Tribord Drops Collection 2022 | Supconnect.com

The past year has caused countless disruptions and challenged every person and every business in the world. The Starboard team have worked incredibly hard to overcome these challenges, working on their mission to create the best paddleboards in the world, better for the environment. So without further ado, let us introduce you to some highlights of the new 2022 Starboard SUP range!

For each board sold, Starboard plants a mangrove tree that absorbs a ton of CO2 in 20 years. In addition, their team recovers 1.1 kg of ocean plastic waste thanks to its plastic compensation program. To date, they have planted 1 million mangroves and collected 200,000 kg of plastic! At this point, Starboard is being transparent about its climate footprint by adding a climate footprint and plastic content statement on every hardboard in stores and on their online product pages.

In addition, since 2018, Starboard has been a B certified company, which means that it meets extremely strict standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

Inflatables

For 2022, Starboard presents two new very interesting inflatables: the iCON and Wall models. These inflatables will continue to use Starboard’s welded rail technology. This technology mechanically bonds the layers of rail to prevent leakage by sealing the deck and bottom of the board to the rail, which is essential for leaks.

ICON

The iCON inflatable by Starboard is the first inflatable stand up paddle with concave on the market. The concave shape on the deck lets you stand closer to the water for more control, and the catamaran-style hull creates additional stability. Thick rails around the 4.75 “standing area give you secondary stability in rough conditions and give you a ridge to place your feet against if needed. This new technology has been applied to your all-time favorite shapes: iGO and Touring.

The wall

The new inflatable wall follows the concept of Starboard’s composite racing boards, where the standing area is recessed and therefore closer to the water surface. 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 narrower / faster board.

Hard boards

Starboard will present some new rigid board models for 2022, a new touring board, a foil board, a wing board and even a limited edition board. See the highlights of each below:

Tour

The all new Touring paddle board is suitable for all skill levels who want the fastest glide for quick paddling with comfortable stability and the ability to carry gear throughout the trip. The nose shape is inspired by the Sprint, Starboard’s most winning SUP board, giving you the smoothest, most efficient glide with minimal splashing. The board includes the option of Starboard branded carry straps, various mounting options, bungee ties and the bottom storage area on your next adventure. Word on the street is that the 14’0 “x 28” is about as fast as their larger All Star (racing model) and a favorite among their testers.

Lift-off

The Take Off is the foiler’s board of choice for all things Wing, Foil Surfing, Foil downwind and more. A true all-round foil board for beginners and experienced foilers alike. This is a completely new concept with a whole new bottom shape, release edges, rocker, volume and outline. This board has just won 2x world championship titles of the GWA Wingfoil World Cup in Morocco.

Wingboard

The new Wingboard range is inspired by the design of Starboard’s high performance SUP foil boards and Olympic-class Windsurf foil boards – combining the speed and efficiency of the foil with the power of the wind. The objective of the wingboard is to offer you maximum performance in a small size while adapting to your level, from beginner to expert.

Limited series construction

The limited edition build is a new build offered on their surf SUPs. The construction should be offered at a very competitive price, while maintaining strong performance in the surf, without sacrificing weight or strength. The construction was approved after tests in Portugal, Israel and Thailand, combining a wide range of conditions, wave types and climatic differences.

“I wanted to create a timeless iconic look, unlike anything on the market, totally unique, yet clean and classic.” Ollie O’Reilly, R&D manager at Starboard.
