Wide Ride

“MORE PERFORMANCE, MORE STABILITY, MORE WAVES”

 

The wave-ripper for real-world riders. This surf paddle board is Floaty, fun, and the king of catching waves. You’ll make any kind of mush highly surf-able with this shape.

Wide Ride has a size for all rider weight and abilities; the bigger models produce the easiest glide and stability, while the smaller sizes deliver more control and manoeuvrability.

KEY FEATURES

SHORTER NOSE OUTLINE

Makes it easier to pivot turn and fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.

THINNER RAILS

Increases the responsiveness and ease to engage rail-to-rail turns with less effort.

NOSE KICK

Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.

FLAT ROCKER

In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.

FLAT STANDING AREA

Allows to have a wider stance for extra stability in chop.

MODERATE TAIL KICK

Allows for tighter turning when standing back on the tail.

WIDE ROUNDED TAIL

Improves stability when stepping on the board to turn. It also gives release out of turns.

MONO TO DOUBLE CONCAVE BOTTOM

Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the midpoint.

CHANNEL TAIL

Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.

WINDSURF OPTION

The SUP Windsurfing range offers a great choice for sharing windsurfing and paddle boarding with friends and family. They glide with ease, very different from anything we have offered in the past. Starboard brought home 11 out of 12 PWA constructor titles over the last 12 years and we love getting more people into wind-powered fun.

Only available on 10’0″ x 34″ Whopper

See SUP Windsurfing Range
SIDE FIN BOXES

Are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns. Minimal change yet a big improvement.

FIN SET UP

Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight-line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf

(Pocket Rocket allows both thruster and quad set up. Quad fin set up uses 4 side fins and gives fast acceleration and instant down the line speed as it does not have a drag from the larger centre fin.)

THE STRONGEST RAIL EVER TESTED
  • Ultra-durable, scratch and impact resistant woven 200g twill azure rail protection.
