The Racer X™ is the “brain-child” of master shaper designer and engineer, Dave Daum. Dave has been designing and building the finest performing and highest quality water craft for more than 40 years. The Racer X™ is a 100% Handcrafted American Made product. Producing your board in our own factory allows us to stand behind every board we make.
The deck has a flat paddling platform without ridges along the rails. This lets you enjoy a wide comfortable stance while paddling.
The bottom has a thick cutting bow that blends into a flat bottom. The board has with a fairly flat rocker and sharp edges to maximize stability with excellent water separation from the rails. Although not specifically classified as a race board, the Racer X models are more than competitive when used for racing.
The tail is wide and moderately thick allowing you to make sharp turns without having to slow down excessively. The wide/thick tail also adds to stability and enhances glide and downwind paddling.
The Racer X is a great touring and recreational board with ultra-high stability.
To keep the price down and maximize the value, all of the Racer X™ models are constructed using a layer of X-Cloth,™ conventional fiberglass fabric and high-modulus epoxy resins. These materials are far less expensive than carbon fiber. This gives you a finished board that is nearly the same weight as a carbon fiber board with slightly more flex. In most cases, the paddlers don't even notice the flex. The Racer X™ is an incredible value!
