Pack smaller & travel easier: Starboard introduces the revolutionary Roll Technology

Starboard Team has made an innovative update to their most popular inflatable boards, introducing the Zen Roll. This collection of the most popular Zen boards are standing a cut above the rest as they come complete with the brand new Roll Technology which allows paddlers to travel in more comfort and style by revolutionising the way inflatable boards pack away. The Roll design includes a fresh patented fin box which makes rolling your iSUP very much easier! The fin box is essentially spilt into three pieces which although still strong, means it will bend and curve as you pack away your board.


Travelling with your favourite Starboard iSUP has just become much easier and more convenient, with  entire packaging reduced by 30%. At this amazingly compact size of travel SUP you can still find inside a Tiki folding pump, 3 piece paddle, fins, leash and of course the board!


Each board packs around the Tiki pump. Once the pump has had its ingenious foot plate folded up, it becomes the centre of the roll. With the aid of the clever Roll Technology design, the fin box neatly curves around the rest of the board and is held in place with its holding strap, it then packs away into a stylish duffle bag. The carry bag has ergonomic shoulder straps for comfort and stability which make hiking or cycling with your board super easy. The bag also has roller wheels which come in handy for the airport.

This fantastic range of lightweight, travel friendly and storage friendly boards are complete with Starboards Welded Rail Technology, which is a mechanically bonded and glueless means of construction, making all boards safer, and longer lasting. It also boasts better durability and stiffness from the reinforced rails and drop stitch construction. 

The range of Zen Roll boards come in the 10’8″ x 33″ IGO which is the stable, entry level family board that does it all. The 11’2″ x 31+” IGO which is fast yet stable, perfect for lighter riders, beginner to intermediate and their range of adventure touring boards in sizes 11’6″ / 12’6 / 14’0″ which combine speed, stability and manoeuvrability. With such a broad range of sizes in the Zen Roll collection, you can pick your perfect travel companion for a summer adventure!
