With the narrow width which increases the glide and tracking Starboard 11’2” X 32” Igo Tikhine SUP was made for lighter riders up to 100kg. Wide tail is easier to turn and the straight outline improves tracking. The iGO boards are known to be steady, having good speed and being super easy to turn while stepping back onto the wide tail area. The board’s straight outline helps to paddle straight and you can paddle more strokes on one side before you need to swop over, which also helps comfort and even increases the overall speed. The iGO – the most popular inflatable paddle board range from Starboard, just jump on board and start paddling.
Tikhine boards have built in Deluxe Single Chamber construction. There are 3 special design options available: Tikhine Sun, Tikhine Wave and Tikhine Ocean. They were designed by world’s SUP champion and artist, Sonni Honscheid.
Glue is never forever. Starboard’s new inflatable welding technology uses a special heat welding technique to mechanically bond two separate pieces of PVC into a single solid unit. Heat-welded PVC creates an extra-strong mechanical bond which is stronger, lasts longer and is better for the environment. Welding creates a complete airtight seam without the risk of glue weakening over time.
FUSION WOVEN DROPSTITCH TECHNOLOGY
Woven fabrics reduce stretch, hold more tension and create a stiffer board. The woven fabrics use less material than conventional dropstitch, creating a lighter board. Fusion lamination of top and bottom layers is done in a glueless process, increasing stiffness and creating a solid board, while reducing weight. What does it mean for you? A stiffer and lighter, durable board, with a reflex sensation you can feel.
