The Whopper is one of the most successful SUP boards manufactured by Starboard. It is reliable, it offers great performance and it is very user friendly. In 2012, the Starboard team has decided to introduce a new, “portable” version of the Whopper: the Astro Whopper. The Astro Whopper offers the same reliable performance as the Whopper, in an inflatable package. Since the Astro Whopper is an inflatable board, it is very easy to store and carry around.

It is the perfect choice for the SUP enthusiasts that travel a lot and need the gear by their side and space is in question. The board uses a full deck and nose EVA cover which assures easy tail riding, and the EVA goes all the way to the edge to provide maximum traction in whitewater or waves. For increased wave riding performance, the board uses removable injection molded fins. The surf rocker and outline create a smooth glide, good speed and excellent control.

The Astro Whopper performs just as a rigid board. Although it is an inflatable board, the Astro Whopper is very durable, due to the 4” reinforced PVC drop-stitch construction material, and can be used in various conditions. The Starboard Astro Whopper is extremely stable and offers a very steady ride. It also has very good tracking and gliding abilities and it offers great maneuverability. The Astro Whopper is a perfect touring and exploring board.
