2) With SUP being my second sport, I would be more competitive first if i just paddled more than I do. No board size is going to make up for the fact that I only paddle 4 hours a week and even then its typically as a rest day from my cycling.

Problem solved for Bryce. Also come in a hollow construction with checker stripe.

And she is not smiling, everybody paddling should be smiling. She looks like she is having colic.

Have not tried it yet but knowing Norm, I am sure that it is a board made for that and he commented as much.

I would not mind a performance/fast light touring board. A kind of Glide Light or Javelin de-tuned. Pretty much a SIC RS with a tad less volume but without the race moniker to it, so it becomes available on the second hand market :-)
And that is something that could work well with the hollow construction of Nelo. They just have to go wider and make some nicer, cleaner lines. Simple is best.

The JL Sidewinder 14 x 27 has a bit less volume than the SIC RS 14 x 26 and would be very close to the same weight in the more durable signature construction. Just no used ones popping up in BC yet. The Sunova Allwater 14 x 27 may be a bit more volume than what you would want. I noticed Sunova has a new touring/expedition board in multiple widths that Norm Hann helped develop. The 14 x 28.5 would probably be a fairly quick touring board but is higher volume.

I was paddling with Norm this morning and he mentioned that he really like the touring board even in 28.5. the nose profile is less deep than their other board, which I like.
There is also some talk for the AllAround (orange nose, flat deck) to lower the deck so the thing doe snot feel like a bloody cork. I wanted to try the touring board in 27" but the weight has been stopping me. This year it look slike the weight is considerable down so....

I’m sorry to see Naish winding down their commitment to SUP racing.

As long as they keep their commitment to serious paddlers and keep a line of performance hard boards like the Maliko with a good construction and an affordable price.
Now if they go to inflatable only then....

On the Dead Sea there is zero room for errors,
a fall will be very painful.

Nobody falls on a Nero board.....

I guess somebody is starting a new life....
No paint, no hair, new board and weird paddle (it looks painful) :-)

On the Dead Sea, board skimmed over the water and did not even got wet :-)

Yes, saw that. I think he's on this thread :)

Sorry for the repeat then, they just released it a few hours ago on YouTube so I assumed it was new. Not that there is anything we don't already know in it anyway.

Looks like we were in advance of the press :-):

Well Bruno won his first race on the board (in Israel). Soft opposition for him but at least he’s come out swinging.

The board is very light so he has no problem swinging it around I am sure...

Many people actually went with the RS just because of versatility.
For those slow to moderate days when you really want to maximize fun factor, I don't think anything surpasses the Bayonet.

Do you mean because the RS would cover flat and light conditions very well and the V2 would cover medium and higher? So people have bypassed the Bayonet?
We have so many days that do not deliver as expected and stuck with lower than expected wind but residual big messy cross chop. I am not sure that the Bayonet would still fare as good in these messy conditions when a good balance become part of the equation.

i.e.
quiver #1
RS
Bayonet
Bullet V1

quiver #2
RS
Bullet V2

but nobody is really considering RS and Bayonet only or Bayonet and Bullet 2 only

Yum!

More critical characteristics would be e.g. ease of bump-catching.

And you can say that again, and over again, and then one more time just to be sure :-)
