The new edge

ARE YOU READY TO SURF LIKE A PRO, YET HAVE THE EASE AND COMFORT FROM A WIDER BOARD?

The Wedge line upgrades the previous range of Wide Point boards. These boards have a pro performance and feel without compromising stability or volume. All boards are 32’’ wide to provide float and stability for heavier riders to rip. This is a versatile range for big to small conditions, best suited for beginner and intermediate riders.

 

The new 8’0″ x 32″ at 123 Liter is nimble, agile and compact. Stability meets maneuverability in the shortest Wedge design.

SUP BOARDER MAGAZINE SAYS

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 pro le. The Wedge could well be a SUP surfing quiver killer for beginner to intermediate SUP surfers.

SUP INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE SAYS

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.

NARROW NOSE OUTLINE

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

LOW NOSE ROCKER

Helps get into waves easily and early.

THIN RAIL PROFILE

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.

MONO CONCAVE

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.

ROUNDED PIN 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.

FIN SET UP

  • Thruster fin set up 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

THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED

• 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.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.

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

STARLITE

THE STRONGEST RAIL EVER TESTED

• 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.

LIMITED SERIES

TIMELESS LOOK, SOLID PERFORMANCE
  • 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.

A favorite in the testing and development, it turned heads with its control and responsiveness. The 9’2” is so much more responsive to turn as the thinner rails requires less foot pressure to initiate turns. Ultra reactive and sensitive.

Available constructions:

  • Blue Carbon
  • Starlite
  • Limited Series

8’7″ x 32″ / 143L

Length: 8’7” / 262 cm

For every board sold, Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation. Each Mighty Mangrove sinks down 673kg of VCS certified CO2 during its first 25 years.

Together, our 3 mangroves offset the boards Carbon Emissions 10 X over and fund local livelihoods projects in Myanmar.

The Wedge has an average carbon footprint of 102 kg per board.

Buy a board and we pick up 1.1 kg of beach/ ocean plastic trash – equivalent to the amount of plastic trash entering the ocean, per person, per year. Starboard balances this amount for our customers.
