Yster SUP and Martin Hunter Intro New Race Board

With SUP riders embracing a more conscious approach to the sport and in search of personalized experiences, enhanced performance and yes – killer designs! – custom boards are on the rise. To explore this subject further TotalSUP had a unique opportunity to catch up with Australian-born and now Sweden-based, Martin Hunter, Swedish SUP Sprint Champion and two-time Olympian and multiple World Championship medalist in canoeing, and Per Vallbo, engineer, founder and CEO of Yster SUP, a Swedish premium SUP brand that is now moving into SUP racing market. They have recently collaborated on developing a new design of a SUP racing board.

Advanced 3D modelling, iterative prototyping and extensive testing have materialized in a completely new core concept of the Yster Naked Carbon series of boards (14’x 21.5”, 14’x 24” and 14’x 26”) designed to help riders find sweet spots in their paddling technique.
