Canada's leading SUP brand. From the beginning Blu Wave’s mission has been to create quality boards that are not only beautiful in look, but ideally shaped for their intended purpose. We have a board for everyone and for every condition. Whether your jam is glassy morning paddles on your cottage lake, or charging hurricane swells in the Atlantic, we have you covered. From day 1, we’ve been committed to building. Building a brand, a company, a community and a family. We are family of paddlers, of surfers and of those that are drawn together by our connection to the water.

Overview

The Catalina 12.6 is a multi-functional touring board, designed for flat water cruising, training, touring, downwinding and recreational racing - suitable for all levels of ability from beginner to advanced and ideal for larger paddlers with its significant volume and stability. Multiple tie down points open up a world of possibilities for day tripping and multi-day expeditions along with threaded mounts for a variety of attachments (including rod holders).
An integrated GoPro mount is included at the nose of each board. Our new Timber Tech Construction, with natural birch and pine veneers, give the boards a natural look and providing superior durability in conjunction with our carbon fibre reinforced standing area and Kevlar reinforced rails and edges. Available in both Pine and Birch look veneer. Shapers Notes: Moderate rocker in the nose and tail provides lift and glide even in choppy conditions. Wide tail profile and generous max width (30") provides ample stability. Suited to beginners up to 230 lbs and advanced up to 260 lbs.

Blu Wave's Timber-tech Construction utilizes other wood veneers in place of bamboo in a compression molded sandwich construction. As in their EBS construction, carbon fibre deck reinforcement and Kevlar rails enhance durability and longevity of your board. Compression mold provides a light stronger board than traditional epoxy vacuum bag methods.
