It’s the latest and greatest in the world of stand up paddle boarding, specifically, inflatable paddle boarding. Starboard have introduced double chamber inflatable paddle boards across much of their 2018 range. What does this mean for the average paddler? Well, not only do you get the security of a secondary chamber buoyancy in the (extremely) rare situation that the board deflates, but more importantly, you get a better performing board.
Just like buildings and sky scrapers use I-beams for structural rigidity and load bearing, Starboard are using the same concept to increase the stiffness of their already incredibly stiff boards. The I-beam provides stiffness which in turn improves board performance, responsive and speed. Trust me, I know, I have the 2018 Starboard 12’6″ Touring Deluxe DC, DC for double chamber.
