Hi Cris, just wanted to say how sweet the board is. Though I have nothing new I can compare it with, it is leaps ahead of the board I’ve been using. It’s only been on flat water, but certainly it’s ability to track is impressive. I’ve had no previous experience with Starboard, but it seems to be well built and light. I’ve not really put it to any test on durability, not that I want to bash it on rocks… incredibly stiff and solid on the water. Really happy with it and thanks again.
