Joe Bark 14′ SUP Stand Up Paddle Racing Board



On my recent visit to Joe Bark’s HQ, he showed me their latest racing stand up paddle board, the 14′ “Dominator”. According to Joe, it is the fastest and most stable 14′ that they have ever put out. They tested over 20 prototypes to get this exact board. The “Dominator” is shaped similar to one of their 12′6″ boards, just stretched out with a few contour changes. It has a flat deck which goes into a dome at the nose, a wide square tail, flat bottom and a piercing nose.

The board that Joe showed me comes without a rudder but according to him it can be fitted with one. They are actually working on a version with a rudder for use in channel crossings.

I was able to meet up with Scott Gamble, the winner of the 2009 Duke’s Oceanfest Race. Scott finished the 9 mile (my GPS showed 9.5 miles) race in 1:15:26. That’s an average speed of 8.3 mph. For those who don’t race, that’s really fast! Scott also showed us the 14′ SUP racer that Joe made for him to test.

    I didn’t see the mention if the board’s weight. Anyone know the weight?

    The one I tried felt around 28 to 30 lbs. It think Joe can make it as light as 22 lbs or so to around 30 lbs, depending on the construction people choose.
