And the Starboard Name Battle Winner is…
That's it ! It took a few days to sort out the thousands of names put forward by hundreds of entrants but Caren Forbes, Mathieu Rauzier and Svein Rasmussen have made their choice. Bow-Down for some incredible, amazing, inspiring, creative, witty – but also sometimes sketchy, cheesy, dodgy and VERY FUNNY – names.
We personnally enjoyed:
– Jabba the SUP
– The Big ASStro
– The Big Blowoski
and M.B.T.Y as in Mine's Bigger Than Yours (fair enough with an 18'6 x 60)
Anyway, this new HUGE board from Starboard is now called ….
How about Svein Rasmussen, Founder and CEO of Starboard says it himself :
YEP… STARSHIP !
So why do we have 3 winners :
Well, Alan Montgomery was the first to suggest “star-ship” on September 28 … but that dash in the middle… mmm huh hoh.
Alan owns Pumped Up Boardworks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida – He wins a 2015 Starboard T-Shirt.
Then Charlie Herr from Honolulu, Hawaii put forward “Star Ship” – getting closer but not quite right… She's our 2nd runner-up and wins a 2015 Starboard T-Shirt !
And then came Geert-Jan Muskens from the Netherlands with STARSHIP. Solid ! Geert you are the Starboard STARSHIP name finder and you win a 2015 Tiki Tech Paddle.
Could all 3 winners please contact Caren Forbes – email@example.com – for their prize delivery ?
