SHAPER JOHN AMUNDSON: All our boards use a molded EPS blank, which is laminated with fiberglass and epoxy resin, with a natural wood veneer on the deck’s standing area. We produce them in a high-temperature, high-pressure closed mold, which ensures thorough lamination and the best resin-to-glass ratio for durable and light boards. We also offer the 12’6″ TR-X which is the same shape, but with a full-carbon bottom, saving about 4 pounds.

NOSE: This nose is designed to be a good all-around nose design that works well downwind, upwind, and in flatwater. I gave it a bit of nose rocker for the downwind performance, and a medium, split displacement in the tip for improved flatwater and upwind paddling.

RAILS: The nose has a split-V bottom which comes up to the deck and blends to a square rail in the midpoint and tail. The bottom rail line from the midpoint back features a sharp edge, which gives the design very effective glide and speed.

BOTTOM: The bottom features a split displacement nose, into a slight V to the midpoint, and flat from midpoint through tail. These design characteristics give the 12’6” TR great all-around performance with incredible stability.

TAIL The tail is designed with a wide tail block for great stability. It also features a vertical tail block which helps catch swells while paddling downwinders. ROCKER: The nose has a medium rocker with a fairly flat rocker through the mid and tail of the board. The rocker is designed for maximum stability and great glide. DECK: The deck is flat in the standing area with rolled V in the nose and tail. FIN BOX: Single U.S. box. We designed our fin to have good forward drive, but it is also easy to redirect or turn around.
