The Starboard Big Easy All Rounder

12′0″x32″

Big Easy
Technora, TAC, Camo, Candy, Blue touch
Length: 370 cm
Width: 81.8 cm
Tail Width: 16.7″ /42.6 cm
Stability rating: 9.5
Thickness: 4.6″ /11.8 cm

Big and Easy, it’s as simple as that. Stable to paddle thanks to its 32″ width and great glide with the full 12’0″ length. The generous nose width and mono concave up front provides fun nose riding abilities and also lets the board paddle into waves with ease. The pinned out alt section with ample tail rocker sports good wave riding characteristics for a board of this size.
Very Stable with excellent glide, a great all rounder, well suited to schools and heavier riders and families. Also available with a full deck pad and windsurfing mast track.

Surfing the River Thames – SUP in the City

October 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Stand Up Paddling in the City.

London

“You’ll never buy bottled water claiming to be fresh from the River Thames!! While maybe not the cleanest water way in the world there is something special about it. Tower Bridge, London Bridge and Big Ben, the list of things to see is endless and what better way to see them than from the water. Tourists lean over the railings to see what you are doing and you are the talk of the town as you paddle past. Stay out of the way of the big tourists boats and watch for strong rips around the bridges, do that and you’ll have an amazing paddle. SUP is taking me on journeys I never thought possible……”

At the beginning of the year we formed a Starboard Race Team. The sole mission of the team was to support and develop the racing side of SUP in the UK. Events were getting less than 20 and sometimes less than 15 entrants. We knew there was scope to grow racing, it just needed some nurturing and some education of paddlers. Most people were scared off due to the perceived elitist nature of racing. Pushing this preconceptions aside we developed a team of paddlers who represented a broad spectrum of paddler from Olympians through to first time competitors.

The race team has been an outstanding success. Not only have Starboard riders been on the podium at every race this year we have also seen race entry numbers grow to 40-50+ in a few short months.

Racing is an easily accessible part of the sport and the winter will not be stopping the fun. The U.K community itself has developed the Frostbite race series – a number of race events to be held over the winter. Paddlers don’t need a race board to start with and everyone is really friendly.

Joe Carberry hardly assuages my Ontario boy fears of surfing in shark-infested waters when he tells me the two-metre-long Great White is nicknamed “Fluffy.”

Carberry, a few other locals and I, the lone Canadian, are about to hit the water for a late-afternoon session at San Onofre State Beach near San Clemente, located midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, for my first crack at stand-up paddleboard (SUP) surfing.
