The 2021 Starboard 14′ Waterline. Fastest and Sleekest Designed Touring Board
The 14’0″ Waterline was designed with a shape focused on achieving maximum speed and stability with no splash or sound. The sleek hull design allows the Waterline to perform faster than the Starboard race boards at 75% speed. Making it one of the quickest rides ever.
Designed as a specialised flat-water touring board, the Waterline promises the smoothest and most relaxing paddling sensation in conditions with light chop.
Highlights of the Design
Narrow V-Shape Nose
The v-shape nose design slices through water without disturbance or splash, creating a feeling of pure efficiency and speed. The narrow nose also helps the board track in a straight line.
The narrowed nose gradually widens into a more parallel mid-section and wider tail section to provide maximum stability.
Cutaway Tail Design
Inspired from years of success in windsurfing the cutaway at the tail increases the speed by reducing drag from narrow wetted surface area. This allows for a narrowed down surface while planing, yet provides a fuller tail for stability.
Recessed Standing Area
Provides the paddler with a lower center of gravity for increased stability and control.
Nose and Tail Bungee Tie-downs
- 4 x bungee inserts help secure gear and supplies on the nose.
- With 2 extra bungee inserts on the tail, perfect for carrying gear for longer distance paddlers.
This Touring SUP is suited for all skill levels that want the fastest glide to paddle distances quickly with comfortable stability and the option to carry gear along the journey.
