TANDEM SUP MODELS
"A tandem SUP is the best way to include your wife, kids or buddies into your SUP experience. I made the first tandem SUP for my wife and I about 4 years ago. I was surprised to find that I was much faster on it with her than I was on my own single race board. This is because two or more paddles pulling simultaneously is much more efficient and will propel the same length board faster than one paddle. When I paddle with another guy, our top speed is nearly two miles an hour faster than with just one guy.
We soon found that we could fit me plus two girls on the tandem. This was even more fun and even faster. A tandem can be as short as 16’, but 18’ is a better racer. For serious racing or three people, a 19’ tandem is best."
A tandem is only $150 more than a regular race board of the same length. It’s very affordable and can be paddled with only one person alone.
"The Quadnundrum: by far, the most fun. My 21’ 4 person board, named the USS Quadnundrum is fast and stable. We become an eight armed paddling organism. We call out paddle side changes like an out rigger team. This size board is difficult and expensive to make, but beyond the fun scale. Just think of the race team you can create." - Steve
Steve Boehne and Infinity SUP are the first to make, design, and manufacture these multi-person SUP's in the world.
InfinitySUP broke new ground and is credited with being the first to race a multi-person team in an elite race ever. In 2011 elite racers Slater Trout, Dave Boehne, and Chance Fielder raced the "Quadnundrum" to a 2nd Place behind Danny Ching in the Battle of the Paddle distance race. They were awarded the Rainbow Sandals "Most Inspirational" Award. Contact Steve@infinitysurf.com for more information and prices on tandem SUP boards.
