The Samos SUP is a rotationally moulded stand up paddle board, born to bring something new to the exploding SUP arena. Traditionally, epoxy and composite boards are the natural choice, although with the growing adoption of inflatable paddle boards, we wanted to bring a fresh new alternative to the market.
We had two main priorities in creating the Samos. Firstly, to combat some traditional problems found in rotationally moulded boards. Second, to create a feel that was comparable to more expensive options on the market, suitable for beginner to intermediate level paddlers. Typically, rotationally-moulded paddle boards have been problematic due to their evolution from a kayak design, making them impractical in shape and weight; often in excess of 25KG.
Why choose the Samos SUP?
The innovative design of the Samos targets both these problems in one. The unique wishbone features on the Samos works by acting against the natural yarding as the paddler strokes. This keeps the nose pointing straight; splitting below the deck to give support for a natural stance. In doing so, this has allowed us to produce a much thinner board than many standard rotationally-moulded boards. This means at 20KG the Samos is one of the lightest stand up paddle boards on the market! However, the Samos still manages to boast an all-rounder profile. This makes it great for all applications from day play, and exploring, to fitness and fun on the waves.
The Samos includes a wide set of features as standard:
– Carry handle grips and deck area,
– Drain plug, bottle holder, paddle and straight leash.
– A custom 10.5″ fin box accepting all standard fins.
– Front bungee storage
As always, you can be safe in the knowledge that it’s manufactured to Fatyak’s high quality rotational moulding standards. This means no seams and no joints. As well as this, the Samos SUP is manufactured using high grade, high density UV stabilised polyethylene. Made in accordance with BS7852 as well as our own high standard procedures, in Somerset, England.
