I am selling my qb uv 88, I won this paddle at a race in 2019. Its been used about a total of three times, the length is about 76 3/4. Im in so cal area. Brand new this retails for 499. I am selling it for 375, it is virtually brand new. I don't use this because I love my Hippo stick and just don't have any use for it.

Infinity's are solid I have three myself. Im spoiled because they're right down the road from me which is scary. You are officially a speed freak ;)

Torn intercostal muscle. It's one of the most common SUP injuries. Recessed foot wells (dug out race boards) are the worst for this type of injury. It's happen to me a number of times. It will heal, but you got to give it two or three weeks. Hurts like hell to paddle. As far as the Blackfish feeling more stable is because it has more rocker than the SIC. Rocker adds stability, but slows the board down. The Whiplash is would be closer to the SIC RS rocker wise than the Blackfish.

Yup hurts like HELL.......bummed I'm missing paddling class for at least a weak!

So I finally got to demo the 14x24.5 blackfish, not the dug out but a flat deck. I was able to demo a 14x24 SIC RS, a 14x24.5 SIC RS and the BF. Both of the SIC felt very tippy side to side, I am sure there is a learning curve when going from a 27 to a narrower board but when I jumped on the Black Fish it felt pretty darn stable from the get go. I really like the traction pad Infinity uses compared to the FCS one the SIC. I paddle in the harbor under slightly windy conditions with boat traffic and many other paddlers and I felt very comfortable on the BF. I did like the how the flat deck on the SIC is a little more deeper. Both boards seem to paddle almost the same as far as glide, but all in all I personally liked the Infinity BF better. When I was on the 24 SIC not sure what happened but I fell and hit my ribs really hard, now it hurts like hell when I paddle, I was just standing there and BAM!! Maybe it was a momentum thing or maybe it was the girl in the thong paddling by me ;) The best thing is that Infinity has all the boards to demo and they don't charge me because Im part of a paddling group that is at our local beach. Would like to try the whiplash and the bf dugout soon.

Yes exactly what I am thinking about TallDude the only problem is the BF is such a good all around board to where the Whip is only geared to flat, going to demo a whip as well.

Anything Infinity :)

Get to demo this on sunday, 14x24.5 blackfish dugout, should be interesting since I've only been paddling about a year and im on a 14x27 blackfish now. I feel my balance and skill has improved enough to go narrower, but still gonna keep my 27 inch for open ocean......We shalll see!

Good job. That's a great idea PP has there. I used to train hard for and up coming race. That was my motivation. It's hard to train to just train. You need that carrot on the stick. There used to be races almost every weekend. Even mid week sprint races with beers after. Now there are maybe 3 races in a year in SoCal? I'm glad to see the SUP racing stoke continuing.
I just looked at Paddle Guru and there are no SUP races scheduled in SoCal for the rest of the year. Kinda Crazy..

Yeah its definitely the sign of the times with covid. The training at Performance Padding is amazing, we do some awesome drills, its literally my gym on the water. I try to attend three days a week and I feel like I just got my butt kicked some nights. We are going to be working on sprints here soon, starting from the sitting position, should be fun. BTW theres always beer in the parking lot afterwards ;)
