FAST AND FORGIVING
The Connector is designed by Dave Kalama who is the pioneer of SUP downwind paddling. Dave has been designing and testing downwind boards and winning downwind races since the beginning of modern day SUP as we know it. What makes downwind paddling fun and rewarding is the glide you get when you hook up a bump and are able to connect from one bump to another and string together a long ride with tons of glide. To do this you need a board that gets you on the bumps, and allows you to stay on the bumps.
The Connector’s progressive nose rocker, parallel touring style outline and ample width allows you to take on and have fun in all water and weather conditions. Take it on your regular downwind run or use it to explore the coastline. Whether it’s for an afternoon cruise, multi-day expedition, or to connect the bumps to see how far they take you, the Connector is confidence inspiring performance in every detail.
You also need a board that accelerates fast and is stable enough to handle the chop that downwind conditions throw at you. The Connector is a combination of all of these design needs rolled up into a clever board to allow you to have as much fun as possible during a downwind run.
IMPACT RAILS – Additional glass along the rails. Adds stiffness and impact strength.
HEAT EMBOSSED DIAMOND GROOVE EVA DECK-PAD – Comfy grip and heat sealed to keep the pad watertight to reduce board weight.
RECESSED COCKPIT – Keeps you close to the waterline promoting stability and glide.
ACTION CAM INSERT – Capture memories to last a lifetime.
GENUINE FCS FIN – FCS Touring Fin
ALL CARBON BOARDS
Imagine’s Carbon Composite construction includes a full carbon deck, bottom, and rails layered with a full glass deck, bottom and rails. Wood reinforcement in the standing area prevents heal dents while an additional glass layer on the rails increases impact strength.
