2014 STARBOARD ALL STAR 14'
"It feels like you're paddling downhill"
Creating a race board for the world's fastest and most
demanding race team is a challenge. There is a legion of considerations when
creating a versatile race board.
WHAT CREATED THE MAGIC IN THE 2014 ALL STAR?
Lower rocker for more speed, bottom contours that create lift to enable a board
to go to glide, a nose that pierces rough seas and surf but also lifts so you
don't steer from the bow.
The 2014 Starboard All Star rounds a buoy fast and is quickest to go to glide, they call
that “coming out of the hole.” When you combine a sleek outline, complex
concave bottom, independent rail and center rockers, round-to-tucked sharp
rails and a volume distribution that creates a balance point, it allows the
paddler to minimize displacement/disturbance and maximize their stroke. From
that flawless balance point comes a board that allows you to paddle longer on
one side, track through quartering wind to stay on the mark, run the bump,
increase your stroke turn-over and hold top speeds with less effort.
