Description

Program:

The easy, dynamic and solid Race/Cruising and Fitness Board.

Introduction:

The Sherpa FSP Pro is our Cruising / Fitness and even Race Board.

The range is composed of 4 shapes for all sizes and for different programs.

The 10’6 and the 12’6 x 30 are ideal riding companions. They are spacious, stable, very easy to access and have very good gliding qualities.

The 12’6 x 27 is a more “racy” shape. The reduced width allows performances very close to Full Carbon Race Boards thanks to the dynamic FSP Pro technology. It is a perfect Board for training, fitness and competition under the feet of the most experienced riders, who will appreciate its very solid top of the range construction.

The 14’0 x 26 is cut for long rides and long-distance competitions. Its main feature is a high average speed, easy to maintain. This is essential when it comes to rowing for long hours on mythical herculean events. But it’s also great on cool rides with friends.

In short: it’s the Board that everyone can use for amateur rides and competitions.

These Boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP Pro for the best possible dynamism. The gain in performance is striking. As is the gain in strength with a full carbon sandwich on both sides and rails. The resistance to bending is phenomenal and your EPS foam is fully protected by a high-density PVC Foam Shell. Everything covered with a layer of 3K Carbon on top and a light grey brush. Strong, light and resolutely top of the range.

The Sherpa FSP Pro is equipped with the 3D Function Pad 2020 which is more resistant and provides great comfort and maximum grip. Moreover, we offer them with a US Center Box. The standard for Fin Boxes on the market. You can assemble your single Fins according to your wishes and your rowing style by accessing an almost infinite catalogue of top-of-the-range Fins. The “full grip” carrying handle is designed for large Boards and has a net at the front and back to carry gear or a snack, a Leash Plug in front of the feet and at the back, nothing is missing.

Shape

  • Rocker : very low with a very marked bow, this Board is made to go fast.
  • Rails : moderate behind and clear in front for a smooth ride even in chop.
  • Volume : big enough to be stable, fast rowing and have strong accelerations in the swell.
  • Outline : Sharp for speed but wide enough in the middle for comfort.
  • Deck : big bowl under the feet.
  • Bottom : bow to flat to channel.
  • Tail : diamond cut for boosting in the swell, for stability and for surfing small waves.
  • Nose : point nose for maximum speed and super glide in chop.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

Technology FSP PRO SUP :

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshape by numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing off the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy board and EPS Foam Blank: solid and lightweight.
  • Deck, hull, and rails in Vacuumed PVC Sandwich: incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: full PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Hull: integral PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 6oz carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Rails: the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails: increased structural strength, very good shock resistance (paddle strokes).
  • Carry Handle integrated into the PVC sandwich top: limits settling, avoid breakage in the surroundings.
  • Hot coat Integrated Tinted Resin: nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
  • Matt custom finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and better glide.

The FSP PRO Technology is easily repairable when new in case of Dings or accidents. The PVC Foam of the Sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks.

This technology offers, at an affordable price for Carbon, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of a full vacuum PVC sandwich.

Buying guide

Pour qui ?

Les amoureux de balades et de nature évidemment.

Pas besoin d’être en super forme, il suffit de prendre une largeur confortable.

La technique de rame est simple, un débutant peut tout à fait commencer en Sherpa.

 

Pour quoi ? 

Balade, fitness, découverte des spots et même un peu de surf dans les longues ondulations qui se présentent.

Un énervé s’alignera sur les compétitions amateurs sans rougir car elles glissent bien.

 

Quelle taille ?

  • La 10’6 est géniale pour sa maniabilité à terre comme sur l’eau. C’est la Sherpa pas compliquée.
  • La 12’6 x 27’’ est ambiance course, alors soit vous aimez la race soit vous aimez une planche typée.
  • La 12’6 x 30’’ est la promeneuse absolue : hyper facile, rapide, douce, chargeable.
  • La 14’ est l’ultime de la gamme pour les longues sorties, les DW et la course amateur.

 

Quelles copines de quiver ? 

La Sherpa va avec n’importe quel quiver, du moment que vous aimez ramer.

Seule c’est une planche qui comblera vos envies d’évasion.

Couplée à une planche pour surfer, c’est l’assurance d’être sur l’eau 365 jours par an. Le choix est selon vos envies.

C’est aussi la copine idéale dans le quiver d’un surfeur qui veut garder la forme les jours de flat. Quoi de mieux que d’aller ramer en pleine nature à deux pas de chez soi. Combiné avec un bon coup de skate c’est le top.

 

Quel montage de dérives ?

Le montage single US permet de mettre toutes les dérives du marché. Le choix est infini mais se résumera à du cosmétique pour 80%.

Oui, certains shapes de dérives de touring/race marquent une réelle différence avec leurs congénères, mais c’est à la marge sur un programme balade.

 

Quelle longueur de pagaie ?

Entre +15cm et +20cm en balade. Un peu plus court en race.

 

Quel leash ? 

Prenez un leash de race téléphone, 10’ feront l’affaire. Un diamètre réduit (6mm) vous fera gagner beaucoup de vitesse. Au-dessus d’une force de vent et d’une taille de vague, vous devez avoir un 7mm au minimum.

Vérifiez son état avant chaque session et changez-le tous les ans. C’est votre gilet de sauvetage.


For whom?

Lovers of walks and nature, of course.

No need to be in great shape, just take a comfortable width.

The rowing technique is simple; a beginner can quite simply start, and fully enjoy, a Sherpa.

 

What is it for?

Cruising, fitness, discovering spots and even a bit of surfing in the long undulations that arise.

An energetic person will line up for amateur competitions without blushing because the potential for serious glide is there.

 

What Size?

  • The 10’6 is great for its handling on land as well as on the water. It’s the uncomplicated Sherpa.
  • The 12’6 x 27” has a racing feel to it, so either you like racing or you like a typical Board.
  • The 12’6 x 30” is the absolute easyrider: super easy, fast, soft, lots of buoyancy.
  • The 14′ is the ultimate Board for long rides, DW and amateur racing.

 

Which Quiver Partners?

The Sherpa goes with any Quiver, as long as you like to paddle.

Only that with this Board you will really satisfy your desire for escape.

Coupled with a surfboard, it’s the assurance of being on the water 365 days a year. The choice is up to you.

It’s also the ideal friend for a surfer who wants to keep in shape on flat days. What could be better than going rowing in the middle of nature just a stone’s throw from home. Combined with a good skateboarding session, it’s the best.

 

What Fin Set-up?

The US single assembly allows you to use all the Fins on the market. The choice is infinite but 80% of it will be cosmetic.

Yes, some touring/race Fin shapes make a real difference with their counterparts, but that’s on the fringe on a touring program.

 

How long should my Paddle be?

Between +15cm and +20cm for a ride. A little shorter in race.

 

Which Leash ?

Use a Coiled Race Leash, 10′ will do. A reduced diameter (6mm) will give you a lot of speed. Above a wind force and a wave size, you must have a 7mm minimum.

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