The Starboard Astro Converse is a new generation type of board. The Converse is a great surf SUP board, but the Astro Converse is oriented more towards exploring and touring. This is an inflatable board, designed with the needs of the SUP rider who travels across the globe in search of the perfect SUP venue. Since it is an inflatable board, it is very easy to transport and store. It has the same performance as a rigid board and it is very durable.

It is crafted using strong 4” reinforced PVC drop-stitch material which allows it to be inflated up to 15 psi max pressure. The board comes complete with backpack, repair kit and high pressure single action pump. It features a full deck and nose EVA cover and the EVA goes all the way to the edge to provide maximum traction in whitewater or waves. Foiled removable injection molded fins assure increased wave riding performance. The surf rocker and outline assure good speed, acceleration and maneuverability.

The board also features forward placed tie down points to allow the rider carry travel bags along his cruise. The board offers balanced glide and tracking abilities, but very good stability and maneuverability. It can be controlled in all sorts of conditions without hassle. It is the perfect board for a perfect SUP vacation in any spot of the world.
