New Little Tybee Boarder Crosser SUP!

This new paddleboard is the result of a design collaboration between myself and Gary Wilson at Kinetic Surfboards.
Gary wanted a design to set his boards apart and fill a niche, and I've had a specific board design in mind for a while.
This board was directly inspired by my morning trips to Little Tybee. In the past I would often venture over to find some really good surf, only to be hampered by riding it on a raceboard, or finding myself too tired after paddling over on a surf-style SUP. What I really wanted for the job was a board with a displacement nose like a race-board yet with a tail that allowed some great surf performance. This way you can get to some remote surf easily, yet have some fun surfing a performance board while you're there, easily making the return trip.

After kicking around some ideas, this is what we came up with:

Length 11' Width 29.6" Thickness 4.5" priced at only $975 with fins!
You can see the displacement in the nose and tail rocker.
Enough displacement for glide and slicng through the chop, however not too much to hinder surfing performance.
Move well forward on the board to get it to displace the on-coming water for distance. Just step back to make it surf!
Tie-Down inserts on the top for gear/food/water for extended sessions
Nice tail outline and rocker for a good surfy feel off the tail. Pull the side bites out for distance paddling and replace for surfing.
Nice double concave from mid-section to tail for performance wave riding.

Standup Paddle Tybee to Hilton Head Crossing

Tim Malins and Pete Pollak decided to make the crossing to Hilton Head and return.
We left at about 9:30am Thursday November 3rd.
I rode the Naish Glide 17 while Pete opted for the somewhat more stable Naish Glide 12
We left well provisioned with plenty of water and snacks at low tide from Tybee's North Jetty. With a North headwind of about 4-6kts, there was some chop to battle with some waist high rollers in the shipping channel which we crossed after looking both ways.
After clearing the shipping channel, we hit some smoother water and kept a steady pace over 5mph.
We took special care not cross paths in front of shrimp boats.
In just under 2 hours of paddle time, we arrived on the South tip of Hilton Head Island.
After taking a break from some much needed water and snacks to replenish our energy and checking the wind and tide forecasts, we struck out on our return journey back to Tybee.
With the incoming tide and ENE sidewind, the return paddle was a lot more challenging than going. We had constantly keep an ESE course in order stay away from the strong currents around Daufuskie and the Savannah river mouth. However we kept a steady pace and safely made it back to Tybee's North beach.

I wouldn't recommend this trip to anyone who doesn't have a lot of experience with long distance paddleboard trips, and a lot of local knowledge of wind and tidal currents.
To put it into perspective, most elite class paddleboard races are about 6 miles long. This trip is a like doing two of these races back to back in one day, and dealing with the open ocean wind, chop, and currents at the same time. It's an advance paddle excursion to say the least and about the limit of what and experienced paddler can do in one day.
