We have upgraded our Carbon Raceboard Fleet with some more boards from Lahui Kai. It is a lesser known brand but the boards are great, they are actually shaped by former Starboard Shaper Brian Symanski, father of the infamous Starboard Ace. On top of our 25″ wide Starboard and Fanatic Raceboards we now also have some wider models in 27.5″ and 29″ if you want something that is fast but still stable. Check out the boards below or send us your size, weight and level of experience for a recommendation.

We have been looking for a while and now found the perfect board that is fast and light, yet stable. A great board for sporty ladies. Annabel Anderson, world’s fastest  female paddler and former Starboard Shaper Brian Symanski have teamed up to make the impossible possible. A board that glides like a raceboard but is almost as stable as one of the big heavy Allround SUPs.

The Lahui Kai Annabel Anderson 3X Carbon 11’6″ Tour stand up paddle board in a Carbon Fiber Touring Board that was designed by Brian Szymanski, Annabel Anderson, and John Becker to come up with a shape that features excellent stability, speed, tracking, control, carrying capacity and comfort in all conditions. No subtle detail was overlooked in deck design and tour configurations. Board features include Lahui Kai 3X Carbon Construction, CONNEX SUP, LIFTSUP handle, and the proprietary SZY-TRE (pronounced SHIZZY-TREY) which is a gear saddle that keeps your essentials securely within arms reach.

Lahui Kai Annabel Anderson Touring SUP for rent on St. John

We unboxed 2 of these along with some more Lahui Kai Carbon Raceboards in 12.6′ and 14′ last week and have taken it out, the board does what is promised. So far we had 3 sporty ladies paddle it right after their first lesson and they all loved it and did not fall in.

It is a great board if you want to go exploring, for example to paddle out to Whisling Cay, Waterlemon or Denis Bay. What about the guys you ask? Give them the SUPUSA 12’x31′ Touring which is a bit wider and slower and you will be able to keep up with them! Or if they want a carbon board too, we now also have more stable raceboards in 12’6×27.5″ (Lahui Kai Race by Brian Symanski)

If you have paddled before and are less than 160lbs, this is the board for you! Taller, heavier riders might prefer the 12’6 or 14′ models. We currently only have 2 of them, so early reservation is recommended!
