Starboard and their international teams have won hundreds of world champion titles over the years. The Starboard brand was founded in 1994 by Svein Rasmussen, a well known windsurf racer that entered his first windsurf board in 1978. In 1994, Svein started Starboard and developed the unique Wood Sandwich Technology in co-operation with Jean Louis Colmas that created a significantly lighter and stronger board that set a new standard. Then in 2006, Starboards, Svein wanted to develop new lightwind windsurfing boards, that turned into the first of Starboards paddle boards and saw Starboard become the first brand to mass produce paddle boards on an international scale. In a short time, Starboard SUP developed an exciting range of the shortest wave boards, to the longest race boards, and tandem boards.
