The black 85 Nitro is like nothing you have seen in the stand up paddle board market prior to 2010. The SUP market is evolving, as are the abilities of stand up paddle surfers. Coreban is on the leading edge driving SUP surfing performance forward, and thats what the Nitro is all about. The unique black color of the board is unique to say the least. You dont customarily see black used as a base color on surfboards as black heats up and can lead to de-lamination on typically constructed surfboards (and even worse on typically constructed stand up paddle boards). Of course, nothing about Coreban surfing SUPs is typical, and the introduction of the Nitro in black announces this to the world.

8'5" Nitro Paddle Surfing SUP by Coreban

Coreban Nitro SUP

The Nitro features an ideal SUP surfing rocker line. A slight V shaped bottom and pinched rails in the nose allow for tight turns and quick release. In line with modern short board design, the SUP traction pad includes a raised tail kick to prevent nose dives and allows for more radical maneuvers on the face of the wave. Quite literally, the high-performance Nitro surfing SUP by Coreban is bring stand up paddle surfing to new heights!

About Coreban

The Coreban company has been making high-quality, high-performance stand up paddle surfing boards since 2005, longer than most every brand of SUP on the market. Their primary focus is on stand up paddle surfing performance. Their secondary focus is on high-quality, durable boards. Theyre not the cheapest boards on the market. In reality, they may very well be some of the most expensive stand up paddle boards on the market but they make a product that is widely hailed by those who do EPS board repairs as some of the best made boards out there. And when you spend $1000+ on a piece of sports equipment, its not really supposed to be a disposable product. Its a product that you will take to the repair shop if you get a major ding or puncture. Coreban gets this, and they design their boards for long term durability in addition to performance.

To bring this concept of quality and durability home to you, here is a personal experience I had while attending a board retailers seminar at a recent ASR (Action Sports Retailers) tradeshow. During the lunch break I had the fortune of sitting at a lunch table with a couple of well known surf shop owners from Southern California. These are guys that have been in the surf industry for decades and each own several major surf shops. Funny, for as much perceived tension as there is between surfers and stand up paddle surfers, it seems all of the shop owners are huge SUP fanatics. Thats what they do in their off time. I actually learned to SUP from a local San Diego shop owner. Anyways, at lunch they were discussing SUPs and I asked them what they thought of Coreban boards. The consensus was that they were some of the best boards out there. They commented that while many of the high-end board brands are all made in the same factory overseas, the Coreban ones seem to do something differently and the result is a board that can take abuse and show virtually no signs. While almost every other board out there (no matter how big the brand, or how expensive) seems to get the rails dinged up over time, the Corebans just dont. From that conversation, my mind was made up about which high-end board to carry in addition to our own Tower stand up paddle boards. Corebans may not be the best priced board out there, but if youre the type of person who is much more concerned with getting the absolute best there is versus getting the best price, you cant go wrong with a Coreban.
