BOARDS THAT WIN –
Starboard 2019 SUP Race Range
Leading the SUP racer world ranking every day, 5 years straight,
with all riders using stock production boards.
An exhausting hunt for the highest-performance and more environmentally-friendly materials,
the new designs are tested by our multiple World Champions; Connor Baxter , Michael Booth, The Hasulyo brothers, Fiona Wylde and Sonni Hoenscheid. Only the best shapes survive and go to production to yet again produce more titles in 2019.
Starboard's 2019 race range is faster and again more stable, breaking new boundaries in our sport.
For every board sold, we are picking up plastic equivalent to 200 plastic bags from our coastlines.
We also plant one mangrove for each board sold, absorbing one ton of CO2 over the next 20 years.
Live a deep blue life and paddle for the planet with us.
One board, all conditions. Be an all-star at every race.
