The parallel outline and wide tail gives amazing stability so the paddler is able to ride a narrower board than they might normally consider.
The shape is a mix of classic surfboard and the Tomo designs that give it a really wide range of use in varying conditions.
The board has a slight single concave and a deeper double between the fins that helps to channel the water and generate drive and control at speed.
The boards versatility is further increased by its fin setup options of tri- quad or 5 fins layouts and don’t forget nubsters if you want to try something new out.
The Infinity RNB is really aimed at the intermediate and experienced sup surfer who is looking to get serious performance from a board, but also have an eay to use board for rougher water.
We used the 8’5 RNB as a goto board in south coast waves and west coast of ireland conditions for a season and never wanted for more.
Infinity have been refining the construction of their boards for years and are proud to offer some of our most versatile and popular shapes in top of the line Carbon SUPspensionTech construction.
Extremely durable, light, and still has that custom flex in the ride. These look and feel like our custom shapes.
They also offer the same build quality in the PVC SUPspensionTech construction which make it that bit more affordable without compromise.
Level of paddler: intermediate to advanced sup surfer.
Disciplines: everything from the local 1ft beach break to over head bombs in cornwall and ireland.
Price /Quality ratio: this board will deliver performance to the wanting sup surfer for many years and you’ll love the feeling it gives in a huge range of conditions.
The Jimmy Lewis Supertech is a pure shredding machine for advanced paddlers only.
So many design traits go to making a wicked board but you have to add that little something else to make it really tear it up. The Jimmy Lewis Super Tech has everything in bundles and we got to experience it first hand in Lanzarote. I know we talk about testing the boards in the UK but this board deserved a bit more attention when we reviewed it.
The board is as always built in the standard super strong construction with all the fin boxes, handle, leash plug and GoPro mount embedded into high density foam then reinforced. You can splash out on carbon if you prefer, but for the extra money will you really get more back?
The artwork is unique. It was commissioned by Jimmy from the artist *****
The board has a squash tail that gives a serious loose feel and can easily break free if you fancy throwing a load of spray.
As with all of Jimmys performance boards they are thin with beautifully designed rocker profile and rails.
The fin setup can run as either quad or tri depending on your preference. I personally preferred the quad to get that bit more speed. The fins are super light honeycomb glass and have a lovely flex but when you’re at this level you may like to experiment – that’s your choice.
You can see that this board does not have a full deck pad so you’re gonna need to wax the board. A bit of a weird feeling at first but I soon got used to it. The only thing I will say is that I have put 2 small foot pads either side of the carry handle for when paddling out. I feel it allowed me to soften my feet, but I am a bigger bloke.
Quick is an understatement for this board. Either in tri or quad it is quick onto the wave then down the line speed is only limited by the riders ability. Some of our young team riders were banging this around like a tiny surfboard and carrying speed throughout.
I weigh in at 85kg dry so my preferred size is the 8’3 with 105 litres. Gives that bit more glide into a wave and is far less twitchy when paddling about. I did use the 90 litre model and paddled it fine but it becomes more tricky when handling any chop so don’t make it too hard for yourself. Bear in mind that all these boards are seriously maneuverable and performance oriented so you don’t have to go down in size unless your weight and skills can cope.
7’5 x 26.5 wide and 80 litres
7’10 x 27.5 wide and 90 litres
8’3 x 28.5 wide and 105 litres

If you are wanting something a bit more relaxed but still high performance then the Jimmy Lewis Worldwide delivers.
