The New 2020 Starboard Waterline: Flatwater Touring at its Finest

Posted on April 04 2020

BRAND NEW IN 2020 is the Starboard Waterline, designed as a specialized flat-water Touring paddle board the Waterline promises the smoothest and most relaxing paddling sensation in conditions up to chin high chop. Not only is the waterline the newest and best flat water SUP of 2020, it consists of various options for those of different sizes or budgets. For the ultimate glide and construction check out the 14' Carbon Top Starboard Waterline or the 14' Lite Tech Waterline if you're looking for an affordable option or go shorter but maintain speed with the 12'6" Carbon Top Starboard Waterline

The Waterline's shape consists of a narrow v nose outline, parallel mid-section, and a wide tail to optimize efficiency in speed, tracking, and great stability when standing and walking back for power turns. 


This defined rail edge helps to keep water off the deck and sheer water off the nose. The narrowed tail on the bottom of the board reduces drag and planing surface, causing the speed of paddling to increase tremendously. 


A shape focused on achieving maximum speed and stability with no splash or sound. At 75% speed this hull is faster than Starboards race boards, so in essence for most riders it’s the quickest ride ever.
