HORIZON F14 production board #6 almost ready to head out the door of Solent Boat Works (SBW) after being lovingly hand-built! Finished here in Metallic Tangerine (and carbon).
A HORIZON F14 SUP is hand-built by the SBW craftsmen in carbon fibre utilizing the same method as a high performance racing dinghy or yacht applying a technique called vacuum resin infusion. A carbon laminate is infused under vacuum in female moulds creating a hollow board. Internal framing is added for torsional and longitudinal stiffness. Find out more about the construction process here.
Congratulations to Dave Grover who won first place in the 52+ age group of the UK National SUP Series on October 24 in Kingsbridge with his new Farr-designed Horizon F14 paddle board. Grover only took delivery of the board on the Wednesday before the Nationals and is already off to a fantastic winning start.
“This was the first race for a production F14 paddleboard. Grover was happy with the results and the board performance. Overall the board was superb in a fairly challenging race of 12km with a 20 knot crosswind for one of the legs,” he said. More
