It's bizarre how so many of the early innovator's have fizzled. The designs were there....what happened....???

They switched to foiling. Blane is the man behind Red Manta foilboards.

There is one for sale not far from me. I don't know much about them it just caught my eye from seeing this thread. Looks and sounds/reads (from description) like a really nice board.

The Carroll SUP’s are one of the coolest feeling rides I have owned. I have been riding the 9’0 Loose Leaf for about a year. Loose. Incredible glide, the V1 is heavy and crushes any chop around. I am selling the 9’0 and buying a smaller Loose Leaf!

I had ridden practically  every model Blane had made over the years and this model has incredible stability, glide, and a very fluid feeling underfoot. That 11’ long grain would float an NFL player, I expect. The 9’0 is probably ideal for 190lbs or so...

Some reviews have been less than kind on those boards. Check Seabreeze ...
