The 12’6” TR series has been Amundson's most popular board for several seasons, and for good reason, 12’6” is a great size for most adults, giving them enough extra waterline to feel the increased speed and glide. Amundson's designers have implemented a new underwater shape in the nose area. The deep sharp Vee has been replaced by a fuller, more rounded cross-section. This helps send more water under the board to initiate planing, as opposed to out to the sides or up in the air and onto the deck. The raised foredeck sheds water, and the slightly recessed cockpit keeps your center of gravity low, while making for a comfortable standing area. The boards feature our large easy-carry handle and deck inserts for stowing a life-jacket or bag.
For 2015 Amundson has two completely new shapes, one at 27” wide, and one at 29” wide. Each is designed for a certain paddler size and skill range. The 12’6” TR-27 is a narrower version, at 27 inches wide and 217 liters, it is sized to fit lighter paddlers who don’t need the extra width for stability. For their size, it will have the same combination of speed and stability as the TR-29 for larger paddlers, but more tuned to their geometry because it has the added benefit of allowing the paddle stroke to be closer in line with their narrow shoulders. The narrow width of the TR-27 also makes it slightly faster, for any size advanced riders heading out on the race course. It is built in our Rhino-Lite technology, which is the best combination of weight, durability, and value on the water.

Rhino-Lite technology starts with a molded core of water tight fused cell foam. The core is wrapped with fiberglass cloth with extra material on the rails and a thin veneer of wood on the deck to prevent heel dents. The board is placed in a heated vacuum mold, with expanding epoxy resin. The heat and expanding pressure ensures that the resin completely laminates the skin to the core, creating a light and tough board that is resistant to dings and delamination. Rhino-Lite technology is the best combination of weight, durability, and value on the market.
