ZEN CONSTRUCTION

BEST VALUE, WELDED, AND LIGHTEST

Length: 12’6” / 381 cm

Width: 30” / 76 cm

Thickness: 6" / 15.2

Suited for riders up to 242 lbs., the 12’6″ combines a balance of speed, stability and maneuverability. Narrow width makes it the fastest to paddle and easiest to track in a straight line. The parallel outline recovers the stability lost from the standing area and delivers a more balanced glide.

  • With only the best core essentials. Built with single layer Linear dropstitch making it even lighter and stiffer than before. This Linear knitted dropstitch was developed by Starboard with its supplier for Starboard use ONLY.
  • The Heat Welded rails create a complete airtight, mechanically bonded seam without the risk of glue weakening over time. Making the board stronger and last longer.
  • Galvanized 2000D rails increase strength and stiffness.
  • The Double Chamber (optional) brings the inflatable boards one step closer to a hard board feeling. The Double Chamber stiffens the board significantly, thanks to the double side walls around the second chamber. This chamber also offers extra safety flotation for any emergencies.
