Starboard SUP

Back in 1994 the very first precision-molded wood veneer boards were introduced. Three years ago starboard brought the world first carbon PVC sandwich wave boards. Last year another 5 to 10% of weight was shaved off from the lightest boards, and then another 5% was shaved off for the 014 Pro Boards.

Starboard was the first brand to introduce full-deck EVA deck grip to surf, windsurf and paddleboards. Starboard offers boards up to 39″ wide, leading the way in the wide and short-board revolution. Some six years ago when the 10’0″ x 34″ Whopper was introduced, the world was taken by storm. This shape of board continues to be the most popular to date.

Provides enough glide for flat-water cruising, good stability for catching waves and exciting performance once up and riding.

High performance, yet stable shapes for dedicated wave riding.

From chop to ocean swell, flat water to beach race starts, the fastest, the most efficient boards that cross the finish line first.

Construction

  • The lightest technology.
  • The strongest build method
  • The quickest response.
  • Light paint job to reduce weight.
  • Full deck and bottom wrap of high quality biaxial carbon.
  • Full deck and bottom wrap of high density foam.
  • Fused Cell core
  • Ultra-light Startouch deck grip.
  • Hexcel center and side fins

The world’s lightest paddle boards are created by using an ultra light Biaxial carbon technology laminated onto water resistant high density foam sandwich and a Fused Cell core. We optimized the angles of the carbon weave introducing flex into paddle boarding. Our Brushed Carbon wave boards are up to 3.5 Kg lighter than our AST technology.

Available in most sizes, no race boards.

  • Full PVC clear UV protection film.
  • PU painted ding-resistant rails.
  • Impact resistant wood deck.
  • Three-quarter deck pad with 3mm square-groove EVA foam in the standing area, 2mm EVA fore and aft
  • All boards 9’8″ and shorter feature an integrated EVA kicker on the tail.
  • Hexcel center fins.
  • Pro models have Hexcel side fins, Starboard flex side fins for other models.

The full deck 0.6mm 510kg/m3 density Australian pine layer is combined with three-dimensional 400g glass mat onto a Fused cell core.

The volume created during expansion within the skin turns the lay-up into a stiff, durable, yet light sandwich construction.

  • 3/4 deck pad with 3mm square-groove EVA foam in the standing area, 2mm EVA fore and aft with light-weight Startouch deck traction on the nose.
  • Windsurf mast inserts are provided on most models.
  • Most boards under 10’0″ have foot-strap inserts for windsurfing.
  • All boards 9’8″ and shorter feature an integrated EVA kicker on the tail.
  • Hexcel center fins.
  • Pro models have Hexcel side fins, Starboard flex side fins for other models.

AST technology features a light-weight Fused cell core and uses layers of three-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 light-weight sandwiched laminate. A 3/4 deck wood layer improves rigidity, and deck impact resistance.

  • Same great Starboard service and warranty systems.

Starshot Technology features a dense fused water resistant precision molded EPS core.

Additional layers of Military grade fiberglass and epoxy resin makes Starshot a tougher construction offering.

A half-deck wood layer improves rigidity and deck impact resistance.
