2018 STARBOARD SUP 8'6" x 31.5" HYPER NUT STARLITE
8’6″ x 31.5″ HYPERNUT Refined outline with narrower tail area for improved acceleration and carving.
The Hyper Nut range is the most innovative wave board program we have ever launched, targeting riders hunting down World titles as well as entry level wave crew.
This Hip in the middle of the board helps the boards turning ability, the parallel outline channels water to flow around the board and the channels in the bottom are the basis for many hydrodynamic theories … a wide nose for stability and wide tail for speed and control but this hip helps the board surf with loads of speed and most importantly grip. This means improved performance in all conditions and because the Hyper Nut boards are shorter than your average SUP surf board they have less swing weight in the nose.
STARBOARD 2018 - 8'6 x 31.5 Starlite WEIGHT 9.41KG

Wide nose and tail combined with 31.5” width makes it an
extremely stable board for its relatively short length of 8’0”.

to riders of up to 110kg.
The amazing stability still retains rapid acceleration and speed,
super-tight turning radius for carving, vertical projection and
general feeling of life in the board.

All boards are supplied with 4 FCS Quad bio light core fins - 2 x 4.7" , 2 x 4.5"
These boards will definitely improve your surfing performance , however you’ll need to master the boards distinctive style of paddling technique and therefore the HyperNut is not really for general and flat water paddling . If you’re a intermediate SUP surfer and become stale in your SUP surfing and looking for a new board to make turning easier it could be a great consideration.
