BADFISH Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP)
 

MVP-S - 7'6"


Design Notes
Not just a smaller MVP: The MVP-S is a blend of our River Surfer and MVP shapes. More maneuverable and manageable for smaller people. Recommended rider weight up to 160.

What customer will want this board?

River SUP Paddler focused on surfing: I think for some people that have slightly less accessible waves this board will be a better choice than the River Surfer in the sense that it is more stable and has some of the characteristics of the MVP, so getting to and from the wave is much easier. For a customer focused only on surfing, on very accessible waves, the River Surfer is still the best choice, but for someone that needs to be able to paddle to and from the wave this will be the best board regardless of size.

Smaller River SUP Paddler (Kids and Women): This board is smaller and more manageable than the 9'0" and is a great choice for smaller paddlers for running rivers as well as surfing.

MVP - 9'0"

Design Notes
Running rivers on SUP boards has been a growing curiosity for inland paddling enthusiasts for a few years now. However, SUP has earned the moniker "fall down paddling" from paddlers for the simple reason that boards shaped for the ocean or flatwater just don't perform in moving water environments. Paddling whitewater rivers is all about dealing with opposing hydraulic forces, from running through holes and wave trains to crossing boiling eddy fences, paddling whitewater requires a craft that can remain stable in a chaotic environment. The Mountain Valley Paddleboard (MVP) takes the best of whitewater kayak design and combines it with Badfish's 4 years of experience creating river surfing boards into the next level of whitewater stand up board. The MVP has a kayak style chine that is forgiving in eddy turns and ferries while the shedding, high volume nose punches holes like a kayak. These characteristics are blended into a board that will rip river waves like all Badfish boards, because if you are stand up paddling...you are eventually going to want to surf. The MVP is short enough to fit into small eddies and pivot quickly, but the stability in whitewater has allowed this board to win some whitewater races despite its short length. The stability and unique design of the MVP also instills confidence in new paddlers as the progress from flat water to easy moving water. This board will be the go to board for river based stand up paddlers and help push the progression of river SUP.

River Surfer - 6'11"

Design Notes
Dawn patrol surf sessions thousands of miles from any ocean. The River Surfer makes it happen. River waves are not like ocean waves. Rivers waves are generally smaller and slower. ocean waves have sharks under them and aggro locals in the lineup, too. So it is not surprise that boards that surf in the ocean do not work well on standing waves in rivers. 4 years of design and testing have lead to what we think are the ultimate tools for surfing standing waves in rivers. These boards will rip large waves in high volume rivers like the Glenwood wave or Lachine, but where they shine is at the local play wave at average flows. The River Surfer is designed to have enough volume to plane out in smaller river waves, bringing surfing to your backyard play spot. (without sharks)
