Durability, stability and affordability – Neptune 12ft Race/Tourer review

SUP Mag UK

Neptune SUPs 12ft Race/Tourer is a distinct looking beast with its slightly upturned nose – something that goes against current race/touring board thinking. As usual the bamboo veneer finish is distinctive of the brand and gives a uniquely identifiable trait.

Neptune SUPs 12.6ft Race/Tourer SUP Mag UK review

While not the lightest stick it’s pretty easy to transport to the put in. During the testing conditions were absolutely brass monkeys and the last thing we wanted was a dunking! Fortunately the 12ft’s stability is such that this wouldn’t be happening. Staying true to the touring/race hybrid concept the Neptune will keep all but the most clumsy footed rider from falling seaward. A composed nature permeates through every session and makes for a relaxing ride. This isn’t to say paddlers can’t step it up – on the contrary moderate downwinders are super fun. The pronounced nose rides high of rollers and stops any unwanted ‘slamming’ into the back of swells.
