2018 Starboard Wide Point 8’10” review / Intermediate surf
2018 Starboard Wide Point 8’10”x 32” Starlite / £1199

In this SUPboarder review we are surfing the new 2018 Starboard Wide Point 8’10” in their Starlite construction. The Starboard Wide Point range consists of 5 boards all being 32” wide. The 8’10” is a board that is relatively short for its width, making it a fun, stable, user friendly board for beginner SUP surfers. But also an outstanding board for 80-90kg intermediate surfers wanting a board to throw around on a wave.
