Introducing The RP-17′-CAT Unlimited

June 6th, 2014


The RP-17′-CAT Unlimited has been something we have wanted to build for a few years now.  Although the CAT SUP is nothing new, it is still something you don’t see all the time.   For Questions regarding the RP-17-CAT contact Taylor – Custom@rivierapaddlesurf.com


The RP-17 CAT is very efficient, incredibly stable, Tracks straight, and was designed for flatwater.

Riviera RP-19.7-UL – AKA The GNARWAHL

June 6th, 2014

Introducing the Riviera RP-19.7-UL (Unlimited)…

Ninteen Feet Seven Inches of Carbon Fiber, EPS Foam,  and Epoxy for when Speed Matters.  Tipping the scales at 25Lbs, the RP-UL is in the running for the fastest SUP on the water.  Look for this Board in the future to be piloted by Rob Rojas and Thomas Maximus…

Rob Rojas, Had this to say of the RP-19.7-UL

“I christen thee “Gnarwahl”. I know the correct spelling is Narwhal but I have my reasons. Many say the Narwhal is the unicorn of the sea, but I say the Unicorn is the Narwhal of fairy tail land. There are children’s books about unicorns but very few about narwhals you know why? Because Narwhals are bada$$!!! Thank you Riviera Paddlesurf for creating “The Gnarwahl.” Unleash your inner DORK!!!”  –  Rob Rojas

2014 Riviera Raceboards!

March 20th, 2014


“Stop Training! Race Riviera…”

We are very excited about the 2014 line of Raceboards.  We will be offering the RP-12’6″ in 26″& 28″ widths, as well as the RP-14 in 25″ and 27″ widths.

The Riviera Paddlesurf… “RP” Series Raceboards are the product of years of SUP Raceboard Design and Testing.  Believe us when we say “We have tried almost everything”. The ideal blend of Sprint Speed and Glide/Efficiency is what we have been working to achieve, and we are confident that the 2014 RP Series Raceboards do it best…Granted the 2015 RP’s will do it even better, and so on.

To achieve this blend we have developed a rocker that picks up on any trace of bump, and cuts through the water efficiently. The outline spreads water steadily, with efficiency and stability in mind. The mild cockpit area gets your feet closer to the water, for stability, and extra torque in your stroke. Finally, the pronounced spine on the deck Channels water off quickly for a dry, light feel when powering into the chop.
Construction Note:
Performance vs. Durability – It’s a balancing act, and we are weighing in a bit heavier on the performance side of the scale with the RP-Series Raceboards.

Congrats to Riviera team rider Ryan Helm for his performance in both the Surf contest and Races this past weekend in Sayulita, Mexico…  Ryan took second Place in both the Surf Race, and the Distance race on his RP-12’6″ raceboard.   He went on to win the SUP Surf contest on the Double Ended 8′ Door!!!  Way to go Ryan!  Ryan is very passionate about the door design like we are, and we see a bright future for the DOOR…  It enables you to go shorter and narrower than you ever thought possible with no lack of performance.

Riviera Custom Boards

December 24th, 2013


No, it’s not a skimboard, it is Brandon and Taylor Rambo’s new custom US made SUP Surfboard…  7’2 x 24″.  The Shape is a cross between the Machete, and the NUGGET.  ”The thing works insane on steep fast beachbreak, is superlight at 9.8Lbs, and as you can imagine is a bit of a chore to stand on.  For me at 165Lbs, it is about as low volume as I can go…  It floats me just barely, but in the pursuit of the highest performance SUP surfboard, this is where we are right now.” – Taylor Rambo


Here are a few new custom SUP Surfboards…  The 3 are slight variations of the Machete which is our high performance model.  The one with 10 fins and shaped like a wakeboard is a custom DOOR for Ryan Helm…  Don’t right it off just yet, at 8′ x 26″ this board is built to be ridden finless or with small fins for doing shuvits and spins, but still surf well in between spins and airs…
