Know Anything About This 10-3 Starboard SUP?
« on: May 19, 2023, 02:35:17 PM »
Does anyone know anything about this 10-3 x 29 Starboard SUP model? I am wondering about the year, model, construction, weight? It has a nice outline and isnít crazy wide like most of the long SUPís are now so Iím wondering how it surfs too?

I have looked all over the internet and the only image or pages Iíve seen shows something with a similar outline that was called a Surf Pro (or Pro Surf) and had that brushed carbon thing going on. It might have been a 10-2 though.  (Circa 2011-2012, I think.) Oh, and it didnít have that funky candy cane looking deck pad!

Thanks🤙🏼🏄🏻‍♂️👍

That is a 2010 Starboard Pro 10'3" x 29" x 4.3" 144L Gun Pro.
"The board you will use when the surf picks up.  When you need the glide to get in to the waves and the confidence to handle the drop.  With a classic gun outline, thinner deck profiles, rails and rockerline to match, it's all about the containment of high speed while still being able to initiate a turn and trust the board that's under your feet.  An interesting bi product of this shape is the endhanced glide well suited for light people wanting a board for calm water paddling.
Long mono concave running from nose and two thirds of the board, merging to double concave with fair amount of tail V.
Available in: Technora, TAC, Candy, Camo, Blue Touch"
I believe this is the Candy pad edition.
Stock fin: 8.3" center, 4.5" side.

I have the same year 8'5" x 29.5" x 4.1" 127L Pro Camo which weighs 21 lbs. 
The construction of these old Starboards is bomber.  I would much prefer a Starboard of this vintage than one of the modern garbage Starlite construction.
The deck is pretty flat, stability seems average.
I like having the longboard box, but generally prefer boards with quads.
Front fins boxes are fcs compatible, but I generally prefer futures.
The paint can chip with use, but I have yet to have a problem with it being water tight.
Still have the original deck pad, but it did need some contact cement tlc.
I had a Starboard ~2015 8'10" Carbon Wide Point but overwhelmingly preferred the 2010 8'5" Starboard Pro for wave riding.
If the price is right, I wouldn't hesitate about buying this board.

Here is the same thing in 2011
Starboard 10′3″ x 29″ Pro SUP Stand Up Paddle Board
I'm pretty sure that pad is the original "Candy" per below.

DIMENSIONS
Length   10′3″   (312.4 cm)
Width   29″   (73.7 cm)
Thickness   4.3″   (10.9 cm)
Tail Width   15.9″   (40.4 cm)
Volume      (144 L)

AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES
Brush Carbon, Tac, Silver, Candy, Blue

I was checking out that board and a slightly shorter version (9'8") back when I was first getting into sup (around 2010).
I'm remembering the "Pro" designation meant you needed to know what you were doing - those were considered
pretty narrow at that time.

I'd give that a whirl if I found one around here (at a reasonable price).

"Hereís a preview of Starboardís 10′3″ x 29″ Pro SUP stand up paddle board from their 2011 Pro Wave lineup. This board was shaped by Scott McKercher and Svein Rasmussen."
"A VERSATILE BOARD SUITED PERFECTLY FOR SURF AND FLAT WATER CONDITIONS.
The board you will want when the surf picks up. But it still performs in marginal conditions when you need the glide to get into the waves and handle late drops. With a drawn-out tail outline, thinner deck profiles, and rails and rocker line to match, itís all about the containment of speed while still being able to initiate a turn and trust the board under your feet. An interesting by-product of this shape is the enhanced glide well suited to lighter riders wanting a board for calm water paddling. Itís a testersí favorite and a fantastic board that enables endless progression in the waves.

Looks like a fun board.  I rode a similar model back in ... well, it was a while ago.  I remember going a wee bit dizzy looking at the deck pad.

Thanks for replying, everyone. Previously I could only find a couple images for what looked to be a similar model so I really appreciate it!

One of those pages showed that Starboard had a 9-1 Pro Wave for the same year with 127 liters that looks really nice. Man, wish I could find one of those.


P.S. I wasnít getting notifications, so had to make a change in my settings.

I think if I bought one with a deck pad like that I would probably want to replace it with an FCS because the FCS pads are so sticky and Iím not sure I could live with that freaky looking candy cane deck pad.

Anyone know if Starboard continued with the white paint under that deck pad?

The construction of these old Starboards is bomber.  I would much prefer a Starboard of this vintage than one of the modern garbage Starlite construction.

I am surprised to read that you donít like the Starlite construction. I bought a slightly used 8-5 Starboard Pro Wave Starlite a few years ago that was in perfect like new condition. Like a moron, I jumped off of a retaining wall to get down to the beach and dropped the rail on the pointy edge of a huge boulder with the full force of my 190 pounds behind it and was shocked to see that it did NOTHING to the rail. Not even a scratch! Any other board Iíve had and there would have been a HUGE gash. (Did something similarly dumb with a factory carbon Infinity RNB once and also zero damage.) I didnít like that Starboard so I sold it to a friend that loves it and a few years later itís still in excellent condition.
