Overview:

The ultimate summer shape, with a slightly fuller outline and a touch extra volume. Paddles well and generates heaps of drive and acceleration.The AMP is faster down the line, has increased rail-to-rail transition and is extremely stable when landing a variety of maneuvers.

Board Specs:

The AMP has a ton of curve in a short package, with a clean single concave running the length of the board and a relatively flat entry rocker allows for optimum speed generation. The carbon construction adds extra life and flex, making the board extremely fast and responsive. Features a thruster setup for improved maneuverability and that extra bit of control off the lip.

Designed to be ridden in small to medium surf by intermediate to advanced surfers.

Key Features:

  1. Slightly wider outline and extra volume for maximum drive
  2. Single concave for speed
  3. All round shape suited for progressive and fast surfing
  4. Flex Carbon Construction
  5. From as light as 2.2kg

Tech & Features

THE CORE

Flex Carbon is built from a stringer-less traditional Polyurethane foam (PU) core. Starboard has played around with a variety of different densities of foam depending on the desired weight, flex and compressional stability. By having a traditional PU foam core, we have been able to match the flex components of a traditional build by removing the stringer and perfecting the use of different fiber patterns.

CONSTRUCTION

In order to find the key to achieving a flex pattern that is equal and in some instances better than that seen in a normal PU Board, our development team underwent a rigorous testing process to find the perfect combination of fiber orientations, carbon strengths and outer/inner densities. With the introduction of this unique technology comes the launch of three progressive shapes: Black Magic, Flying V and Anaconda.
