The 12'6" TR series has been Amundson's most popular board for several seasons, and for good reason. 12'6" is a great size for most adults, giving them enough extra waterline to feel the increased speed and glide that the TR designs offer. A deep sharp V in the underwater nose area has been replaced by a fuller, more rounded cross-section which helps send more water under the board to initiate planing, as opposed to the sides or up in the air and onto the deck. The raised foredeck sheds water, and the slightly recessed cockpit keeps your center of gravity low, while making for a comfortable standing area. The boards also feature a large easy-carry handle and deck inserts for stowing a life-jacket or bag. The 12'6" TR-27 is a narrower version of the TR-29. At 27" wide and 217 liters, it is sized to fit lighter paddlers who don't need the extra width for stability. The narrow width of the TR-27 also makes it slightly faster for any size advanced riders heading out on the race course. It is built with Rhino-Lite technology, which is the best combination of weight, durability, and value on the water. Paddleboard weighs 30 lbs. 217-liter volume. For novice riders up to 190 lbs. For advanced riders up to 230 lbs. 12'6" x 27" x 6.1".
Rhino-Lite technology starts with a molded core of watertight fused-cell foam. The core is wrapped with fiberglass cloth with extra material on the rails and a thin veneer of wood on the deck to prevent heel dents. The board is placed in a heated vacuum mold with expanding epoxy resin. The heat and expanding pressure ensure the resin completely laminates the skin to the core, creating a light and tough board that is resistant to dings and delamination. Amundson's Rhino-Lite technology is the best combination of weight, durability, and value on the market.
