Let's embark on a thrilling exploration of beautiful waters, but first, we need to find the perfect Touring board.
Starboard Touring ZEN is designed for both short and long distance paddles, offering excellent performance in flat or slightly choppy conditions and everything in between. Its voluminous but elongated nose helps you handle choppy waters with ease, carry essential gear, and ensures superior stability. Additionally, the squared tail creates a stable platform for executing step-back turns.
To enhance tracking and glide, the boards boast a straight outline and a relatively narrow midsection, allowing you to keep the paddle closer and achieve greater stroke efficiency.
Furthermore, all Touring models come equipped with edge release technology around the tail, reducing drag and ensuring a smooth laminar flow behind the board. Longer boards excel in providing superior glide, while slightly shorter ones offer easier turning capabilities.
Now, let's explore the different Starboard Touring board options available:
