We’ve received lots of inquiries regarding the exciting new 2010 Starboard Race SUP’s designed by Brian Syzmanski, highlighted in the last blog post, and as seen winning on the race courses around the world…
12’6″ x 26.5″ Surf Race
The Surf Race is designed for downwinds and going in and out through the surf, with a flatter deck for easy foot movement and pivot turns.
It has an optimum foot spread for stability and comfort and sports the NEW’s racing
rocker for speed and glide, working well in a large variety of conditions.
The shallow single concave bottom increases speed when surfing bumps and swells.

Compared to the NEW, the Surf Race is a more versatile and stable shape.
Avalible in Red stripe brushed carbon and Blue stripe full Epoxy, EPS, Glas
Simply the fastest 14′ SUP board in the world.
The sleek and narrow K14 won the SUP world cup with ease with its sharp nose and
Jim Drake designed this board with the ultimate performance in mind. The K14 comes
with a middle fin option to make the hull more stable if needed.
The board will also be extremely competitive in smaller chop as its dug out standing
area provides extra stability.
The K14 offers efficiency at its best and a speed sensation which has not been available
to Stand Up Paddle boarders before now.
The K15 is a complete breakthrough and comes directly from one of the greatest designers of our time. Jim Drake has created a board that is extremely efficient , friendly and fast.
The slightly rounded sleek underwater hull with a sharp nose provides
a fantastic paddling sensation on flat water. The shape also travels extremely fast and smooth in choppy water on all courses. It catches surf easily and you can walk back in the cockpit to lift the nose up to fit any sort of wave configurations.
The water ventilation plugs are designed in a way where you can open and close them by the touch of your finger tips. Keep them closed for flat water paddling and open them for rough water adventures. There are insert plugs both in the front and in the back of the board to tie down bags or even a storage box if needed.
The K-15 is also a fantastic light wind windsurfing board, resembling the Serenity from Starboard’s Windsurfing range. It doesn’t require a jumbo sail. It doesn’t require pro-level skills to enjoy. Best of all, it doesn’t require real wind for an exhilarating ride.
Simply attached your rig and center fin, hop on, sheet in and go.
