Starboard 12’6" Cruiser vs. 12′ Big Easy

UPDATED: 1/16/13

We have developed our One World Series as the ULTIMATE ALL AROUND standup paddle board for flatwater lake cruising to open ocean down wind touring to surfing…

Designed and developed in Santa Barbara, California on the West Coast of North America…the name says it all…one board that ANYONE can ride ANYWHERE in the world…the ONE WORLD is the truest execution of an “all waters” SUP on this water planet…

GPS testing shows that our “One World” is faster than some company’s canoe nose 12’6″ models…;-)

The 11’1″ & 11’11” One World Series (2 + 1) :: 11’1″ X 30″ X 4.5″ ~ 180 liters :: 11’1″ X 32″ X 4.5″ ~ 200 liters :: 11’11” X 31″ X 4.5″ ~ 205 liters are very refined all around SUP’s that excel as both wave riders with great glide (fast rockers) and stability…as well as flat water paddlers…

The One World is a very refined soulful, longboard style wave rider with greater glide and stability than a number of 12’6″ canoe nose SUP’s on the market…the reduced swing weight in the nose allows the One World to be more maneuverable and surf smaller than it’s size…it also reduces unnecessary surface area to catch wind and chop…the bottom contours are hydrodynamically efficient…

A surfing glider or a gliding surfer…you choose…maximum versatility…functional minimalism…ONE BOARD…ONE WORLD…

The two +1 fin box setup allows the rider to dial into waves or all water cruising/touring…the One World also possesses phenomenal glide for it’s size, it is being used as a flatwater cruiser all over the planet…the pulled in nose reduces exposed surface area to chop and wind…also, makes it easier to punch out through the waves…should you find them on your venture up or down the coast…also available in a 32″ wide version called the “One World Wide”, with ~ 200 liters of volume…and, our new 11’11″ x 31″ One World Surfari model at 205 liters…

A recent question came up regarding comparison of the Starboard 12’6″ x 30″ “Cruiser” vs. the Starboard 12′ x 32″ “Big Easy”…two of the most popular, and versatile, all around SUP’s on the planet…flatwater lake cruising to surfing…these two boards are stable with nice glide…

Length equals glide…width equals stability…

The Cruiser is going to glide a bit better with 6″ more of waterline…but, the Big Easy is going to be more stable…depending on your weight and paddling/surfing conditions, we may use that as a parameter to recommend one over the other…
