A fast board for downwind sprints, fitness training or just cruising wind swells!

Surftech's Bark Downwinder Pro Elite SUP was designed by Joe Bark with one thing in mind—chasing and riding those magical downwind runs. This board was built for heavy water conditions with its aggressive, surf-inspired shape and rocker and has become the go-to board for serious paddlers in the Molokai Channel, Hood River and the Gulf Stream. You'll fluidly connect bump after bump, never losing glide and guaranteeing you'll have the run of your life every time you venture out.



Pro Elite boards are made using a proprietary fused-cell foam core, which is incredibly light and durable. Tight bonds are created between the fused cells to create a water-resistant core that can withstand dents and dings. The core is then pressure-molded using high-quality carbon and fiberglass with a PVC reinforced standing area resulting in a light, strong, rigid board.



Wrapped in orange, gray and white racing stripes, the deck features a fully integrated handle and nonslip deck pad. This is one board that looks as fast as it paddles!



When deciding on an SUP, you'll want to choose a board with adequate volume. This can be the difference between gliding smoothly across the surface or spending your time fighting that very real sinking feeling! With a volume of 237 liters, the recommended rider weight limit for the Bark Downwinder Pro Elite is 190 pounds.



The racing shape, narrow beam and 12'6" length of this board provides the lighter weight (only 26 pounds) you need for fast ocean touring whether you're in it to win it or just interested in cruising.


Remember to order an SUP paddle and life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be ready to start your run downwind as soon as possible!
