Speed, stability and adventure – Starboard has expanded their Sprint range to include 2 new, wider models with greater stability and crossover ability for long-distance touring.
The 14’0″ x 27.5″ Sprint Expedition is designed for up to 110 kg riders who want solid stability and speed.
The 14’0″ x 29.5″ Sprint Expedition is designed for riders weighing up to 120 kg and seeking ultra-stability for long-distance adventures.
Both new sizes offer a recessed bag storage area in front of the standing area with bungee tie-downs to carry gear and supplies for ultra-distance races and long exploration paddles.
Paddleboard explorer & adventure athlete, Bruce Kirkby, is the man behind the new Sprint Expedition design:
“At last, a true expedition paddleboard! After three years of testing different designs and prototypes with the Starboard team in Thailand, I couldn’t be prouder of the Expedition Sprint. Combining Starboard’s legendary racing hull with massive dugout cargo capacity, this revolutionary board is fast, stable and so fun to paddle. It can carry weeks of gear and is ready for any wilderness journey. It is the real deal.” Bruce Kirkby
