All Around / Tour Level Speed / All Water Versatility
Blackfish got all new Team Elite Carbon construction which resulted in the lightest and even more durable Blackfish boards we have ever made. We feel it offers the best strength to weight ratio in the market. Infinity is known for our quality and the level has been taken up another notch.
The blackfish is the All-Around king and has influenced an industry with the original Dave Boehne designed hybrid planning hull surf concepts applied to SUP race designs.
This board has showed it's versatility year after year with world titles, gold medals, flatwater sprint wins, flat water distance wins, and many victories in the ocean and surf racing around the globe all under the feet of some of the words best Candice Appleby, Shae Foudy, Itzel Delgado, Tyler Bashor and Kai Lenny. Blackfish is the fastest board off the line, stable in all conditions, and a true one board quiver to conquer anything mother nature throws at you.
Many top board manufacturers have adopted the center channel concept originally developed by Infinity in 2014 and now with input from the team of SpeedFreaks everyone is still playing catch up. This Blackfish is like no other and features a completely re-designed bottom concept which takes the DNA of the Blackfish to the next level.
The bottom is a planning hull hybrid and is able to paddle in all conditions. The stability is built through the outline. The bottom features a rolled hull framing an inverse vee panel that releases cleanly off the lowered centerline vee concave. The planning hull rides on top of the water rather than parting it. This makes for a very fast get up and go higher max sprint speeds. Like skipping a stone Blackfish likes to sprint off the line.
This "flat deck" original version is a true flat style deck with just 1.5" of recess in the deck. This gives you a sure-footed stance and max-width. Flat decks are the preferred style for riders who constantly go in and out of the surf, like to walk and move about the board a lot, and want a no-frills paddling experience.
If you paddle mostly in the ocean or a flatwater area that gets changing seasons and conditions Blackfish is for you and will be ready.
