Other than MSL 800, what sets the Sport+ apart from the regular 12’6″ Sport is the thickness of the drop stitch. The Sport+ is 4.75″ thick so it is better suited to lighter weight paddles.

Its thinner, sleek and streamlined shape facilitates effortless glide and maneuverability, while the updated rocker profile enhances tracking and stability. Whether you’re cruising on calm lakes or tackling choppy ocean waves, this board delivers consistent performance and control for paddlers of all levels.
