Looking at purchasing a 14' x 29"- 30" sup. Will be used for both flatwater now and some coastal/ offshore paddling in smaller conditions in the future. Currently on a 12'6" x 30" Naish Glide. Need the width for an unstable knee, holding off on a knee replacement.. 80kg. Intermediate ability. I have done some research and it seems that both of these sups might satisfy what I am looking for. Any suggestions regarding pros and cons of both these models would be appreciated.

Might be hard for to many to answer on the EVO 2.0 as its only due out in March and only a few hand full of people have ridden the one we have here on the goldy.
Someone from Brisbane might give some feed back as a bunch of crew tried it out last weekend and I thought we might have had some wrestling matches on the beach over whos turn it was next!!lol

I think also the ray and the EVO 2.0 are very different boards with the ray bit of a touring style board and the EVO 2.0 more a performance alround race board. Some could say that the EVO 2.0 is pretty much a flatdeck Storm boards as they do share alot of the same features when it comes to performance.

For what is worth I love the EVO 2.0 and think this board will be a board for many people wanting a unreal DW board that is still good in the flat but also something that can also catch waves and in the molded full sandwich construction it's also bomb proof!! I do own the brand but like to think I still give 100% honest advice.

More than happy to answer any questions you might have on the ONE as well.

Thanks Paul and Dave for the replies. The Naish Glide GTW 14' is definitely a consideration. Having checked the specs on it, I am hoping to get something a bit lighter than 14.2 kilos given I have to get it on the roof rack of a van with an annexe on one side and a bike rack on the other which are both around 2.10 metres high. I don't know the weight of the Ray or the Evo.2 but I was under the impression they were both lighter. I do like the sound of the of the Evo being bomb proof. Not sure if the race characteristics of the Evo would make it a bit more unstable? Probably will end up doing 60% flatwater and 40% coastal paddling.

weight wise on the EVO 2.0 is approx below.

Elite 14 x 28= 11kg Approx
Dynamic 14 x 28 = 12kg Approx
Hybrid 14 x 28 = 13.5kg approx

Price wise for the constructions are on the Aussie website but for what they are we feel they are very well priced now!!

Super stable, they do have a very slight roll as they run a pretty big double concave but this is also partly why these boards work so good!!

Hope this helps

At 80kg in my opinion I would go with the evo 28" wide.

I have the One Evo not the 2.0 and love it. In 14 x 28 it's very stable with a slight bit of intial roll that you get used to very quickly. The secondary stability is very good and it's also light. Been using it for just touring mainly but hoping to do a few social races soon.

Im 89kg 179cm and felt confident on the board within 5 minutes of paddling. It also feels quick in small chop.

I'm around 95-96 kilos and paddle the V1 - Evo 14 x 26. It's a fun board and im looking forward to checking out the 2.0 Evo 14 x 28". A bit more stability than the 26" would be good for distance paddling and down winding in mixed up conditions.

Paul, does the 2.0 have a bit more initial roll than the first version or is the difference more in the rocker?

Thanks.

It has no more roll than Evo 1 but is much more responsive in the way it rail steers. It is pretty much a flat deck Storm board in some ways that is much more user friendly when it comes to turning and any kind of surf work. Evo 2.0 is very good in the bumps and is still about the same speed as EVO 1 in the flat. Lots of changes on EVO 2.0 from EVO 1 because for us the EDGE 2.0 really crossed over into alot of what the EVO 1 could do on the flat water so it really opened us up to making the EVO 2.0 a much better board for real world conditions.

If you have a dodgy knee it will probably collapse under the size and weight of the Ray when you get it off the car!

Sounds a great way to go. We all need at least one can do it all board outside flat and racing.

Paul can you please put a link up to your Aussie website so I can look at the prices because I can't find it.
Thanks,
Dave.
