my new board: starboard impossible

Thought I'd share this, I love these interesting shapes that seem to excel at certain river waves. Hopefully I'll get out to Golden tomorrow to give it a shot.

6'6" x 30" x 4.5"

It's by far the best board I've paddled for flushy waves without good foam piles. It's excellent on waves like river right at Glenwood and Library Hole in Golden.

I have been looking at the Starboard Stream but think I am going to go with Streetfighter. I have always been hesitant with hardboards for waves in river because of damaging, but it sounds like that board would be ideal for larger waves like Glenwood.

That board looks fun! Short and super maneuverable. Hows the swim after, seems like wave train goes for a while? What watch are you wearing?

Swim gets longer and longer the higher the water gets The watch is a vestal.
