Interview with Starboard CEO Svein Rasmussen and Margareta Engström Part 2



This is the 2nd installment of my interview with Starboard’s Svein Rasmussen and Margareta Engström at the Starboard HQ. Svein showed me an 8½’ X 30″ Sport Tech board used by Ekolu Kalama using wood technology. You can see the pine wood portions of the board’s outer shell which adds rigidity and lightness to the board. Also with us here is Margareta, who’s a professional windsurfer and gets to stand up paddle whenever she can. She also shared her thoughts on the differences between windsurfing as opposed to SUP.

Check out this video to see more of the pine wood board and Margareta’s insights…

    Great interview Evan. I can’t wait to see the new stuff coming out. It was interesting to hear him mention using the boards as therapy for balance issues. Did you happen to mention that we spent some time together? He told me about his friend that had the stroke doing much the same as what I’ve been doing and having similar results.

    great installment, evan. i was particularly fascinated by how cagey he turned when it came to talking about that new surfacing. “we won’t talk too much about that,” i think i heard him say. hmmm…
