The 2018 Starboard Inflatable 10’5″ Drive Zen is one of the most popular all around boards for flat water cruising. Its overall narrow width allows for not only faster speed on flat water, but improved tracking, as the rider can hold the paddle at a straighter angle closer to the board. Its short length increases the maneuverability to explore narrower waterways, as well as having more control in surf. Tail has been widened 2 inches over 2017 model for even greater stability and carrying capacity, now up 25lbs to 200lbs.

The inflatable 10’5″ Drive is the perfect flatwater-to-wave crossover board for riders wanting lower volume and weight. This shape has been updated with a new tail and nose shape to better work with inflatable SUP rail shapes.

Includes FREE lightweight Starboard leash, and 2 YEAR warranty.

Description

2018 Starboard 10’5″ Drive Zen, maximise the simplicity.

Our lightest board construction, ZEN, is now stiffer and comes with reinforcement plates in the standing area. The fixed fins make the board tool-less and easy to prepare for on water action.

By carefully nesting the reinforcements Starboard offer the lightest board they have ever produced. The large soft thruster-fin set up is a proven and durable tracking solution.

A very light board: Re-engineered Zen technology: more fibres, less coating and optimized glue usage. On the water you will sense the acceleration and fun feel of a light hull.

A great sensation while paddling: The triple-sandwich rail laminate acts as dual stringer stiffeners and also make the rails incredibly strong. We replace double PVC layers with twin 2000 denier deck and bottom stringers, providing the board that rigid, crisp and stiff feel.

Clean Technology: The lamination process uses minimal glue and solvent and packing of the board is free of plastic.

Faster board inflation, with less effort: The benchmark V8 flow valve gets you to 15–18 PSI faster and with less effort.

The exclusive and innovative lightweight Starboard SUP leash will be your best paddling partner in flat water and touring conditions. Leash is NOT suited to waves or white water. Compact in design and at only 70g, it is strong, comfortable and effortless to wear.
