The 2018 Starboard 12’6″ x 27″ All Star racing inflatable paddle board is the merged version of the 2017 12’6″ x 26″ and 28″ Racers. It has a slightly wider nose for extra pop in choppy water and a wider tail for greater control and stability when buoy turning. Twin stringers on the deck combined with the Airline Deluxe Construction creates a 12’6″ racing inflatable SUP with the fastest and smoothest glide ever.

This unique line of inflatable paddle boards shares the outline of the multi championship winning All Star and combines it with the practicality of an inflatable SUP. What truly makes this board special though, is the all new award winning patented Airline stiffening system resulting in an extremely rigid inflatable paddle board. The 2018 Starboard inflatable All Stars have set a new standard by which all other performance inflatable SUP’s will become measured.

Inflatable board convenience, composite board performance.

Includes FREE lightweight Starboard leash, and 2 YEAR warranty.

2018 Starboard 12’6″ x 27″ All Star Airline Deluxe.

Airline Technology: Starboard’s most significant breakthrough in tuning rocker lines and deflection. This efficient, lightweight technology could change the future of inflatable performance boards.

The free-flowing aramid cable locks the board in shape when inflated, creating a solid trustworthy hull sensation.

The patented Airline Technology utilizes a pre-set free-floating cable. It is attached to the nose, goes under the bottom and ends at the fin box. The preset cable is slightly shorter than the board so when the board inflates, the cable comes under tension and stiffens the board significantly. We measured 1.8 cm less hull deflection in testing and 2016 World Champion Connor Baxter swears by it. For more on setting up and tuning your Airline board click here.

Fusion Technology: Top and bottom layers are fused in a single, glueless process. Lighter, stronger.

Stiffest Technology: The double chamber increases the hull’s stiffness immensely, 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.

The innovative Rail Edge helps the water release off the board’s tail for optimal glide and speed. The Rail Edge is still easily folded and rolled when deflating.

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.
