    WHERE THERE’S CHOP, YOU NEED POP 

    The downwind game changer for choppy water and open-ocean conditions, the 14' x 23.5" Ace is the ultimate downwind race board for lighter or more advanced riders.  

    "Catching bumps on an Ace is easy and fun, you get to use the power of the ocean to go faster instead of just paddling all the time. On an Ace you'll often stay in parallel stance and not even have to shift your weight back and forth, so it's great if you're not yet confident moving around on your board or surfing, but you want to go fast. The board really helps you to learn how the bumps work.  This is my personal pick of the Starboard fleet for downwinders. In 20-knots of wind this board just flies, while still allowing you to power upwind to get there. If you're wanting to move up to 14' and fly downwind, this is your board." - Victoria Stuart, PaddleFit Pro Coach and SUP Racer.

    • Designed for slightly more advanced riders paddling in choppy and open ocean conditions.
    • Curved rocker line for acceleration and entry onto bumps, connecting between waves and speed upwind.
    • Cockpit standing area has been extended for added sensitivity to trim up and down the board to stay forever-catching bumps.
    • High vertical side walls provide pop in chop and lowers the center of gravity for increased stability for the rider to exert maximum power with every stroke. Also restricts water entering the tray.
    • Widened inside the tray at the tail for more room placing your feet back for improved stability and buoyancy when buoy turning.
    • Added volume in the tail forces the tail to pop up immediately once submerged, minimizing drag.
    • NACA profile outline with its narrow tail provides an incredibly efficient release of water. 
    • Race Ultra Light Core Fin, a perfect combination for creating a well balanced behaviour in ocean swell and flatwater, with enough rake to go through seaweed.

    RIDER FEEDBACK

    “I choose the Ace when downwinding as it’s the most fun you can have with the wind at your back. It is also perfect for those really choppy days or when the ocean is like a washing machine. The ace is very forgiving as you are standing right on the waterline in the dugout position! Can’t wait until summer in Perth to get this board out again.” Michael Booth
