11' Performance Hybrid SUP. Red Veg graphic - Great SUP board for paddlesurf or on flat water. A very light-weight all-around performance paddleboard. 100% bamboo veneer on top and bottom provide lightweight, durable, and buoyant rigidity. This rigidity provides a more efficient energy transfer, and allows the use of super lightweight EPS foam, providing more buoyancy, speed, and control. Even beginning paddlers immediately feel the difference in Creed SUP versus other models, and never want to go back! Easier to handle in and out of the water. This is a top of the line SUP board that will outperform and outlast standard SUPs, and will surf as good as or better than any 11 foot SUP on the market, regardless of price. Auto release gore-valve, Go-Pro mount, and Creed SUP's innovative easy carry handle are all included. Only 24 lbs! Under-weighs our competitors 11 foot paddleboards by more than 6 lbs. “woa dude, that’s heavy”
"Red Veg" graphic- Burnt red and black swirls of outlined and non-outlined detail give this graphic a depth that reveals something new every time you ride your masterpiece.

I ordered my board on a Friday and they shipped it one hour later. Their shipping service was prompt and professional. My board arrived in mint condition. The Talon is a beautiful responsive board but stable enough to do a handstand on. I have only used it in flat water so far but plan to try surfing with it when Lake Michigan warms up! Great product and awesome service!!!!!!

THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PADDLEBOARD WE HAVE EVER SEEN. BECAUSE STEVE HAS NOT USED IT YET, IT IS A LITTLE HARD TO DO A ACCURATE REVIEW, BUT ON LOOKS ALONE IT GETS A +11. THE PICTURE DOESN'T EVEN DO IT JUSTICE. THANKS CREED.COM/RANDY

Excellent customer service. Board arrived in San Francisco Peninsula area spotless in only 3 days. Everybody, young and old, loves the way the board looks. Very stable while paddling in a lagoon just using center fin without side fins attached. Haven't tried in waves yet as I am still learning but will do so as the stability of the board is letting me progress rapidly.

I looked at every SUP company out there. What sold me on Creed was the quality you're getting for the price. And the amazing graphics are icing on the cake.

Dear Randy and the Creed SUP crew...
I was looking for a couple of months for an SUP, as we have a house on the water in Lake Tahoe and have done Paddle Boarding the last few summers - way better than kayak. Now that I know SUP is definitely here to stay (as I see more and more folks paddling in Lake Tahoe and the Bay Area), I wanted to go all in on the sport.
Was very confused as to the different boards and brands being offered on the net - from high end expensive designer boards to low end cheapie boards. They are literally all over the net - all claiming to be either the best or the best price-performer. Then I saw a blog post that at the end quickly mentioned Creed SUP as a new mfgr and distributor of high end and beautiful SUPs. After spending about 10 minutes on the creedsup.com site and understanding the mfg process, commitment to sup quality and the beauty of the boards - I was really blown away by Creed SUP.
So - then I called the Creed warehouse and talked to Randy. Sooooo very helpful!!! No bull, no hard sell, just great info, including recommending why the Talon 11' board would be best for me, based on my planned SUP usage. Even gave me the straight scoop on other comparative board companies and products headquartered in San Diego. Again, no hard sell or knocking of the other companies, just great information...
So I ordered the 11' Talon Red Veg over the internet - and literally counted the minutes until delivery. When it arrived after 3 days shipping from San Diego to Northern California (Thursday before Labor Day weekend) it was even more beautiful than what I saw on the website. Went out on Sat, Sun, Mon - even got my son and wife up on the board. Awesome - stable, buoyant, fast, sleek and did I mention beautiful? On Labor Day paddled 10 miles at Lake Del Valle in Livermore - and had to jump into the water half way through just to cool down - SUP is a great core exercise. On both Sat and Sun people stopped me to ask about the cool board. My response? "Creed SUP!!! Check out their website, creedsup.com. You will not be disappointed!"
Love the Talon 11' Red Veg - thank you, thank you, thank you Randy and Creed SUP for a great board and an awesome experience. Next time I come to San Diego for work, I'm heading over to Chula Vista to thank you personally for a fantastic first SUP.
I'm now working a plan to get my wife onto a 10' Kai, so stay tuned...

I'm 69 years old and decided to try SUP. No previous experience surfing. Took a class up here in Central Oregon. Tried several boards. all were 11ft plus boards. went on line and found Creed. Talked to Randy. He outweighs me by 20 lbs. he assured me I would be happy on an 11ft Talon. He was absolutely correct. I also bought the adjustable carbon fiber paddle. At 6ft 6in with freakishly long arms the paddle worked great. I was able to drill two additional holes to make it fit me even better. Absolutely luv this set up. Looking forward to getting more proficient and heading to the coast for some wave action.

My wife and I were looking to get into SUP. I found Creed online and did a lot of spec comparison with many others in general price range. We went out to Creed and demo'd a 10' Kai for the bride and an 11' Talon for me. Randy dropped us off at the harbor and we jumped on and were off and running immediately. I met a guy in the harbor who had a much bigger/fatter/heavier Tower SUP and we actually tried each others out. I liked the Creed much better and no loss of stability but easier to handle than the bigger Tower. The guy liked mine better too!
The bride had a blast so we bought them and immediately went over to Mission Bay and proceeded to paddle for several hours more. The next morning after just one day of SUP, I figured I would give the open water a try as this was the reason I wanted to SUP. I live 100 yds from WindnSea Beach in La Jolla and carried my new Talon down. Easy carrying handle was great. Lightweight and looked cool. Now the hard part, launch off of WindnSea without getting creamed in the surf. Anyone who knows this area knows its not the easiest entry. I successfully launched and in no time was 300 yards off shore. I proceeded to try standing up and after about an hour I was absolutely ocean confident in my SUP ability. So much friggin fun! Way more interesting than cruising Mission Bay.
The next day I talked the bride into joining me in the Ocean and after helping her launch she was out there loving every minute. This is from a woman who won't go in the Ocean under pretty much any circumstances. This is a true testament to the fun and the ease of use of the Creed SUPs. When we would come ashore and collapse in our beach chairs from a a satisfying period of SUP, our boards got plenty of attention due to their beautiful looks.
Happy SUP guy and bride in La Jolla, CA

Work of Art
My wife and I bought boards from Creed after much research. We live in central Illinois so finding a place even remotely close to us to try out Paddle Boarding was not a viable option. After speaking to Randy on the phone multiple times I was convinced Creed was the way to go. Waiting on the boards to arrive was stressful, but we received them after only 7 days. As we unwrapped the boards it was evident that a great deal of care went into packaging them for shipment. They were wrapped in bubble wrap and card board and then placed inside a box for added protection. They were flawless!
The website does not do the beauty of these boards justice. These boards are true works of art! My wife bought the Talon 11 foot board and was so happy with its appearance. Once we put it in the water she was equally impressed with its stability. I purchased the Talon 12 footer and love it. Both boards move across the water much faster then I imagined they would. We have been going out on our lake everyday since we received our boards and every time we go we get comments on how beautiful our boards are.
Thank you Randy for being so awesome to work with and your patience through all my crazy questions! You made me comfortable and confident in my investment and decision to purchase from Creed sup.

I can't thank you enough for the excellent service & advice which ultimately resulted in the purchase of my SUP board! I searched several online shops, including local ones, & the quality, pricing & look of your boards are the best. I love my board...beautiful, unique lightweight board. I would definitely recommend your boards. Love being a part of the "Creed Nation"!
