Starboard’s 12’6 x 30″ Zen touring board offers excellent performance for those longer paddle trips, and satisfaction for cruising from the great glide with every stroke. The longer water-line means that the board will keep travelling across the water for longer than a shorter board, so gives more efficient paddling. At 30″ wide the board has plenty of volume, but the parallel rail shape helps you to track well in a straight line, with less need to change paddle sides frequently.
The single fin set up offers great straight-line tracking, and has a tool-less bolt for easy set-up.
Starboard’s Zen construction is made of a PVC skin with knitted dropstitch, double layer, heat-bonded rail band that makes the board stiff and robust. The result is a great-looking board, that’s durable and light, and will get you on the water in any conditions.
Starboard is committed to sustainability and minimising the company and customer’s impact on the environment the world over. Through the use of lower impact, and recycled materials, the carbon footprint of every board, paddle and accessory is reduced.
All Starboard packaging is paper and recyclable – no plastic bags for the bin here. And for every board sold, Starboard plant one mangrove tree at Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar, which will remove up to 1000kg of carbon from the air in its lifetime, compared to the production footprint of around 100kg per board making your board carbon positive.
What SUP North thinks
We’re really impressed with this board package board in terms of performance and value for money. A good quality touring-style isup would usually set you back significantly more. The board has all of the basic features that you need, including bungee tie-down points for taking a change of clothes or provisions for longer trips. Stiffness and glide is great. The Tufskin paddle is so much more than the entry level paddle you’d receive from mid-priced brands, with a carbon hybrid shaft for great weight and moderate flex. Highly recommended!
Volume: 351 litres
Recommended max rider weight: Up to 120kg
