Starboard team rider, Sonni Honscheid has designed the 2018 line of Starboard Tikhine standup paddle boards. Sonni is both an artist and a sup racer and Starboard mastermind/CEO, Svein Rasmussen, offered her the opportunity to bring her ART on board.

Pretty in Pink (and every other color) in this line of standup paddleboards designed specifically for women.

Starboard’s Go Range “Art You can Ride” line is full of color, fun and deep ocean inspiration

If you know Sonni Honscheid’s artwork, you know it’s whimsical, colorful and FULL of love for the ocean.  Her website is a journey through color and vibrant energy, and it will inspire you to celebrate a life on the water.

“The ocean is my main inspiration.” — Sonni Honscheid

So, when Sonni was brought over from SIC to Starboard International, Starboard’s CEO Svein Rasmussen (an artist in his own right who celebrates PEOPLE like most of us celebrate ART), asked her if she would design Starboard’s upcoming Tikhine line of paddle boards, a line that is made specifically for women.

Starboard’s Tikhine line seeks to celebrate the women of standup paddle boarding with vibrant colors and tons of style. These are a limited edition board so be sure to reserve yours today.

This 2018 Tikhine line of “Art You can Ride” by Starboard and Sonni, is being shipped in both inflatables and composites as special editions begin to drop in to select retailer markets this month.

Here’s what Sonni has to say about her recent collaboration:

Painting is like writing a diary for me about all my experiences, paddling and exploring different places around the world with their beautiful landscapes, people, different cultures and the OCEAN connecting everything.

The ocean is my main inspiration.

I’m really proud and happy to have the chance on this beautiful collaboration with Starboard on the Tikhine Go Range, “Art You can Ride” line of standup paddle boards – a result combining my two biggest passions – paddling and art.
