Designed with the same DNA as the category defining Competitor, the 12'6" Contender LIGHT was designed to be the
fast and stable board for flat water and course racing for the 130-160lb paddler. This lightning quick Pro-Elite built board excels in flat water but is also stable in the bump.
The BARK Contender is one of thse rare race inspired boards that excels in both flatwater and small bumps, making it the ideal board for the ocean, lake or inter-coastal waterway. The displacement style nose, low-rise deck area andnarrow tail make it the perfect go-to board for the aspiring racer or committed distance paddler.
The new BARK Contender Lite is a reflection of the shift in design towards lower-volume, narrower boards using the same race proven outline of the original Contender.

PRO ELITE CONSTRUCTION
AEvery Pro Elite board is made using our proprietary fused-cell foam core, which is the lightest, most durable core on the market. Tight bonds are created between the fused cells to create a water-resistant core that can withstand dents and dings. The core is then pressure-molded using high-quality carbon and fiberglass with a PVC reinforced standing area resulting in a light, strong, rigid board.
