    The downwind game changer for choppy water and open-ocean conditions.  The 12'6 x 24" Ace was Penelope Strickland's teamrider board of choice for the Fiji ISA World Champs, on which she won the gold medal in the technical race. 

    It is also perfect for Waitemata Harbour course racing and downwind conditions. 

    The shorter length just seems to "fit" the bumps here in NZ, while the excellent handling in cross wind and chop makes it still unbeatable at the weekly Mission Bay Ray White Auckland PaddleFest.  

    A favourite choice amongst the competitive womens division. Nothing beats an Ace. 

    • Designed for slightly more advanced riders paddling in choppy and open ocean conditions.
    • Curved rocker line for acceleration and entry onto bumps, connecting between waves and speed upwind.
    • Cockpit standing area has been extended for added sensitivity to trim up and down the board to stay forever-catching bumps.
    • High vertical side walls provide pop in chop and lowers the center of gravity for increased stability for the rider to exert maximum power with every stroke. Also restricts water entering the tray.
    • Widened inside the tray at the tail for more room placing your feet back for improved stability and buoyancy when buoy turning.
    • Added volume in the tail forces the tail to pop up immediately once submerged, minimizing drag.
    • NACA profile outline with its narrow tail provides an incredibly efficient release of water.

    “I choose the Ace when downwinding as it’s the most fun you can have with the wind at your back. It is also perfect for those really choppy days or when the ocean is like a washing machine. The ace is very forgiving as you are standing right on the waterline in the dugout position! Can’t wait until summer in Perth to get this board out again.” Michael Booth
