SUP Riviera Original 10’6″
Here’s our review of Riviera Original 10’6″. Dimensions: 10’6″ x 32″ x 4,5″. Volume: 171 L.
Classic Look, Innovative Shape
While it’s also a perfect board for first time paddlers because of its great stability, the Riviera Original 10’6″ is ideal for touring & surfs well. It has a slightly pulled in nose and pinched rails for better maneuverability in the surf. It has a 2 + 1 setup that give you the options for different paddling conditions.
High quality materials
Even though we like it for its shape, we also love the way these fiber/epoxy boards are built. Riviera’s Original are reinforced with a carbon deck patch and Kevlar fiber rails, giving it more strenght and solidity, without increasing its weight (a tiny 26 lbs!).
New Eco Molded Blanks by Riviera Paddlesurf
All Riviera Original boards start their life as a Eco Molded Blank.
We also love the new Eco Molded Blanks that Riviera is now using to build the Original. This new molding process, Riviera’s newest leap in an environmental friendly direction, eliminates excess foam waste. Typically, 5 boards are cut from 1 large EPS foam block; 67% of the foam block becomes scrap. Riviera’s new Eco Molded Blanks are a single pressure mold which leaves zero foam waste. This new process is not only environmentally friendly, but creates a denser foam blank, making it even stronger and lighter than traditional foam blanks.
