Starboard Pro
« on: February 27, 2017, 05:12:58 PM »
I took a spin on a 7'4x25.5 78L Pro today.  After about 15-20 flops, I figured out where to place the feet, paddled around and caught waves.  At 150lbs (soaking wet in a Patagonia R3), the tail was buried 3 to 5 inches under the water and thus moving around was required.  Once in the wave, the thing is a ripper.

Nice looking sup. I know you'll enjoy it. Hope you have many great sessions with it.

Thanks for posting the photos of it.

Very cool. I'm pretty much the same size as you and am strongly considering getting a board with similar specs & shape for the fall if things go well between now & then. Is it a permanent addition to your quiver? Would love to see some pics of you out on it if you get some (including at rest).

Very nice. I have a 2017 8'x28" Pro on the way. Was planning to lose a few lbs before it arrived. That didn't happen...
Will post pics when it comes in.

Surfafrica - Not going to be in the quiver.  However, the owner is a good friend and daily SUP buddy so I do have unlimited access to all of his Starboards (Nut and few Pros of various sizes).
