StarBoard has Inflatable Sailboard that planes !!

La première planche windsurf freeride gonflable... by Wind_Magazine

Auch hier - auf Deutsch:

Since AIRPLANES are marked as 2016, I looked up the price. Listed near MTL/YUL @ ~$2300 CDN 

Here's a fresh link on analysis of the "board"

Here the board is doing loops !!

In WindSurfing NOW Magazine 02.1 of early 2016 there was an article on the SB AirPlane. There was also a small section on gear trends. Entry level boards now not only have WindSUPs, but also what they are calling inflatable multi-sport boards. Examples are as follows:

Fanatic Viper Air

Naish Crossover Air

StarBoard WindSUP

Progressive Boards Party Barge
The Progressive Boards Party Barge is slated as 1000 liters and can be used as a kind of kayak with seats and paddles, a SUP for two, an optional motor, a windsurfer for one or a windsurfer for two.

To me it seems pretty obvious that they are ALL selling FUN in the SUN 

Now that we are in 2016, the inflatables are actually being used for speed tests !!

the board stiffness starts at the base. some people are considering hard bottoms on the inflatables
