Starboard's New IQ handle for the 2015 models

The new IQ handle is constructed from EVA to provide a soft and comfortable feel when carrying the board. 
The handle itself is designed as two separate compartments. The outer layer is made of ABS and compressed into the EPS core and then secured with a layer of glass. The EVA handle is then fitted into the box sealed with a layer of silicon. 
This means the EVA handle is not fixed internally to the board, eliminating the chance of cracking or damaging the glass of EPS core. 
The large size and inside grip allows for generous hand sizes to produce a great fit.
go to for mor great technology and board designs.

Sunday , Small wind waves

Ricky, Jesse and I shared some fun little waves today. The water cooled down a lot. I would say its below 60"F so booties will be out our next session.. Here are some of the pics below..
Today I was Lucky to get on my new 2015',  8'-8''  AirBorn  from Starboard. Very stable board and I was able to get it moving on the knee thigh high waves. Lots of positives and i'll do a review of the board to follow..

Happy Halloween

To my surprise , a few unexpected thigh high waves started to roll thru with the NE fetch.. Wind were light so it made for some great little waves. Had to put on the Banana suit for a few rides..  
Looks like a building swell but much cooler temps expected. May have to pull out the neoprene. Winter is on its way..   

Bye Bye warm water and air temps. Last session in the trunks..
