The Surftech Bark Vapor is your need for speed. Designed by Joe Bark in collaboration with the best paddlers, the Bark Varpor brings together an entirely new outline, rocker and foil to create a board that is fast, stable and serious in a variety of racing conditions.
Combining the best of both displacement and flotation design, the Vapor's minimalist outline curves, decreased rocker and all-new nose design gives it a fluid entry and glide to maximize the speed of every stroke.
The Surftech Bark Vapor is a marriage from the depths of legendary shaper Joe Bark’s paddling mind: why not put a prone paddling nose from the famous Bark Commander prone board on a SUP? The result is the Vapor, available in both 12’6″ and 14″ (both 26″ wide). According to Bark, this is an extremely versatile shape, most at home in the rugged open ocean but also fast on flat water as well. This board has the potential to become your everyday distance sled for riding bumps to surf races.
Surftech vapor looks great, like the dominator and the downwinders had an angry fast baby.
• 12’6″ and 14′ versions
• Front half designed after the CT prone line, the back half after the Bark D2 Race Board
• Great in mixed up conditions, bumps
• Mixed reactions because of the rounded nose. Visually it is different as water isn’t displaced. As with any board or shape, put a Speed Coach or GPS on it to see it’s speed compared to what you’re used to. It might just blow your mind. -
12'6 x 26" x 7"
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.
