60 min down south from the HQ you find the Starboard Test Center. This is the spot where we test new concepts of mostly Flatwater, Touring, Race, and Inflatable Boards.
At the center we have everything ready to go – 24 hours per day – 365 days a year.
The location combined with the workshop gives us the possibility to have an efficient shaping process. We could shape a board day one (it takes a bit longer of course). Day two we go to the center for testing and day three we re-shape according to the new findings during the test. Day four we go back to to the test centre for evaluation and further testing.
This continuous until we have a board that is better than the board from the previous year.
