The next generation of Tom Carroll surf SUPs have landed! New look, new construction, new sizes: the Long Grain V2 offers performance longboard style wave riding and is inspired by TC’s love of classic longboard style surf SUPing. No other surf SUPs have curves like the Tom Carroll range, these boards are fast and responsive, catching everything you paddle for.

OVERVIEW: A shift in volume placement, bottom curves, and a broader nose outline offers more effective riding from tip trimming to tail stall turns and pivoting. All the while adding stronger lightweight construction methods.

DESIGN: The wide point has been brought forward creating a broader nose and narrower water exit zone, especially at 12″ – 24″ up from tail. Longer more parallel rail line improves trimming from nose to just beyond halfway, where turning curves begin flowing into a clean round tail offering easy opportunity for change in direction.

CONTOURS: We maintain the original chine rail and displacement bottom contours, with some very subtle adjustments to the concave depths in the entry and through the relaxed central paddle zone to offer less resistance under paddle power. Slight increase in tail rocker offers swift access to tighter curves in the pocket of the wave. This combination of bottom contours allows water to travel easily under the large surface area while reducing slapping and sticking.

ROCKER: Lower entry rocker and increased tail rocker both creates simpler glide into unbroken waves, then once we step back its easier to engage tighter turns off the tail area.

PERFORMANCE: We bring three sizes into the Long Grain V2 range via co-designer Blane Chambers’ inspired marriage of chine rail and hydrodynamic hull. This effectively reduces rail volume for ease of engagement when moving from rail to rail, while delivering an underlying feeling of manageable sensitivity. Now working with the lighter, more responsive and durable Carbon Fusion (CX) Construction offers the rider stable paddle glide, controlled wave trim from nose to mid-section, with tighter changes of direction from the tail.

FIN RECOMMENDATONS: FCS II 8″ or 9″ Whip centre fin with FCS II TC SUP Quad rears as side bites. (Centre fin size synced with your own body size, TC is 70kgs – 150lbs and love the 8″ Whip)

Technology

CX Constuction

Carbon Fusion (CX) is a multi-layer sandwich construction that’s formed through the use of several vacuum bag processes. The goal of this construction is to build a light-weight, strong and performance orientated board. Consisting of two layers of carbon, multiple layers of fibreglass and unidirectional carbon tape applied to a medium density EPS core, the vacuum bagging process is done after each layer is applied to ensure the maximum bond is formed, without an excess use of epoxy resin. This process produces a superb product that will more than meet the requirements of paddlers who want to push their performance.
