MIKE DAY – Many have said that Mike’s designs are “The fastest boards on the planet!” In 2008/2009 Mike’s progressive board concepts changed standup race board design parameters by introducing the first wave-piercing displacement hull paddleboard (based upon modern sailboat racing technology), a trend that has taken hold of almost all race manufacturers over the last 5 years.
Mike has designed some of the fastest SUP race boards on the market from his signature custom “MD Race” series, to Coreban’s new “Sonic” and “Phoenix,” and Lakeshore Paddleboard Company’s (LPC) “Stealth.”
Board designer, shaper, surfer, sailor, and competitive SUP paddler, Mike has also designed boards on the strictly pleasure (but also fast side of things): Adrift Tahoe’s “Tule” and “Knot 6.” In addition, he was instrumental in developing the construction of LPC’s UltraLight Betty Board and Wet Woody (at 19 and 21 lbs).
