nakaniko, I can't offer any advice on the Serenity I'm afraid (but offer good luck) but I am interested that you windsurf in Venice having visited in 2007 and really enjoyed the place. I remember seeing some of the water of the lagoon on ferry trips back to St Marco from the island of Murano, from St Marco across to the strip of land that has the Adriatic beach and an early evening boat ride from the centre out to the airport. Do you sail somewhere in the lagoon? or from the Adriatic beach? Anyway, good for you, and I hope you find the Serenity works out well. Regards Barker
I am sorry, that has interfered... This situation is familiar To me. It is possible to discuss.

Default paddling on the Serenity on flat water ?- 2011 specs wrong?

Stand Up Paddling on the Serenity.
Yes Serenity is narrow, but as you can see from this video from BRA3, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6skGtOXKKGk, in quiet and flat water it seems not so impossible. Therefore a board not much wider (61,5) than usual standing stance (mine on a snowboard is 53 cm) pheraphs could help one of the common problem (not so much told about) of suping, as I can read and see, the damages when scratching with the row on the sides of the board.
What about? BRA3 a pro also in paddling or we middle-heavy guys (175cm x 90kg) can have some chance too?
Anyway this starboard sup has the concave but is only 2 cm wider http://www.star-board-sup.com/2011/p...11_14-x-25-ace
And then what kind of setup is suggested in paddling, as far as a long centre-fin is clearly not needed?
In fact on K15/Serenity new specs (http://www.star-board.com/SpringSumm...d_serenity.php) is told that is also provided also a "SUP Pin Fin 260" (as shown on sup Starboard website (http://www.star-board-sup.com/2011/p...name=2011_k-15), it seems a LARGER tail fin with us-box, so for paddling on Serenity: no central fin and the mini tail fin or larger us fin, or something else?
Last: pherhaps on the same page:
http://www.star-board.com/SpringSumm...d_serenity.php there colud be a mistake, as K15 is told to have 228 liters of volume, even if bigger sized but pheraphs because of center concave, Serenity 300 liters instead 256... But on the images 2011 Serenity seems not to be fatter or thinner, photos are exactly of the (marvellous) red and white board that I own.

Cheers from Nico from still freezing cold Venice Lagoon
