Best Inflatable board of the year awarded by SUPConnect Magazine
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 Bungee straps at the nose are good for storing all sort of dry bags or gear on your next big SUP adventure.
The iGO boards are known for being steady, having good speed and being super easy to turn while stepping back onto the wide tail area. The board’s straight outline helps to paddle straight and you can paddle more strokes on one side before you need to swap over, which also helps comfort and even increases the overall speed. This is the perfect paddle board range option for first-time paddlers, families with pets and anyone who wants less fuss and more enjoyable water time anywhere.
TOURING - AN EXPLORER'S FAVOURITE TRANSPORTATION
The overall balanced glide experience and premium features are what have made Starboard’s Touring paddle boards become the world’s highest-rated by magazines and customers’ favourite worldwide.
The wider nose and squarer tail make the Touring inflatable paddle board more stable, especially for harsh conditions like side chop and moderate wind. Experience the Starboard difference even before entering the water, these lightweight paddleboards feature the trademark Starboard shoulder carry strap which allows you to effortlessly carry it to the water, with both hands-free!
The Rail Edge Technology effectively releases water at the tail and reduces drag by creating a laminar flow behind the board. The Welded Rail Technology mechanically joins the deck and hull, making it a stronger and longer-lasting longer iSUP.
The Tikhine Range
''Painting is like writing a diary for me about all my experiences, journeys discovering exotic places & different cultures around the world. That´s how I found my very own style. A technique with special acrylic pens allows me to bring my impressions of the stunning nature of Hawaii, the animating rough north sea of Sylt or the sand desert of Fuerteventura onto canvas. My paintings often tell a story. The viewer on a closer look always discovers new context in the flowing lines. As an high performance athlete doing SUP races I always want to be the fastest, in the art I find the peace, take my time…
For me it´s the perfect balance. The “Tikhine” is the result of an amazing collaboration with Starboard, being able to combine my two biggest passions presenting my art on the best boards.“
DELUXE SINGLE CHAMBER
STIFFER, LIGHTER, MORE RESPONSIVE
The Fusion Woven dropstitch makes the Deluxe boards extra strong and stiff.
The Heat Welded rails create a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. Making the board stronger and last longer.
Galvanized 2000D rails increase strength and stiffness.
The Double Chamber (optional) 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.
10’8” x 33”:
If you are a first-time paddler or run a school or centre, this board is ideal for you. The board’s length and width create a stable and comfortable platform to paddle on. For riders up to 120kg, the 10’8” provides more than enough tracking and stability.
11’2” x 31+”
: At 31+” this is the narrowest board in the range, so if you are looking for a speedy all-around board, this is your choice. The + also stands for the square tail shape, which provides abundant stability and easy turning. Ideal for lighter riders up to 100kg.
12’6” x 28”
Suited for riders up to 90kg, the narrow width allows you to accelerate faster. It also improves your paddling technique since it is easier to change the paddle from side to side. At 12’6”, you can manoeuvre this board comfortably, making it a great crossover between a Touring and a Race board. You can get the 6” thick board with maximum buoyancy and stiffness; or the 4.75” thick board, which has great stiffness and come in a Tikhine design.
