THE FASTEST GOT EVEN FASTER

The Sprint concept is designed to be the fastest and most efficient flatwater board ever, and the range of 2024 boards caters for flatwater racing and ultra-distance racing.

In 2024 we have achieved a wider and more stable range, while refining the hydrodynamics of the hull design to deliver even more speed and glide.

 

🏅 Arip Purnama won Junior Sprint race at 2023 ICF World’s Championship in Thailand on this board and Andrey Kraytor set the fastest 200m Sprint time – 47.95 sec

INSTANT ACCELERATION, AMAZING TOP-END SPEED

A new thicker slicing nose design displaces water with a cleaner release so you can paddle faster with less water wrapping and slowing you down.

AVAILABLE IN ULTRA LIGHT ZERO TECHNOLOGY

​​Zero is the lightest construction we have ever built, allowing for unbelievable glide and speed. The Sprint ZERO features a three-hole drainage system – the forward pigtail pipe is a one way air ventilation system which allows the Hollow board to breathe.

NEW SLICING NOSE

The ultra thin nose slices through flatwater conditions and is the most efficient design.

STREAMLINE OUTLINE

With a more parallel outline than our previous sprint model, the sprint achieves faster speeds and vastly improved stability.

NEW ROUND TAIL

Our most efficient tail design ever reduces wash and improves glide.

ROUND HULL DESIGN

Our fastest and most efficient hull design ever has been digitally designed to give the most efficient glide, and tested in the real world in various flat and semi-flat conditions. This hull allows the board to maintain higher speeds over a longer distance.

NEW WIDE POINT FURTHER FORWARDS

The inner walls in the Sprint have been shaped for maximum standing area width for comfort, stability and control.

NEW VOLUME REDUCTION

The front of the cockpit has been reduced in volume where possible, to achieve a lighter and more open design.

NEW FLAT TAIL ANGLE

Comfortable in kick turns and when standing further back, the volume and slope has been reduced at the back of the standing area to achieve a lighter and more comfortable board.

NEW RECESSED CARBON SCUPPER SYSTEM

Carbon scuppers sit flat on the bottom of the Sprint, resulting in an even more efficient hull flow. The carbon scupper system is recessed into the board and features a larger hole for even faster water flow from the deck.

NEW 10” FIN BOX

The 10” fin box gives riders flexibility to adjust their fin depending on race style. Short course racing would benefit from a fin further forward for fast turning, while longer races suit a fin further back in the box. Box placement varies for downwinding as some riders may prefer less or more tracking when surfing bumps.

NEW TAIL VEE

For the best release and tracking in flatwater, giving the best efficiency and control.

NEW BUNGEE-TIED OWN

Ensures a dry ride for your gear/ equipment/ luggage. Available in 14’0″ x 27″ and 14’0″ x29″

EVA RACE DEFLECTOR

Designed for larger ocean chop, the deflector diverts water from entering the standing area.

NEW BOARD SOCK

Reduces paper waste while protecting your board from dust, scratches, and UV damage. Made with stretchable polyester, it fits various board shapes. Ensure optimal board maintenance with the iconic blue Board Sock, featuring a secure drawstring closure.

Board weight tolerance +/- 5%

For every board Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation.

Each tree absorbs 673kg of CO2 during its first 25 years.

50% of absorption goes towards offsetting this board & 50% is secured as carbon credits to fund livelihood projects in Myanmar.

The average emission from a Starboard board is 100 kg CO2.

By planting 3 trees per board we offset this 10 x over.

The Sprint has an average carbon footprint of 168.47 kg CO2e per board.

1.4 kg of trash is collected per board by starboard pop crews at beaches in Thailand & Myanmar.

Globally, an individual is responsible for 1.4 kg of plastic reaching the ocean every year.

Starboard balances this amount for our customers.

The Sprint has an average plastic content of 11.28 kg per board.
