A fan favourite of the boardshop the Tom Carroll SUPs offer a surfing potential unmatched by other brands. The outer reef provides amazing response in longboard style SUPing and the loose leaf as the name suggests allows the user to Stand up Paddle surf in the critical points of the wave.
The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Outer Reef Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) draws from the advanced hydrodynamic design features of the original Loose Leaf and Long Grain models applied to a more accessible and affordable range equally suited to flat-water and the surf.
OVERVIEW: Built in a very strong and versatile construction, the Outer Reef SUP offers additional volume all round, and sizes to cover the discerning recreational SUP paddler in the beginner-to-intermediate class.
DESIGN: Born from a focus on speed and paddle power to ride the outer reefs of Oahu's North Shore with ease. The complex, but highly effective bottom contours that feature across TCPS SUP's have been softened on the Outer Reef to provide efficient water flow over a large surface area, and offer high volume stability without sacrificing flow or paddle efficiency.
CONTOURS: The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose while also reducing slapping. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail which provides ample turning capabilities and prevents rail-to-rail sticking, especially in uneven, choppy conditions and when driving through unpredictable wave zones. A slight bevel on the underside of the rail enhances trim sensitivity on the wave face.
ROCKER: A more relaxed rocker on the Outer Reef offers exceptional flow on flat-water and entry speed onto waves, while still encouraging smooth turning arcs from the sweet spot position. The rocker has also been designed to allow freedom of movement from the back turning zone right up to the nose.
FINS: 2 + 1 set up comes with FCS II GL side bites which add maneuverability and control when riding waves, and a custom 9" TCPS single fin that's big enough to offer an efficient flat-water stroke rate, while still allowing for easy turning. Tom prefers to set the centre fin forward in the box to keep the tail free and loose.
PERFORMANCE: Available in 4 sizes, the TCPS Outer Reef utilizes technical design elements to increase flat-water paddling speed and enhance wave riding response. Fast, stable, yet sensitive to the rider, the Outer Reef SUP is considered a user-friendly model that offers a positive and connected feel to the ocean, be it on the open water or sliding down the face of a wave.

The TC Paddle Surf Loose Leaf Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) brings design and innovation together to produce a board that caters to the performance end of the SUP wave riding market.
DESIGN: Inspired by Tom Carroll’s lust for riding waves with no limitations. The overall design focuses on providing control through efficient water flow, and remarkable response through specially designed bottom curves and a more refined outline.
CONTOURS: The unique bottom contours reduce rail volume and drag without sacrificing wave riding sensitivity. The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose and enhances a positive connection to the wave face on steeper drops. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail, which provides quick turning capabilities and effortless roll from rail-to-rail.
ROCKER: Moderate nose lift combined with a smooth rocker profile out through the tail allows this board to accelerate quickly off the mark and fit in the most critical parts of the wave at multiple angles of attack. The rocker has also been designed to allow forward movement when paddling into waves, and easy turning when driving off the tail zone.
FINS: Versatile 4 + 1 set up comes with the new FCS II TC SUP quad set for ultimate pivoting and turning response. The 6″ TC Paddle Surf single fin can be used with either the quad side or rear fins providing a more controlled feel.
PERFORMANCE: Five sizes in this model accommodate a broad range of riders. Highly responsive with just the right amount of control, this board is ideal for those adventuring from the intermediate to advanced end of their wave riding skills.

Technology CX Construction Carbon Fusion (CX) is a multi-layer sandwich construction that’s formed through the use of several vacuum bag processes. The goal of this construction is to build a light-weight, strong and performance orientated board. Consisting of two layers of carbon, multiple layers of fibreglass and unidirectional carbon tape applied to a medium density EPS core, the vacuum bagging process is done after each layer is applied to ensure the maximum bond is formed, without an excess use of epoxy resin. This process produces a superb product that will more than meet the requirements of paddlers who want to push their performance
