The 2019 Starboard Inflatable 14′ Touring Zen has a fast and stable outline with the excellent glide. These boards have cruised lakes, rivers, bays and oceans all around the world. A highly efficient shape for cruising and exploring with good glide to cover distance for riders up to 265 lbs. Maximizing glide and stability, the inflatable 14′ Touring Zen is designed to carry supplies and accessories for all adventures.

Updated on the 2019 14′ x 30″ Touring Zen is the outline shape with a narrower mid section and wider tail which makes for even faster glide, even more stability and more manoeuvrability.

Featuring Starboard’s new for 2019, Welded Seam Technology, the 14’0″ Touring is one of Starboard’s most popular touring boards.

A fast stable outline with the longest glide. Equipped with two large bungee tie-down areas and two FCS inserts.

Description

2019 Starboard 14’0″ x 30″ Touring Zen

Starboard injected 25 years of board building innovation into their 2019 inflatable board program. Their main focus was to build their boards stiffer, lighter, more stable, safer and way more durable. One feature, one of many unique to Starboard, is their Welding Technology.

Welding Technology: Heated and bonded for life. Glue is never forever. Mechanical bond = Strength and Durability. Starboard’s new welding technique turns two into one – using heat to bond two separate pieces of PVC into a single solid unit. Heat-welded PVC creates a mechanical bond that’s stronger, lasts longer – and is better for the environment.

Since the beginning inflatable boards have been glued together at the seam, so the boards only last as long as the glue. Over the last few years Starboard have worked with welding machine manufacturers to develop better machinery for seam welding. Then they helped train their selected OEM assembler to utilize this unique technology in Starboard’s exclusive production lines, resulting in a long lasting mechanical bond.


What’s new for 2019?

  • Welding Technology. Mechanical bond = strength and durability
  • Narrower width is faster to paddle and easier to track in a straight line. The new parallel outline recovers stability lost from the standing area and delivers a more balanced glide.
  • Wider tail outline makes it much easier to turn
  • Shoulder carry strap

Zen, a solid winner in welded technology

2000D galvanized compression stringer from nose to tail on the deck and bottom, for the controlling shape and giving the board greater stiffness.

Stiff and hard standing area plates on the standing area provide more rigid feel under your feet and more responsiveness when paddling. This stiff and hard standing area plate makes Zen a solid winner at a lightweight.

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.

Shoulder carry strap: Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder. Wide extra padded shoulder strap for extra comfort. Frees up your other arm to multi-task, hold your coffee, a paddle, or phone. When not in use, the elastic bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.

FCS Insert: 2 FCS inserts to attach accessories from GoPro, a phone holder, compass or GPS, it is your perfect exploring companion. STAR Mount supplied with every board to attach accessories. One mount on the nose, one on the deck.

Paddle holder: Holds your paddle at the tail of the board for when you want to play, relax or perform yoga and fitness exercises without your paddle interfering or floating away. Can be used to carry the board as an extra handle. Removable velcro strap makes it quick and convenient to store your paddle.

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. Soft cushioning means it will compress and flatten when stood on. Compact in design and at only 70g, it is strong, comfortable and effortless to wear. The leash cuff is made from Yulex, a natural rubber with 80% less carbon footprint than normal neoprene. Leash is NOT suited to waves or white water.

Features:

  • Welding Technology. Mechanical bond = strength and durability
  • 6″ (150mm) dropstitch for a good balance between volume and stiffness
  • Twin 2000 Denier center stringer for added stiffness and rigidity
  • 2000 Denier sandwiched rail stiffening strip
  • Reinforcement plates in the standing areas
