Tom Carroll Paddle Surf Long Grain CV SUP
The TC Paddle Surf Long Grain CV SUP is designed to encourage a longboard style and approach to riding waves.
DESIGN: Inspired by Tom Carroll’s passion for walking up and down a longboard in small clean waves, the overall design focuses on more efficient water flow over a relatively large surface area. By doing this we offer high volume stability without sacrificing speed and flow.
CONTOURS: The unique bottom contours reduce rail volume and drag without sacrificing stability under paddle power. The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose while also reducing slapping. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail which provides ample turning abilities and prevents rail-to-rail sticking, especially in uneven, choppy conditions and when driving through unpredictable wave zones. A slight bevel on the underside of the rail enhances trim sensitivity on the wave face.
ROCKER: Lower entry rocker and long gradual curves allow this board to maintain acceleration and incredible flow on any size wave. The rocker has also been designed to allow freedom of movement from the back turning zone right up to the nose.
FINS: Dynamic 2 + 1 set up comes with the new FCS II TC SUP side fins and a custom 8” TC Paddle Surf single fin. Tom prefers to set the larger centre fin forward in the box to allow for looseness off the tail.
PERFORMANCE: The 11’0″ delivers a longboard feel and a solid connection to the wave face. This board is perfectly suited to the recreational small wave surfer, and the high volume will also suit the estuary, inlet, and flat-water adventurer. The 10’4″ also delivers a longboard feel, but offers more agility and freedom to maneuver easily on a wave. This board will also serve as a great cross-trainer by transitioning seamlessly from the surf to flat water.
Approx board weights: 10’4: 11.3kg/24.9lbs | 11’0: 13.1kg/28.9lbs
SpecificationsNOTE: rider weight is based on board volume and intermediate rider skill level.

Carbon Vector (CV) construction delivers unmatched performance by harnessing the flex characteristics of epoxy and the strength of carbon. CV combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a distinctive carbon fiber webbing, (positioned on the bottom and around the rails).
The carbon fiber webbing serves to evenly distribute tension across the entire surface area of the board to produce a lively, yet controlled flex pattern with remarkable memory recall. The biaxial fiberglass on the deck serves to add strength and also help prevent delaminating. CV boards feel fast, light and highly responsive in all conditions.
Created by GSI to compliment a range of board models and designs, this construction has proven to have superior flex properties over our other board technologies by up to 20%.
