The pulled in nose and tail outline of the Starboard 10'5" Wedge are the chief reasons for the board’s excellent speed, creating a streamlined shape that moves through the water with ease and assists in the smooth release of water off the tail section. The bottom shape consists of a mono-concave nose, which feeds into a heavy midsection V and double concave, making rail-to-rail transitions incredibly easy. This then feeds into the tail concave, which itself enables super-tight and fast cutbacks, assisted all-the-more by the length and weight in the board’s nose, adding its momentum to turns. As such, there are only a few boards in which glide and manoeuvrability are combined so completely, as they are in the Starboard 10’5 Wedge.
