Here’s a preview of Starboard’s 10′3″ x 29″ Pro SUP stand up paddle board from their 2011 Pro Wave lineup. This board was shaped by Scott McKercher and Svein Rasmussen.
Board specs and info taken from Starboard’s site:
A VERSATILE BOARD SUITED PERFECTLY FOR SURF AND FLAT WATER CONDITIONS.
The board you will want when the surf picks up. But it still performs in marginal conditions when you need the glide to get into the waves and handle late drops. With a drawn-out tail outline, thinner deck profiles, and rails and rocker line to match, it’s all about the containment of speed while still being able to initiate a turn and trust the board under your feet. An interesting by-product of this shape is the enhanced glide well suited to lighter riders wanting a board for calm water paddling. It’s a testers’ favorite and a fantastic board that enables endless progression in the waves.
“Long mono concave running from nose and two thirds of the board, merging to double concave with fair amount of tail V.”
