The O'shea HP 9'8 is a new look for 2018, the pre-laminated contruction used makes for a lighter board than the HD construction. This has obvious benefits when packed into the smaller back pack. Not to mention the funky Orange color scheme

_ O’Shea boards are made exclusively from Korean “Mirasol“ drop stitch, which is considered the Rolls Royce of Isup core fabric. It’s quality that lasts and the best that money can buy.
_ 1000D PVC outer, full double layer rail lap makes a trouble free belt & braces construction.
_ O’Shea “premium HD and premium HP“ are the only constructions we approve and a constant in all our boards.
_ Longitudinally and torsionally (often neglected) stiffer construction, means our boards maintain both shape & performance characteristics.
_ We think Yellow is the safest yet fun colourway, be seen and stay safe on river, lake or ocean. Ask any old bouy and he’ll tell you!
_ Our PVC outer skin is anti UV, reducing the effect of the suns harmful rays. Keeping the board NOT ONLY looking good for longer but also maintaining its residual value.
_ O’Shea boards can be typically used at lower pressures, 13 to the recommended 15 psi. Pressures easily achievable by even the light weight riders with any pump.
_ Heavy duty front towing and rear leash D-Rings.
_ The finest quality diamond grooved and buffed deck pad, provide the best grip with either bare feet or boots available.
_ RMS – removable fin systems throughout. The strongest fin box on the market!
_ O’Shea boards are CAD designed and tested by Farrel O’Shea, utilising over 35 years of personal hydrodynamic experience.
