Starboard 10′5″ x 32″ Wide Point SUP Stand Up Paddle Board

I’ve had a few sessions on the Starboard 10′5″ Wide Point SUP and so far it turns and surfs pretty good for such a wide board. The conditions I rode this board in were small waves, chest high at the most. I haven’t had time to get out to the north shore lately and the south shore has been pretty small for winter surf. My first impression for this board is that it looks very slick with the paint job and sandwich construction.

The Wide Point is very stable, as expected from a 32″ wide board but with the rocker and pulled in tail, it turns much easier than what I expected. I let a couple friends try this board out and they agreed that it was very easy to balance and paddle on. I like the full deck pad of the “candy” version of this board. The pad has a different raised pattern in the standing area making it fool proof to know where you are and also in the tail. For guys like me that change often between boards, this is helpful.

When the surf picks up and wind dies down I’ll get a better feel for how this board performs in waves. Until then, here are some specs from Starboard.

Board specifications taken from Starboard’s site:

A POPULAR LENGTH WITH GENEROUS WIDTH, THE 10′5″ X 32″ WIDE POINT IS A USER FRIENDLY, YET PERFORMANCE ORIENTED BOARD.

Its pulled-in nose and extra rocker prevents pearling in those situations where you left it a little late. Substantial amounts of tail kick provide the ability to maintain a surprising level of maneuverability that defies its large-board proportions. Easy on to waves, stable to ride, and easy to turn, characteristics that make it a good option for riders getting into SUP or heavier riders wanting to experience the waves.

    This is just the board I have been hearing about and wondering about. The shorter length makes it ideal for women, and the 32″ width adds stability for the shorter board. Who carries this board? I have an 11 ft. 31 inch width NSP which I love, but it is a handful if you know what I mean. I have often wondered about how different a shorter board would feel and ride. I hope I can try one sometime. Thanks for the info.

    I think Wet Feet Hawaii, Blue Planet Surf or Kimo’s Surf Hut may have some or may be getting some.

    The wide point line is great, they are very stable yet surf well. We have demos available to try before you buy. Starboards now offers the wide point in these sizes:
    8′2 x 32″
    8′10″ x 32″
    9′5″ x 32″
    10′5″ x 32″

    The brushed carbon construction is the best on the market- super light and strong
    The 10′5 Widepoint is now available in AST white, which is very affordable. You can also get it in AST silver, AST candy (as in Evan’s pics) and Wood construction. We have a new Starboards shipment coming in soon, check with http://www.blueplanetsurf.com at 808 596 7755 for more info.
