Thanks to our crew, friends and riders.
Its been a huge year with amazing support from everyone involved, bringing to the market our best ever paddle board collection. It’s like the end of a movie with hundreds of people to congratulate on their efforts, smart ideas and hard work. I would especially like to mention our co-workers who have been a part of the weekly street and river clean ups in Bangkok, becoming real Trash Heroes.
I believe we are making headway not only in creating benchmark products and motivating more people to enjoy paddle boarding, but also in improving the way we run our business more respectfully. Creating a glimpse of how a small family company like Starboard can lift standards in manufacturing and the future of the sport itself is the new fire within our organization. Small things such as more intelligent packaging can reduce about 10,000 kg of plastic pollution, and will have a positive impact beyond our network.
Have a look at the concave that makes the Serenity the most comfortable and quickest composite Yoga board. We are always looking at the entry level of our sport and our new Enduro Tufskin paddle made from recycled materials alters the perception of what an entry level paddle should feel like. After 10 years of paddle boarding, I feel we are still at the very beginning of the sport and bringing to the market innovations that will help design its future.
Svein spent 15 years on the windsurfing tour, brought home numerous World and European titles and also participated in the LA Olympics. In 1993, he founded Starboard, the brand that in windsurfing has brought home more constructors titles than Ferrari and Red Bull combined. In SUP, Starboard naturally evolved as the industry benchmark and sets the standard in innovation and quality by bringing technologies and concepts to the market a few years ahead of the competition.
