With the Stylemaster, I think you actually get a 6” centre fin with this version of the board. The 8” fin comes on the 30.5” width 145 litre board. Perhaps you switched out the fins sometime since last year’s test.

Hi Beau,

Great video as always. I’ve currently got a 12’6×28 generation and sometimes play about on some standing waves, but haven’t yet taken it to the beach yet.

If I was to buy a dedicated SUP surf board, would I find a longboard too close to my Generation, or would it be quite different on a wave?

Cheers

Daniel

94kg and own a Starboard Longboard 10x29x123l and love it.
Especially when waves become steeper and bigger the Starboard is so much easier to drop, turn but also to paddle out. On small stuff it simply surfs almost too good for its size.
Demo-ed the Stylemaster, but imo a too flat and too wide board.
Maybe for next year: The Jimmy Lewis black and blue is imo the best nose riding longboard I ever tried. Its tipy, a mediocre turning single fin, but on its nose and in glide a class apart.

Hi Beau, enjoying your tests and videos so thanks. Spotted at about 10:30 in the video and you turn the starboard longboard over, the featured board is a Wedge 8’7 X 32 so just a bit confused!

hello I would like to buy a fanatic stylemaster 2023
I would like to know if compared to the 2022 model only the graphics changes and I am undecided between the size 28.5 and 30.5.
I weigh 83 kg I have been doing sup for 2 years and I am improving my supsurfing.
I have been coming for 20 years of windsurfing
I currently have a naish mana 9.5 would you change it for the stylemaster or maybe it would be better to keep the naish?
Thank you
tony

Hi Beau, I’m discovering the SupboarderPro contents and it looks great. I share 2 questions about Stylemaster 10×28,5 : Is there a significative difference between 2021 and 2022 models ? Another question : i saw here that 2021 and 2022 models weight around 9,6kg, but the same model for 2024 on Fanatic website is announced to 8,7kg, with a similar technology if i’m not wrong, so it’s surprising. Can you confirm this difference of weight between 2024 and 2021-2022 on this model (1 kg is huge) ? I know having some weight for a longboard is not always negative on… Read more »

Thanks Beau for your accurate answer. Weight informations look a bit touchy, sometimes it’s not present on official brand website or sometimes not well replicate by dealers website. I would be happy to find a 10×28 under 9kg.
