The Explore series is designed for a quiet, smooth and stable paddling experience cruising around your local lake, bay or river yet is fully capable and proven as a serious expedition worthy board in all types of conditions.A sharp vee entry at the nose parts the water smoothly and transitions to a displacement hull through the front half of the board for maximum responsiveness and maneuverability. This transitions to a flat planing hull in the back half of the board for stability and tracking.Available in two sizes to accommodate riders from 80 to 260lbs.
The Glide series, featuring our authentic bamboo construction, looks as good as the designs performs. Excellent glide and stability combine to deliver smooth performance for touring your local waterway or setting out on more exciting day trips or multi-day expeditions.Available in two widths in the 12’6 size (27” & 29”) as well as a 14’ x 28” version for longer excursions.
Ideal as a dependable ‘one-board quiver’ with the speed you need to perform at your peak combined with the stability required to stay upright and focused on the task at hand. Featuring full carbon construction for lightweight, rigidity and maximum speed, the Racer series are competition-level boards that excel in flatwater, open ocean, beach and downwind race conditions. A full nose outline with lowered profile is ideal for penetrating chop in rough conditions as well as reducing cross-wind interference. The wide cockpit standing area allows for full use of the deck area and provides a ‘corrugated’ design for added rigidity and durability. Rail edges in the rear of the board are slightly rounded and combined with a relaxed tail rocker for minimal drag. Available in both 12’6 and 14’ lengths.
The Peak series of surf-specific paddleboards are the result of years of testing and refining to find the ideal blend of outline, rocker profile, volume distribution, bottom contour, fin placement and foil. The result is an all-conditions design with the stability needed to make paddling enjoyable without losing true wave performance.With the speed you need on softer open-face waves and the looseness required in steeper, tighter pockets, the Peak series delivers on the promise of maximum fun regardless of the size or shape of the waves you ride. Featuring light weight carbon innegra construction and available in four sizes for riders of all sizes and skill levels.
The Peak Wide series offers a more user-friendly and stable platform while maintaining the surf performance our Peak series is known for. Instead of simply adding volume and width, which can result in a stable yet unresponsive board, we custom tailored the foil and rocker outline to match the wider templates of these models. This allows the board to still hold rail even in tighter pocket waves and still maintain speed and maneuverability on the open face.
Oxbow AIR inflatable paddleboards feature ultra-light, durable and extremely rigid construction for performance typically found only in rigid boards. By adding a non-stretch stringer along the top and bottom center line together with double layer rail construction we’ve reduced weight, dramatically increased rigidity and improved ease of re-rolling and packing the board after use. The AIR models inflate to a rigid 15psi and come with an oversize wheeled backpack for ease of transport and storage, rugged two-way pump with gauge, packing straps, removable center fin with easy on/off thumb screw, repair kit and valve wrench.
