A look at the 2021 Starboard inflatable paddle board range

Arriving in just a few days are our first batch of 2021 inflatable SUPs from Starboard. An evolution of the popular 2020 range, the 2021 boards feature new graphics and a few outline tweaks. Let’s have a look at the range and what’s changed.

2021 Starboard iGO Inflatable All Round Paddle Boards

The Starboard 2021 iGO inflatable paddle boards are known for being steady, having good speed and being super easy to turn while stepping back onto the wide tail area.

The all round 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.

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 sorts of dry bags or gear on your next big SUP adventure.

Looking much more modern for 2021 the boards feature new graphics, as does the Re-Cover Bag. Outline and shape tweaks for each model improve stability and versatility of each board.

2021 Starboard Touring Inflatable Paddle Boards

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 for 2021 make the Touring board more stable, especially for harsh conditions like side chop and moderate wind.

The Edge release technology reduces drag by creating a laminar flow behind the board while the Welding technology makes the board stronger and last longer.

New Touring S models for 2021 provide a faster, sleeker touring board for light weight paddlers, or those wanting to cover more ground, quicker. Standard 30″ models maintain their overall width but see increases in nose and tail width for better stability and load carrying. Board and bag graphic updates.

2021 Starboard All Star Airline Racing Inflatable Paddle Boards

The 2021 All Star Inflatable paddle boards, featuring Starboard’s patented Airline technology, are faster than most hard boards. For 2021 they have enhanced the shape and it now shares the outline of their world championship winning All Star hard board design.

The tensioned aramid cable running over the board’s underside is covered by a new carbon stringer that increases both the stiffness and reflex sensation of the board. Woven Fusion drop stitch technology maintains the board at its lightweight. The cutting edge standing tray is another innovation securing stability, control and comfort, while the edge release technology reduces drag by creating a laminar flow behind the board.

Updated composite board inspired outlines throughout. A new carbon stringer on the underside for extra stiffness and reflex sensation. Revised board look with the darker carbon stringer and new bag graphics.

2021 Starboard Zen Inflatable Paddle Boards

Starboard’s 2021 Zen Inflatable SUP construction is the leanest, lightest and most budget friendly construction. Stripped down to the core essentials.

Linear alignment of space yarns, oriented only in warp direction (the direction of the board’s length), maximizing the stiffness and response. Linear drop stich also secures the board’s shape better over time compared to standard knitted drop stitch. Linear drop stich with single layer coating is the lightest offering in Starboard’s collection.

Updated outlines from the Touring and iGO range for the Zen range as well. Zen range now include the Re-Cover bag as well as diamond cut tail section on the deck pad. Updated board graphics to match the wider Starboard range.

2021 Starboard Surf Inflatable Paddle Board

Starboard just pumped up the action with their surf inflatable paddle board, with woven fusion and double chamber construction, maximizing stiffness and hard board feel.

Based on their classic surf composite outlines, the narrow nose does not get caught through turns, the wide standing area gives stability and pulled in tail makes for reactive turning.

This board was on the money last year so the only changes are the board and bag graphics to match the 2021 line up.

2021 Starboard SUP Windsurfing Inflatable Paddle Boards

The 2021 Starboard SUP Windsurfing range is compact, light and strong, you can go paddle boarding, learn windsurfing and even get planning with its foot straps and water-releasing Rail Edge technology. It’s great for teaching your kids to windsurf and best of all, it rolls up into a bag and fits into the trunk of your car.

Shape changes from the Touring and iGO models transfer into the SUP windsurfer versions as well. Board and bag graphics updated to match the 2021 line up.
