Windsurfing was invented in 1967 by Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer. It quickly became a forerunner for action sports. Today, it has evolved into a high level professional watersports arena. From these great roots, come the birth of stand up paddle boarding. Starboard Sup has been at the front of the action since 1994 creating a leading product and team of athletes that continue to drive the water sports industry forward. Aloha, Starboard!
