The all-new Wedge line upgrades the previous range of Wide Point boards. These boards have a pro performance and feel without compromising stability or volume. All boards are 32’’ wide to provide float and stability for heavier riders to rip.
This is a versatile range for big to small conditions, best suited for beginner and intermediate riders.
8’7″ x 32″ / 143L
Shorter, stable and sensitive. The thinner rails make the board respond and feel like a narrower board, sharing a similar characteristic to the much loved Airborn and Longboard ranges. The 8’7” really is the stable high-performance shortboard for those that want to rip yet have enough to make sessions longer.

NEW SHORTER NOSE OUTLINE
Makes it easier to rotate turns, tighter in the critical section of the wave, and makes it lighter to throw around through high-performance maneuvers.
NEW LOWERED NOSE ROCKER
Helps get into waves easily and early.
NEW THIN RAIL PROFILE
Thinner rails on the 8’7” and 9’2” gives the Wedge its pro level performance with faster surfing speeds, better grip, and turning capabilities. The thinner rails are inspired by the much loved Longboard range for the ultra-responsive and reactive feel.
Produces greater drive.
Generates lift, drive and speed as it channels the water from nose to tail, through to double concave for sensitive rail to rail turning from the midpoint, through to vee tail for reactive pivot turning on the tail.
NEW ROUNDED PIN TAIL
The Wedge has a new rounded pin tail to maximize the turning ability in these wider models. The new pin tail makes it easier to engage and sink the tail for faster bottom turns and top turns with more drive. Rounded tail also gives the board a better drive out of the turns.
FIN SET UP
Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf.
8’7″ features both thruster and quad. Quad fin set up uses 4 side fins and gives fast acceleration and instant down the line speed as it does not have a drag from the larger centre fin.
THE STRONGEST RAIL EVER TESTED
- Ultra-durable, scratch and impact resistant woven 200g twill azure rail protection.
- The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom to protect against total breakage. The T-stringers are positioned close to the rail working like an i-beam to endure heavy drops and strong wipeouts.
- Starlite now features a full deck of 0.6mm Australian pine wood which is outside of 2 glass skins, increasing the overall total breakage strength and reducing the weight due to lower resin absorption.
