Here’s a preview of the 2011 Starboard Ace 14′ x 25″ SUP stand up paddle race board shaped by Brian Szymanski. As you’ll notice in the video, the Ace has really thick sides and has quite a lot of volume. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet but the board looks fast.

Board specifications taken from Starboard’s site:

CLASS WINNING DESIGNS FOR FLATTER WATER AND SMALL CHOP

The Ace boards excel in flatter waters with their sharper nose cutting small wave chop. A larger and deeper concave through the middle increases glide and early planing. Sharper tucked rails in the cockpit area increases stability. The 011 ACE designs are offering two widths for the 12′6″ class and 2 widths for the 14′0″ class. The 27″ wide hulls are more stable and made for heavier riders and more difficult water conditions. The more narrow 25″ wide boards are the choice for lighter riders and top elite racers. The ACE boards are designed by Brian Szymanski and replaces his 010 model “New” boards.

    I’m quite new to this, and I was wondering if this is the same board that you use for paddle surfing? Cause, I’ve only seen those tiny/half cut boards being ridden by people when they mention it as a sport.

    Sand Sock Girl – This is a race board. It’s not meant to surf. It’s meant for downwinders or racing.
