The past year has caused countless disruptions and challenged every person & every business around the world, including Starboard who have had to endure many production and shipping delays as they navigated their way through the pandemic, slowly returning to a ‘new normal’. “Despite these challenges, we have worked incredibly hard to overcome them and stayed steadfast in their mission to create the best paddle boards in the world, that are better for the environment”, says Svein Rasmussen, CEO of Starboard. Without further ado, here is the 2022 Starboard Stand Up Paddle Collection!
2022 Starboard Claim: 10 times climate positive
For every board sold, Starboard plant a mangrove tree, absorbing one ton of CO2 over 20 years and pick up 1.1 kg of ocean plastic trash through their Plastic Offset Program.
“We’ve planted 1 million mangrove trees and picked up 200,000 kg of plastics. Thanks to all of you for making this possible.” adds Rasmussen.
Ecological FOOTPRINT Information
How much footprints is each product leaving behind? Starboard has calculated all carbon and plastic footprints of their hard paddleboards and share the data with you!
You can now find this information on every Starboard hard board in the shop and on product page on the website. Here is an example of how they look like on the board!

STARBOARD 2022 GEAR
THE NEW STARBOARD LIMA PADDLE
The Lima paddle is really really light! Try it to believe it.
The new Lima CNC core twin ribs shape reduces 15% of the core volume. The ribs create blade strength and the ability to cut through the water faster.
STARBOARD 2022 INFLATABLE BOARDS
WELDED RAIL TECHNOLOGY
– NO LEAKAGE
Starboard has pioneered the most advanced and reliable rail welding technology by mechanically bonding the rail layers. Welded Rail Technology seals the deck and bottom of the board at the rail, which is critical for leaking.
Starboard has had a 0.38% warranty rate on all inflatable boards and a 0.1% warranty rate on Zen boards concerning leaking issues since the Welded Rail Technology was first introduced.
NEW – STARBOARD iCON INFLATABLE BOARD
The concave shape on the deck allows you to stand closer to the water for more control, and the catamaran-style hull creates further stability. The thick rails around the 4.75” standing area provide you with secondary stability in choppy conditions and give you a ridge to place your feet against if necessary. This new technology has been applied on your all-time favorite shapes: iGO and Touring. This is the first inflatabe board with concaves.
NEW – THE WALL INFLATABLE BOARD
Starboard’s The Wall board follows the concept of Starboard’s composite raceboards, where the standing area is recessed and therefore closer to the water surface. The results is an ultra stiff, stable and comfortable board.
By standing closer to the water level, the board feels more stable, especially in windy conditions. This allows you to save energy and be comfortable on a more narrow / faster board.
2022 STARBOARD RIGID BOARDS
THE NEW STARBOARD TOURING
The new Starboard Touring paddle board is suited for all skill levels that want the fastest glide to paddle distances quickly with comfortable stability and the option to carry gear along the journey. The nose shape is inspired by the Sprint, Starboard’s most winning SUP board giving you the smoothest and most efficient glide with minimal splash.
Enjoy Starboard’s trademark shoulder carry straps option, various mount options, the bungee tie-downs and the lower storage area on your next adventure.
A hot tip : the 14’0” x 28” is as fast as Starboard’s largest All Star.
NEW STARBOARD TAKE OFF FOIL BOARD
The Take Off is the Foiler’s board of choice for anything Wing, Foil Surf, Foil downwind and more. A true all-round Foil board that caters for first-time flyers to experienced foilers.
This is a completely new concept through and through with all new bottom shape, release edges, rocker, volume and outline.
This board just won 2 x world champion titles from the GWA Wingfoil World Cup in Morocco.
NEW STARBOARD 2022 WINGBOARD
The new Wingboard range takes design inspiration from our high-performance SUP foil boards and Olympic class Windsurf foil boards – combining the speed and efficiency of foiling with the power of the wind. The aim of the wingboard is to give you maximum performance in a small size while catering to your level, from beginner to expert.
NEW LIMITED SERIES CONSTRUCTION
We wanted the construction to be offered at a very competitive price point, while maintaining solid performance in the surf, without sacrificing the weight or strength.
The construction has been approved after testing in Portugal, Israel and Thailand, combining a wide range of conditions in wave types and climate differences.
“I wanted to create a timeless iconic look, unlike anything in the market, totally unique, yet clean and classic.” Ollie O’Reilly, Starboard R&D manager
