Interesting that you should mention the touring capabilities of the Allstar. I have used my 14×27 Allstar for a multi-day SUP camping trip. (Full length of the Pumicestone Passage from top to bottom 36km) I had to get pretty creative with rigging up the rear bungies (without modifying the board) using the rear leash hole, but it can be done. Though I must admit when the wind started to blow I was at a severe disadvantage to my brother who was in his FSK (Fast Sea Kayak) but I held my own most of the way until then. Perhaps on… Read more »

Great review as always. Can’t wait for the All-star / Generation comparison video as I’ve just received the 14′ Generation (litetec)….rode this All-star at a recent demo day along with the 2022 sprint (the new nose is a knife!) but the All-star sadly out of my price range! One thing in this video…you mention adding extra bungees for touring…the huge deck space at the back of the Generation is screaming out for this…got any tips for the best way to do this / which fittings to use that are still easily removed for surfing / downwinding? Cheers!

Richard, these soft pad eyes from Stic-It are what you need. They epoxy to the board but are so low profile that you won’t even notice them when in surfing or downwinding mode, and weigh practically nothing. Last time I enquired in 2019 the pricing was: 25mm pad eyes $20 ea, 25mm ULP pad eyes $22.50 ea, 40mm Handle mounts $27.50 ea. I’d suggest the 25mm ULP (Ultra Low Profile) are what you’d be wanting.

Hi Reuben and all at sup boarder
Great review as always. I was wondering if you had considered the infinity e ticket. I know it’s not a race board but it is a fast touring board and the new model has fore and aft bungies. I have just order one for next March from surf sup Bracklesham west Sussex. Really looking to putting it through its paces around the North Devon coast. Thanks for all you do at sup boarder pro. I’m looking forward to another action packed year of all things sup.
Cheers
Rod

I would say the Edge 3.0 from One is another good option in that versatile / race category. I’m paddling the 25.5″ width, but they also make a 27.5″ option that would be comparable to the All-Star or the RS in my opinion. Same issue – I wish there were D-Rings in the front and the back so I get more options for touring. But I think it’s a really capable board: very fast for fitness paddling and dabbling in your first races; but also stable in a wide range of conditions. I’m very fond of mine.

When is the Generation vs Allstar video coming out? I’m looking to get a 28 wide board very soon✨

Awesome… Can’t wait to see the Comparison of the Generation Vs Allstar 28″ I’m a big fan of the Allstar dugout because I like getting my feet wet when paddling… most boards keep your feet dry in normal days… I live in Florida so cold water is not a issue… I’m not sure if the 2022 version keeps your feet more dry? Did they raise the the dugout a bit and does the hole caps keep your feet more dry? I love the idea of getting a all around board like the Generation but I’m not a fan of dry… Read more »
