New Release

Sonni Hönscheid, the three-time (2014-2016) SUP World champion, is joining the Starboard team.

“We are stoked to see Sonni Hönscheid joining our Starboard team. The mix of her exciting artistic work and amazing paddling makes her a very valuable partner looking into the future of paddle boarding. There are a lot of ladies getting into the water and we at Starboard can’t wait to fully focus on developing amazing gear for all of them,” said Svein Rasmussen, Starboard founder and chief innovator.

Sonni Hönscheid is known for her multiple wins at one of the toughest paddle contests in the world – the Molokai-2-Oahu race, which covers 32 miles over the open sea across the Channel of the Bones.

In 2016, she also won the most important European race at Lost Mills in her home country Germany as well as  the Euro Tour in 2015 and 2016 and selected  SUP World Series event . She is also a team rider for Mercedes, who sponsors the SUP World Series in Scharbeutz, Germany.

Sonni¹s artistic talent will expand to Starboard’s equipment as part of the upcoming 2018 collection.

Sonni lives on the island of Sylt and trains on Maui and Fuerteventura.

She finds her calmness in painting and her colorful art pieces can be seen in a permanent exhibition in Sylt.

Sonni will be at the Dusseldorf Boat show from the 21st until the 29th of January and participate in its first indoor wave competition.

“I´m really happy to be part of the Starboard ‘Dream Team’, besides knowing I will have the fastest boards underneath my feet, I´m also very excited from the art point off view and all the colorful projects coming up. A few years ago I designed some shirts for Ladies and had the chance to get to know a little about the “Tiki” World. I´m very excited to work with a great team off ocean lovers – experts but also perfectionists,“  Hönscheid said.
