Ideal as a dependable ‘one-board quiver’ with the speed you need to perform at your peak combined with the stability required to stay upright and focused on the task at hand. Featuring full carbon construction for lightweight, rigidity and maximum speed, the Racer series are competition-level boards that excel in flatwater, open ocean, beach and downwind race conditions. A full nose outline with lowered profile is ideal for penetrating chop in rough conditions as well as reducing cross-wind interference. The wide cockpit standing area allows for full use of the deck area and provides a ‘corrugated’ design for added rigidity and durability. Rail edges in the rear of the board are slightly rounded and combined with a relaxed tail rocker for minimal drag.
The Racer 12’6 is available in two widths (23.5’’ and 25.5’’), choice depending on your weight and skill level.
Tested and proven with professional racers Eric Terrien, Martin Vitry and The Teulade brothers and the Oxbow SUP design team.
High-Performance race boards for all-water conditions.
100% unidirectional carbon construction for rigidity and lightweight.
Moderate rocker profile for maximum glide while maintaining performance in chop and downwinders.

Our C-TEC “Custom”-Technology was developed to create the ultimate light weight, high-performance boards while maintaining good impact resistance. The success of this construction is due to the combination of Carbon-Innegra weave fabric* throughout the entire board together with a light weight low density foam core. A brushed white finish provides added durability, protection from overheating in the sun and reduced weight.
*Carbon-Innegra fabric blends the lightweight and stiffness of carbon with the durability and waterproof impact resistance of Innegra.

Oxbow is the name for a river that takes a meandering path on its journey to the ocean. Born in the mid-1980’s in Normandy, France, the Oxbow brand found inspiration in this idea – a desire to wander and an understanding that life is about the journey, not the destination. Choosing nature and the relationship with the ocean as it founding value, the brand puts emphasis on the quality of its products and the pleasure they bring, providing new twists on fashion with an unconventional approach.
Oxbow developed alongside some of watersports greatest athletes, such as Laird Hamilton, pioneer of tow-in surfing, kitesurf, foilsurfing and stand-up paddle surfing. For 30 years, Oxbow has never stopped exploring new territories and supporting riders in pursuit of their passions.
