*While this video features the 2015 Astro inflatable paddle boards (something to look forward to!), much of it is relevant to the 2014 boards.

Back in the day, I learnt on the Whopper, albeit an AST version (hard board), and I have to say it was one of the best boards I’ve ridden, still to this day. It was wide for stability, yet short for manoeuvrability and easy handling. These defining characteristics carry over into the inflatable version and in particular the 6″ thick Deluxe version.

The Blend is a great all round board. Starboard put it the best in their description: “The ultimate transportable flatwater-to-wave crossover. Extremely user friendly, the Astro Blend loves to be ridden or taken on a paddle cruise.”

And finally the Touring. This has got to be one of the world’s best touring, travelling and cruising boards. Starboard describe it as: “… the most popular board in their range. It provides great glide and stability. It’s fast enough to win regional races. The generous volume allows paddling with extra luggage, children or furry friends aboard…”

So, the 3 best models of the 2014 Starboard Astro line up, on sale at 20% off. Follow the links below for more details and your ticket to an awesome ride.

Starboard Astro Deluxe inflatable paddle boards come with great stiffness and durability, an extra tall high aspect pump for easy inflation to 18PSI, and very comfortable carry bag. Having a 3/4 or full size EVA deck grip, proper fin boxes and fins set the experience above most others.

The Starboard Astro SUPs are built using super strong drop-stitch material with abrasion and UV resistant 1000 Denier polyester reinforced PVC rail bands. Drop-stitch is two layers of coated material connected by hundreds and thousands of small and thin but extremely strong internal threads which allows the board to hold it’s shape when inflated to high pressure (18PSI).

Astro Deluxe Construction: quality paddle board construction, using the most innovative techniques and materials that offer quite the sensation of a rigid board. Six-inch linear drop-stitch covered with high-strength PVC fabric and high-tensile center stringer affords extreme stiffness and buoyancy.
