The Flying V is a modern rendition of a performance fish and is rapidly becoming the favourite alternative board for the R&D team. It has a clean wider outline, putting fun back into those small wave sessions. The Flying V is a simple redo of the classic fish shape that is simple, loose and easy to ride.


Board Specs:

This board has flatter rocker throughout the whole outline. The bottom consists of a deep double concave combined with big V in the tail allowing the board to release when needed. Ridden a few inches smaller than your traditional short board.


Ideal Wave Size:

Designed to be ridden in small to medium surf for entry level, intermediate and advanced riders.

Tech & Features


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.


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.
