404 RACE SERIES
CARBON V3 12'6
First it was the Monster in 2010. Then it was the Zeedonk in 2012. In 2014 it is the V3. The V3 is the best of all worlds.
The V3 has taken the fastest aspects of both the Monster and Zeedonk, incorporating 404’s square rails, a new nose designed to glide above the water, a square tail, and a recessed deck. It is designed to have have the maximum amount of stability without sacrificing speed or glide. The V3 works in all conditions.

Beginning at the bow, the V3 employs a rounded nose which is sufficiently sharp to punch through waves and chop while avoiding the pitfalls of self-steering when traveling downwind or through turbulent waters. The nose is designed with ample volume to quickly shed water and contribute to the board’s stability, while gliding over the surface above the water. On the bow’s underside, a graduated V gives way to a gently rounded planning hull which enables the board to track well and easily get up to speed in a variety of conditions from flatwater inside the harbor to small chop and rolling ocean swell. The 404 V3’s square tail anchors the board’s stability whether you are paddling downwind, through chop, or executing a pivot turn.
The 404 V3 will suit intermediate to advanced paddlers interested in a solid all-around SUP for racing, fitness training or touring [in style]. The colors are sharp and make the board stand out both on and off the water. It performs exceedingly well and was a lot of fun to paddle.
