A la une Matos News — 26 March 2013

Starboard, la marque au Tiki est très heureuse d’intégrer dans son team international, la fine fleur du stand up surfing français en la personne de Ben Carpentier. Après une saison 2012 pour le moins prometteuse pour son jeune âge, (Benoit termine 7ème overall sur le SUWT, voir le détail de ses résultats plus bas), le jeune français espère concrétiser en 2013 tous les espoirs que beaucoup misent sur lui sur ses nouvelles planches de productions Starboard. Originaire de Plougonvelin, Benoit a naturellement et officiellement signé son contrat au shop de Brest SwellAddiction et ce après avoir testé les planches de la marque lors de son passage à Maui après le Sunset Beach Pro. Benoit Carpentier s’envolera donc avec ses nouvelles planches Starboard à Abu Dhabi pour le “SUWT invitational” sur vagues artificielles.

Starboard is pleased to announce that Benoit Carpentier of Brest, France will join the 2013 International SUP Dream Team.  Coming off a competitive 2012 season (7th overall on the Stand Up World Tour), the young Frenchman will look to take his skills to the next level by riding Starboard’s highly technical, lightweight, and stable carbon fiber Surf Pro SUP production boards.  “We are very excited to have Benoit join our team, he is great fit for our brand and for our image in France. Coming from a competitive and successful water sporting family, we feel Benoit will have the necessary support and now products he needs to ‘Live the Tiki Life’ and to realize his dreams. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Benoit and his family.”

Background from Benoit:
I was born in Brest and have always lived near the seaside in Plougonvelin on the coast of the Iroise sea in Brittany. My parents, windsurfing enthusiasts and former competitors, have brought to my two brothers, my sister and me a whole maritime culture: fishing, sailing (dinghy, cruiser, catamaran) , windsurfing, kayaking, diving, snorkeling and surfing.

Of all these experiences, surfing has been the center of the whole family’s life. We are used to sharing our boards, so I enjoy trying all types of boards and now I do three disciplines in competition : surf, longboard and stand up paddle.

In surf, I’m one of the best Brittany juniors. In longboard, I’m one of the best France juniors. My favorite discipline and the one I do best in is stand up paddling and since 2012, I’m on the Stand Up World Tour.

Competition motivates me a lot and I also enjoy traveling. These two aspects of surfing give me beautiful human and sporting adventures with seniors to help me grow. It’s always exciting and I wish to multiply these kinds of experiences!
