AN EXPLORER’S FAVOURITE TRANSPORTATION- The overall balanced glide experience and premium features are what have made Starboard’s Touring paddle boards become the world’s highest-rated by magazines and customers’ favourite worldwide.
Suited for riders up to 110kg, the 12’6″ combines a balance of speed, stability and maneuverability. Narrow width makes it the fastest to paddle and easiest to track in a straight line. The parallel outline recovers the stability lost from the standing area and delivers a more balanced glide.

The Double Chamber makes this board ULTRA STIFF. The innovative chamber doubles the sidewalls and acts like rollable I-BEAMS. Starting just behind the standing area and continuing towards the front, the chamber is placed in the most critical area for flex and reduces deflection by 1.8 cm. The feeling of paddling with the stiff Double I-BEAM stinger is getting very similar to a hard board propelling inflatable technology one step closer to a “hard board” feel.
THE OUTLINE SHAPE DESCRIPTION
- The narrow mid section of the outline & wide tail make for fast glide as well as for stable and easy turning.
- Easy to hold the paddle close & vertical, which improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling.
2IN1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP
& PADDLE HOLDER
- Velcro loops to attach your paddle.
- Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and frees up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.
- When not in use, the strap sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.
BUNGEE TIE DOWN
- A bungee tie down in front of the board, for storing gear and supplies.
- The bungee is attached with 4 D-rings which can be used to clip on your bags and gear.
- On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS
- STAR Mount supplied with every board to attach further accessories.
EXTRA CARRY HANDLEON THE NOSE OF THE BOARD
