Starboard 12'6 X 25 The NEW Stand Up Paddle Board Review
Board Specs: 12'6 X 25 EPS Epoxy standard glass my weight: 182lbs my height: 5'10
The conditions: were 1 to 2 foot seas with a 1 foot background swell with 10 to 12 knot winds.
The Ride: At 25" wide I was wondering how tippy this board would be. I paddled in small short period chop, it got tippy on me a few times, but the board only went so far then stop tipping. This was the first time I paddled it and know with a little practice I could get it wired pretty easy. The board just took off from the first stroke and kept on going and going. We turned around about 1/2 mile up wind and started back downwind. I was able to pick up little rolling chop and keep the board moving at a pretty consistent clip. I was worried that with such a thick nose the board would take waves over the front. It did a great job negotiating the small chop, any water that came over the nose, which was very little, was pushed off the side due to the vee up by the nose and didn't make it to the foot wells. The deep foot wells make you stand at the water line, this helps keep the board stable even at 25 inches wide.
Conclusion: This board is fast, it was so much fun to be on such an efficient board and look forward to paddling this board more.Need more info, just give us a call.
