Starboard Wood SUP’s


Production and custom MADE IN USA wood SUP models

UPDATE: 2011…Starboard no longer builds the TAC…

The Starboard wood TAC SUP’s are truly amazing pieces of workmanship…lightweight and gorgeous…Starboard has been building them since 1994…the labor to wrap the rails with the veneer is beyond impressive…folks that stop in the shop are always very impressed when they see one in person…

These boards are classics that will last a lifetime…likely to become family heirlooms…some have become gorgeous wall hangings…but, they are meant to be paddled and enjoyed…

The big conundrum with owning a gorgeous wood SUP is what to do about deck traction…why have a great looking wood board if you are gonna cover it with a pad???…no worries, Starboard solved this dilemma by developing the clear, NON-ABRASIVE traction material applied to the Terje Haakonsen (TAC) wood boards known as StarTouch…amazing stuff that gets even grippier when wet…problem solved…if you want a bit of comfort, we apply a super-lightweight, non-H20 absorbing, microdot pad in the standing area that blends in with the board’s aesthetics…
