The New Edge


The New Edge

The Wedge range features a lineup of paddleboards that are all 32’’ wide to provide float and stability for heavier riders to rip, offering that pro performance and feel without compromising stability or volume. This is a versatile range for big to small conditions, best suited for beginner and intermediate riders.

🏆 The Wedge won 2022 Best Performance Wide Body Board awarded by SUPBoarder Magazine



We were blown away by the performance capabilities of the Wedge. The board feels a lot smaller and compact than the specifications make it out to be and this is because of the pulled in tail, consistent rocker line, bottom contours and the thinner rail profile. The Wedge could well be a SUP surfing quiver killer for beginner to intermediate SUP surfers.


This 9’2” Wedge demonstrates the best hiding of volume we’ve yet experienced, both on sight and on the water. In surf with some energy, the easy take-off gives way to a smooth, rail-engaged bottom turn happily free from the clatter and excess speed that trouble some wider surf shapes. The tail response is light and the Wedge responds like a board 20 litres smaller. This board is a wave-burglar without equal. If high wave count, time on the wave and fool-proof stability in a board that behaves as a surfboard should are what you’re looking for, the Wedge is it.


The narrow nose outline helps you generate speed, limits the nose from catching through turns and fits in tighter pockets in the wave.


Helps get into waves easily and early.


Thinner rails on the 8’7” and 9’2” gives the Wedge its pro level performance with faster surfing speeds, better grip, and turning capabilities. The thinner rails are inspired by the much loved Longboard range for the ultra-responsive and reactive feel.


Generates lift, drive and speed as it channels the water from nose to tail, through to double concave for sensitive rail to rail turning from the midpoint, through to vee tail for reactive pivot turning on the tail.


The Wedge has a new rounded pin tail to maximize the turning ability in these wider models. The pin tail makes it easier to engage and sink the tail for faster bottom turns and top turns with more drive. Rounded tail also gives the board a better drive out of the turns.


• Thruster fin setup provides comfortable straight line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf.

• 8’7″ & 8’0″ features both thruster and quad. 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.


• Blue Carbon comes with Prepreg Carbon fins.

• Starlite and Limited Series come with Armacore center fin and Net Positive side fins.

• 8’0” x 32” Starlite and Limited Series come with Armacore fins.


Reduces paper waste while protecting your board from dust, scratches, and UV damage. Made with stretchable polyester, it fits various board shapes. Ensure optimal board maintenance with the iconic blue Board Sock, featuring a secure drawstring closure.

*Sold aftermarket for Wedge Limited Series


On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS

• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.

• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.

• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.




• Ultra-durable, scratch and impact resistant woven 200g twill azure rail protection.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom to protect against total breakage. The T-stringers are positioned close to the rail working like an i-beam to endure heavy drops and strong wipeouts.

• Starlite now features a full deck of 0.6mm Australian pine wood which is sandwiched between 2 glass outer skins, increasing the overall total breakage strength and reducing the weight due to lower resin absorption.




  • Twin T-stringers made from glass fibre are positioned on the deck and bottom of the board close to the rail, providing a massive increase in the overall strength against total breakage in surf.
  • An additional wide layer of 200g glass wraps the rails for higher strength against paddle impact and further reinforces the overall strength against buckling.
  • The deck features reinforced biaxial glass and Australian pine, to resist heel dents and impact from the standing area.
  • The nose and tail are wrapped in multiple layers of glass fiber for further strength on these impact zones.

Board weight tolerance:

For every board Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation.

Each tree absorbs 673kg of CO2 during its first 25 years.

50% of absorption goes towards offsetting this board & 50% is secured as carbon credits to fund livelihood projects in Myanmar.

The average emission from a Starboard board is 100 kg CO2.

By planting 3 trees per board we offset this 10 x over.

The Wedge has an average carbon footprint of 121.6 kg per board.

1.4 kg of trash is collected per board by starboard pop crews at beaches in Thailand & Myanmar.

Globally, an individual is responsible for 1.4 kg of plastic reaching the ocean every year.

Starboard balances this amount for our customers.

The Wedge has an average plastic content of 7.8 kg per board.
