This is one of the new Tropical Blends SUP prototype boards. The Rawson Custom 10′ was shaped by Pat Rawson for Tropical Blends’ custom line of SUP’s.
The Rawson 10′ is built in San Diego, using a vacuum bag process with 1.5 lbs. foam and measures 10′ x 30″ and 4′ thick. It’s a super light board weighing roughly 17 lbs.
Pat Rawson made a very refined finish of this board with round pin tail, nice rail and foil. A comfortable board with a five-fin set-up allows the rider to use a quad, single fin, twin with a trailer or a 2 + 1. Having five fin boxes, the rider has more alternatives.
The Rawson bottom contour has a single concave going into a double barrel. Though not as pronounced as the other new boards. The concave gets more pronounced towards the back and ends with a v on the tail.
