Technologies used in Starboard’s SUP Boards

CARBON SANDWICH

• LIGHTEST WEIGHT
• EXTRA DURABILITY
• FLEX CONTROL

Features include:

• Super light-weight biaxial Carbon is laminated over the entire hull for the lightest weight, best strength ratio and most efficient flex.
• The mid-section of the board has stiffer UD Carbon side stringers to maintain the rocker in that critical area, thus optimizing glide.
• Thin high density PVC is used on the entire board minimizing resin uptake and maximizing strength.
• 0.6mm thick wood reinforcements are localized right below the standing platform to further enhance the longevity of the extra high density PVC sheet on the tray.
• This is the lightest and strongest race board construction we have ever offered.

CARBON

• LIGHT WEIGHT
• FLEX CONTROL
• FRAGILE

Features include:

Full wrap of high grade Biaxial 200g Carbon is laminated over the entire hull to be lightweight, strong and have controlled flex.
• The mid section of the board has stiffer UD Carbon side stringers to maintain the rocker in that critical area, thus optimizing glide.
• High density PVC foam is used in the standing area for increased strength and reinforced impact resistance.
• Full Carbon technology that delivers lightweight and flex control.

HYBRID CARBON

• GREAT STRENGTH
• VALUE OFFERING

Features include:

• The full wrap of 140g S Glass outside military grade plain weave gives great impact resistance for its weight and also provides a good Flex Pattern.
• The UD Carbon rail bands enhance this construction by making it longitudinally stronger and providing faster recoil.
• The standing area is reinforced with 2 wide strips of 0.6mm thick Australian Pine to prevent heel marks over time.
• The Hybrid Carbon technology combines performance and great value.

BLUE CARBON

• LIGHTEST WEIGHT
• QUICKEST RESPONSE
• STRONGEST BUILD

• A 15kg/m3 precision molded fused cell core replicates the exact shape, offers high strength at the lightest weight.
• A full deck, bottom and rail wrap of high density PVC foam significantly increases the impact resistance and overall hull strength at the lightest weight.
Ultra-light biaxial and uni-directional high grade Carbon fibers with optimized angles deliver flex and reflex for incredible response.
• Impregnated paint pigment means no paint is sprayed reducing the overall weight, paint chips and scratches.
• The sensational lightweight increases carving ability and acceleration.
• S Glass tensile strength (load needed to break material) is generally 60% better than carbon and over twice a strong as conventional glass.

* Full Plant based Bio resin infusion maintains superior performance with a lower impact on the environment.
* We use inverted EVA deck pads to avoid waste, thus every second board will have a reverse color combination from what is featured.

THE DELUXE EXPERIENCE

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

Stiffest Technology
The rails are reinforced by a 3k Carbon laminated apex band.

THE ZEN EXPERIENCE

A very light board.
Re-engineered Zen technology: more fibres, less coating and minimized glue usage. On the water you will sense the acceleration and fun feel of a light hull, actually up to 2 kg
ligher than our 016 editions.

A great sensation while paddling.
The triple-sandwich rail laminate acts as dual stringer stiffeners
and also make the rails incredibly strong. We replace double PVC layers with 2000 denier deck and bottom stringers, providing the board that rigid, crisp and stiff feel.

Clean Technology
The lamination process uses minimal glue and solvent and packing of the board is free of plastic.
