“A perfect board for future racers.”
We see younger and younger athletes at every race, many of them using a board that is proportionally too big for them. The All Star Junior is aimed for kids up to 40kg who don’t yet have the power to paddle a 12’6” board up to hull speed. It is perfectly dimensioned to get the best speed for kids’ strength and to ride in all conditions without being overwhelmed by the power of wind and ocean.
Design teams face many challenges; the toughest, staying ahead of the Race Team. Every season we provide some of the worlds most decorated paddlers with new designs; boards that have evolved. These designs need to be slightly ahead of the athlete.
We want to thank Brian Szymanski, John Becker, Bart de Zwart, Connor Baxter, Annabel Anderson and Zane Schweitzer.
STRATEGIC THOUGHT: THE CHOICE FOR A VARIETY OF CONDITIONS.
The 2015 All Stars have more width up front in combination with more pronounced bottom concaves; this increases the stability and allows us to ride more narrow, faster boards. A benefit of a more narrow hull other than less friction, is that the paddle comes closer to the board and creates a more efficient power transfer also allowing for more strokes per side. The lower tail and nose rocker improves acceleration into bumps and makes it especially easy to connect to the next wave. The flat water speed is also noticeably improved with the enhanced rocker line which creates a longer, effective waterline.

“The best of both worlds!”
The “Race” was born by breading all the speed elements of the Sprint and some of the user-friendliness and sea keeping ability of the All Star. The Race has an efficient chop-penetrating-nose with its slender and round shape. It is a bit less stable than All Stars of similar sizes. The low front rocker maximizes the waterline and makes the board extremely competitive on flat water while it also catches small bumps quicker than the Allstar.
One board quiver that works as well in flat water race and chop.
A versatile offering.
