Starboard Pocket Rocket HD Vid Clip

One of our Central Coast client's sent this kewl HD vid clip movie of recent action on the Starboard 8'5" x 30" "Pocket Rocket"...pretty good for only his 3rd movie...

Here's Ken's customized mosaic Pocket Rocket pad job...

The Short, stable and fast shape that changed the perception of SUP shortboarding is still the benchmark in onshore and more mushy conditions. Seamlessly smooth acceleration and lightning top end speed allow you to make the fastest of sections, with the shorter length allowing it to fit into smaller pockets. Stability is enhanced with the wide nose and pulled in tail, utilizing the "Stinger" concept to provide the unique combination of a high performance board, while still being user friendly.

Mono concave nose section runs to double concave back section with fish tail.

Scott McKercher showing that it works pretty good in hollower waves, too...;-)

No wonder it's the #1 best selling under 9' SUP in the world...IT WORKS!!!

Surfing SUP's

The nice run of surf that we've enjoyed lately has brought a number of paddlesurfers from all over the state...and, several from the East Coast into the shop to pick up more high performance wave riding SUP's...

Here are a few of the wave riding SUP's that have been flying out the door, lately...

The Starboard 8'5" "Pocket Rocket" is the best selling under 9' SUP in the world...

Here is one in "Classic" construction that we just custom padded up yesterday for another longtime Central Coast surfer...

Here is a GoPro vid clip that our friend Dan Gavere (Werner Paddles) put together of paddle surfing Hawaii on the Pocket Rocket...

Here are a few quotes about it's performance:

Nikki and I are absolutely loving our Pocket Rockets in HI. Fast loose and turny. I had mine on a few waves that were approaching double overhead and it was solid.

-- Dan Gavere

"8'5" Pocket rocket, yeehaw!!!"

"So, after receiving my pocket rocket about 2 weeks ago, I finally got to try it out with the swell that has rolled into Socal these past couple days. I totally love it. The board is super stable, and paddles over the waves really well. I was concerned about that because I have been riding the 10'3" the last couple months, but the pocket rocket is super stable. I had the 8'0" by 26" before, yeah, not so much for me. the pocket rocket basically surfs like a "fun board". Which is fitting, cause it's fun. Catches waves well too. All your energy can go into surfing, rather than keeping your balance. Get it!!!!!"

-- Brandi Baksic

"I just received mine, and the thing works unreal!
Turns on a dime, and built bombproof.
Stoked to be paddlesurfing again, instead of just grinding out insane training sessions."

-- EJ (Johnson Big Stick SUP Paddles)

Pocket Rocket (Technora) on the right at 30" width compared to it's narrower cousin the 8'5" Tiki at 28" width...

More comparison pics in these galleries... GALLERY 1

Another killer option that we've been ripping on lately are the North Pacific SUP''s an 8'6" and 9'0"...

So far, almost everyone who has ridden our new 10'6" stinger gun design, has ordered's that good...we have another batch being built right now...along with a new 10'2" x 30" mini-tanker, double bump, wing round tail...

A few other options are the new Blair 8'11", 9'7", & 10'1" production epoxy SUP's which are great waveriders...Joe Blair has been shaping for 40 years...he's made my quad surfboards for the last 12 years...
