2023 STARBOARD SUP 9’6″ x 27″ GUN BLUE CARBON
2 year of winning the best performance surf shape awarded by SUPBoarder Magazine, the PRO is now upgraded to the next level. The completely new design gives more speed to set up and complete maneuvers, more hold through bottom turns in bigger surf and greater response. New rocker is more forgiving on steeper drops, flatter deck feels less corky and new fin positions refine the control and drive through turns. Thinner nose profile reduces swing weight for more radical snaps, thinner tail gives more bite and response through turns.
Length: 9’6” / 290 cm
Width: 27” / 67 cm
Designed as a step-up model for surfing big waves. The narrower nose outline optimises speed so you can race down the wave face and escape white water in critical sections. The pin tail angles are straighter for increased speed and drive. Thin rails and slight vee at the tail help you harness the speed for controlled bottom turns.
PERFORMANCE SHAPES FOR SERIOUS RIDERS SEEKING WORLD-CLASS WAVES.
“Super stoked about the new Pro range, I feel like we finally found the perfect high performance shape, no more hesitation going for a big bottom turn, everything seems possible. That’s the result of many years of research and I’m loving it!” ~ Benoit Carpentier, 2 x ISA champion
Designed and developed in Portugal with shaper Luis “Lacrau” and Ollie O’Reilly, tested by Franz Orsi, Benoit Carpentier, Leonard Nika, Trevor Tunningron, Claudio Nika, Daniel Hasulyo.
THINNER RAIL PROFILE
Reduces swing weight from nose, increasing pivot speed through turns.
LONGER NARROWER NOSE OUTLINE
Extends the rail line, making it easier to paddle into waves and holding on steeper drops.
Single concave provides lift and speed, feeding through to a double midsection and slight vee at the tail to manoeuvre and rock from rail to rail.
FLATTER TAIL ROCKER
Rocker provides faster speed down the line and into turns.
Are kept fine with a more pinched and rolled tuck edge, giving bite, control and speed through maneuvers
At the tail gives more bite and control.
FLATTER DECK SHAPE
Offers more comfort and feels less corky.
Give the most versatile performance in all wave types, particularly holding in bigger surf.
5 FIN OPTION
The 5 fin option allows for quad, thruster and twin fin with small centre nubster. You can choose your preferred fin set up based on riding style and wave conditions.
SUPPLY WITH FINS
All models are supplied with a thruster set up with 4.7 front 120/140 center on bigger sizes. The angles of the fins are updated, with more spray in the front fins for greater manoeuvrability with less angle in the rear for greater drive through turns.
CARBON SURF FIN
PERFORMANCE YOU CAN FEEL
The new, ultra-light carbon surf fins will enhance your performance in the waves, providing more drive, stronger grip, and faster speed out of turns. (comes only with Blue carbon board)”
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.
