New design,Wide Speed, Infinity
« on: January 23, 2022, 11:01:48 AM »
   Its been awhile since I've posted but still cruise around the zone reading all the stories.  Thank you all for sharing..
      I was on the Infinity SUP / Surf, site. There is a New design being offered; 2022, A Wide Speed Model.  Offered in 8 sizes from 7'-7" to 11'.   I had seen a 8-2 x 32'' offered in this design. Similar specs to my Starboard 8-2 Wide Point, which is the board I've had for many years,  which is  no longer offered by SB. ( discontinued ). I was going to call the company for info on the new model.  Be happy to share their info.
 Just wondering if any fellow zoners have insight or info on this new design..
   Thank you for your time and energy for reading and / or responding.

I'm curious, but rocker is going to make all the difference on these. My 8'2 widepoint always felt like it had too much nose rocker. The mock up on the site makes it look like it might have chines, which would make it a very different beast than the old wide points were.

I'm not sure if I like the parallel rails. It kind of looks like a shortboard/longboard hybrid. I'd like to see it in action but I can't find any videos.

Dave posted a pretty in-depth video about it today in the Infinity SUP Owners Group on Facebook.  Probably need to join to see it but he is pretty responsive there.
