The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Outer Reef Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)
draws from the advanced hydrodynamic design features of the original
Loose Leaf and Long Grain models applied to a more accessible and
affordable range equally suited to flat-water and the surf.
Built in a very strong and versatile construction, the Outer Reef SUP
offers additional volume all round, and sizes to cover the discerning
recreational SUP paddler in the beginner-to-intermediate class.
Born from a focus on speed and paddle power to ride the outer reefs of
Oahu’s North Shore with ease. The complex, but highly effective bottom
contours that feature across TCPS SUP’s have been softened on the Outer
Reef to provide efficient water flow over a large surface area, and
offer high volume stability without sacrificing flow or paddle
CONTOURS: The deep double concave displacement hull
allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose
while also reducing slapping. Subtle concave through the centre leads
into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail which provides ample turning
capabilities and prevents rail-to-rail sticking, especially in uneven,
choppy conditions and when driving through unpredictable wave zones. A
slight bevel on the underside of the rail enhances trim sensitivity on
the wave face.
ROCKER: A more relaxed rocker on the Outer Reef
offers exceptional flow on flat-water and entry speed onto waves, while
still encouraging smooth turning arcs from the sweet spot position. The
rocker has also been designed to allow freedom of movement from the back
turning zone right up to the nose.
FINS: 2 + 1 set up comes with
FCS II GL side bites which add maneuverability and control when riding
waves, and a custom 9″ TCPS single fin that’s big enough to offer an
efficient flat-water stroke rate, while still allowing for easy turning.
Tom prefers to set the centre fin forward in the box to keep the tail
free and loose.
PERFORMANCE: Available in 4 sizes, the TCPS Outer
Reef utilizes technical design elements to increase flat-water paddling
speed and enhance wave riding response. Fast, stable, yet sensitive to
the rider, the Outer Reef SUP is considered a user-friendly model that
offers a positive and connected feel to the ocean, be it on the open
water or sliding down the face of a wave.
