SUP Paddleboards / Stand-Up-Paddleboards
The Samos stand up paddle board from Fatyak is a brilliant board for all abilities. Stable, robust and available in a range of great colours it will ensure all paddlers will all have an enjoyable time.
Samos SUP is a rotationally moulded stand up paddle board, born
to bring something new to the exploding SUP arena. Traditionally,
epoxy and composite boards are the natural choice, although with
the growing adoption of inflatable paddle boards, we wanted to
bring a fresh new alternative to the market.
We had two main priorities in creating the Samos. Firstly, to combat some traditional problems found in rotationally moulded boards. Second, to create a feel that was comparable to more expensive options on the market, suitable for beginner to intermediate level paddlers. Typically, rotationally-moulded paddle boards have been problematic due to their evolution from a kayak design, making them impractical in shape and weight; often in excess of 25KG.
The innovative design of the Samos targets both these problems in one. The unique wishbone features on the Samos works by acting against the natural yarding as the paddler strokes. This keeps the nose pointing straight; splitting below the deck to give support for a natural stance. In doing so, this has allowed us to produce a much thinner board than many standard rotationally-moulded boards. This means at 20KG the Samos is one of the lightest rotationally moulded stand up paddle boards on the market! However, the Samos still manages to boast an all-rounder profile. This makes it great for all applications from day play, and exploring, to fitness and fun on the waves.
Samos includes a wide set of features as standard:
Carry handle grips and deck area,
Drain plug, bottle holder and paddle.
An all-rounder fin, and custom 10.5? fin box accepting all standard fins. So changing your fin is easy!
Front bungee storage
Free Mizu stainless steel water bottle with every purchase!
As always, you can be safe in the knowledge that its manufactured to Fatyaks high quality rotational moulding standards. This means no seams and no joints. As well as this, the Samos SUP is manufactured using high grade, high density UV stabilised polyethylene. Made in accordance with BS7852 as well as our own high standard procedures, in Somerset, England.
We are extremely proud to be retailers of the excellent range of O'Shea inflatable SUP Paddleboards. All OShea SUP Boards are CAD designed by surf legend Farrel OShea and draw on his 30+ years of board shaping experience.
O'Shea SUPs are made from Korean Mirasol drop stitch, which is widely regarded as the best performing SUP core construction that money can buy. This 4.75" thick drop stitch fabric is not unique to O'Shea but it is usually only found on the very top boards costing considerably more. This extra thickness (20% thicker than most) makes the structure approx 35% stiffer than nearly every other board both longitudinally and tortionally, which in turn leads to superior performance and stability that is second to none.
O'Shea SUP Paddleboards are extremely hard wearing thanks to the 1000D PVC with double rail lap, which is better than most other premium or high end boards on the market. The vivid colourways also enable you to be seen and stay safe out on the water.
O'Shea SUPs love being pumped up to 15-20 psi but still perform brilliantly at lower volumes of around 12-15 psi. This means that they can be pumped up perfectly well without too much effort via the high volume pump supplied with each package.
In our opinion, O'Shea SUPs offer the best blend of performance versus price and are therefore the best option for most recreational paddleboarders. We use them extensively at our own watersports centre and they are universally praised by everyone that uses them. In fact they are so good that even our Senior Instructor has bought one, which is high praise indeed.
