Inflatable Paddle Board Technology

FROM STARBOARD’S 2022 COLLECTION

Starboard’s inflatable paddle board technologies mean our boards are, lighter more responsive and stiffer than ever before – so how is Starboard leading the inflatable technology development?

Our inflatable R&D team has worked closely with both team riders & manufacturers to develop innovative technologies like the Woven Drop Stich and heat Welding Technologies which we then incorporated them into our leading inflatable constructions featured in our iSUP range.

Inflatable Paddle Board Technology

Welded Rail Technology

STRENGTH + DURABILITY

Welding the rails is the only way to avoid a board leaking over longer term. Starboard has pioneered the most advanced and reliable rail welding technology by mechanically bonding the rail layers. This makes the board more durable, longer lasting and better for the environment.

Woven Dropstitch Technology

LESS STRETCH AND HIGHER STRENGTH

For five years we have been trying to create a new, innovative technology for our inflatable boards. We wanted them to be lighter, stronger, stiffer, more responsive.

Linear Dropstitch Technology

MORE RESPONSIVE • STIFFER • LIGHTER

No biax components, maximizing stiffness. Developed by Starboard and our supplier, for Starboard use ONLY.

Double Chamber Technology

ONE STEP CLOSER TO A HARD BOARD FEEL.

The double chamber stiffens the board significantly, thanks to the double side walls around it. The second chamber also offers extra safety floatation for any emergencies.

Airline Technology

FASTER THAN MOST HARD BOARDS

It’s all about combining our technologies to offer an inflatable paddle board with the feel and speed of a hard board.
