2018 Starboard 11'2" Blend Zen, maximize the simplicity”  

The 2018 Starboard Inflatable 11'2"’ Blend Zen is the ultimate transportable flatwater-to-wave crossover. The 2018 Blend Zen is now 5.5″ thick, up from 4.75″ of last year. This increases overall stiffness and improves performance and carrying capacity. The 2018 Blend has a widened tail for increased stability, a straight outline for a smooth and efficient glide and a pulled in nose that pierces through the water. The 32″ width offers a stable and forgiving ride, while maintaining a fast top speed. This new shape combined with the new stiffer technology has given a significant improvement for this best selling model.

Our lightest board construction, ZEN, is now stiffer and comes with reinforcement plates in the standing area.
By carefully nesting the reinforcements, Starboard offer the lightest board they have ever produced. A great sensation while paddling.

A very light board:
Re-engineered Zen technology: more fibres, less coating and optimized glue usage. On the water you will sense the acceleration and fun feel of a light hull.

A great sensation while paddling:
The triple-sandwich rail laminate acts as dual stringer stiffeners and also make the rails incredibly strong. We replace double PVC layers with twin 2000 denier deck and bottom stringers, providing the board that rigid, crisp and stiff feel.

Clean Technology: The lamination process uses minimal glue and solvent and packing of the board is free of plastic.

Faster board inflation, with less effort: The benchmark V8 flow valve gets you to 15–18 PSI faster and with less effort.

The exclusive and innovative lightweight Starboard SUP leash will be your best paddling partner in flat water and touring conditions.
Leash is NOT suited to waves or white water. Compact in design and at only 70g, it is strong, comfortable and effortless to wear.

Features:

  •  5.5″ (140mm) dropstitch for a good balance between volume and stiffness.
