I'm guessing SP relates to their SUP, the Space Pickle...they certainly look the same; ?

It's a mini-pickle, don't you think?

Don't know yet, but I'm likely to find out before too long. :)
Everything about it says Sweet Potato / Nugget.

How well would it handle impacts with swimmers?

The board looks to have much more rocker in the nose which will help it on bigger waves. As for swimmers I think the increased rocker would allow one to ride over the swimmer with more ease. The nugget with less rocker will bludgeon the swimmer. So different tools for different tools. :bye:
