2017 WindSUP Inflatable

Boards for paddling and windSUPing

Our 2017 WindSUPs are available in different sizes and two technologies: Zen (on the left) and Deluxe (on the right).

Converse 9’0 x 30″: The most compact and maneuverable model; the perfect size for kids and light sailors.

Whopper 10′ x 35″: The stable and compact all-rounder; our best-seller.

Junior 10’6 x 25″: The touring model for young enthusiasts.

Blend 11’2 x 32: The all-rounder with extra glide; our second best-seller. Also available as a Waterman Package, complete with sail and paddle.

Touring 11’6 x 30″: The fast all-round model. Also available as a Waterman Package, complete with sail and paddle.

Atlas 12’0 x 33″: The longer, stable all-rounder for bigger sailors.

Touring 12’6 x 31″: The fastest model in our range, with the most glide.

Our 2017 WindSUP Inflatables feature our 3D Rail Edge technology, a proprietary 3D elastomer compound that follows the contours of the board and creates a release edge that allows the boards to fully plane yet fold and roll up.

Our unique innovation for 2017 is our new footstrap insert system that’s just 7mm thick and works with regular footstraps.

They’re easy to fit and have in-built plugs to prevent strap twisting.

Footstrap-Inserts

New mast insert system for 2017: our ‘mushroom’ style insert.

By inserting the mast insert from the bottom, the mast insert is held in place securely: the more the sail tries to pull the insert out, the more it stays in place.

Traditional mast inserts where a hole is cut into the skin becomes weaker the more the sail pulls, eventually ripping out and leaving a hole where air leaks out.

Starboard’s mushroom mast insert is the most secure and safest system in the world.

The WindSUP Inflatable Zen use a light 4.75″ thick drop-stitch with a center fin system that is light and discreet. Suited for more emphasis on paddling.


Delivered with two Drake Shallow 22 fins that delivers as much directional traction as possible in the shortest fin.

The WindSUP Inflatable Deluxe use a 6″ thick ultra-stiff drop-stitch with a fully retractable, rubber-sealed daggerboard case. Recommended for the best windsurfing performance.


Supplied with a Drake Shallow 22 tail fin that delivers as much directional traction as possible and a 57 cm long daggerboard for upwind performance.

The drop-stitch technology connects the top and bottom panels, making the boards really stiff.

Drop-Stitch-Technology

For 2017, the WindSUP Inflatables are up to 20% lighter thanks to the new construction with more fiber, less coating and less glue. This translates into lighter weights and overall improved stiffness.

The rails are reinforced with a 2000 denier sandwiched rail stiffener and a visible HD biax rail band for added strength, stiffness and to prevent the boards from twisting.

All WindSUP Inflatables feature an air valve and a neoprene carry handle that doubles as paddle holder.

They also feature two D-rings: one in the nose that acts as a towing eye for easy transport and one in the tail that acts as a leash plug.

Paddleboarding without a leash is dangerous and not recommended. Leashes save lives, wear one.

All WindSUP Inflatables are supplied with our benchmark V8 Double Action pump. Inflate your board faster and easier with continuous pumping cycles in both down and upward action. Turn the switch and it becomes a single action pump for easy inflation to 18 PSI. Pump hose has been upgraded to be 20% more efficient.

Always inflate between 15 and 18 PSI for maximum stiffness and performance.

The WindSUP Inflatables Zen come with our new and improved Zen bag (shown on left) with roller wheels, side and top-load opening.
