OUR MISSION & VISION
Starboard was founded with the vision of bringing innovation, quality and inspiration
to the world of wind, water and waves.
Together with customers and partners, we engage at any level possible to protect the fragility of our oceans. Making the best watersports gear backed by endless world titles and product awards, the Tiki brand firmly remains the premium brand in windsurfing and paddle boarding already since 2 decades.
Now Starboard and Tiki strive to not only be the best in the world but also the best for the world.
We love to shape ocean-friendly boards and discover alternatives. By providing high-quality innovative products we get more people into wind and surfing sports and make it possible to enjoy watersports in any conditions at any time. At the same time that we share our passion for watersports, we raise awareness for the need to protect our favorite playground: the oceans.
Everything we do affects the other inhabitants of our planet. Let’s play on the same team. However we’re going to save this planet, we need to work together. One person can make an impact. People together can change the world.
That’s why every member of the Starboard organization – from board builders and designers to team rider – is encouraged to do their part for the environment, whether it’s local trash pick-ups near our office in Thailand, tracking flight miles for our company-wide carbon offset purchase, or planting mangroves at the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar. And no matter what board you’re riding: If you’re helping the planet, you’re helping us – and you’re on the team.
We believe we can save the planet with smart thinking and proactive decisions. We know that clean oceans mean clean air. We, as people of the ocean, feel compelled to tell that story – and do everything we can to mobilise a global movement to protect them.
