Just purchased this 9’2″ Red inflatable SUP. Bought it mainly for travel. It fits in its own backpack bag that can be checked in as standard luggage. Tried it out this morning and it works great. Has two metal strips on rails to give 40% more stability. Easy to pump up too!
Here is a video of inflating & deflating the board.
Just added a 2015 Starboard Pocket SUP board to my quiver. Purchased at Pismo Beach Surf Shop, it is 8’5″ x 30″ and is fairly stable and extremely agile.
I received permission from FSU for a one-time use of one of their trademarked logos for a surfboard. I had Victim Boardart in St Pete do the artwork from a photo supplied to me by FSU. Then, Nick Cooper at The Craft in San Luis Obispo shaped and glassed the board. It is 6’3″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 5/16″.
I think it came out great and looks good in my den!
Just added a 14 foot inflatable to my quiver. Bought it primarily to use on the lake and for pier-to-pier treks. The Touring 14’0″x30″ is simply fast & has more glide and stability. All of Starboard’s Touring boards use super-stiff 6″ drop-stitch materials. Race Cone, designed for better rigidity, shape precision and strength, is the fighter plane inspired cone built into the critical nose section of all Astro Racers and Touring boards.
On my last trip to Florida, I bought an 8’6″ x 30″ Corvac (locally manufactured in Melbourne, Florida by A.J. Fin). Cannibal SUP board and a carbon-fiber paddle at the Paddleboard House in Indialantic. It has the 5 fin set up. It is a fantastic board, very maneuverable and super light. Thanks Dave for recommending it.
Added to my quiver with a 15 foot Starboard K15. Will use this one for long distance runs including around Bass Lake. Cooper may also enjoy being a passenger on the one we nick named “The Queen Mary”. It performed great on the recent Pier (Avila) to Pier (Pismo) race.
Added to my arsenal and started my Florida quiver by purchasing this 9’7″ x 23 1/4 x 3″ Claude Codgins Sunshine board from Core Surf Shop in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It is perfect for Florida waves and I had a great time on its maiden voyage.
