The Wide Ride (Whopper) 10’0” x 34” was the world’s first wide and short SUP wave board. It helped everyone go paddle surfing and made Starboard the instant leader in SUP surfing. We have developed this concept over the last 12 years and you will sense the trademark thin rails biting into the wave just like a smaller board and let you manoeuvre off the top and in bottom turns in ways not expected. The wider nose and tail outline make it ultra-stable and forgiving.
The thin rails mean you need less effort to turn on rail, as there is less volume holding the board back from sinking into the turn. The side fins are closer to the rail; which provides a quicker response. We have developed the Wide Ride concept into several sizes, all giving you stability with glide to catch waves easily. The smaller Wide Rides provide faster and tighter turning.
Our different sizes and constructions are here to fit your skills level, body size and expectations, your satisfaction guaranteed from 8’3” x 30” to 11’0 x 36”.
