Why choose a Starboard SUP?
The Starboard brand has a slightly different approach than other brands. The brand was founded in 1994 by Svein Rasmussenwho was a real windsurfing champion. So his ideas for new windsurfing boards came from experience of the sport. As a result, the Norwegian developed boards that were primarily aimed at high performance. One of the first boards to emerge from the experience of the top athlete was the Starboard GO.
Today, the brand works closely with top athletes and champions from the world of water sports. The boards are therefore fully adapted to the wishes and requirements of top athletes, which guarantees quality and performance. This is what they also do with the SUP boards that are becoming more and more popular. Are you still looking for a quality SUP board? Then a Starboard board is always the right choice!

Within these categories you can also distinguish between touring, racing, all-round, yoga and Starboard Windsup's.

What are the most important properties?
If we are going to look at the characteristics of the Starboard SUP boards, we can link them back to the innovative techniques that have been applied. These are mainly the technologies in the field of inflatable SUP boards. Thanks to these technologies, the boards are more durable, stiffer, lighter and more manoeuvrable than ever before. Below we briefly discuss the applied technologies of the inflatable SUP's with you.
Welded Rail Technology
The rails of the board are generally the most vulnerable to leaks. This is because the rails (sides) of the board hold two components together, namely the deck and the base.
Starboard has chosen to combine the two separate parts by means of a special technique to each other. In this way, the deck and the bottom are attached to each other by means of heat. This reduces the risk of leakage in the long run, compared to the use of glue. The boards of this brand are therefore also more robust and durable.
Woven Dropstitch Technology
Thanks to the woven drop stitch technology Starboard's inflatable SUP boards are lighter, sturdier and more manoeuvrable. The technology is located in the core of the board between the two PVC layers. Between the PVC layers polyester yarn This results in a sturdy shape of the board and achieves a high level of stiffness. This results in the board's sturdy shape and the achievement of a higher stiffness.
We then looked at what could be removed to maintain the same performance, but make the board lighter. For example, the yarns in the board per square centimetre have been reduced, resulting in a lighter board. less material is used. The average weight of the inflatable SUP's has therefore increased by more than 1.5 kg decreased.
Double Room Technology
Safety on the water is, of course, also an important component. For this reason, Starboard has developed the double chamber technology created. The technology has been applied to all inflatable models since 2014. This ensures a higher stiffness, volume and better safety on the water.
The buoyancy of the board increases and is therefore ideal for persons of a higher weight. Lighter and smaller boards can therefore also be used by taller people.
