2018 Starboard Ace
Win a CORE XC Wing this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
The new Starboard Ace, designed for choppy water and downwind riding, not everyone is blessed with great water conditions, so this board helps to smooth things out and offer maximum performance, oh and the is an EIGHTEEN foot version too, you know for when you absolutely have to take out everyone else in the car park…
When there’s chop, you need pop. With the new improved nose shape this board just wants to keep going and going, the added volume allows the board to pop through chop whilst hammering upwind, prevent pitched when downwinding and also gives you super easy catching ability for any bump.
The heightened sidewalls allow for more grip on the waves, less rolling and less splash into the cockpit. On the top of those sidewalls we’ve also added more beach hand mounts to make the board easier for beach starts. The inside tail of the board has been widened with more dug-out rails, this creates more room for your back foot when buoy turning and surfing. The board has been made with a lighter highest grade Biaxial carbon technology, combined with pigment infused resin this is the fastest and lightest Ace ever.
