If speed and distance are your thing, the Hobie Elite Race is your SUP. This carbon-fiber-and-glass 14-footer has good initial stability with tremendous glide. Thanks to its single concave bottom, which tapers into a speedy flat tail, the Elite accelerates quickly and holds its speed. This is a solid choice for a touring or expedition board, but she’s meant to race—and win. 12’6″ and 14′.
