I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 2013 Starboard Astro Touring 12’6″ Inflatable a little while ago.
This board is a game changer. Up until now, inflatables have been great for travel and storage – and “okay” for paddling around.
The Astro Touring family are still great for travel and where storage is an issue – – AND they are amazing paddling boards on flat water.
They will be coming in 12’6″ x 30″ x 6″ / 14′ x 30″ x 6″ and 16′ x 32″ x 6 (for hauling lots of gear or tandem paddling)
They even come in 3 colors so you can match (or not) with your friends.
I have 10 of the 2013 – 12’6″ models arriving in a couple of weeks – If you want to be the first in Canada to own one – come see me really soon.
