Starboard Pierce Touring 12’6″

WOW! Look at this board . . . . what a thing of beauty.
This is the new for 2012 Starboard Pierce Touring – in the 12’6″ size in the AST Wood construction.
This board is designed as a touring board for flat water – that is not only stable enough for beginners, but is also fast enough to make long paddles enjoyable.

The piercing design of the nose is to allow the board to slice through chop and not only remain stable, but also maintain speed.

For touring there are a total of 8 tie down spots (4 front and 4 rear) – an EVA deck pad in the standing area – and it also has Startouch deck traction from the pad to the tail of the board for grip if you need to take a big step back.

The board will be coming in the AST Wood pictured here, and also in Brushed Carbon.
There is also a 14′ version of the board coming in both constructions as well.

It will be THE board for lake and non white water river paddling.

Stay tuned for the arrival of the first production boards as well as the time line for our delivery early in 2012.

Looks stable and fast - all at the same time.
This is where the "pierce" in Pierce Touring comes from.
The squared off tail adds stability.
Love the nose!
I guess my "15 minutes" starts now?
