ZERO is the lightest full carbon hollow construction in SUP Race History.

6+ years of development, ZERO is our first production hollow construction.

The game changer technology, first introduced in 2023 with Sprint series, is made from the highest grade carbon for the lightest, stiffest and strongest ratio possible.


Over 3kg lighter than Carbon Sandwich and over 4.5kg lighter than Wood Carbon.



3+ board lengths faster over 50 strokes when testing with our Dream Team riders at Starboard HQ.

Developed alongside our top Dream Team Riders to test the construction and speeds in real world scenarios. Our team has been astounded with the speed and glide from the ZERO construction.


The secret to the ZERO technology is the premium sandwich hollow layup. The hollow construction is a 100% biax carbon fiber sandwich technology with double carbon layers around a PVC body, featuring unidirectional carbon fiber and PVC for reinforcement.


Multiple PVC stringers connect the deck and bottom structure, creating an ultra solid frame at the lightest possible weight.

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.

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.
