THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE!
Paddleboards are relatively long so swing weight is simply crucial. Every 100 grams saved can be felt when calving on a wave.
Starboards new Brushed Carbon wave boards are up to 3kg lighter than their AST Technology which already is the industry benchmark. The incredible weight saving makes the Brushed Carbon Boards feel 1 to 2 feet shorter.
By far the lightest possible technology in the market, these boards are crafted by the most experienced workers ensuring the highest precision in every step in the birth of the board. The boards are monitored by the tightest QC system available and starboard spend their valuable time inspecting them for you to ensure you recieve the same shape that they spent years designing.
A combination of a ultra light, flat weave carbon and medium density extra high quality PVC sandwich foam wrapped around a light density EPS core. The first board construction in the world to utilize an ultra light carbon fibre that is flat-weaved for total mechanical efficiency at half the specific weight of regular carbon weaves. The first real performance technology to be introduced to the world of paddle boarding: Lightest weight, quickest response.
The light white paint job is brushed to further reduce weight while still protecting the board from overheating. High density PVC foam reinforcements are used around inserts. Brushed Carbon Modles feature ultra lightweight Startouch deck Grip.
-All centre fins are Blue Starboard Hexcel
-Side fins are Blue Starboard Hexcel for pro models or Starboard flex fins for the rest.
The original Wood technology pioneered by Starboard in 1994.
Probably the most beautiful yet advanced board construction available. Years of development and experimentation has led Starboard to produce limited numbers of this exclusive board technology.
The lightweight fusion blown EPS has PVC reinforcements imbedded for all insert’s reinforcements. Military grade fibreglass wraps around the core in an Epoxy resin matrix to form an inner sandwich wall under the combination of strong and stiff 510kg/m3 0.6mm Australian Pine and Makori veneer.
Wood’s unique properties are its natural rigidity, superior resistance to compression and higher energy absorption compared to carbon. It is the construction with the highest dynamic shape stability.
ADVANTAGES: Light weight, highest dynamic shape stability, rigid flex, quick response.
TAC boards have Starboard Startouch deck traction.
All centre fins are Smoke Starboard Hexcel for Pro boards and Starboard flex for the rest.
TAC stands for The Arctic Challenge which is professional Snowboarder and legend Terje Hakosen’s annual invitational event. At the TAC a handful of selected athletes from the very top of snowboarding compete in an event which emphasizes sustainability and eco awareness. TAC boards are built with the same ideal and is our greenest technology.
TUFSKIN AST SILVER
Maximum durability and value.
Tufskin AST technology uses layers if 3-dimensional 400g glass mat wetted out with an expanding epoxy resin system that creates volume within the skin as it cures under pressure. This creates a thick, stiff, and durable sandwiched laminate. A half-deck wood layer improves rigidity and deck impact resistance.
Advantages; tough and light construction, more value, most durable offering.
All AST Tufskin Silver models feature the following:
-Silver epoxy painted ding resistant rails
-3/4 DECK PAD with 4mm diamond traction EVA foam in the standing area and 3mm EVA core and aft with light weight Startouch deck traction on the nose.
TUFSKIN AST CANDY
