Equipment Available

Starboard Drive 10' 5"

Starboard Drive 10' 5

The thin tail and progressive shape give the Drive a throw-about and playful nature in the surf, yet there’s enough glide for some flat-water performance too. It’s the number one selling shape in the UK – an extremely popular allrounder.


Starboard Blend 11' 2"

Starboard Blend 11' 2

The Blend is a fantastic all-rounder, offering superior glide to the Drive for efficient flat water paddling and wave riding agility usually reserved for boards substantially smaller.

Ample nose rocker makes it easier for the novice’s first time into waves, without taking away from its exceptional glide qualities.


Starboard Easy 12'

Starboard Easy 12'

The most appropriate shape for entry level paddling, the Big Easy is exactly that! The 32″ width provides all but the heaviest of riders a stable, forgiving platform and 12′ length gives good glide for efficient paddling.


Starboard Pocket Rocket 8' 5"

Starboard Pocket Rocket 8' 5

The Pocket Rocket’s compact shape allows very tight turns: an incredibly throwabout board for a wide range of conditions.

Its ability to maintain speed and milk the most out of slower, mushy waves place the Pocket Rocket as the firm choice for riding less-than-perfect conditions yet it’s equally at home in fast, clean surf


Starboard Element 9' 8"

Starboard Element 9' 8

Great fun in the surf, the 9’8″ Element is the perfect introduction to snappier shorter S.U.P. surfing. It delivers smooth, easy performance in the waves, with tighter turns than possible on longer designs.

With just enough length (and thus glide) for occasional flat water sessions, even when the surf isn’t rolling in there’s a heap of fun offered by the Element.  It’s also a good first-time board for light-weight riders.


Starboard Touring 12' 6", 14'

Starboard Touring 12' 6

A fast, stable and exciting touring design with great tracking and stability. The low-riding nose is fully engaged when gliding over flat water and efficiently pierces small chop. The low nose produces an extended waterline creating extra glide which makes the Touring board very fast on flat water and able to accelerate quickly when catching bumps downwind. It’s all together a whole new level of enjoyment and excitement.


Starboard Allstar 12' 6'', 14'

Starboard Allstar 12' 6'', 14'

The All Star is an all-rounder with highly diverse characteristics. Fast in chop, great for beach-start racing, fantastic for downwinders, yet competitive in flat water. The middle and upper part of the rails are raised and box-shaped around the standing area, providing added volume / stability. A medium-round bow penetrates upwind, and provides a slippery ride through and over waves downwind. Just sufficient nose volume makes the nose shoot through waves and pop up again with minimal friction.

The flattened-out nose section rocker maximizes the waterline and increases the speed. Its sharp edge at the tucked under mid-section increases the release for surf. The tail section with extra volume lifts the board up for early surfing in bumps and makes it especially easy to turn around buoys.


Starboard Sprint 12' 6'', 14'

Starboard Sprint 12' 6'', 14'

The Sprint designs are clearly a faster flat-water range than anything Starboard have ever built. The recessed standing area lowers the centre of gravity and improves stability, making it possible to ride this narrower design with full power.

The slender hull width also allows the paddle to pass closer to the centre-line of the board, maximizing strokes per side, making each stroke more efficient and more balanced.


Fanatic Fly 10' 5"

Fanatic Fly 10' 5

A board for a lifetime of surfing. Heavier riders or those who want a board for all conditions will fall in love with this timeless thruster shape. Soft rails up front and sharper edges in the tail give the grip and feel of a smaller board with all the grace and glide of the ancient Hawaiians. Thanks to a flatter nose rocker and more pronounced curve in the tail, you gain easy paddling and turning ability for effortlessly catching rides. A flat deck and volume out wide mean there’s balance and stability galore.


Fanatic Fly Air 10'

Fanatic Fly Air 10'

Perhaps the most multipurpose product on the market. Born of the classic hard shell Fly 10’6”, this inflatable is tailored to the ocean – it’s based on the most popular shape in our hard shell range – but with extra width for stability and comfort. Perfect for genuine surfing performance, cruising and maximum family fun – all packed in a handy bundle. Make sure there’s one in your trunk ready to hit the water at any opportunity.


Fanatic Allwave 8' 6", 9' 2"

Fanatic Allwave 8' 6

With a focus on easy paddling and wave-catching ability for any size of rider, this is easy riding at its best. Wide outlines suiting first-timers and true surf-style scoop rocker lines allow a balanced and planted stance for both paddling and surfing positions. Extra nose kick keeps advanced riders happy in steeper surf or after radical turns and the Fish Tail delivers lift and turning power on mellower days.


Fanatic Touring 11'

Fanatic Touring 11'

The all new easy to use Ray is perfect for either first-time paddlers or experienced racers, the Rays are effortless to handle both on and off the water. The shorter, wider outline is stable but parallel enough to maximise waterline for maximum glide and speed. The efficient curves are all born of the race series with a continuous nose-to-tail rocker line guaranteeing smooth release and paddle motion.

A sharp bow cuts through the water and the pulled-up profile prevents nose diving and wash over your feet. The flat-angled deck shape and thicker, fuller volume rails are forgiving for a dry and stable ride


Fanatic Falcon Race 12' 6", 14'

Fanatic Falcon Race 12' 6

12' 6''

The more stretched, parallel outlines and wider piercing nose supply extra lift, a faster bow action to climb chop and white­water and a steadier paddling platform. Achieving added stability on a narrower profile allows a fast, rounder, more efficient bottom shape enhancing the longer waterline and continuous, clean-water release rocker. Above deck a rigid spine disperses wash and speeds-up nose recovery in swell and the stabilising square tail and flat stance area promises you’ll only ever need to concentrate on cadence and reeling-in your rivals.

14''

Now with maximised waterline length, a wider nose blends into a parallel mid-section and narrower tail for drag-free release. Smooth nose and tail curves merge into a continuous rocker line for efficient gliding motion. Your paddling position remains secure with a low centre of gravity thanks to a flat, stance section on-deck ideal for high performance racers in any conditions. All models come with ONE fins super-light US Box 9.75” RaceAce fin.

The 2013 model has a wider tail for added stability and float.

Red has increased the thickness of this classic from 100mm to 120mm for 2013. This increases stiffness while not affecting the ride and performance makes the board firmer, more comfortable to paddle and allows you to pick your line across even the smallest of waves.


Red Mega 10' 8"

Red Mega 10' 8

The Ten Eight forged the way for wide inflatable boards. Perfect for the bigger rider (100kgs+) and family paddler.

With the thickness increased from 100mm to 120mm this year you can obtain greater stiffness at lower pressure. The 120mm board is more than 40% stiffer than a 100mm board at the same pressure. The combination of overall width plus the wide tail creates a really stable platform. Great for any size of person to learn on and as an all rounder for the heavier rider and despite its size it still feels lively and responsive.
