We've been out a few times on the new Starboard 14'8" "Point to Point" Distance standup paddleboard...



This is a spacecraft of a board...it took me a few minutes to figure out the steering...there is a carbon rod tensioner that adjusts the integrated rudder...
Once I got that set for the conditions, I figured out that the best way to control it was by big toe pressure rather than the side of the foot...
This really works...you can paddle on one side going straight as you want...and can practically turn around as fast as a sub-10' SUP...
I learned to turn the board around without even paddling...
There is a gallery of pics here... Additionally, I edited up a tail mounted vid clip (QT 7 .m4v)...vid clip (Windows Media .wmv)...

NEW! Starboard SUP's (Standup Paddleboards)

Standing up, selecting the best wave sets, exploring lakes and rivers or going for a long distance downwinder.

Our world team traveled between the Maldives, Australia and Hawaii to develop and test our new progressive SUP range.
The very best shapes are selected and made available in these technologies...


(Click on image above to enlarge.)


Our collection has a host of features which set them apart in the world of SUP:

: Fast tail rockers for speed and early take off
: Extra width for stability
: Added middle rocker plus thin rails for a great ride and maneuverability
: Concaves for nose riding and smoothness
: Built-in carry handles and double leash inserts
: FCS insert options for Sport Tech versions

Starboard was the first company to bring out precision-molded wood veneer surf boards back in the mid nineties.

We were also in the pioneering stage of offering soft deck surf boards.

We take advantage of our early technology innovations and complement them with our development over the last 10 years, which has made Starboard known as the trendsetter and clear world leader.


9'0" x 30" Starboard Standup Fish             
9'8" x 30" Starboard Standup Fish




The Extremists...Starboard SUP Fish

9'8"x30" and 9'0"x30", for the hardcore and people that want to get the most out of riding waves.

The fish-tail style shorter boards are the most exciting and progressive shapes in the range.

They are still stable paddlers due to their 30" width but they demand a slightly higher skill level to be able to get the full potential out of them.

They feel more like surfing a shortboard in comparison. With instant acceleration, their shorter shapes allow you to pump down the line with powerful, driven cutbacks and rapid response.

Gliding into tiny waves with ultimate ease, they comfortably handle the speed of taking the drop on larger waves.



11'2" x 30" Ultimate Blend Starboard Standup       12'0" x 32" "Mr. Easy" Starboard Standup





The Ultimate Blend

The 11'2" x 30" is responsive, handles greater speed, larger waves and allows tighter turns.

Still oriented towards classic longboarding style, it offers greater agility.

As with all the boards in the range, the nose concave provides lift which aides in catching waves, as well as getting up the front to get your toes on the nose.

This single concave feeds into a double concave through the middle and then into a "V" through the tail. This delivers the ultimate combination of lift, drive and release, tailored to suit the various positions of your feet on the board. The 30" width and wide nose provides good stability yet its narrow, thin tail makes it really very loose, especially while using the thruster set up. The thrusters also helps a lot for directional stability while paddling.

This 11'2" design offers the ultimate blend between stability, paddling speed and riding.




Mr. Easy

The 12' x 32" is "great" in every sense of the word. Super easy to paddle and balance due to its extra width and length. It's especially comfortable to get started on this design, climb over white water and into the waves.

General maneuvering is also made simple. It is a big wide board, but due to it's curvy rocker, deep V, thin rails and rounded outline, it is still extremely agile and turns with a smooth carve.

Perfect for less-than-epic conditions found around the world, it turns the most mediocre of waves into a whole lot of fun.

Due to its phenomenal stability, it is well suited to moving up and down the board cross stepping longboard-style. You can try to get all "Hawaiian" by getting up to the nose to "hang ten" and then shuffle back to lay down a carve.

Probably the most versatile board in the market and even great for tandem surfing and fishing.

12'6" x 30" Starboard Cruiser

The Cruiser

The 12'6"x30" is known as a great, fast cruiser for both open ocean and lakes. Its exceptional glide comes from the added length and the smooth stable feeling makes it a hit for "down winders" and "point to point" paddling. The 12'6" is also a cool board to catch your first waves with and it surprises with its good carving ability. Being probably the best tandem surf board ever, the 12'6" is a classic allrounder.


Starboard 12'2" & 12'6" SUP (Standup Paddleboards)




The Starboard Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) is a fantastic board that can be used in a wide range of conditions and locations - from flat water on lakes and oceans, to waves from small easy rollers to the serious stuff, and when the wind is up, simply add a sail and go windsurfing.

Filmed in Hawaii, these four video clips highlight the SUP in the different conditions as ridden by some of the world's top windsurfers.

SUP in the waves
Paddle to that perfect, empty, secret location where the waves are rolling. Watch Timo Mullen, Scott McKercher amongst others riding the waves.

2006 Starboard Board Line & Pricing

The Starboard sailboard lineup is clearly dedicated to various styles of windsurfing and weather conditions. Sailors around the world come in all shapes and sizes and with our expanded lineup we plan to cater for just that, ensuring that anyone regardless of size, gender or age will have a great time windsurfing...from "never-evers" to World Champion, Kevin Pritchard.

The new EVO is blowing the doors off of the wavesailing world...the first truly new improvement in years. The new 1.1 meter wide START is now as easy to learn on as riding a bike. Our new ultra-wide, ultra-short Formula boards race and plane in winds down to 5 knots. The extremely versatile and fashionable new GO boards bridge the gap between START and Formula for the seasoned windsurfer.

The Hypersonicdevelopment program delivers the next generation of competitive slalom boards, helping this ever popular class regain attention of competitive and recreational sailors alike and re-igniting excitement and participation in international and regional regattas. Newly updated World Championship winning Sonic boards feature enhanced high-speed rideability and control.

Our Carve range, which 4 years ago visibly set the future standard for wider and shorter freeride boards, has been fully upgraded with 6 brand new shapes emphasizing superior performance with higher top end speed and control, a livelier ride and tighter jibes.


The complete range of Acid wave boards was rated by US Windsurfing magazine as the top choice for pro riders, and clearly the best pure wave riding boards available. The new FreeSex range introduces first-rate freestyle boards, and in collaboration with Stefan Waechli, a durable hollow version at the lowest possible weight.

A research team including celebrities like Jim Drake, co-inventor of windsurfing and the designer of the aircraft holding the world speed record, and young engineers like Tiesda You, Ben Severne, and Nimit Pormjan, ensures that Starboard will continue producing the best boards in the world.


Svein started windsurfing in 1978 and won the Mistral Worlds in 1983, he was a gold medallist candidate for the 1984 Olympics and spent 10 years on the PWA pro circuit. In 1991 he became the first sailor to have won all disciplines in the IFCA Production-board Class Worlds.


Every Starboard master board is tested by Svein before it gets verified for production. Svein is the sole owner of the brand he founded in 1994, still involved in overlooking every step of the Starboard concept from shaping to shipping.

Our aim is to create the lightest, yet strongest, possible construction for each of our models.
