BOARDS DESIGNED JUST FOR FOIL
FOUR NEW SIZES JOINS THE BEST-SELLING 122 WE INTRODUCED LAST YEAR
Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently close to thirty knots. What could be more fun than foil ?
– Wide tails –
– Sharp rails –
– Thin boards –
– Ultralight foot straps –
– Designed by the Foil World Champion team –
Five foil-dedicated boards updates the 2019 range. Their wide tails will give you more control over the foil and better performance upwind. Their rails are sharp around the entire board. This allows the board to get planing and reach take off speed more easily. Additionally, the board will bounce off the water if you clip the water surface instead of sticking and throwing you into a catapult. Keeping the boards thin also give you more control and balance when in flight. We’ve also made sure that the footstrap inserts cover a wide variety of foil geometries and skill levels.
1ST & 2ND OVERALL LAST YEAR AND ALREADY 4 TIMES ON THE PODIUM THIS YEAR
Thin and shaped with an ultra-wide tail, the 177 climbs upwind and holds itself steady in the most difficult conditions. The ultra-wide nose generates massive lift to give it the earliest take-off, helps it find the deepest downwind angles and allows racers to tack and take-off as fast as possible. Go for maximum VMG or bear off to gather speed: the 177 is designed to put the odds on your side and give racers all the options.
MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE A LIFETIME MEMORY
144 LTR – A PLAYFUL LIGHT WIND PERFORMANCE FOIL BOARD
The freeride choice for lighter winds. It’s short so you foil on this board using a more upright foiling stance. Then it will reward you with a compact, lightweight feel during flight with instant reactions.
122 LTR – THE BEST SELLER
Our best-selling foil board that carries over into the new season. It’s longer and designed to be the easiest and most fun foil board in medium winds. The body position is the same as normal windsurfing, allowing many windsurfers to transition from planing to foiling totally naturally.
RELIVE FEELINGS OF PASSION ONCE MORE
“The first time I flew, it was a revelation. A mind-blowing, magical, memorable moment on par with those early planing days. Don’t we all remember the first time we got planing? Who would have thought that there was another hidden level in windsurfing. We windsurfers savor those memories and here we are, with an opportunity to relive those feelings once more. Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently close to thirty knots. What could be more fun? The foil adventure begins.” – Tiesda You – Brand Manager of Starboard Windsurfing
DRAKE ULTRALIGHT SLALOM RACE FOOT STRAPS
Our boards come with a new generation of Drake Ultralight straps. These straps are ideal for foiling when foot pressure is lighter than regular windsurfing. Conventional footstraps can feel too stiff and sticky. The Ultralight’s elongated screw slots also allow the rider to set their back strap extra-wide using hole spacings further apart. This allows the rider’s foot to shift forward for downwind and backwards for upwind, giving perfect trim-adjustment on the fly.
The Box is larger and stronger than a normal fin box to distribute loads over a larger area. It is built using solid sheets of 20 mm thick high-density PVC with 8 mm thick carbon fibre walls, and has a flat, parallel bottom which allows the box to take both types of foil bases: tapered ‘Tuttle-style’ base and rectangular foil bases.
In either case, it is strongly recommended for the front of the foil’s base to reach the bottom of the box. This ensures that the vertical lifting load from the foil will be carried by both the front wall of the box and the bottom wall of the box.
