The Starboard 9'8" x 29" Pro is “the choice for waves of consequence”, as the Starboard team says. It is part of the new surf SUP board line introduced by Starboard in 2012 and it is the kind of board which can handle serious sized surf. The board offers impressive maneuverability, good tracking and gliding abilities, but it is not extremely stable. That is why it is recommended to riders with good balance, who have good skills and love an exciting drive.

The board uses a continuous single concave hull design, ending in a slight tail V. This design assures good speed and quick acceleration, as well as good maneuverability and turning performance. The increased nose rocker improves late drop performance, while the low apex rails assure good speed and maneuverability in powerful waves. The board also has excellent carving abilities and offers perfect turns. The Starboard 9'8" x 29" Pro comes in four different construction technologies: Brushed Carbon, Wood, AST Silver and AST Candy.

The Brushed Carbon model is extremely responsive and the lightest of the series. It uses a full deck and bottom wrap of high quality biaxial carbon and PVC foam structure. The Wood model features an impact resistant wood deck and it is a bit steadier in shifting waves, the AST models have a balanced weight and are very durable. The AST Silver model can be used as a windsurfing board, because it features foot strap and mast inserts. If you need a board which can handle serious wave conditions, the Starboard 9'8" x 29" Pro is the perfect choice.
