Testing out the new Dean Board  LDR14


Richard Klapper and I recently took out his new 14' x 25" Dean Watersports LDR 14 carbon race board for test paddle.  For comparison it is laid out beside my 14' x 25" HovieSUP Comet.  The Dean is definitely more stable and has a slight bit more nose and tail rocker, the HovieSUP Comet is lighter weight and distinctly more rounded bottom from side to side, making it very tippy.   I think this new board is pretty nice... his boards are getting better and this is one of his newest ones I believe, made just month or two ago. This one has a much narrower tail end than his previous boards.  It cuts through the water very smoothly, seems to be built well.  I have two of his older boards and this one is much nicer. More paddle boarding adventures with Stand and Paddle. Click on the thumbnails below for a full gallery of photos of the Dean Watersports LDR14 along side the custom Hovie Comet.

Would you like to give your opinion and observations on a particular SUP?  Send me the info, with as many details as possible and a couple of photos if possible, and I will post it and give you proper credit.  Your post might also make some of our various social media outlets also, so send your info in to help get your thoughts out to the SUP community.
