The downwind game changer for choppy water and open-ocean conditions, the 2019 14' x 23" 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.
