The Starboard Longboard is an evolution of the classic surf shape. Smooth, stylish, simple.
Low volume rails, parallel outline and deep double concave create a board like no other in the range.
High performance Longboard that is versatile, incredibly responsive and smooth to turn.
Suited to ride in small 1ft beach breaks up to clean head high reef breaks.
Inspired by our legendary Starboard Surf Longboard model, designed to perform in waves from 1ft small beach breaks to head high reef breaks. The boards offer fast down-the-line surfing, as well as the ability to perform in the critical section of the wave. These cutting-edge shapes are totally well received by our team riders and anyone who have tested them.
10’0”x29” carries more glide and speed from the longer length. The 29” width provides a wider platform with greater stability for heavier riders.
“I really can’t express how good these boards perform and how fun they are to ride. Daniel and Bruno joined the test in Bali and we couldn’t stop smiling throughout the entire test session. It is 100% a must have in my quiver; the performance and style of riding is unmatched to anything else in the range.” ~Ollie O’Reilly
Outline: Parallel straight outline in the mid point provides a smooth fast glide that is easy to trim the board. Narrow diamond tail is extremely reactive in bottom turns. Fuller nose outline gives enough float and stability to ride toes on the nose for classic long board styling.
Rocker: Gradual nose kick ensures a smooth take off into waves without pearling. Relatively flat midsection delivers speed feeding into moderate tail kick for responsive turning.
Bottom Shape: Defined double concave from the nose through until a distinct vee at the tail. Prominent double concave mid section allows the board to roll onto its rail effortlessly to turn direction from the standing area. Pronounced vee tail makes turning very crisp and reactive, essential for fast bottom turns and off the top.
Rails: Low volume thinned out rails is fundamental in performance. Thin rails help easily engage with minimal foot pressure, giving control down the wave face and hold through steeper sections of the wave. The low volume rails makes it ultra responsive and sensitive to turn direction with speed and control. The flat deck improves stability and makes transitioning effortless from rail to rail allowing for drawn out carves and cutbacks.
Technology. Both Blue Carbon and Pine Tek models feature special reinforced layup with T-stringers and lightweight UD Carbon to stiffen the board and increase the overall strength needed from the thin profile.
Fin Position. After testing multiple fin positions, we chose to place the side fins very close to the rail. This enables carving with precision and hold through turns, while the center fin position gives tracking and drive.
Fin Set up. 170 center fin and 4.5” proved to be the most preferred combination of drive and tracking. For more tracking, a larger center fin can be used.

“A totally new model for 2019, the 10’ Longboard is a performance board aimed at more skilled riders. The first thing you notice is the super fine rails and you certainly feel these engage when bottom turning. For a longer board you can easily redirect from off the tail and use the double concaves to transition from rail to rail. If you are prepared to walk the board you can milk just about any wave.”
“The Longboard range is everything you’ve been missing in your quiver since Starboard started making SUP Surf boards. Whether it’s nose riding or drawing big carving turns, this is the most fun board! The longboard is so diverse and gives you that old school longboard feeling that is nearly priceless.”
