Starboard is leading the way with yet another SUP innovation…the 2010 Starboard 6’6″ x 34″ “Impossible”…

It doesn’t stop there, however…there are so many more Innovations in the oven right now that we haven’t disclosed…the Imitators will NEVER catch up…let alone the Idiots with their greed and avarice…;-)

That’s called the progression of the “three I’s”…
I can’t take credit for it…another Warren came up with that…;-)

It’s gonna downright embarrass those companies out there right now that think that they are “kicking ass”…classic textbook case of the emperor gayly sitting on the throne with no shirt on…;-)

After leading the way for the last couple of years with the 7’2″ x 29″ “Kid” wave ripper…it’s pretty amazing this board has stood unchallenged in the marketplace…especially, by companies that think they are the shizzle in small SUP wave boards…high performance paddlesurfing doesn’t stop at 9’…

Our buddy Treve Jones over 2 years ago on the 7’2″…you should see him ride it as a twinfin these days…

Switch foot on takeoff…

Off da lip…

We introduced you to the 7’4″ x 29.5″ Pod a few weeks ago…

Demands for PERFORMANCE, wishes to be floating OVER sections, needing to be able to DRIVE hard off the bottom, a melting pot of bullet points. A thought to attempt what was considered impossible, a realization that it was plausible, a result providing endless supping fun. Welcome the POD (performance overdrive), at 7’4″ x 29.5″ this is an ultimate high performance SUP that places you in to the pocket & lets you surf out. A board designed to push your ability and has you frothing for more action in performance waves, showing you that supping has no curtain call, it is continuously emerging with new ambitions & this board places you in the front line of evolution…

6’6″ x 29 3/4″ The Impossible

When first introduced to SUP, I was curious. Coming from a professional surfing background, the whole idea of SUP’ing came across a little boring. For all I knew, it was a sport where old guys would stand on top of oversized boards and paddle around with an oar to easilty catch waves . As a young surfer, it just didn’t sound appealing.

Then I came to experience it first hand… . It was an activity that tested my abilities as a surfer- my balance, strength, and natural sync with the movement of the ocean.

After a while I found how it puts a new twist on the methods of traditional surfing. Instead of testing your abilities only while being on the wave, SUP challenge you during the entire session- when you’re standing on the board, paddling, catching and surfing a wave. It is a great tool to fine-tune your surfing style. SUP’ing is an activity that I have taken a great liking to and look forward to each session as an opportunity to further improve my skills.

7’11” x 29″ Seven Eleven Pod

How about another under 8′ board?…if you’ve been watching this blog, you’ve seen glimpses of it…we already have pre-orders on it from several hot local wave rippers…

Shown here in the wood top and bottom…Terje Haakonsen (TAC) version…
Developed by Jean Louis Colmas in 1984, Wood Technology became Starboard’s trademark construction since 1995…let’s do the math…that’s 15 years of building wood boards that withstand the rigors of world class wavesailing…going over 30 mph and looping 30
‘ in the air…and, more importantly landing with board fully intact…we are not just trying to figure it out now with only a couple of years of board building experience under our flip flops…;-)

WARNING, this short shape is quickly taking you to levels that seemed impossible. Advanced SUP riders and light weights are suited to get the most out of this board. Radically responsive, only the 7’11” x 29.5″ POD will match it’s rail to rail ability, vertical projection, speed down the line and ability to fit into a pocket.

It doesn’t have the greatest glide into waves…no high performance short board SUP under 8′ will…so, this board will test your balance. However, the performance benefits of it’s smaller size and maneuverability, usually outweigh these factors for those looking for “a short board” feel…and, truly rad short board performance…no gain without pain…;-)
