AVAILABLE LATE 2012 – Contact us for pricing and availability

 

BRUSHED CARBON

The ultimate experience!

Paddleboards are relatively long so swing weight is simply crucial. Every 100 grams saved can be felt when carving on a wave.

Our Brushed Carbon wave boards are up to 3kg lighter than our AST technology which already is the industry benchmark for light weight, strength, and durability. The incredible weight saving makes the Brushed Carbon boards feel 1 to 2 feet shorter and accelerate more quickly than our standard construction.

By far the lightest possible technology in the market, these boards are crafted by the most experienced workers ensuring the highest precision in every step in the birth of the board. The boards are monitored by the tightest QC system available and we spend our valuable time inspecting them for you to ensure you receive EXACTLY the same shape that we spent years designing.

The board construction features a combination of an ultra light, flat-weave biaxial carbon and medium density high quality PVC sandwich foam wrapped around a light density EPS core. The first board construction in the World to utilize an ultra light carbon fibre that is flat-weaved for total mechanical efficiency at half the specific weight of regular carbon weaves. The first real performance technology to be introduced to the world of paddle boarding: lightest weight, quickest response.

The light white paint job is brushed to further reduce weight. High density PVC foam reinforcements are used around inserts. Brushed Carbon models feature ultra lightweight Startouch deck grip.

• All center fins are Blue Starboard Hexcel

• Side fins are Blue Starboard Hexcel and flex fins.

Key Selling Points:

• Lightest board on the market

• Light weight allows for faster turning and acceleration

• Proven durability

• Easier to carry

 

 

AST SILVER

Maximum durability and Value

AST technology uses layers of 3-dimensional 400g glass mat wetted out
with an expanding epoxy resin system that creates volume within the
skin as it cures under pressure. This creates a thick, stiff, durable, yet
lightweight sandwiched laminate. A half-deck Wood layer improves rigidity
and deck impact resistance.
 
Advantages: Tough and light construction, more value, most durable
offering.
 
All AST Silver models feature the following:
• Silver PU painted ding resistant rails
• 3/4 Deck Pad with 4mm square-groove traction EVA foam in the standing
area and 2mm EVA fore and aft with light weight Startouch deck traction
on the nose.

WOOD

 

Starboard and Jean Louis Colmas from New Caledonia introduced the
wood veneer molding technology to the board industry in 1993. 19 years
later we proudly introduce the strongest and most value orientated wood
construction to date. The full 0.6 mm Australian pine deck at a density of
510 kg/m3 is combined with 3-dimensional 400g glass mat wetted out with
an expanding epoxy resin system. The volume creation during expansion
within the skin turns the lay up into a stiff, durable yet light sandwich
construction.
 
Advantages: Beautiful, tough and light construction, more value, our
most durable offering.
 
All Wood models feature the following:
• Red PU painted ding resistant rails
• 3/4 Deck Pad with 4mm square-groove traction EVA foam in the standing
area and 2mm EVA fore and aft with light weight Startouch deck traction

ASAP

As Strong As Possible
 
Soft Top Hard Bottom Technology: Our “soft & tough” construction for our
collection of low maintenance, user-friendly family products. Single Wood
stringers introduced overall stiffness. Wood half-deck provides extra impact
resistance on the deck. Hard bottom material gives a smooth bottom finish
within a material that is tough, wear resistant and maintenance free. Full
EVA deck for a soft, comfortable touch. The EVA is grooved in the most
important areas.
 
High density EVA around the rails for increased impact resistance. This high
density EVA has been further toughened through a thermoform process
which increases the surface density.
 
Soft sponge tail bumper for safety.
 
Available in 9’0” x 30”, 10’0” x 34”, 11’2 x 30” and 12’0” x 33”
