DC (Dale Chapman) and Chris Chamberlain walk us through Travis Grant’s Molokai 2 Oahu-winning stand up paddle board, the first unlimited production board to win the M2O.
DC is the shaper and was also on Travis’ support boat for the 5+ hours across the M2O’s Channel of Bones.
Travis’ NSP M2O Board Dimensions:
17’10” x 24.5″ wide unlimited board was designed by Travis Grant and Alain Teurquetil and shaped by DC for NSP. It has a progressive rocker, designed to get up and over the waves, with edge on the rail through the back and rounded more forgiving rails throughout (rolled bottom that Travis likes from his OC-1 background). There are no concaves.
There’s a super interesting section where they discuss Travis’ decision to take two waves into the finish on a board of this size.
