Starboard’s 2015, 8-8 AirBorn review by Atlantic Paddle Surfing


What Starboard says;   …  The 2015 8′-8″ Air Born is a larger version of the highly regarded 2014 Air Born series range for maximum shredding in smaller surf. Thin rails and profile (thickness) combine with the width for a stable yet sensitive and highly responsive ride. Drive and acceleration, when the wave is lacking power, is provided by the mono concave bottom creating the ability to generate speed and project vertically. Although a fast rocker, it’s still able to fit in the pocket for tight carves with release coming from V in the tail for letting the fins go when desired. This board was designed for the even larger riders in the over the 180 lbs plus providing plenty of float and stability. Mono-concave throughout the boards bottom..

Paris Story


By Dan Gavere

Have you ever thought about going to Europe to paddle in the winter? No?

I didn’t either, but my girlfriend, Harmony, is another story. Harmony has never been to Europe, and it has been her dream for years, so when she read about the Nautic Race (also known as the Paris Crossing) that was happening on her birthday in the first week of December; well, to say she was excited is a major understatement. She did not delay and booked tickets faster than I could finish my morning espresso. It was done. We were going to Europe, and although I was born in Spain, I’d never been to Paris, and love the thought of seeing and paddling in new places, but in the cold?
