Connor Baxter Wins The Stand Up World Series Season Opener On The Epic Iceberg Lake

Event Update by Connor Baxter

The 2013 Patagonia Chile event was amazing. It started off with a lot of traveling and long car rides. On the way to Patagonia, I saw more sheep and llamas and alpacas than I did people – we were in the middle of nowhere. Once we finally got to this beautiful place the water was freezing and the air was cold – but it was perfect racing conditions.

Starboard Wide Point 9′5″ SUP Surfboard at Blue Planet Surf

starboard-wide-point-9-5-at-blue-planet-surf-01

I’ve been riding Starboard Wide Points for a couple years now. I started off with the original 10′5″ version and really liked it. I used it on Oahu’s North and West Shores because it allowed me the extra balance I needed when paddling back out in rough chop. It was also really comfy to ride in town on the South Shore, especially when just coming off a 17′4″ race board. This year’s 9′5″ Wide Point is a definite improvement. The shorter length allows for easier turns and it still feels super stable and turns great. It’s a different feeling than having a sub 30″ wide board with a narrow nose and tail but the loss in “shredability” is totally fine with me. I can’t really “shred” anyway. This board floats my 215 lbs no problem and has pretty good paddle power. Continue reading ‘Starboard Wide Point 9′5″ SUP Surfboard at Blue Planet Surf’

Downwind runs are exciting and fun. In the surf, you are often waiting for a set or your turn to catch the next wave. On a downwinder, there are no crowds, you have long windswells that stretch across the whole ocean to play with, you are always on the move, going from one glide to the next, surfing the bumps.
