Specifications and info from Starboard’s site:

Free Race
12′6″x29″, 12′6″x31″

An exciting way to comfortably enjoy efficient paddle boarding.

The Free race design nicely share the water and are great for both flat water and choppy conditions.

They are also well suited for surf style events like the Battle of The Paddle. The semi sunk deck provides more balance and the flat mid rocker translates each stroke into forward motion.

The board for those looking for performance and ease at the same time.

Blue stripe full Epoxy, EPS, Glass.
