2020 SIC Okeanos 12’6 x 29
Okeanos is named after the ancient Greek god of the sea and was further inspired by the NOAA Ship “Okeanos Explorer” located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The purpose of this ship is to systematically explore our largely unknown ocean intent on discovery and the advancement of knowledge.
This new series is focused on fitness, touring and voyaging the unknown, so thus the name was chosen. The Okeanos shares similar DNA with the RS series, however, this board is made for recreational paddling and journeying rather than racing. This board paddles with ease and is capable of maintaining a fast pace and efficient glide. The concave in the tail on the bottom helps to maintain a straighter line, higher average speed and greater glide. The nose chine in the bow softens the ride in rough waters and tracks extremely well into the wind and in cross-chop. The generous tail width and full, squared-up rails make this board extremely stable. The wide point in the front section of the board has been shifted forward which also adds to the overall stability. The board has been outfitted with numerous tie-downs and inserts to mount your cargo and accessories. Capable of running either a single fin or two thrusters (sold separately) for paddling in shallow or rocky waters and reducing the draft of the board. This also make beach landings easier and your board will sit stable and secure on the land. The Okeanos is a great fitness board, ready to take on journey and adventure.
