Star Inflatables new versatile watercraft at Paddlesports Retailer 2018. Rapid Media Staff

New board is loaded with rigging options and built for action

In addition to technical clothes, accessories and safety gear, NRS makes great inflatable boards and boats. This year, they’re branding their inflatable Star boards and kayaks to appeal to paddlers and anglers. The new Rival board has an upturned nose and stern for rough water paddling. A drop-stitched deck is rigid for easy standup paddling.

We like the self-bailing scupper in the center of the deck that drains water. Two side chambers are each inflated separately to keep the board stable and stiff. NRS added rodholder bases, D-rings and webbed loops to attach loads of gear. The Rival comes with a low-profile seat that turns the board into a fishing kayak. We can see the Rival performing well on rocky rivers and swiftwater where tough and resiliant inflatables shine.
