“Mind-blowing performance for whitewater paddling” 

Starboard has joined forces with whitewater pioneer Dan Gavere to create the new river running models: 8’6” , 9'6" and 11’0”. The new range makes it even easier to have fun on the river: Reinforced carry handles on all corners for easy access back onto the board. Full EVA deck pad grip to limit loosing balance and falling off. D-Ring on hull side of nose for portability. Bungee tie-down for storing gear. Deluxe 2 plus 1 rail torsion band and biaxial stringer reinforces the rails, combining to make a stiff, twist free ride. Forward mounted half-moon whitewater quad fins are optimized for tracking and turning, all with minimal drag. The US center fin box with PH River fin improves straight line tracking and widens the usage as as an all round cruising option. “The different sizes allow riders of any shape or size to experience how fun and easy whitewater sup can be” Blue Chip recommends the 9'6" model for most UK conditions.

11' x 34" Dedicated river racing performance

11’0” length is designed for river racing with narrow nose outline for a faster glide. Best option for heavier riders up to 115kg wanting extra comfort from the added volume. 34” width gives stability while maintaining efficiency and maneuverability to react and respond to the river.

9'6" x 36" Mind-blowing performance for whitewater paddling (recommended for UK conditions)

Stable and progressive, a board that takes a first timer from navigating basic class 1 and 2 rapids to the ultimate in whitewater and river running performance. A slightly tucked in outline similar to the Atlas combined with the 9’6” length holds good ground speed, while being smaller enough to turn quickly. 36” is the widest in the range for riders up to 110kg with the highest stability to cope with choppy water and big drops.

8' 6" x 33" Reactive and compact riding style

Short, nimble and reactive, the X-Stream is designed for lighter riders up to 90kg wanting added sensitivity on the river. The shorter length offers quicker turning and faster response when reacting to challenging conditions. 33” width is stable but fits with the proportion of the board to offer
free-style river performance.

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 heavy duty Blue Chip non snagging coil leash plus the exclusive Blue Chip White Water Quick Release waist belt will be your best paddling partner in white water conditions.
