Boardworks Introduces Newly Redesigned Eradicator for Endurance Paddling

July 25, 2016

Full carbon design minimizes weight and increases speed

CARLSBAD, Calif. (July 25, 2016) – Boardworks, a leader in innovative and award-winning surfboards and standup paddle (SUP) boards, paddles, and accessories, today unveiled its redesigned Eradicator 12’6 and 14’ boards for advanced paddlers and elite racers.

“The Eradicator is a premium competitive SUP board for distance and endurance paddling,” said Gretchen Gamble, marketing director for Boardworks. “We fine-tuned the design and optimized the full carbon construction to make it fast, light and stiff for the ultimate in performance.”

Today’s elite racers demand fast and versatile race performance—and the lightweight, high-performance Eradicator exceeds expectations with phenomenal and efficient acceleration. It excels in a variety of conditions from flat water to ocean, downwind and in and out of surf. The board features increased volume in the foredeck for more waterline engagement and speed in flat water while forward fin placement facilitates fast turns and optimal maneuverability in surf.

Each board features a unique white and orange painted color scheme that shields the carbon fiber construction from the sun to minimize heat absorption. The paint is sanded down to minimize the incremental added weight, giving each board a unique look. A matte finish minimizes glare and the appearance of light scratches. Other features include ergonomic finger well, self-regulating vent plug and a tool-less FCS Connect touring fin.

The Eradicator 12’6” is $2,199 and the Eradicator 14’ is $2,499. Both sizes launch to retailers in November 2016.
