2023 Starboard Spice – New Surf SUP

The Spice is an all new wave range from Starboard that gives you incredible rail carving, impressive speed through sections and instant drive out of turns. It's a blend of the Wedge and Pro range. Question is, can you handle the Spice?

Press Release: Starboard

The design brief focused on offering more performance and progression than the Wedge, while being more user-friendly and forgiving than the Pro. The all wave performance of the Spice allows it to handle a range of conditions, from small beach breaks to overhead point breaks.

“I won the US National Title on the 6’9” Spice and I was loving how it felt. The all around feel is surprising me. The bevelled rail on the bottom kind of rolls into turns.”
• Zane Schweitzer

The Spice range was designed and developed in Portugal by the talented shaper Luis “Lacrau” and Ollie O’Reilly. We tested the Spice in a range of conditions at various beaches in Portugal, showcasing the shapes versatility to handle different wave types. Thanks to all the riders involved in the testing including: Franz Orsi, Trevor Tunnington, Benoit Carpentier, Daniel Hasulyo, Leonard Nika and Nuno Fradique.

Nice to see the bigger sizes look useable by intermediates. The smallest one is close to the size of a surfboard! Hopefully you will get a review of one up Beau?

Bevelled rails and a domed deck sounds like a tippy board so will be interesting to see whether they’ve solved that…the larger ones are certainly wide.

This looks the goods! Great to see a new surf specific shape that’s well considered with a good level of features to cater for performance and usability. 7’11 dimensions look sweet, may even consider one, see how you guys get on with it!

What happened to the paddling/surfing of last years tiny Pro 6’8″?

Yeah it looks like it could be a good one.
The 6’8 is going ok but not great for me…. For a start all the footage we had got lost in a major hard drive crash. (along with loads of other footage).
I can surf it but it needs to be perfect conditions and I need to be super paddle fit, which I’m not at the moment! I will endeavour to still make it happen on camera.

Wonder why there’s a big gap in sizes between 6’9″ and 7’11”
