The Firestorm is Corran Addison’s latest creation for avid whitewater SUP paddlers. This board takes river running to a whole new level. There are several key innovations and improvements over the previous designs that make this board really stand out. Firstly, and most significantly, an almost 20% reduction in weight compared to other plastic boards out there.
The Firestorm is also stiffer overall, increasing speed and maneuverability. The smooth gradual rockered bottom is better suited for both boofing drops, and surfing waves, and the removal of the directional channels also reduces catching on rocky slides. The drainage is also 2 or 3 times as fast as the past designs, meaning that delay from landing a drop, to regaining total control is significantly reduced.
