10'6 WIND AIR

Ref. 101981

Availability: In stock

SUP is a great sport for calm weather, but when the wind gets up most people are putting their paddles down…. The Wind Air 10’6 enables you to stay out on the water, thanks to its specially designed fittings, allowing you to convert your board into a windsurfer.

Whether you’re in SUP or windsurf mode, its shape means you can get great performance in a wide variety of conditions, from gentle excursions on the flat to surfing small waves. It’s aimed at beginner riders weighing up to 90kg. To enable it for windsurfing it comes with a centre fin for getting back upwind, and with a mast foot insert where you can fit your sail rig. Like all the Oxbow inflatable SUPs it comes with lateral plus front and rear carry handles, two stainless steel attachment points (rear for leash, front for towing) and with a large, “Diamond Groove” foam pad giving great comfort and efficient grip. There’s also an elasticated attachment system on the front section enabling you to safely carry equipment.

Oxbow AIR inflatable paddleboards feature ultra-light, durable and extremely rigid construction for performance typically found only in rigid boards. By adding a non-stretch stringer along the top and bottom center line together with double layer rail construction we’ve reduced weight, dramatically increased rigidity and improved ease of re-rolling and packing the board after use. The AIR models inflate to a rigid 15psi and come with an oversize wheeled backpack for ease of transport and storage, rugged two-way pump with gauge, packing straps, removable center fin with easy on/off thumb screw, repair kit and valve wrench.

Focus

 

SUP is great on calm days, but when the wind picks up most people put the paddle down. Not so with the WIND series of paddleboards, designed to keep you out on the water on windy days with features that convert your paddleboard to a windsurfer. There are three boards to choose from in the WIND series: 10’6 & 11’6 Performer (based on our best-selling Performer models) and the 10’6 SUP AIR.

 

Particularly long and specifically shaped for multi-purpose navigation, the Oxbow SUP Wind boards offer the advantage of being able to double-up as windsurf boards in light wind conditions. Their large volume and width make them also suitable for beginners. The 11'6, 10'6 and 10'6 Air SUP Wind boards offer therefore the extra appeal of a dual-program.

SUP AIR - INFLATABLE BOARDS
Ultra-Light, Impressively Rigid, Highly Durable – We’ve revolutionized our SUP AIR construction to optimize rigidity, reduce weight and maintain shape control (via the rocker profile) and durability. An ultra high-density Dyneema® Stringer belt wraps the board tip to tail for added rigidity. Double layer rails maximize durability where needed most and helps to maintain shape. A single layer of drop-stitch material keeps the board extremely lightweight.

KEY FEATURES:
• Ultra-light construction = easy to carry.
• Top & Bottom stringer improves stiffness vs. traditional inflatables.
• Reinforcements along the rails give the board very efficient protection against abrasion
• Performer 10’6 Board : Embossed EVA deck pad is plush and comfortable while offering excellent traction.
• Wing 11’ : Diamond grip EVA pad for added traction and comfort.

User guide:

Points to be respected to maximize the lifespan of your BIC SUP Air boards :
• Do not exceed the maximum recommended inflation pressure.
• Deflate the board by at least 5 PSI when not in use but exposed to full sun/hot temperatures.
• Re-inflate and check the pressure before returning to the water.
• Check the tightness of the valve regularly, using the tool supplied with the board, and re-tighten when necessary.
• Don’t carry the board on top of your car/vehicle when inflated.
• Rinse your board down regularly with tap water, and especially when putting it away for winter etc., paying particular attention to the valve.
• Avoid rolling your board too tightly when putting it away in its bag after use.
• During winter, keep your board very slightly inflated, store it flat, out of direct sunlight and in temperatures not lower than 0°C.

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.

The early 2000s saw the emergence and incredible growth of Stand Up Paddle, a new sport born from the convergence of these waves of enthusiasm. Oxbow has lent its support and experience to many top riders and events that have given visibility and an enduring legacy to the sport, including 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.
