The overall balanced glide experience and premium features are what have made Starboard’s Touring paddle boards become the world’s highest-rated by magazines and customers’ favourite worldwide.
The wider nose and squarer tail make the Touring inflatable paddle board more stable, especially for harsh conditions like side chop and moderate wind. Experience the Starboard difference even before entering the water, these lightweight paddleboards feature the trademark Starboard shoulder carry strap which allows you to effortlessly carry it to the water, with both hands-free!
The Rail Edge Technology effectively releases water at the tail and reduces drag by creating a laminar flow behind the board. The Welded Rail Technology mechanically joins the deck and hull, making it a stronger and longer-lasting longer iSUP.
WELDED RAIL TECHNOLOGY
Every Starboard inflatable paddle board features welded rails.
The Welded Rail Technology creates a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. This makes Starboard inflatable paddle boards stronger and longer lasting.
THE OUTLINE SHAPE
The boards have straight outline and relative narrow midsection, so you can keep the paddle closet to the board. This makes you feel more comfortable and stable while you also track better and glide faster.
VOLUMINOUS NOSE AND SQUARER TAIL
It helps you pop through chop, carry some gear and increase the boards stability, while the squared tail creates a platform to make fun step back turns.
- If you want a faster sensation, the new Touring S has a slenderer design at 28” width, this is great if you are light or have a good balance.
- If you want a more stable and solid feel, carry more gear or are a heavier rider, the new Touring L is your choice
NEW MULTIPLE CARRY HANDLES

2IN1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP & PADDLE HOLDER

- When not in use, the strap sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.
