Description

Program:

The inflatable SUP board with real radical surfing capacities!

 

Introduction

The Couine Marie are high-end boards created by a renowned shaper and passionate engineers.

Our ShortSUPs are totally hassle-free surf performance oriented boards !!! Inflated within minutes, they are light and lively.

Revolution in the inflatable: GONG offers it with FCS II boxes on production models sincs 2021!!!

The most practical and top-of-the-range Fin Boxes in the world are finally available on our Inflatable Boards. With our patented attachment system, you have access to FCS II performance, the best Fins in the world, and all this without a screw. Frankly, it’s awesome.

  • The 2+1 configuration (2 removable lateral fins in the standard FCS II, and 1 center fin mounted on a Us Box) delivers remarkable grip in the curves and allows you to change your fin set-up to explore different surfing feelings. The board accelerates off the rail, and you can put it all away in two seconds. A revolution.

We offer 4 sizes to satisfy all surfers and remain accessible to those who want to get into surfing waves on a SUP but for whom transport or storage space is a real problem.

Very lively and responsive underfoot thanks to its Welded Double Layer Woven construction, it reveals very good surfing abilities that will amaze more than one rider out there!

Compact and easy to transport, it is the perfect Board for a surf break in between two appointments or long distance surf trips.

We like to define our Couine Marie line as the full option version of inflatable SUP boards. They are equipped with all the top of the line accessories, a beautifully worked pad and a semi-rigid edge-rail at the tail for precision and maneuverability.

With a superb design, the Couine Marie ShortSUP is really a beautiful stand up paddle board at a record price and at the top of the range

It has it all:

  • a super comfortable foam lined bag,
  • a US box compatible with all the best fins,
  • ergonomic silicone “racing” carrying handles,
  • a central foam handle in soft neoprene,
  • a tail pad with kicker for better control in the surf and good positioning of your back foot in turns.

 

Construction

With its top of the range inflatable technology in Doubled Layered Welded Woven Dropstitch, this GONG board is beautiful, light, very rigid and really solid.

The Couine Marie are the best, yet still accessible with our direct sales distribution that does not add margins. We are far from the low cost boards made in low end factories by people who know nothing about it.

GONG is a serious and renowned brand, which got into Stand Up Paddling in its very early days and brought it to the level of respectability that we know today. It is therefore unthinkable for us to make low-end products that we see in supermarkets.

 

Equipements

When we know that the fins make 50% of the performance of a board, it was crucial for GONG to find strong technical solutions to improve the performance of the inflatable.

The Couine Marie ShortSUP is therefore delivered with a US central fin plus 2 lateral fins to the FCSII standard.

Our fin configuration is revolutionary for an inflatable SUP: the central US fin coupled with the two FCSII fins allow it to be fitted as a rigid SUP, with all the choice of the best fins in the world compatible without tools with your board to surf almost like on a rigid SUP.

The semi-rigid rails at the tail form a ridge that precise handling and improves water outflow. We go faster and the steering is finer in surfing.

It is equipped with three carrying handles to grab it easily. A central padded and neoprene handle to carry the board under your arm. Two ergonomic silicone “turtle” handles in the front third that allow you to either pass the foams by pulling the board, or to get out of the water by dragging the board over the water. Really practical!

The large diameter leash ring is the strongest on the market. And we’ve added a towing ring for safety, but also because it’s really handy to have an attachment point on the nose during transport, at anchor, or to secure a camera.

The 5 mm thick 3D Diamond Pad is particularly designed to be comfortable. It offers flawless grip and allows long sessions without tiring or slipping. The position of the pad on the board is optimized for surfing, with a real tail pad very far back with kicker to place your foot in the curves.

The supplied double-action inflation pump is super efficient to be the first in the water.

The supplied double-action inflation pump is super efficient to be the first in the water.

A repair kit is also included in the event of damage (note the kit is delivered without glue which you will easily find in your DIY store). Note that we have the components of your board in stock in order to repair it fairly easily.

Everything comes in a super practical and solid rolling carry bag.

  • The wheels are on the opposite side to the carrying face so as not to pinch your buttocks when walking and not to roll on the carrying straps.
  • These backpack straps are very padded and comfortable.
  • The handles are super strong and comfy.
  • The large front pocket allows you to store your accessories and personal effects without risking losing them.
  • And the compression straps keep the bag volume to a minimum.

Nothing is missing !

 

Shape

This compact shape is the ideal compromise between speed and maneuverability in surfing. Its fluid lines are designed to facilitate maneuvers. It’s a clever adaptation of the thousands of templates we’ve developed over the past 30 years that allows for such efficient and easy handling.

The take off is early because the distribution of the volume of an inflatable makes it start early on the wave. But its rocker is heavy to negotiate the slope of the wave with ease.

The outline refined at the tips and the semi-rigid edge rails at the tail allow you to draw beautiful curves with precision. The contribution of semi-rigid rails to drive and stability in surfing is obvious. It clearly boosts your surf and you can attack harder.

For each size, the volume is important to head to the line-up quickly and comfortably in order to take a maximum of waves.

The Benefits are clear:

  • An efficient shape created by the pioneers of SUP in Europe.
  • Proven techno on tens of thousands of boards.

Shape

  • Rocker: almost constant and kicked nose. Quick and easy take off.
  • Rails: by nature, soft and round throughout, which provides a very efficient glide. A semi-rigid and straight edge rail is glued to the tail for precise steering.
  • Volume: the ideal thickness to offer a generous and manageable volume.
  • Outline: Slightly pinched round tail, stable at the center and a thin nose point. Shortboard style.
  • Tail: round tail slightly pinched for maximum maneuverability and speed.
  • Nose: point nose not too wide for radical curves.

Innovation is at the core of our products

TECHNOLOGY GONG COUINE MARIE WOVEN DROPSTITCH

Technology Couine Marie

  • Woven Dropstitch Double Layer Welded technology, the best compromise between weight/stiffness/strength. Combining our historical Double Layer Welded technology with the new Woven Dropstitch, this technology is by far the most reliable, lightest and stiffest.
  • Weight savings of around 20% compared to the classic Double Layer (no glue between the 2 welded PVC layers).
  • Rigidity gain of 30% compared to standard technology.
  • Strength gain: twice as thick as standard technology.
  • Double layer of PVC on the rails.
  • Triple layer central stringer on deck and hull for maximum rigidity and reduced vibration.
  • Premium Woven Dropstitch: the slightest irregularity is refused and the batch is resold to low cost factories.
  • High density Dropstitch Woven: with more threads per square meter than a basic Woven, it resists much higher pressures, lasts much longer, and does not present a risk of explosion.
  • Working pressure: 15 PSI. Our Stand Up Paddle Boards are perfectly rigid at 15 PSI. There is no need to overinflate them, but you can mount them at 20 PSI without any problem.
  • Two-year Warranty on all our Inflatable Boards.
  • We keep in stock all the elements that make up your Board because we are manufacturers. So, you can easily repair them and make them last for more than ten years. It’s as simple as repairing a bicycle wheel.

 

What is Woven Dropstitch?

To understand Dropstitch, it is two skins that are connected by threads every x millimeters. These skins are made of waterproof PVC and the threads are ultra-resistant. All these threads are vertical and of the same length. They allow the two skins to be parallel under tension. When we create this mesh of threads, we are going to make “knots” on the surface a bit like canvas. Then we drown these surfaces in PVC to form the waterproof skins.

We then describe the particularities of the Woven under two axes:

1/ Vertical

The Dropstitch threads are no longer aligned vertically but crossed at different angles, thus forming oblique struts that are cleverly distributed to balance each other. This concept gives much more rigidity to the whole.

2/ Horizontal

The flat braiding of the Dropstitch (the knots) becomes a very compact mesh which brings a great rigidity to the Board. In Woven Dropstitch the fibers are spread out instead of being in cylinders. This mesh is tighter and more homogeneous. It consumes less PVC in the interstices, like combed fibers which consume less resin in the Carbon.

The density of the mesh naturally increases rigidity and requires a thinner PVC backing than conventional Dropstitch (1.9mm vs. 2.5mm for equivalent rigidity).

This optimized weave therefore allows the material to be considerably lighter, without altering its qualities.

Always Double Layer please!!

Attention, our techno remains a Double Layer thermo-welded with all its advantages of rigidity and strength.

What we call the Woven Dropstitch is the heart of the Inflatable Board, which makes the inner dynamics of the Board. But on the outside, nothing is better than a Double Welded Layer to protect your Board from aggressions.

For your information, the Woven can be offered in single or double layer. It’s obviously cheaper in single layer 😉 Inform yourself and ask questions…

The Double Layer Woven is the high-end version of the Inflatable Boards.

Which Boards are made of Woven?

The Woven Dropstitch is the techno for all our Couine Marie SUP, but also in the HIPE.

The 3″ thick Boards like the Couine Marie Surfboards and the smaller HIPE, remain in classic Dropstitch since the Woven is not produced in 3″ to date.

What is the difference between our Couine Marie range and our Chip range? Our summary table

Best quiver choices?

This board is perfect with a Carbon Pro GONG Paddle cut to your size, and a high-end FCS fin set in fiberglass or carbon.

What length of paddle?

If you want high performance, you will need a paddle between your height and + 10cm.

For more relaxed surfing, a + 5cm paddle will be perfect.

Its length determines your paddling frequency and your radius of curves.

 

What length of paddle?

Which leash?

Take a leash about the length of your board and at least 7mm in diameter.

Check its condition before each session and change it every year. This is your life jacket.

Good to know:

Never leave your board in the sun, let alone an inflatable board which will heat up very quickly. You risk seeing it peel off because the materials it is made of become flexible in the heat. Never store it under a car window, or in contact with a heat source.

Never let your board get roughed up in the waves, especially when you’re close to the beach. You have to protect it from major strains. A wave that takes your board and rolls it can do damage.

Do not hold it by the leash indefinitely because it can give way under very high tension. Avoid big waves and don’t resist. If it breaks, it’s easy to change but annoying.

Stay away from oysters: this is one of the few seashells that can cut your board and sink it in seconds. Be careful +++

Don’t let your inflatable board rub on something for a long time. It can happen on a boat, for example, that your board moves with each wave and rubs for hours in the same place. The material will disintegrate because it will be as sanded. You will have a hole that will need to be covered with a patch.

Never put the board between the wave and you: risk of a broken nose type injury 😉

Do not paddle far at sea with an offshore wind, and avoid windy outings as it is rarely fun and always dangerous. SUP is an activity that involves real risks, even in seemingly peaceful conditions. Always anticipate these risks and protect yourself.

Shipping

Availability:

The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available 😉

 

Pre-order:

Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.

 

Delays:

The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.

 

Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.

 

Any questions:

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.

In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉

We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉

 

Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.

 

Delivery:

We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.

 

Reception of your Board:

Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.

In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.

But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.

 

Returns:

You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.

1 review for GONG SUP INFLATABLE COUINE MARIE SHORTSUP

  1. Antoine

    A peine reçue, la Couine Marie ShortSUP 9’5 saute dans l’avion pour la Corse. Passage sans problème comme bagage de soute sans autre formalité. Premier gonflage pour une petite sortie dans la baie de Liscia pour juger l’équilibre et la possibilité de se balader avec. L’équipement est top. Par rapport aux versions précédentes, moins de sensations de trampoline. C’est super rigide. Aucun problème pour des petites balades. Et comme on ne se refait pas, j’ai pu voir que même sur des micro vagues elle partait toute seule. Ça promettait.

    Poursuite de la découverte de la ShortSup 9’5 les jours suivants. Super polyvalente, stable même avec un peu de clapot et de vent. Les drops en bascule dans la pente sont possibles avec une bonne gestion de l’assiette de la board. Les rails rigides permettent de partir tout de suite en front ou en back et permettent de belles courbes. Seul sur le spot j’ai pris plus de 100 vagues en 3h, 8km de balade et de surf selon le GPS…

    Une machine à donner le sourire et une arme pour voyager. Les jours suivants, c’est retour du flat et toute la famille a enchaîné les balades dans une eau Corse magnifique.


    Barely received, the Couine Marie ShortSUP 9’5 jumps on the plane for Corsica. It got accepted as checked-in luggage without any other formality. First inflation for a small session in the bay of Liscia to judge the balance and the possibility of just cruising with it. The equipment is top notch. Compared to previous versions, less “trampoline” sensations. It’s super stiff. No problem for short cruises. And I couldn’t resist trying to take off on a small bump. I could see that even on tiny waves it glides on its own inertia. It looked promising.

    More discovery of the ShortSup 9’5 in the following days. Super versatile, stable even with a little chop and wind. Drops by tilting the board in the slope are possible with a good management of the board. The rigid rails on the tail allow you to set the rail easily, front or backside, and do beautiful curves. Alone on the spot I caught more than 100 waves in 3 hours, 8km of cruising and surfing according to the GPS …

    A machine to make people smile and a weapon for traveling. The following days, the flat was back and the whole family went for cruises on the magnificent Corsican water.
