Starboard has introduced a new line of compact wave SUP boards in 2011 to suit the needs of the more dynamic riders. The boards offer impressive maneuverability and are extremely quick to react on input. The POD is part of the compact wave series and it is the kind of board that appeals to high performance wave riders. It is the board which offers thrilling SUP action on waves. It has a very compact body which makes it feel lively and provides extraordinary maneuverability. The rounded outline makes it quick and fast.

The board can be fitted into almost any pocket and catches any wave without effort. Since it is a very dynamic board, it suits advanced riders that perform technical and daring maneuvers. The board turns tight and fast, it accelerates quickly and has a fast top speed. The board does not impress with its tracking abilities or with its stability, that it is why it requires a good technique to be mastered. It also does not pack volume in excess, but has good buoyancy.

The Starboard POD is available in Silver, Candy and Blue AST construction technologies. The Silver model is equipped with a 4mm 3/4 DECK PAD square-groove traction EVA standing area and with a Startouch deck traction system on the nose, the Candy one with Full 2mm EVA deck pads and 4mm square-grooved traction standing area and the Blue POD with an Ultralight Startouch deck traction system. The PODs are fast and agile boards. They take wave sup to an entire new dimension.
