THE LONGBOARD:

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW OLD THING. CLASSIC STYLE, MODERN CONSTRUCTION

 

 SUP BOARDER AWARD – BEST LONGBOARD SUP

2 new sizes: 9'0"x26" for lighter riders up to 75kg and 10'0"x31"  for heavier riders up to 110kg. 

High performance Longboard that is versatile, incredibly responsive and smooth to turn. Inspired by our legendary Starboard Surf Longboard model, designed to perform in waves from 1ft small beach breaks to head high reef breaks. 

Low volume rails, parallel outline and deep double concave create a board like no other in the range. As the Longboard has ultra thin rails, both the Blue Carbon and Starlite feature twin T-stringers deck and bottom to increase the stiffness and the total breakage strength. 

 

THE SHAPE:

  • Full nose outline gives enough float and stability to ride toes on the nose for classic Longboard styling. 
  • Low volume thinned out rails easily engage with minimal foot pressure, giving control down the wave face and hold through steeper sections of the wave. 
  • Double concave bottom shape allows the board to roll onto its rails effortlessly to turn direction from the standing area. 
  • Parallel outline in the midpoint provides a smooth fast glide that is easy to trim the board. 
  • 9'0"x26" designed for high skilled and lightweight riders up to 75kg. 
  • 10'0"x31" gives more float and volume for heavier riders up to 110kg.

 

> Outline - Parallel straight outline in the mid point provides a smooth fast glide that is easy to trim on the board. Narrow diamond tail is extremely reactive in bottom turns. Fuller nose outline gives enough float and stability to ride toes on the nose for classic longboarding style. 

> Rocker - Gradual nose kick ensures a smooth take off into waves without pearling. Relatively flat midsection delivers speed feeding into moderate tail kick for responsive turning. 

> Bottom shape - Defined double concave from the nose through until a distinct V at the tail. Prominent double concave mid section allows the board to roll onto its rail effortlessly to turn direction from the standing area. Pronounced V tail makes turning very crisp and reactive, essential for fast bottom turns and off the top. 

> Rails - Low volume thinned out rails are fundamentals in performance. Thin rails help engage with minimal foot pressure giving control down the wave face and hold through steeper sections of the wave. 
The low volume rails makes it ultra responsiveness and sensitive to turn direction with speed and control. 
The flat deck improves stability and makes transitioning effortless from rail to rail, allowing for drawn out carves and cutbacks. 

> Fin position - After testing multiple fin positions, we chose to place the side fins very close to the rail; enabling carving with precision and hold through turns, while the centre fin position gives tracking and drive. 

> Fin set up - 185 centre fin and 4.5" proved to be the most preferred combination of drive and tracking. For more tracking, a larger centre fin can be used. 

 

 

THE SIZES:

10'0" x 31" - offers more volume and float for heavier riders up to 110kg. The added thickness in the standing area and wider width make for a super stable ride, yet with the same bite and response that make this model perform so well. 

10'0" x 29" - carries more glide and speed from the longer length. The 29" width provides a wider platform with greater stability for heavier riders. 

9'0" x 28" - suited for lighter riders that want faster and reactive manoeuvrability

9'0" x 26"  - the nimble weapon for high skilled and lightweight riders up to 75kg. Narrower width helps fit in more critical sections of the waves, generates faster speeds down the line and is ultra reactive to foot pressure. Features a unique concave nose for long nose riding. 

 

THE TECHNOLOGY:

The Longboard is available in two constructions - 

Blue Carbon

Starlite

Both feature special reinforced layup with T-stringers and lightweight UD carbon to stiffen the board and increase the overall strength needed from the thin profile.
