2016 Naish Hokua Raptor V116 Le
7' 0" x 31 inches
I am selling my Naish Raptor surf SUP as I now have a foil. It's great on small to medium waves and goes well even on small mushy waves being so wide but compact. I even paddle it on the bay sometimes although it's not ideal for any long distance flat water.
This has the premium 'ultra lightweight' LE construction (I have a PDF copy of the brochure if interested). It has a carbon deck and honeycomb core which you can just about see through the top coat.
It's in good condition but with a few small scrapes - see photos. It even fits inside many cars and lifts (I used to live in a small apartment).
From the Naish brochure:
Performance Wave - compact series designed for maximum speed and responsive turning in small-to-medium surf.
The Hokua Raptors take small wave SUP surfing to the next level. Designed for maximum speed and snappy turns in small, slow waves, the compact 7 ft. long Raptors absolutely tear small-to-medium sized surf to shreds.
The compact outline, slab nose, V-bottom shape, relatively sharp rails and quad fin setup allow for unparalleled acceleration directly from take-off while maintaining speed through turns. Wide entry and release create a large
"sweet spot", letting the rider use a much shorter board then he/she is used to, while also creating surprising "float" and stability for boards of their volume. Fitting nicely into the trough of even the smallest of waves, the short
length enables riders to pump, trim, slash and carve like never before-not to mention the added benefit of fitting inside a normal compact car!
