The King’s All Carbon Fiber (AC) race boards are proven race winning boards. The King’s AC-Elite racers are super stable yet incredibly fast. This stability allows you to focus on your paddling without sacrificing speed. The stability and speed of this board exceeds that of nearly all other SUP boards—making it the perfect board for all skill levels. We build race boards for those who are absolutely serious about their equipment and winning races.
- Moderately thick bow to prevent nose-diving and balance the the volume.
- V-Fore Deck to shed wind and water.
- Flat bottom with sharp edges along the bottom rails for stability and water release.
- Flat deck for great comfort and stability.
- Wide simi-thick tail to maintain speed during turns and give push down wind.
- Low nose and tail rocker to give tremendous speed and glide.
Why are King’s Boards so much better?
There is no board in the world as fast, strong and light as a King’s race board. King’s race boards have a very slight roll to the bottom of the bow to very gently displace water without causing a large wake. The cockpit is flat and your feet are low to the surface of the water for comfort and stability. The bottom side of the tail allows the water to gently release off the end of the board. to prevent a wake from forming.
King's boards are engineered to perform. They represent a product where hydro-static theory, art, craftsmanship, aesthetics, and testing all come together to create one of the most highly coveted race boards in the world. King's race boards track straight, are highly stable, are easy to paddle, have unequaled glide, are super fast and have a long list of race wins!
Adding to the great design, King's race boards are constructed using ourexclusive carbon fiber vacuum bagging techniques. Vacuum bagging is a technique employed to create mechanical pressure on a laminate during its cure cycle. Pressurizing a composite lamination serves several functions. First, it removes trapped air between layers. Second, vacuum bagging compacts the fiber layers for efficient force transmission among fiber bundles and prevents shifting of fiber orientation during cure. Third, it reduces humidity. Finally, and most important, the vacuum bagging technique optimizes the fiber-to-resin ratio in the composite part. These advantages have for years enabled aerospace and racing industries to maximize the physical properties of advanced composite materials such as Graphite (carbon fiber,) aramid, and epoxy.
