About the NeedleNose™ Series

The patented NeedleNose™ iSUPs are by far the best tracking iSUPs in the world! Able to perform in a vast array of environmental conditions where other inflatables wouldn't dare! Get the performance of a rigid board plus the convenience of an inflatable and more!

Aptly named NeedleNose™ these iSUPs feature a patented razor sharp, wave piercing bow that allows you to slice through the wind, waves, current and water. Something that no other iSUP can offer. The elegant curved touring shape with a straight-line NO UPTURN hull design enables you to customize your skill and performance levels with 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear standing locations (see video). A diamond patterned deck pad is easier on your feet with a kick tail that allows pivot and kick turning on a dime! These features make the NeedleNose™ iSUPs the fastest, sleekest, best inflatable SUPs in the world!

Say goodbye to unnecessary airline fees and damaged SUPs! These weigh under 30 lbs. and are designed to be checked as baggage. (US Patent #8,821,204)

The diamond surface deck pad displaces pounds per square inch of pressure evenly along the pads of your feet while introducing air voids. Think it as standing on the clouds. This allows you to paddle longer, further and faster without suffering from achy feet.

  • Custom Performance Kick Tail

    Custom Performance Kick Tail

    Enabling you to easily perform advanced maneuvers such as sharp, snappy kick turns and 360º (turn on a dime) pivot turns while preventing you from slipping off the tail and assisting you with blind foot placement that's precise every time.

  • Super Rigid High Pressure Lightweight Drop Stitch Material Construction

    Super Rigid High Pressure Lightweight Drop Stitch Material Construction

    Our Drop Stitch material uses thousands of high tensile strength threads connecting the top and bottom fabric layers, creating thousands of I-beam supports. This enables our NeedleNose™ Series SUPs to be inflated to a much higher pressure (15 psi) which increases overall rigidity while maintaining our SUPs incredible light weight. The unique Drop Stitch construction provides the added benefit of being able to be pack in its own backpack. The Sea Eagle NeedleNose™ SUP is tough as nails, incredibly rigid, ultra light, and a delight to paddle.

  • Universal U.S. Fin Box System

    Universal U.S. Fin Box System

    The NeedleNose™ Racer features a universal U.S. fin-box system. Although a great all-around racing skeg is provided, the U.S. fin-box system gives the rider the option to use different style skegs for various racing conditions and environments.

    *Be sure to check skegs for U.S. fin-box compatibility.
