Finally the Jimmy Lewis Sidewinder allwater race and downwind board is now available. Designed to perform for all levels of paddler in all conditions this will see you crossing oceans and finish lines ahead of the rest.
The Jimmy Lewis Sidewinder has been in development for a year and riders from round the world got involved to feed back to Jimmy what we needed from an ultimate sup race board.
The first thing that we asked at Jimmy was that We needed stability, due to our choppy conditions and a more all round shape so we didn’t expect people to buy 2 boards for flatwater and ocean paddling. Something that we also liked was the Fat Nose concept to help with downwind conditions and bumps in general.
Jimmy has always been great at making boards that have elite performance, but in racing the idea is everyone can get involved so we’ve worked on sizing options that would allow everyone to get involved.
14×29: the board shaped for heavyweight paddlers 110kg+. To paddle at their best.
14×27: the board you want to ride in open ocean conditions.
14×25: the most suitable board for wavy and choppy conditions.
14×23: the most suitable board for flat water or small choppy conditions.
12’6×29: the most suitable board for bigger riders or just casual racing.
12’6×27: the most suitable board to ride if you approach a competition for the very first time. It’s easy while fast, but will also deliver unparalleled stability in rough water.
12’6×25 : the most suitable board for racers looking to find the edge.
The board is 5” thick with a tapered tail and a round sided deck. It is the very board you want to ride to win a competition. Our Kinetic Factory has improved its tecnhologies and the way it makes boards. As a result of this upgrade every Jimmy Lewis 2017 board has a pvc plus carbon tail. The board tail is coremat less. The board it self is still as firm as the 2016 edition but even lighter.
Also the new 2017 graphic is very cool and original with yellow masao or red masao for the 14’0
