Main Supporters

Starboard, a premier board and paddle manufacturer, was founded in 1994 by Svein Rasmussen. It all came from the vision of bringing innovation, quality and inspiration to the world of wind and water. That has fostered a whole group of friends around the world who love to play in the ocean and protect it, they along with AquaPaddle, want to help reinforce this mass movement of connecting people to nature so we all can better understand how to protect our planet.

“As Starboard distributor for the UK, we are very keen to support AquaPaddle, bringing paddlers together to enjoy the wonderful sport of stand-up paddling in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment. We love how paddlers of mixed abilities come together to share the water, whether to cruise the 5km distance in a leisurely manner, or use it as a time-trial and paddle as fast as possible. It’s also great to see an organised activity where newcomers can pick up tips from the more advanced paddlers and we’ll be actively encouraging our riders and ambassadors to be attending their local AquaPaddle events to share their love of the sport and pass on their knowledge to fellow paddlers.”
