Join the evolution of Blue Planet. These all new models combine our most advanced shapes, construction and graphics.
The 14' x 28" x 6.2" x 278 Liter, Weight 24 Lbs, Bump Rider is the latest and most refined version of our Molokai Race proven downwind rocket. The rocker, bottom contours and rails work together to catch long glides at high speed with minimum effort. The Bump Rider is most comfortable catching and riding open ocean swells and comfortable and predictable is fast. The 28" width and flat deck make it much easier to control and get back up on than a narrow dugout race board.
Construction: SMART Carbon (Sandwich Molded Active Response Technology) uses a proprietary carbon layup to achieve strength, rigidity and a responsive, snappy flex at very light weight. The lightweight EPS core is fully sandwich wrapped with high density foam resulting in an excellent strength to weight ratio. Available colors are blue and red with grey racing stripes. High quality deck pad with comfortable yet very grippy yet traction in the standing areas.
The first model of the 14' Bump Rider came out in 2011, here is a bit of history of the versions over the years:

|Race proven shapes: Greg Pavao and Robert Stehlik won their age division and came in 3rd overall two man team at the 2013 Molokai to Oahu Race on the 14' x 28" Blue Planet Bump Rider model. The planing hull design make it a fast and stable board in downwind conditions.
|Jeff Chang finishes the 2014 Molokai race on the latest version of the 14' x 28" Blue Planet Bump Rider. He not only finishes first in his age group but his time of 5:23 is also faster than all other paddlers over 50, including those on unlimited boards. Well done Jeff!
