Vanhunks Impi Premium Epoxy SUP: It’s Not The Favorite For No Reason
Vanhunks’ Impi epoxy stand up paddle board is a firm favorite amongst the crowd due to Impi’s stability, generous volume, and beautiful rail and rocker lines. The Impi stand up paddle board contains a single-to-double concave through the tail and the variable fin setup configuration.
Our Impi stand up paddle board features a wide outline and squash tail, with a full nose shape for incredible stability – especially for a board of this length.
Designed for small to average sized waves, the Impi stand up paddle board has an increased tail rocker and the single-to-double concave makes for easy carving down the line. Impi has a wide stable stand up paddle board design that performs with unbelievable ease in surf conditions.
Impi’s volume is in the center of the stand up paddle board, giving you stability in choppy conditions, while Impi’s real beauty is in the rail and rocker line. The moment you take off on the wave and shift your weight to the tail of the stand up paddle board, the surf rail takes control for carving. The double concave through the tail accelerates the water into two streams through the fins, for a smooth edge-to-edge transition. The combination results in a smooth, well-balanced surf.
Vanhunks Impi is versatile too, with the single-to-double concave making Impi adaptable to everything, even flatwater cruising. Impi is a superb well-rounded board for most riders and delivers versatility you will never outgrow.
The single to double concave utilises the strengths of each concave design. The double concave in the rear loosens up the board, and the single concave in the front provides a good planing surface for drive. The double concave will channel the water into two streams through the fins and out the tail. Smooth edge to edge transitioning adds fluidity to wave riding.
Epoxies out-perform most other resin types in terms of mechanical properties and resistance to environmental degradation Epoxy constructions stand for durability, low porosity and strong bond strength.
We are proactively reaching out to provide new and improved products. This quality initiative will ensure customers can use our products to their utmost satisfaction and comfort. The handle is moulded to take the shape of your hand and allows for easy carrying of your SUP.
The squash tail is a commonly used tail shape on modern surfboards. The design allows for a stable board, and a manoeuvrable ride, suitable for both small and overhead waves.
We use Futures Fins with all our Directional-, Surf- and SUP boards.
EPS-Foam Is lightweight beaded foam used in the production of epoxy surfboards. We use only the best EPS density foam for the core of our boards. The EPS foam forms the core of the board and then wrapped inside the epoxy sandwich construction.
The thruster setup is versatile and stable in a broad range of conditions. It combines stability, drive and manoeuvrability and has been one of the favourite fin configurations of the past quarter century.
The quad fin setup makes for more drive through turns and increased speed down the line. It allows for a stable rail to rail riding at high speeds.
SELECT THE CORRECT BOARD BASED ON your skill level and weight…
THIS CHART IS OUR RECOMMENDED BOARD VOLUMES BASED ON RIDER WEIGHT AND SKILL
As your skill level improve the board volumes decrease. The important thing to remember is that the important factor to consider when selecting a SUP is the liters of the board and not the length. Length becomes a consideration when surfing wave. Boards in excess of 10ft in the surf, tend to lift the tail and nosedive, so we highly recommend to not go beyond a 10ft board in the waves.
