Longboard Surf SUP Board Test 2021 / SUPboarder PRO Head To Head

In our third SUPboarder PRO test for 2021 we’re testing Longboard Surf SUPs – looking towards the Longboard shapes that will offer a good level of performance for the more experienced riders but also the boards that will help the improver/intermediate SUP Longboard surfer to progress into more performance surfing.

Great review, I like this new format and appreciate this kind of dialog between you, different background, weight and preferences.
For me 88 kg it would be interesting to hear about the bigger sized longboards like Stylemaster 10.6×30,5 or Starboard longboard 10×31
And how do they perform in comparison to a chunkier Wedge or Allwave with similar sizes.

Hi Kurt, thanks for the comment. We feel the larger longboard sizes from he brands would be a similar feeling to the ones we tested. Yes, they have a bit more volume, but the shapes are the same, so expect a similar feeling. When compared to the All Wave or Wedge, you’re definitely getting a more traditional longboard shape in the longboard specific shapes which means you can noseride much easier. The Wedge and All Wave surprised us with their turning ability. Are you keen to know about the 8’8 All Wave @ 135L or 8’7 143L Wedge compared to… Read more »

Hi Beau, thx for your answer and the insights. It would be interesting to here more about the longer models like the Starboard Longboard 10×31.

The best one yet! Love the new format! SUPS are near impossible to test where I live in Northern USA, so this information is so helpful. Plus, learning about the shapes / fins / experience of riding all these boards is an education about sup surfing. Can’t wait for the performance video.

Great work there, really like the back and forth format & perfect timing for the round up seeing as I’ve just finished watching your long board “how to ” stuff.

Gotta say I’m a little disappointed Sunova haven’t thrown their hat in the ring with you guys. I can test them myself over here in Oz but it would be good to see you guys and gal’s going over them, you do such good work on your reviews & they make a great board

We tried very, very hard to get some Sunova boards in these tests but there were some issues at their end getting the boards to us. Hopefully we will have some boards from them in the next tests.
Thanks for the comment.
