The Generation is the best of 3 worlds; Surfing, Racing and Touring. The Generation is basically the perfect board for a one board quiver. A true high-performance all round paddle board.
Due to popular demand, the range has expanded to 6 sizes in total to accommodate all riders’ weight and skill levels.

Award-winning and the world’s paddle board of choice.




Surfing - It will remind you of the Longboard when surfing as the tail outline makes it respond with ease.

Racing - It will remind you of the All Star board when racing in all water conditions.

Touring - It will remind you of the Touring board when it comes to stability and user-friendliness

> Outline - Fairly parallel, which delivers a predictable and controlled glide. The wide nose delivers fast acceleration when sprinting as it floats on top of the water. The tail is pulled into a square shape, making it easier to sink for fast buoy turns and most responsive to turn sharply in the surf

> Round Vee Nose - Helps lift the board to accelerate faster and maintain a higher top speed. It also floats over chop smoothly, making it versatile to handle all conditions.

> Gradual nose kick - Helps stop the board from diving in the surf and downwind, as well as lifting over chop upwind. The curved rocker is fast on flats, smooth in the surf and very capable in chop.

> Rail thickness - Maintained throughout the entire profile of the board, giving a balanced glide from nose to tail. The Generation is thinner than a Touring and Race board, making it lighter to maneuver and easier to carry.

> Rail tuck edge - Round to avoid nose catching, sharpening at the middle to create a stable platform, through to sharp edge at the tail to carve in the surf.

> Deep double concave - Supports the round Vee with stability direct under foot.

> Recessed pad - For comfort and stability. The flat deck makes it easy to move freely around when trimming the board and surfing on the tail.

> 2 in 1 shoulder carry strap and paddle holder - 

  • Velcro loop to attach your paddle.
  • Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and free up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.
  • When not in use, the bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.

(Comes with Blue Carbon model and can be purchased after-market for Lite Tech Wave and Rhino)

> Bungee tie down - A Bungee tie down in front of the board for storing gear and supplies

> FCS Insert - On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS. (Available only on Blue Carbon model)

> Thruster Fin set up - A single fin set up provides good straight-line tracking and is easy to buoy turn when racing. A thruster set up with the 5.5” side fins proved the best combination for added drive and control to turn the board with ease in surf. Blue Carbon comes with Armacore fin. Lite Tech Wave and Rhino come with Net Positive fins


What sizes do they come in?

Choose the length: If you want the fastest option then choose the 14’0” models. The longer length offers the fastest glide and best efficiency, allowing you to paddle longer distances with more speed than the 12’6”. The 14’0” is the best option for those more focused on cruising, touring and racing.

The 12’6” being shorter remains the more maneuverable option, easier and faster to turn in the surf and nimble for lighter riders. If you’re focused on surfing, have limited storage and want a board that’s easier to transport, then go with the 12’6”.

Choose your width: The Generation is available in 3 widths

  • The 30” wide is the most stable option for heavier riders and those that want the most forgiveness in choppier conditions.
  • The 28” width is the best combination of speed and stability, offering the best of both worlds.
  • The 26” is more targeted at speed and efficiency, suited for lighter riders and high skilled riders that choose speed over stability.

14'0" x 30" - If you want to maximise your glide and have the most stable ride, this is the go to board. Designed for riders up to 120kg, the 30” width is the most forgiving and stable choice.

14'0" x 28" - Designed for riders up to 110kg, the 28” is the original size which combines speed and stability, giving you the best of both.

14'0" x 26" - If speed is your priority, then this is the board for you. The 14’0” length maximises the glide and allows you to compete in the 14’0” race class, while the 26” width is most efficient for riders up to 100kg.

12'6" x 30" - Being the widest 12’6”, it offers the best stability for riders up to 110kg. The 12’6” length being shorter is easier to maneuver on and off the water.

12'6" x 28" - Suited to riders up to 100kg, the 28” is the original favorite of the Generation and our best-selling model.

12'6" x 26" - The 26” is the fastest and most efficient 12’6”, designed for lighter riders up to 90kg.


What construction do they come in?


The best-lightest value ever
Shoulder carry strap makes it easy and lighter to carry the board.
Introducing light biaxial carbon on the deck mixed with a protective layer of low-weight fiberglass placement resulting in the lightness you can feel.
Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistant and rigidity.
2 x T-stringers on the full deck significantly increase strength against total breakage in waves. (Special on Generation board only)



• Extra rigidity with the introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail/ nose reinforcements.
• Australian pine on the standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity in the most critical area.
• Comes with shoulder carry strap inserts. Starboard shoulder carry strap can be purchased aftermarket.
• All inserts have added high-density foam reinforcements.



• Built to last, Rhino is the most durable and hardwearing technology designed for schools and clubs.
• The entire board is wrapped in a thick, tough thermoplastic polymer ABS skin, offering an ultra strong impact resistance and durable shell.
• The full rail is wrapped with a 0.7mm thick rail band to further protect the rails against impact.
• Full EVA deck makes it forgiving and comfortable to move around.
• A tow hole in the nose makes it easy to tow the boards and makes it easy to lock multiple boards together.
