“PERFORMANCE SHAPES FOR SERIOUS RIDERS SEEKING WORLD-CLASS WAVES”

 

Shorter lengths, more stability, faster speed and more control – we introduce the 2021 PRO range!

 

All new sizes scaled up from the 6’8″ Pro model designed and tested by our 2 ISA World Champion surfers Benoit Carpentier and Zane Schweitzer. The short outline helps to fin in tighter pockets of the wave and is more maneuverable without the nose catching through turns.

KEY FEATURES

Starboard-SUP-paddle-board-2021-pro-Feature-Image-Main

NEW ALL NEW SIZES

All Sizes are 3″ shorter than 2020 yet have equal if not more stability due to thickness and distributed volume.

NEW SHORTER OUTLINE

Allows the board to pivot without the nose catching through the turns and can fit in tighter pockets in the waves.

NEW THINNER RAILS

Require less foot pressure, making it more sensitive and reactive, carving rail turns and have greater control down the wave face. The low volume rails allow the board to sit slightly lower in the water aiding stability.

AVAILABLE SIZES

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-9-0x30-pro-blue-carbon

NEW

9’0″ x 30″ / 157 L

Length: 9’0” / 274 cm.

Width: 30” / 76 cm.

The 9’0” is the biggest board in the range and the first pro design to go as wide as 30”, designed for riders that want extra stability and float. The length works as a gun style board in bigger surf, generating faster down the line speed.

Available constructions:

• Blue Carbon Pro

• Starlite

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-8-7x29_5-pro-blue-carbon

NEW

8’7” x 29.5” / 135 L

Length: 8’7” / 262 cm.

Width: 29.5” / 75 cm.

The 8’7” doesn’t feel like the second biggest board in the range, in fact far from it. Yes, it has 135L to float a rider up to 110kg, but the performance is unmatched for a board of its size.

Available constructions:

• Blue Carbon Pro

• Starlite

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-8-0x29-pro-starlite

NEW

8’0” x 29” / 121 L

Length: 8’0” / 244 cm.

Width: 29” / 74 cm.

The 8’0” packs a surprising amount of volume for its size, making it a very viable option for riders that might normally be intimidated by going so short. The slightly domed deck holds the float and stability, thinning out at the rails to allow for responsive foot pressure when turning without making the board feel corky.

Available constructions:

• Blue Carbon Pro

• Starlite

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-7-7x28-pro-starlite

NEW

7’7” x 28” / 107 L

Length: 7’7” / 231 cm.

Width: 28” / 71 cm.

This board replaces both the 7’10” x 28” and 29”, and yet despite being shorter, it actually has 5 liters more float for riders up to 85kg. The thin and sharp rails provide so much speed down the line that it makes it easy to set up for explosive maneuvers.

Available construction:

• Blue Carbon Pro

• Starlite

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-6-8x24-blue-carbon-pro

NEW

7’2” x 26.75” / 87 L

Length: 7’2” / 218 cm.

Width: 26.75” / 68 cm.

This board replaces 2 sizes; the 7’7” x 26.75” and 7’2” x 25.5”, sitting in between at 87L, it is suited for riders up to 80kg. The rail thickness is ultra-thin to enable long and sharp carving turns. The short outline makes it fit in the tightest pockets and reduces the nose from catching during the most critical maneuvers.

Available construction:

• Blue Carbon Pro

2021-starboard-composite-pro-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-6-8x24-pro-blue-carbon

NEW

6’8” x 24” / 76 L

Length: 6’8” / 203 cm.

Width: 24” / 60 cm.

The 6’8” was designed and tested by ISA World SUP Surf Champion’s Benoit Carpentier and Zane Kekoa Schweitzer. Designed to win, all other sizes are exactly scaled versions of this board, so any rider using a new 2021 Pro can trust they share the same design and performance from the highest performing athletes in the world.

Available construction:

• Blue Carbon Pro
