ABOUT SMIK STAND UP PADDLE BOARDS
SMIK founder, Scott, is a previous world wavesailing champion and initially started with Starboard as a sponsored rider, designer and tester of windsurfing boards. When stand up paddle boarding hit the scene, Scott jumped straight into SUP – as both a designer and tester. He was probably the first person to bring a SUP into Australia in 2007. He still designs a popular range of stand up paddle boards for Starboard, but recently branched out to develop his own line of stand up paddle boards. And this is all with the blessing of Starboard, which shows an impressive level of mutual respect.
With eight years of SUP riding under his belt, Scott can hold his own amongst the SUP surfers. He’s even managed to win a SUP State Round against the Jakovich brothers. If you’re near good waves in WA, chances are you’ll probably spot Scott – just doing a bit of ‘testing’.
SMIK SUP Beginner Boards
The SMIK SUP boards are refreshing in their appearance. They have a construction and finish quality that is outstanding for their price point.
SMIK E-Sea Rider is a basic entry level SUP board that will suit most families. It’s a wide, stable board that feels light for its price, is well constructed and can progress you to riding small waves. It comes in two colour options and three sizes so you can pretty well find a great first SUP board within the SMIK range. The choices on offer are:
• E-Sea Rider Colour options – yellow/blue or deep purple/blue
• E-Sea Rider Size options – 9’7″, 10’3″ and 10’9
The 9’7″ will suit entry level riders up to 80kg. It is a good choice for lighter riders who don’t feel confident on the water, as the width gives great stability.
The 10’3″ is better suited for those in the 80 – 100kg weight range or those who want a board for the whole family. It’s easy to handle and also stable enough to throw the kids or your dog on with you.
The 10’9″ is great for people over 100kg or families who want to have more than one child on the board with you.
SMIK are also a good choice for entry level his and her boards. You can each choose the colour you like and the size that suits!
SMIK Surf SUPs
There’s not many people around with more experience and credentials to design surf SUPs. Anyone who knows owner/designer Scotty McKercher, knows this is what he lives for.
Spitfire – High Performance Advanced Riders
The Spitfire is built to perform as close as possible to shortboard surfing. It’s the high performance surf SUP in the SMIK range.
If you want to pull into barrels and do critical surf moves, this is definitely the board for you. Scotty regularly rides the Spitfire in the sucky beach breaks and powerful reef breaks of Margaret River. Quite simply, it shreds and can handle waves of any size.
It comes in four sizes for different weight riders.
• 8’2 x 27.5 for riders 65-85kg
• 8’3 x 29.5 for 75-90kg
• 8’8 x 31.5 for 85-105kg
• 9’5 x 32 for 90-115kg.
SMIK Longboard Surf SUPs
Short Mac – Intermediate riders moving towards advanced
This is the perfect step down board for the rider who might want to progress towards the Spitfire but isn’t quite ready yet. It sits between the longer surf SUPs and the Spitfire.
The Short Mac has parallel rails which give it great drive and speed. The squared nose makes it easy to paddle for it’s size. And the pulled in tail gives the board a good carving ability and a really responsive feel. At 8’7 x 29.5, it still has good stability. The width is carried through a good section of the board,.
