Product Description

The 2016 Vex Profusion Carbon Pro Series has been dramatically improved in comparison with its predecessor. The Vex is by far our most refined and responsive stand up paddleboard thus far. The new 2016 Vex offers increased turning performance and heightened acceleration, while maintaining stability and wave catching ease. The tail has been significantly refined and pulled into a rounded/squash tail, allowing for even tighter turns. The rails have been refined through the nose for greater speed and drive through rail transitions and bottom turns.

These solid performance stand up paddleboards have taken the Australian market by storm and are comparative to other boards 3 times their price, both in strength and performance. There were more Atlantis stand up paddleboards sold last year in Australia than any other SUP, which cements the fact that these boards are industry leaders and solidifies that their quality is indisputable. The new 2016 Atlantis “Vex profusion” PVC/Carbon SUPs are raising the bar and promise to deliver outstanding performance.

  1. Better than expected.

    Posted by HG on 6th Oct 2016

    Was planning on demoing a few boards at Merimbula before getting a new one but the SWH sale started and it was too tempting not to grab one. Arrived no hassles a few days after order and have now had 4 surfs on the board in varying conditions. Have to say pretty happy so far, pretty stable, paddles well and catches waves easily enough. Surfs well and feels pretty positive underfoot. Replacing the stock fins with a quad set is the only change I've made so far and overall impression is good.
    Stats are 5'8" and just over 90kgs in wetsuit.

  2. Better again - Another Wave machine

    Posted by Sundra on 5th Aug 2016

    I have upgraded from the old 2013 Vex profusion 8.8, so already familiar with the excellent surf ability and build quality of these boards. The new 8.6 is lighter and distinctly more manoeuvrable on a wave. I am (60 Kg) riding with the same quad set - Shapers Ruben Rox front with SX Rears ( in fact I found the shapers Spectrum Driver - meduim Set identical). At my weight, this board is the ideal balance for solid stability for those long paddles to the outer breaks and the ability to surf anything from knee to overhead (2 M). Helpful Service, delivery to Sydney , and flexibility to package options, was also excellent.

  3. A board that stands the test of time!

    I've been riding the 8' carbon pro for over a year now. i weigh 80kg. It's my go to board whenever the conditions are a bit better than 2-3 foot slop. (I ride the Bam Bam then). In quad set up the carbon pro handles just about anything up to 6' surf. Highly responsive, fast, light and durable. I will be up grading next year when the 2017 model comes out. Can't fault it except you will need to buy some good shapers fins.

  4. Great board, very responsive!

    Posted by Rick on 5th Apr 2016

    I am 6' and 96-98 kg and intermediate skill on a good day. Its a bit unstable in choppy conditions but comes alive when on a wave, which is the trade off for riding a smaller board. Turns really well off the fins and if you have enough speed you can really dig the rail in. I can't ride a shortboard due to injury at the moment, but this is as close to riding a shortboard as it gets and it goes better than any mal I've been on! Very happy with the purchase! Now I'm wondering if I could get down to the 8'?

  5. Strong Light well balanced Sup

    Posted by Stece on 12th Mar 2016

    If you're after a strong, light, responsive performance wave board for a great price I thoroughly recommend the Carbon Vex Profusion Pro . I am 68kg & have the 8'6, & find it quite stable except in the most choppy conditions. It drives nicely off the rail, holds speed through drawn out cutbacks & has excellent hold on steep takeoffs & in the bowl. It has a good quality build but I'm not sure of the long term durability of the matt finish paint job over the epoxy, but it has held up to normal everyday use with no problems at all: 3 months of use sees no dents & only some minor paint scratches where it was washed onto dry reef. A great one board quiver!

  6. Love It!!

    Great board!
    I'm 84kg and have a 9' board and I have no troubles on this thing in anything from 3' to 6.
    For this price you can't go wrong.
