The crew at SUPBoarder got their hands on the 2024 Gen R – the new flat deck race paddleboard by Starboard. The additon of this easy-to-use race board has been well received by industry and riders alike. Here’s what SUPBoarder had to say;
“Starboard make very competitive race boards and have some of the fastest racers in the world on their boards. Up until now, racers have had two board shape choices… the Sprint or All Star. These two dug out boards have so many strengths, but when the All Star evolved after 2015 there has been a gap in the range for a less recessed, flat deck board with less bottom shape.
The new Starboard Gen R now has all those design features and fills that gap. The Gen R board is going to offer many things for many different racers, from super easy paddling in all conditions to taking on the challenging surf technical racing. The Gen R is certainly a board that does it all and does it well!
