Starboard Tiki Tour

This Summer we are embarking on our biggest ever SUP Demo tour in June 2015. The Starboard SUP Demo Van will be loaded to the roof and sets off round the country, bringing the latest and greatest kit to a beach, lake or river near you.

But.. It is more than just a demo tour, we are creating a mini festival of events at each stop, making this tour the most exciting the UK has ever seen. The Tiki Tour is about inspiring people to get on the water, having fun and ultimately giving everyone the option to try every element of the sport.
