The new pro wave series of SUP board introduced by Starboard in 2011 gathers five models, each of them optimized for specific performance. If you want a board which is fast, powerful and easy to maneuver on the waves and can be used in pro competitions without hassle, you should check the 10'3"x28.5" Gun. The 10'3"x28.5" Gun should not be mistaken with the 10’3”x29” Gun from 2010. It is a different board, featuring a new design which provides increased maneuverability, as well as gliding and tracking abilities.

The board features a narrow, pinned outline and pinched rails which provide increased speed and better control. It has a fast rocker which gets you planning early, but assures safety from pearling. The 10'3"x28.5" Gun can tackle big waves very easy, but also run fast in flat waters. The sharper shape assures good acceleration and allows it to move fast in any conditions. It uses a mono concave to double concave bottom design which provides increased stability and allows the rider to experience a more fluid drive. The V in the tail assures excellent turns and a good release.

The10'3"x28.5" Gun uses a thruster fin setup, featuring a 170 Hexcel center fin and two M4.5" Hexcel side fins. It is engineered using Brush Carbon, TAC or Silver, Candy and Blue AST technologies. The AST boards offer increased durability, the TAC ones better dynamic shape stability due to the Wood structure and the Brush Carbon ones have a livelier response and are much lighter.
