Source 8'5 Paulownia (Limited Edition surf series)
8'5 x 31'' x 4''
259 cm x 79 cm x 10 cm
Our range of Source boards are 100% surf-oriented, yet they still offer excellent buoyancy and stability. Our objective with the Source LTD was to create a pure SUP surfboard that is light, solid and super responsive in the surf without sacrificing accessibility.
To achieve this, the shape has been revised in its entirety. The new deck is flatter and the distribution of volume from front to back has been key to achieving the really impressive stability for a board of this type. The rails, tail and nose have been reworked to cut through the water more easily and allow short, aggressive turns and fast acceleration in top and bottom turns. If you want a "pure surfing" shortboard-style SUP, that isn't overly technical to ride: this is the board for you!
Suitable for a wide variety of wave conditions.
A brand new addition to the Source range; the Source 8'5 Paulownia comes with a stunning wood and tinted resin epoxy finish.
The 8'5 model is designed for intermediate riders weighing up to 75 kg with some experience or for 75+ kg if you have a more advanced level.
Our years of experience shaping and making boards have enabled us to to improve the overall board design in terms of weight and especially board solidity.
PVC + Paulownia double sandwich construction
Using a lighter EPS HD foam has enabled us to reduce the weight of this board by 800 grammes. The bamboo sandwich layer has also been modified, it's now thicker (increased from 0,6 to 0,8 mm) which makes the board more rigid under your feet and more solid throughout.
We've also added an extra layer of 6oz glass across the deck of the board to make it even more robust.
The board comes equipped with a set of 5 fiberglass quad fins (standard Future) + a 6.5" central fin and can be ridden as a 2+1 or a quad.
