Start-up Tripstix: SUP board producer launches crowdfunding campaign

What's special is the two-chamber system: Tripstix's inflatable stand-up paddle boards are almost market-ready. Following many years of tinkering and improvements, the Munich-based start-up has now launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to produce its ISPO BRANDNEW award-winning SUPs.

Tripstix's SUP boards are inflatable and therefore easy to transport.

The first Tripstix boards are to be shipped by October, 2017, at the latest, according to the Kickstarter project website. The Munich-based start-up aims to collect 100,000 Euros in funds from private takers. The discounted price for the SUP boards starts at 1099 Euros.


Tripstix: Innovative SUP boards

Stefan Klare is the man behind Tripstix. The engineer developed a board composed of an air and a vacuum chamber, with the air chamber giving the board its shape – and thanks to its precise shape and high flexural rigidity, this board is able to keep up with traditional hard boards. At the same time, it can be inflated quickly and is easy to transport.

Stefan Klare is the founder of Tripstix. He and his team are now planning how to get their SUP boards on the market.
