Starboard SUP - THE WALL – The Inflatable with a Recessed Deck
Similar to the composite board’s dugout concept, the design on this board allows you to stand close to the water on the 4.75” thick bottom, whilst using the 2” side walls to generate secondary stability, and stiffness, creating a 6.75” board.
Through standing closer to the water, you will have more stability and save balancing energy, ultimately aiding energy for acceleration in more challenging conditions.
Rail steering will become your new joy, as turning the board is easier with the recessed deck. Step back turns are also more comfortable, since the tail has thin back rails it is easier to sink and keeps you close to the water.
The Wall helps your luggage stay dry and safe under bungee cords. Plus, a new drainage tray creates a soft stance when paddling, but helps drain the water off the standing area and out of the cockpit faster. Parabolic rail reinforcements on the bottom of the board compensate the strength of 2” layer on the dock.
What size of the Wall if right for me?
12’6”x 28” – This is the most manoeuvrable model in the range. The thin tail allows you to perform easier and faster turns, but you can also use this board to paddle fast without lost stability as it’s outline is based on the racing boards with the added 2” double layer.
14’0” x 28” – As the longest and narrowest in the range, the Wall is your choice if you are looking for fast cruising. Suitable for riders up to 100kg or if you are carrying only small luggage. The board is quite manoeuvrable due to the thin rails, which also enables for rail steering with the board thanks to the added secondary stability of the 2” second layer.
14’0” x 30” – The perfect choice for your long expeditions with loads of gear, or if you are a rider under 110kg because at 30” wide this board is heavy duty. The secondary stability of the second layer combined with the bungee tie downs will keep your luggage safe, while you enjoy the benefits of a recessed standing area.
