuverability is provided by the reduced length.
Board thickness remains quite standard to keep some good control. The specificity of this shape comes from its hull which features a deep single concave running from the front third of the board all the way to the tail, with a flat on each side. These lateral flats are tilted into a V shape at the front of the board to soften the entry into the curves. The wide tail has pushed for a Quattro fin setup to keep the fins on each side of the single concave and close to the rails.

Thanks to this new, short outline, you can select a board which is ½ foot shorter than your usual length and still have a board which is impressively stable. You can even drop the width by 1 inch from your usual standard to get a more lively board. At the take off, you’ll be surprised by its ability to catch very small waves. The PAPENOO is made for waves between 0.40 and 1.50 m.
This original shape then needs to be driven correctly: the board quickly takes on speed providing a distinctive feeling of gliding over the water. Once at speed, the board can be surfed softly, as if it was sitting on an air cushion, and will perform any maneuvers without requiring brutal inputs from the rider. Supple steering is more appropriate than forcing the rails into the water.

Very surprising by its maneuverability and its planning sensations, this board is a real booster for your surf.
The testimonials are clear: anyone who has tried it has improved his surfing level.

The PRO CARBON construction is built from layers of glass, bamboo and some bi-axial carbon fabrics. The bottom features an HD foam sandwich with glass layers and some bi-axial carbon fabrics. The brushed carbon finish ensures the weight remains minimal. This construction brings an impressive resistance combined with absolute light weight. These boards feature an amazing strength to weight ratio and remain amongst the highest performing and lightest boards on the market.



    Using a layer of bamboo only on the deck, this construction has been optimized to guarantee the board is as light as possible, all while ensuring strength and durability as well.

  • BAMBOO Sandwich technology

    Our SUP boards benefit from the BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY construction. Every layer of bamboo is sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass or between a layer of carbon. This allows the sandwich technology to emphasize the characteristics of the bamboo. The final result is a light structure that is super strong and extremely reliable.


    On the deck, the board is built using a full layer of carbon fiber over which is laid the bamboo sheet.
    Then a final layer of fiberglass is laminated on top, which ensures extreme durability and an amazing light weight.
