HD stands for heavy duty, i.e. high functionality even under heavy use.
The new Starboard HD Suit is not only equipped with a latex cuff at the wrist and ankle but also at the neck, which guarantees 100% waterproofness. This means that the suit can be used – depending on the temperature with warming base and mid layers – even on extremely cold days and is predestined for SUP in flowing water.
The waterproof zip is positioned for easy putting on and taking off.
The three-layer material with Clima Core Technology is breathable and waterproof. Abrasion-resistant Cordura material is used on the seat and knees. Perfect for demanding use in white water. The Clima Core is a wind- and waterproof membrane that reacts to changing weather conditions with its breathable structure and – depending on the outside temperature – radiates or reflects body heat. This ensures a pleasant body climate at all times.
The special paddling movement of SUP is taken into account with elasticity and a special panel layout in the back area. Reflective prints ensure visibility and safety even in diffuse light conditions.
By the way, the HD Suit is also recommended for windsurfers, kiters or sailors. Since the waterproof zip has been moved from the chest over the shoulders, a trapeze can be worn without any problems.
The HD Pro is only available in unisex sizes.
