Product Description

Based off our best selling Classic Straight Up board, this all-around board is aimed towards new SUP adventurers.

The progressive rocker creates a fun ride on any water. And being a tad narrower and shorter than the Rival Hoss, the smaller board size of the Rival Straight Up is ideal for those looking for a faster ride and more maneuverable board.

It is also optimal for our smaller all-around riders. Fusion Construction™ makes this board extremely lightweight, durable, and easy to transport. And we take the preparation work out of it, offering our Fusion Construction boards in a straight-to-water package.

Grab the Rival Straight Up and get on the water.

Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!


Progressive Rocker
The Rival Straight Up has a progressive rocker that is designed to be playful in the waves and snappy along the river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle is reasonably flat, and the tail rocker gives you quick directional control, striking a balance between the sportiness of the full rocker and the speed of glide rocker.
