Stand Up Paddle Radio Show.

Hear how Tim got the job of being the designer the Hovie SUP “Comet” race board. He tells us the concept of the extra wide tail, wetted surface, drag, lift and stability as opposed to a pintail design. Tim gives us a complete physics lesson on what makes a board go fast! Tim has worked on the design of the Play Station a record breaking maxi cat in 2002/03 30-40′ sailboats . He tells us how sailboats and race boards share designs. Tim looks at SUP boards as small boats. The hydrodynamic forces power versus drag is the focus of creating speed for both types of vessels. Always want to minimize the drag and maximize the ability for the paddler to put power into the board
