The 2017 Starboard Inflatable 9’6″ Stream (now known as the River) is designed with world renowned white water paddler, Dan Gavere, who researched the outline and rocker profile to help make this the best choice for entry level and experienced paddlers. A stable, progressive, and bullet proof board that takes a first timer from navigating basic class 1 and 2 rapids to the ultimate in whitewater and river running performance.

The compact design, 36″ of width and massive amount of volume at 290 liters, makes the 2017 9’6″ Stream great for heavier or big water paddlers by keeping the board planing over the boils and eddy line swirls.

Two YEAR warranty.

What’s new for 2017?

  • Double layer of composite mesh fused in a single structure by heat lamination. Glueless and solvent free process. More fiber reinforcement = stiffer. No glue = lighter
  • 3K carbon rail stringer – for extreme stiffness and strength
  • Compression HD biax pin line – for compression and additional stiffness
  • New leash on white water fins to reduce the chance of losing the fin should it detach from the fin box

Lightest Technology: All the layers are fused in a single, glue-less process.
