Windsurfing was invented in 1967 by Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer.  It quickly became a forerunner for action sports.  Today, it has evolved into a high level professional watersports arena.  From these great roots, come the birth of stand up paddle boarding.  Starboard Sup has been at the front of the action since 1994 creating a leading product and team of athletes that continue to drive the water sports industry forward.  Aloha, Starboard!

Starboard Windsurfing continues to innovate & inspire

When Starboard Windsurfing was founded in 1994, it took the sport to the next level of both accessibility and performance.  With the Professional Windsurfers Association (PWA) introducing the Constructor’s Title in 2006, the game was on.  Driven by working with the world’s best windsurfers to create the most cutting edge boards, Starboard has taken home 11 PWA Constructor’s titles including the 2017 title.

“A massive thank you also goes out to our team riders, designers and shapers without which none of this would have be possible.”
– Tiesda You, Brand Manager
