Starboard team rider, Sonni Honscheid has designed the 2018 line of Starboard Tikhine standup paddle boards. Sonni is both an artist and a sup racer and Starboard mastermind/CEO, Svein Rasmussen, offered her the opportunity to bring her ART on board.

Pretty in Pink (and every other color) in this line of standup paddleboards designed specifically for women.

Starboard’s Go Range “Art You can Ride” line is full of color, fun and deep ocean inspiration

If you know Sonni Honscheid’s artwork, you know it’s whimsical, colorful and FULL of love for the ocean.  Her website is a journey through color and vibrant energy, and it will inspire you to celebrate a life on the water.

“The ocean is my main inspiration.” — Sonni Honscheid

So, when Sonni was brought over from SIC to Starboard International, Starboard’s CEO Svein Rasmussen (an artist in his own right who celebrates PEOPLE like most of us celebrate ART), asked her if she would design Starboard’s upcoming Tikhine line of paddle boards, a line that is made specifically for women.

This 2018 Tikhine line of “Art You can Ride” by Starboard and Sonni, is being shipped in both inflatables and composites as special editions begin to drop in to select retailer markets this month.

Here’s what Sonni has to say about her recent collaboration:

Painting is like writing a diary for me about all my experiences, paddling and exploring different places around the world with their beautiful landscapes, people, different cultures and the OCEAN connecting everything.

The ocean is my main inspiration.

I’m really proud and happy to have the chance on this beautiful collaboration with Starboard on the Tikhine Go Range, “Art You can Ride” line of standup paddle boards – a result combining my two biggest passions – paddling and art.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
