“Everything an inflatable touring paddle board should be.”

~ SUPBoarder Magazine

 

“This paddle board is packed with more features and manufacturing finesse than you can imagine.”

~ German SUP magazine

The overall balanced glide experience and Deluxe features are what have made Starboard’s Touring boards become the world’s highest-rated by magazines and happy customers worldwide.
The narrow nose helps to shed water and makes you feel that ultimate glide sensation. The straighter midsection improves board stability and with the wider tail, you can step back more easily to perform a steady and balanced turn. Experience the Starboard difference even before entering the water, these lightweight paddle boards feature the trademark Starboard shoulder carry strap which allows you to effortlessly carry it to the water, with both hands-free!

Before you get on board, you can secure yourself with the included flat lightweight leash, paddle safely and comfortably knowing your board is a life raft. The Deluxe Double Chamber model even has a water bottle with a patented magnetic self-attaching attachment innovation. Thinking about double chambers, Starboard invented and introduced this stiffening and security concept back in 2014.

TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION

Heat Welded Rail

BONDED FOR LIFE

• Welding technology turns 2 pieces of material into a single solid unit, resulting in an extra-strong mechanical bond.

• A mechanical bond is stronger, lasts longer and is better for the environment.

• Welding creates a complete airtight seam without the risk of glue weakening over time.

NEW Fusion Woven Dropstitch 

EXTRA STIFF, STRONG & LIGHT. FEEL IT!

 

Woven fabrics reduce stretch, hold more tension and create a stiffer board.

• The woven fabrics use less material than conventional dropstitch, creating a lighter board.

Fusion lamination of top and bottom layers is done in a glueless process,  increasing stiffness and creating a solid board, while reducing weight.

What does it mean for you? A stiffer and lighter, durable board, with a reflex sensation you can feel.

• Available on Deluxe Double Chamber and Deluxe Single Chamber constructions.

NEW Linear Dropstitch

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.

• Available on Zen construction

BOARD CONSTRUCTIONS

Deluxe Double Chamber

SAFER, STIFFER, LIGHTER

• The Deluxe Double Chamber brings the inflatable boards one step closer to a hard board feeling. The Double Chamber stiffens the board significantly, thanks to the double side walls around the second chamber. This chamber also offers extra safety flotation for any emergencies.

• The fusion woven dropstitch makes the Deluxe Double Chamber extra strong and stiff.

Deluxe Single Chamber

A SOLID WINNER IN WELDING TECHNOLOGY

The new woven dropstitch makes the Deluxe a solid winner at a lightweight. The galvanized 2000 D rails together with the breakthrough welded rail technology set the Deluxe further apart from the rest.

BOARD REVIEWS

 From Texas, USA

This is the BEST board I’ve ever been on

Hello All, I purchased the 12’6″ Touring Board Deluxe Double Chamber a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to share my opinion on this board.

First of all, it is the MOST rigid inflatable I’ve ever been on (by far!). The stability of the board is just as good as any regular hardboard I’ve been on. The tracking is amazing… I can get 10 strokes on each side easily. The board slices through the water. No bobbing up and down in chop.

I know the Double Chamber is mainly for safety, but I actually think it adds to the rigidity of the board itself since that’s where you stand. Also, the Pump is the BEST. I actually use the Starboard pump for everything now. Cuts the time in half.

This is the BEST board I have ever been on.

I just wanted to say thank you for making a superior product. So many people have asked me about my board since I got it. So long for now… I’m out for another afternoon adventure. Thanks again!!!
