Starboard have refined their board construction for 2017, under the ethos ‘more meat, less fat’. They have massively improved their Zen construction method, including more fibre to produce a stiffer board, whilst reducing the coating and glue meaning that Zen boards are now lighter than ever – up to 2kg lighter than 2016 editions. This ‘less is more’ ethos is extended to their V8 flow valve, which allows you to reach the appropriate pressure faster, and with less effort. As well as this, the Starboard 12’6 Touring Astro Zen also features a 2000 DENIER Sandwiched rail which acts as a stiffener running down the sides of the board providing extra strength and an unparalleled firmness.
Starboard 12’6 Touring inflatable also has several practical features designed to make your life easier – it has a neoprene paddle holder and carry strap on its tail to make lugging your equipment around more manageable. Other additions include an integrated D-ring on the nose for towing and a centre-board carry handle.
Beyond this - and unique to Starboard Touring paddleboards among their inflatable range - are the features that are specifically geared towards touring. Chief among these are two bungee tie-downs at the front and rear of the deck pad, for the storing and easy access of gear and supplies. The Starboard 12’6 Touring Astro Zen also comes with a STAR mount which is compatible with all RAM accessories, allowing you to mount phones, fishing rods, even GoPro action cameras, allowing you to chronicle your epic journey on the water.
And in addition to this, all Starboard Touring boards feature Rail Edge technology, which helps the water release off the board’s tail for optimal glide and speed, which is easily folded when deflating.
And that’s just the board – it is supplied with a stylish Zen bag and double action pump as well, making you all but ready to take your Starboard 12’6 Touring inflatable to the water and get in the ‘Zen’ mindset.

This is a great touring board. It is wide enough that anyone can paddle it, and fast enough that you will really notice the difference between this and the allround boards. The Glide is exceptional. It also feels like a quality product. Very light and responsive. Once people have tried this board, it always becomes their favourite for distance paddling.
