Description


Why choose the Touring Zen by Starboard model? The Zen Starboard Range is the brand's entry level, lightweight and excellent value for money!
With only the best essential elements. Single-layer construction combined with linear dropstitch and heat-welded rails, making it even stronger and stiffer than before. Test the Starboard difference, even before you get into the water. These lightweight boards are equipped with a Starboard shoulder strap to allow you to carry your board easily and effortlessly into the water with both hands free! A good compromise between width and length offers this board a fast glide, a good ability to go straight and a lot of ease in manoeuvres. Its new, wider nose and rear end give it more stability, while the volume gain generates more buoyancy. IGO boards are known to be stable, offer good speed and are very easy to turn by leaning on the rear. The tight contours of the board help you row in a straight line without having to change sides too often. This helps to further improve paddling comfort and increase speed and glide. This is a range of boards perfectly adapted to beginners, families with animals and all those who want to have fun and spend time on the water, easily and without constraint Before you start paddling, you can secure yourself to your board with the flat, lightweight leash provided with it. This will keep you paddling safely and allow your board to act as a liferaft if necessary. The bungee system on the nose of the board will allow you to keep all the waterproof equipment you need to carry dry clothes or food with you on your next adventures Starboard has injected 25 years of innovation in board construction into its 2020 inflatable board program. Their main objective was to build boards that were stiffer, lighter, more stable, safer and much more durable. Suitable for riders, women and men, from 45 to 100 kg, the board is designed to guarantee maximum speed and balance
A SUP technical and ultra-light, rigid but accessible to all... and in eco-responsible construction.

The advantages of the Zen range


- Stiffness: Hot-welded rails. This new Starboard welding technique transforms two into one - using heat to mechanically weld two separate pieces of PVC into a very strong single piece. Hot welding of PVC creates a stronger, more durable mechanical bond - with less impact on the environment...
- Lightness: Linear Dropstitch alignment of the threads in space, only in the direction of the warp (in the length direction of the board), for maximum stiffness and high manoeuvrability.
- The linear dropstich allows to keep over time a perfect shape on the board, unlike the standard knitted dropstitch which ends up generating deformations in the long term.
- The linear dropstitch manufacturing with a single coating layer is the lightest manufacturing of our entire range.
- What does that mean for you? An ultra-lightweight board with the best possible stiffness for a single layer construction. You will feel the speed, that's for sure.
- The fin: An ergonomically designed screw, which can easily be adjusted with the fingers, allows the fin to be configured without any tools. This screw is attached to the fin so that it cannot be lost.
- The pad: a large pad with a soft touch and a "crocodile skin" look, it is a delight for comfort and grip
- The equipment: each board in the range is equipped with a D-ring at the front, a bungee system to install and transport gear, an insert - made from recycled fishing nets - on which a camera holder or even a fishing rod holder can be attached (not supplied)

Starboard, an eco-responsible manufacturer


Starboard, a historical windsurfing brand, has become, through innovation, one of the leading creators of SUP boards worldwide. Always at the forefront of research and innovation, Starboard is at least one step ahead!... Not content with their technological lead, Starboard are now focused on sustainable development and ecology
Aware that the materials traditionally used in the SUP industry are not very respectful of our environment, Starboard turns to recycled materials to manufacture its products and replaces its plastic packaging with more durable materials. Even the ink used for their catalogue distributed with each of their boards is now made from soya!
Each model, with its respective technologies but also with the induced transport, has a carbon footprint that Starboard has measured. Once these measures had been taken into account, Starboard became involved in various sustainable actions such as (re)planting mangroves, which are essential to Myanmar's mangroves, or funding organizations focused on waste collection, particularly in the marine environment.
