Our leanest, lightest, value-oriented inflatable paddle boards – with the best core essentials.
Built with single layer Linear Knitted Dropstitch, Welded Rail Technology and 2000D Galvanized Rails, makes the Zen Construction even stronger and stiffer than before. The single-layer Linear Knitted Dropstitch was developed by Starboard in close cooperation with its supplier and is for Starboard use ONLY.
The tool-less fin system is quick and easy to set up, now with a long and strong fin box.
The new Double Chamber option offers greater strength and stiffness and is the winner in the pricepoint offering.
OUR LEANEST, LIGHTEST AND MOST BUDGET-ORIENTED CONSTRUCTION
MORE RESPONSIVE, STIFFER, & LIGHTER. FEEL IT!
Linear alignment of space yarns, oriented only in warp direction ( the direction of the board’s length), maximizing the stiffness and response.
Linear dropstich also secures the board’s shape better over time compared to standard knitted dropstitch.
Linear dropstich with single layer coating is the lightest offering in our collection.
What does it mean for you? An ultra light board with the best stiffness that single layer technology can offer, you can feel the acceleration.
WELDED RAIL TECHNOLOGY
Every Starboard inflatable paddle board features welded rails.
The Welded Rail Technology creates a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. This makes Starboard inflatable paddle boards stronger and longer lasting.
Optional on some models
The chamber offers up to 42 liters of safety floatation, with 14 liters even in the smallest boards and require only 10 PSI. Starboard pioneered Double Chamber Construction in the 2010 Ocean Rescue paddle board. Future coast guard regulations will possibly request this safety arrangement for inflatable board use in open waters.
DOUBLE I-BEAM STRINGER
The innovative chamber doubles the sidewalls and acts like rollable I-beams. Starting just behind the standing area and continuing towards the front, the chamber is placed in the most critical area for flex and reduces deflection by 1.8 cm. The feeling of paddling with the stiff double I-beam stringer is getting very similar to a hard board, propelling inflatable technology one step closer to a “hard board” feeling. A must-have for riders over 85 kg.
