We’ve been sharing with you guys a few pics and details about the upcoming 2009 Starboard SUP lineup since last August on this blog…things have gotten a bunch closer to fruition…you can check out a low rez copy of the 2009 Starboard catalog by clicking the link below…or, stop by the shop to check out the coffee table quality hard copy…

People have commented that it is coffee table quality…definitely the nicest watersports brochure ever published…
Starboard’s Margaret Engstrom is an incredible photographer…

We’ll have a number of the boards shown below in less than 2 weeks…and, a container of them next month around President’s Day…if you want to ensure that you’ll get a board in this first round, we’ve been taking pre-orders…

Designed for waterkids L@@King for a quick learning board…super kewl pricing for the parent’s, too…;-)

8’5″ x 30″ Pocket Rocket:

For full blown rail to rail tight pocket turning and vertical performance…

9′ x 30″ Stinger:

Quad + 1 fin setup allows board to paddle straight…width ensures stability…once on the wave, step back and let her RIP!!!

We’ve ridden this puppy in overhead waves…if you have the surfing skills, it won’t disappoint…

9’8″ x 30″ Element:

A performance oriented short board that combines drive and fluidity with round pin tail…

10′ x 34″ The Whopper:

We’ve ridden this board and was impressed by how surfy it is…obviously, it is a super stable SUP…this board revolutionizes what can be done by bigger guys in real waves…Ekolu Kalama has ridden it at Pipeline…

10’3″ x 28.5″ The Gun:

Copious amounts of vee…fast rocker…nose flip…thin and drivey…

10’5″ x 30″ Drive:

Achieving the best balance between stability, maneuverability, and glide…the perfect all-arounder…Starboard has produced a board with extreme drive and speed…yet, is loose and responsive…we’ve ridden it…everything above is true and then some…my prediction is this will be the #1 SUP sold in the world for 2009…

11’2″ x 30″ The Blend:

Rooted in traditional longboard SUP style…smooth paddler and noserider…

12′ x 32″ Big Easy:

Starboard developed this wood technique back in 1994…
(available in four sizes…9’x30″…9’8″x30″…10’5″x30″…12’6″x30″)

Not only are these shapes leading the industry…the construction features the top build quality in the world…which in turn equals best bang for the buck…

INNOVATION…QUALITY…VALUE…

There have been pricing increases for 2009…so give us a shout out if you want a killer deal on the current Starboard lineup, which BTW, is blowing away the competition…
