Naish Introduces NISCO Racing
Posted on Thursday, 4 October 2012 08:45
Along with the release of their new 12’6″ ‘One’ Inflatable paddleboard, Naish introduced the NISCO (Naish International SUP Racing Organization) program. The concept is simple: Offer a grass-roots racing program that levels the field by offering the same board for everyone along with simple format events like sprints, short courses and relays.
That’s where the 12’6 One Inflatable fits in nicely. It’s a full size stock 12’6 board with enough volume to support paddlers over 200lbs but easy to maneuver for younger and smaller profiles. Might be the solution to bridge the competition gap and allow everyone to play together. Here’s how it works.
Competition & Event Format
The Naish ONE provides a stable, economical and competitive racing class for those that don’t want to spend huge amounts on equipment every year. You can measure your speed and abilities against other paddlers and not simply your equipment or check book against theirs.
Up to now, most SUP races have been long distance. One sees the competitors at the start or finish line with races lasting upwards of an hour. Although fun and a great discipline, watching long distance races can be a bit like watching the grass grow.
The new Naish ONE race formats are exciting, accessible, simple to set up and fun! All disciplines are easy to follow for spectators, the action is right there in front of everyone and it is thrilling to watch. There’s something for everyone, non-stop action on the water and events can happen in a day. Races can be local, regional, national and international.
