In this first look video we unpack the new Starboard Airline downwind iSUP for an up and coming video we will be releasing on SUPboarder soon. As well as taking a quick look at the board itself we also look at how Starboard package their inflatable SUPs differently from other SUP brands. Most brands wrap their boards in plastic and tape, but at Starboard its all about recyclable paper. With thousands of iSUPs being sold around the world it makes for a lot of packaging… and rubbish if brands aren’t environmentally aware like Starboard.
Very soon we will be adding a new slider rating to our SUPboarder reviews. Alongside the usual glide and stability slider ratings, we will be rating brands on their environmentally friendly packaging too.
Remember these first look videos are not full SUPboarder reviews, they’re not even close! They are unedited, gut feeling videos showing what’s in the box and how they look for the first time.
