Erik Antonson, designer for Portal Surf Designs, discusses the design objectives, construction and tech specs of the Portal Barra.
The First evolution of stand-up paddle surfboards were redesigned surf shapes made with greater volume to stand on. The Portal feels to me like like a next generation board built from first principles – leveraging all the unique attributes of stand-up surfing to harness speed, flow and truly dynamic turning. An order of magnitude better than anything I’ve tested or ridden. Kudos Erik, you can tell this was a labor of love. – Chris, Boston
