The Starboard 12'6"x27.5" Race is the slightly narrower sister of the 12'6"x31.5" Race board. It is also a board which excels in windy and choppy conditions, but it is mostly suited for a heavier rider. The board is available in two construction technologies: Red Stripe Brushed Carbon and Blue Stripe Glass Epoxy.

The Glass Epoxy model is oriented to the everyday racer, as it offers a balanced strength to weight ratio and it is more affordable, while the Brushed Carbon model is oriented towards the competitive rider, as it has a quicker response and it is much lighter. The Brushed Carbon model is built using a full deck and bottom wrap of biaxial carbon and PVC foam and a light paint job.

The Starboard 12'6"x27.5" Race delivers impressive tracking, stability and gliding performance. It accelerates with every stroke and it is able to maintain a good speed on long distances. Since it is a race board it does not impress with its maneuverability, but it is yet easy to handle. The Starboard 12'6"x27.5" Race can be considered an all round race and touring board. It is not aggressive and can be driven without much effort. It excels in open ocean.
