Shark SUPs 14′ Speed 2017 review / Inflatable Race iSUP
Shark SUPs 14’Speed / Race iSUP £930 / $1199

SUPboarder reviews the 2017 Shark SUPs 14′ Speed. This inflatable Race iSUP from a cheaper price point brand has a few neat things that even the more expensive iSUP race boards haven’t got. The board has a solid feel which you would expect from a board being 6′ thick. And the hard rubber wave piercing nose and pronounced tail kicker makes paddling this board a lot of fun and the performance better than many more expensive boards on the market… Don’t underestimate this Sharks speed!

Board details:
  • Length        14′
  • Width         25″
  • Thickness   6″
  • Fin set up  1 x Plastic US box centre fin
  • Weight       13 kg

  1. Very informative and accurate review, thanks a lot.
    This board is also as 12’6″ available. I weight 160 lbs , 5ft 10″ tall. Would 12,6 be also good then?
    I like to go faster then with an allround board on one side but on the other side I don’t want to fall in the water all time, especially in winter times. How critical are the 25″ width ?

    The seaeagle needlenose inflatable boards also have a hard, sharp bow. The 126 is available with 30″width and 26″ as a race version. How would you see these boards compared to the shark sups racer?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    1. Hi Moritz
      I used the board lots and weigh more than you about 75kg and never fell in. The narrower width makes the board faster than the wider boards. A 12’6” would be fine for you but not as fast as the 14′ of course. We are really happy with this race iSUP fast and a lot of fun too. We have not tested the Seaeagle boards so cant really comment on how those boards compare. But would stay away from the 30 wide one if you want to paddle fast! Narrow boards are ok on flat water but just give yourself time to get the feel of it. Sorry on delay on getting back, hope that helps.

  2. Hi Reuben
    Thanks for your feedback that helped me a lot to make a decision.
    I just got the 14′ shark speed last week and paddled it on this weekend.
    I had a lot of fun and fast paddle feeling and it has a nice look. I am excited that this more effordable board got such a good Performance assessment in comparison with the more expensive boards.
    I noticed that the nose on the board is not air tight sealed. Means when I slightly squeeze the nose a little air flows out. Does your board has the same condition? The Shop says this is normal since the nose is designed to release pressure.
