2018 Starboard 12’6″ Touring Deluxe WindSUP, paddle boarding and windsuping in one.
Fusion Technology: Top and bottom layers are fused in a single, glueless process. Lighter, stronger.
Stiffest Technology: The fused layers increase the hull’s stiffness, the UD dropstitch and 3k Carbon fiber compression rail band adds further rigidity.
Cleanest Technology: The deck and bottom lamination process is free of glue and solvent using stricter rules in plasticizer. Packaging 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.
Starboard WindSUP Inflatables are compact, light and strong. You can go paddle boarding, learn windsurfing and get planing with foot straps. They are great to teach kids to windsurf and they roll up into a bag when you’re done.
The 2018 Starboard WindSUP Inflatables feature their 3D Rail Edge technology, a proprietary 3D elastomer compound that follows the contours of the board and creates a release edge that allows the boards to fully plane yet fold and roll up. Thanks to this 3D Rail Edge, you can accelerate and enjoy the most exciting planing sensation possible on an inflatable board.
The Starboard WindSUP Inflatable Deluxe boards use a 6″ thick ultra-stiff drop-stitch with a fully retractable, rubber-sealed daggerboard case. Recommended for the best windsurfing performance. Supplied with a Drake Shallow 22 tail fin that delivers as much directional traction as possible and a 57 cm long daggerboard for upwind performance.
The foot strap inserts with placement options will foster advanced windsurfing learning & progression. Four easy to install foot straps are included.
The “mushroom mast box” is strong and secure along with increased deck plate for better load distribution on deck of the board. We insert it from underneath the board to make it extra safe and strong. The more the sail tries to pull the insert out, the more it stays in place. A new deck plate distributes the top load over a large area for added stiffness.
