Starboard 11’6″ Touring Zen Double Chamber ISUP 16298 (Late July)

Starboard Touring Inflatable 11'6 x 29 Zen Double Chamber

This is a great board for a lighter person or female wanting a lightweight stiffer touring board.

NEW WIDER NOSE AND SQUARER TAIL

FOR MORE STABILITY ESPECIALLY IN HARSH CONDITIONS

By carefully increasing the width of the nose of the board and making its tail squared, the stability of the Touring range has increased significantly, without compromising the overall width of the board. The result, a range of Touring board with great glide and tracking, as well as more stability when paddling and turning.

THE OUTLINE SHAPE

  • The narrow mid section of the outline & wide tail make for fast glide as well as for stable and easy turning.
  • Easy to hold the paddle close & vertical, which improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling.
NEWTOURING S
  • New Touring S outline introduces a new sporty design, meant for fast cruising and for smaller and lighter paddlers.

HEAT WELDED RAILS

  • Every Starboard inflatable paddle board features welded rails.
  • The Heat Welded rails create a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. Making the board stronger and last longer.

    HEATED AND BONDED FOR LIFE

    Glue is never forever. Starboard's new inflatable welding technology uses a special heat welding technique to mechanically bond two separate pieces of PVC into a single solid unit. Heat-welded PVC creates a mechanical bond that's stronger, lasts longer and is better for the environment.

ZEN CONSTRUCTION:
BEST VALUE, WELDED, AND LIGHTEST

  • With only the best core essentials. Built with single layer Linear dropstitch making it even lighter and stiffer than before. This Linear knitted dropstitch was developed by Starboard with its supplier for Starboard use ONLY.
  • The Heat Welded rails create a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. Making the board stronger and last longer.
  • Galvanized 2000D rails increase strength and stiffness.
  • The Double Chamber brings the inflatable boards one step closer to a hard board feeling. The Double Chamber stiffens the board significantly, thanks to the double-sided walls around the second chamber. This chamber also offers extra safety flotation for any emergencies.
    SAFETY FIRST

    The chamber offers up to 43 litres of safety flotation, with 21 litres even in the smallest boards that require only 10 PSI. Starboard pioneered Double Chamber technology in the 2013 Ocean Rescue board. Future coast guard regulations will possibly request this safety arrangement for inflatable board use in open waters.

    ULTRA STIFF

    The innovative chamber doubles the sidewalls and acts like rollable I-BEAMS. Starting just behind the standing area and continuing towards the front, the chamber is placed in the most critical area for flex and reduces deflection by 1.8 cm. The feeling of paddling with the stiff Double I-BEAM stinger is getting very similar to a hard board propelling inflatable technology one step closer to a hard board feel.

    RAIL EDGE TECHNOLOGY

    Creates a sharp edge for the water to release smoothly for optimal glide and speed.

    BUNGEE TIE DOWN
    • A bungee tie down in front of the board, for storing gear and supplies.
    • The bungee is attached with 4 D-rings which can be used to clip on your bags and gear.
    FREE LIGHTWEIGHT LEASH
    • At only 70g, the leash is incredibly light.
    • Soft cushioning means it will flatten when stood on.
    • Easy to attach to the leash ring without needing any excess rope loop.
