Description

The overall balanced glide experience and Deluxe features are what have made Starboard’s Touring boards become the world’s highest-rated by magazines and happy customers worldwide.
The narrow nose helps to shed water and makes you feel that ultimate glide sensation. The straighter midsection improves board stability and with the wider tail, you can step back more easily to perform a steady and balanced turn. Experience the Starboard difference even before entering the water, these lightweight paddle boards feature the trademark Starboard shoulder carry strap which allows you to effortlessly carry it to the water, with both hands-free!

Before you get on board, you can secure yourself with the included flat lightweight leash, paddle safely and comfortably knowing your board is a life raft. The Deluxe Double Chamber model even has a water bottle with a patented magnetic self-attaching attachment innovation. Thinking about double chambers, Starboard invented and introduced this stiffening and security concept back in 2014.

Join Bart De Zwart in his board of choice, the legendary ultra-long distant paddler and Guinness world record holder who explores the world through Stand Up Paddle Board.

NEW 2IN1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP

& PADDLE HOLDER

• NEW velcro loop to attach your paddle.

• Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and free up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.

• When not in use, the bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.

 

WINDSURF OPTION

• NEW Removable mask track

• Water-releasing rail edge technology

• Removable footstraps and centre fin box

• Available on 12’6″ x 30″ Touring

 

THE OUTLINE SHAPE

• The narrow mid section of the outline & wide tail make for fast glide as well as for stable and easy turning.

• Easy to hold the paddle close & vertical, which improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling.

 

WIDE TAIL

Makes the board more stable and super easy to turn.

 

RAIL EDGE TECHNOLOGY

Creates a sharp edge for the water to release smoothly for optimal glide and speed.

BUNGEE TIE DOWN

• A Bungee tie down in front of the board, for storing gear and supplies.

• The bungee is attached with 4 D-rings which can be used to clip on your bags and gears.

NEW TIKI PUMP

FAST, EASY, AND COMFORTABLE

• Fixed hose and manometer position when inflating.

• 10% more efficient thanks to the redesigned piston and outside tube for the air outlet. Plus, double and single action pumping modes and wider removable foot base that increases stability when pumping.

• The base and handle are made from upcycled fishing nets.

FREE LIGHTWEIGHT LEASH

• At only 70g, the leash is incredibly light and discrete so that it doesn’t interfere when paddling.

• Soft cushioning means it will compress and flatten when stood on.

• Easy to attach to the leash ring without needing any excess rope loop like on most other leashes.

• The leash cuff is made of Yulex, a natural rubber with 80% less carbon footprint than normal neoprene.

 

FCS INSERTS

• On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS
• STAR Mount supplied with every board to attach further accessories.

HEAT WELDED RAIL

BONDED FOR LIFE

• Welding technology turns 2 pieces of material into a single solid unit, resulting in an extra-strong mechanical bond.

• A mechanical bond is stronger, lasts longer and is better for the environment.

NEW FUSION WOVEN DROPSTITCH 

EXTRA STIFF, STRONG & LIGHT. FEEL IT!

 

Woven fabrics reduce stretch, hold more tension and create a stiffer board.

• The woven fabrics use less material than conventional dropstitch, creating a lighter board.

Fusion lamination of top and bottom layers is done in a glueless process,  increasing stiffness and creating a solid board, while reducing weight.

• What does it mean for you? A stiffer and lighter, durable board, with a reflex sensation you can

DELUXE DOUBLE CHAMBER

SAFER, STIFFER, LIGHTER

• The Deluxe Double Chamber brings the inflatable boards one step closer to a hard board feeling. The Double Chamber stiffens the board significantly, thanks to the double side walls around the second chamber. This chamber also offers extra safety flotation for any emergencies.

• The fusion woven dropstitch makes the Deluxe Double Chamber extra strong and stiff.
