Starboard was founded in 1994 by Svein Rasmussen, a well known racer that entered his first windsurf board in 1978. Svein won the Windsurfer Europeans in 1980, Mistral Worlds in 1983, was a Gold medal candidate for the 84 Olympics and spent 10 years on the PWA pro-circuit. He also was the first sailor to win all disciplines in the IFCA Production Board Class Worlds, which he won in 1991.
In 1994, Svein started Starboard by developing the unique Wood Sandwich Technology in co-operation with Jean Louis Colmas from New Caledonia.
The boards were significantly lighter and stronger than the completion and set the new standard in high technology.
