I hate to have to do this to myself, but my beloved Starboard K15 AST needs to find a new home.
Its been an amazing board but at the end of the day, it just doesn’t get out on the water as often as my other boards.
If I lived closer to Deep Cove where the water is more consistently glassy then it’d be my go to board almost every day of the year, but the less protected waters around West Vancouver where I usually paddle tend get a lot more wind and cross chop, so from here on in I’m going to be focusing on boards that might not be quite as fast, but offer up better stability and performance in the chop.
Once you get a handle its initial tippiness, the K15 is without a doubt the fastest and smoothest SUP around… But don’t take my word for it, do some Googling to see how popular and highly regarded this board is.
All that said, I wouldn’t necessarily suggest the K15 as a “starter” board, but once you’ve got some experience under your belt, or if you live in an area where calm water conditions are the norm, then this board should be a no-brainer addition to your quiver.
I’ll probably be kicking myself once she’s gone, so act fast before I change my mind!
