The Karmen is a high performance but comfortable shortSUP. It is therefore perfect for both a pro and an intermediate level SUPer who wants to open up to new sensations as Mario explains to us on our forum, having gone from the Mob 8’3 to the Karmen FSP Pro 8’9.
First of all, know that I am not a great technician, so I do not claim that my feedback is indisputable. In any case, I wanted to share my experience.
I went from the 140-liter Mob 8’3 to the 140-liter Karmen 8’9. I felt a bit of instability at the start but that was forgotten after half an hour on the water. There were small waves with wind. Very sloppy conditions. I found my position on the board and my feet were glued to the pad during the maneuvers. It is even faster than the Mob.
It even starts better I think but due to my lack of experience I can’t seem to get it to speed up as well. So far I have only been able to surf small waves. These are the prevailing conditions here in the Mediterranean. Can’t wait for a real storm to try it out on big waves. ”
