Eric called me and wanted to demo the C4 ATB Stand Up . We met at PB for a several mile paddle. He was demoing the board from OUTSIDE HILTON HEAD . http://outsidehiltonhead.com/paddleboarding/equipment.html
Wanting to add the board for his quiver ,we both paddled and tried the board. I have demoed the board several times its a good flat water paddler, great for beginners and advanced riders. The deck is recessed for comfortable stance. The rails are thick boxy with a slight tuck under the edge with a sharp edge bottom. Tail is pulled in and the rocker is great for out East coast waves. Its a stable, buoyant,wide nosed board great for all to enjoy. I'll have to try it in the surf..
Designed by Dave Parmenter in cooperation with Charlie MacArthur (C-Mac), part surfboard, part whitewater kayak, part skateboard, the the C4 Waterman C-Mac ATB is the first stand-up surfboard exclusively designed for Training, Cruising; as well as creative and radical hot dogging in the new but growing sport of stand-up whitewater paddling. New ground is broken every day at C4 Waterman. DESIGN NOTES: The 10'6" ATB incorporates the proven design components of the 10-6, with extra tail rocker to help manage the downstream flow of a river.
