COTAN


As the development of this special shape on surfboard and kiteboard designs has taken off, proving it works great (up to the point that some riders only ride this type of C.O.T.A.N. shapes), it was time to develop a specific board line also for SUP. Two new shapes that will increase your stoke for supping in waves! Available in the Classic construction. Bamboo sandwich stepping area and superlight composite carry handle box. The C.o.t.a.n. pro and classic features two possible fins setup combination thruster-fins or quad fins.
