KEY FEATURES

NEW Shorter Nose Outline

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

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 windpowered fun.

• Only available on 10’0″ x 34″ Whopper

NEW Thinner Rails

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

Flat Rocker

In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.

Flat Standing Area

Allows to have wider stance for extra stability in chop.

Nose Kick

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

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 to Channel Tail

Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the mid point. The channel tail makes it easy to carry speed and hold through maneuvers.

NEW Channel Tail

Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.

NEW New 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 drag from the larger centre fin.)

BOARD CONSTRUCTIONS

NEW Blue Carbon

LIGHTEST WEIGHT, BEST RESPONSE, STRONGEST BUILD
