WIDE RIDE

MORE PERFORMANCE, STABILITY AND WAVES

The Wide Ride range features great surf ‘n cruise paddle boards that are designed to be floaty, fun, and the king of catching waves. This range is ideally suited for those getting started in SUP surfing and is great for the whole family to have fun with while learning the sport. You’ll make any kind of mush highly surfable with this shape.

 

KEY FEATURES -

> Wide Ride with real glide - Wide Ride has a surf ‘n cruise paddle board size for all rider weights and abilities; the bigger models produce the easiest glide and stability, while the smaller sizes deliver more control and manoeuvrability. Wide Ride: the wave-ripper for real-world riders!

> Thin rails on wide boards - You will sense the trademark thin rails biting into the wave just like a smaller board and let you maneuver off the top and in bottom turns in ways not expected. The thin rails mean you need less effort to turn on rail, as there is less volume holding the board back from sinking into the turn.

> Short nose outline - Makes it easier to pivot turn and fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.

> Nose kick - Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.

> Flat rocker - In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.

> Flat standing area - Allows to have a wider stance for extra stability in chop.

> Moderate tail kick - Allows for tighter turning when standing back on the tail.

> Wide rounded tail - Improves stability when stepping on the board to turn. It also gives release out of turns.

> Mono to double concave bottom - Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the midpoint.

> Channel tail - Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.

> Side fin boxes - Are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns. Minimal change yet a big improvement

> Fin set up - Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight-line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf. Blue Carbon comes with Prepreg Carbon fins. Starlite comes with Armacore center fin, Net Positive side fins. Lite Tech Wave, ASAP and Rhino come with Net Positive fins.

> Windsurf option - The SUP Windsurfing range offers a great choice for sharing windsurfing and paddle boarding with friends and family. They glide with ease, very different from anything we have offered in the past. Starboard brought home 11 out of 12 PWA constructor titles over the last 12 years and we love getting more people into windpowered fun.

Only available on 10’0″ x 34″ Whopper ASAP WS

What are the constructions?

BLUE CARBON
LIGHTWEIGHT, STRONG AND DURABLE, 2X CARBON STRINGER

• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.

• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.

• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.

 

STARLITE
THE STRONGEST RAIL EVER TESTED

• Ultra-durable, scratch and impact resistant woven 200g twill azure rail protection.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom to protect against total breakage. The T-stringers are positioned close to the rail working like an i-beam to endure heavy drops and strong wipeouts.

• Starlite now features a full deck of 0.6mm Australian pine wood which is sandwiched between 2 glass outer skins, increasing the overall total breakage strength and reducing the weight due to lower resin absorption.

 

ASAP
AS STRONG AS POSSIBLE

• Impact-resistant high-density EVA wrapping the whole rail from nose to tail.
• Multiple layers of high-grade fiberglass are wetted out in epoxy resin wrapping the hull.
• Australian pine on the standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity.
• Extra rigidity with the introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail and nose reinforcements.

 

LITE TECH
LIGHT, STRONG, AFFORDABLE

• Extra rigidity with introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail / nose reinforcements.

• Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity in the most critical area.

• All inserts have added high density foam reinforcements.

 

RHINO
AS TOUGH AS IT GETS

• Built to last, Rhino is the most durable and hardwearing technology designed for schools and clubs.
• The entire board is wrapped in a thick, tough thermoplastic polymer ABS skin, offering an ultra strong impact resistance and durable shell.
• The full rail is wrapped with a 0.7mm thick rail band to further protect the rails against impact.
• Full EVA deck makes it forgiving and comfortable to move around.
• A tow hole in the nose makes it easy to tow the boards and makes it easy to lock multiple boards together.
