Flat water races on inflatable boards are about to be revamped. Similar to its composite counterpart, the Sprint Airline board is meant to be fastest board in the flat water conditions. With a narrow nose to cut through the water surface, the center of balance sits behind the middle of the board providing great acceleration.
Woven Fusion dropstitch technology maintains the board at its lightweight. The cutting edge standing tray is another innovation securing stability, control and comfort, while the edge release technology reduces drag by creating a laminar flow behind the board.

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.
PATENTED AIRLINE TECHNOLOGY
• The free-flowing aramid cable locks the board in shape when inflated, creating a solid trustworthy hull sensation.
• The patented Airline Technology utilises a pre-set free-floating cable. It is attached to the nose, goes under the bottom and ends at the fin box. The preset cable is slightly shorter than the board so, when the board inflates, the cable comes under tension and stiffens the board significantly. We measured 1.8 cm less hull deflection in testing and World Champion Connor Baxter swears by it.
Board weight tolerance: +/- 5%
