The 10'6 Gerry Lopez Big Darling SUP is best suited for people 130-250 lbs.
Gerry Lopez is best know as Mr. Pipeline for pioneering one of the most challenging waves in the world with style. When he stepped into the SUP market, he decided to team up with Surftech because of their super high quality Tuflite construction. What Gerry created with his line of stand ups was one of the most well thought out and best surfing line of SUPs on the market.
The Gerry Lopez Big Darling is a new SUP shape catered to the all around market with an critical eye on performance surfing. This board has the width and volume for great stability, plus the performance characteristics to not disappoint in the waves. This popular SUP category has some great boards in it, but we think the Lopez Big Darling will be a leader for 2011 due to Gerry’s history of making great waveboards.
The Big Darling 10'6 is really stable for the size, but it does not sacrifice glide or surfing performance. This SUP has enough nose rocker for surfing waves of any size or any style. Steep drops are not a problem. There is a double concave that comes off the tail to make this board rip turns. The best thing about the Big Darling is that a novice paddleboarder can enjoy this board as much as a the most advanced.
The Lopez Big Darling is set up as a 4 + 1 fin set up, and it comes with a high quality set of Futures Gerry Lopez 4 + 1 fins. DON'T USE ALL 5 FINS! For small mushy surf ride it quad for fast snappy turning. Ride it 2 + 1 for more drive on bigger waves on long point breaks.
