2022 STARBOARD FOIL FREERIDE WOOD SANDWICH
We have taken the well proven 2021 Foil Freeride best sellers and test winners to the next level . You will pop up on the foil earlier with the deep & long cut away concept proven in our foil slalom boards. The hull easily adjusts to the correct position in flight mode and locks into a stable path.
You will sense the added control at higher speeds as a result of the balanced outline and perfect trim between mast track, foil box and strap placement. The rounder nose outline, refined nose edge and concave deck, increases lift and speed, allowing us to move the inserts further forward to maximize the higher performance.
The ergonomically shaped standing area and thick deck pad creates an ultra comfortable feel, which make endless reaches even more joyful. Smooth touch downs and semi automatic relaunching makes the 125 and 150 super easy to ride. When setting foot on the board, you will feel a balance, the sensation of perfection that remains throughout upwind, reaching, downwind, tacking, jibing and “surface to air” transitions. It is truly the next level of Foil Freeride! We invite you to share the joy with us.
LIGHTWEIGHT BOARDS DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP AS OUR LOWEST CARBON FOOTPRINT
Jean Louis Colmas started the development of wood sandwich boards in 1985 and by 1994 we introduced his technology in our production. This collaboration led to multiple world championships titles across all disciplines in Windsurfing and it remains a Starboard original. 0.6 mm Australian pine laminated deck increases impact strength while natural unidirectional fibres create awesome reflex sensations. With 500 kg/m3 density, the Pinewood absorbs minimal resin leading to a light board and crisp ride feel. The entire board is wrapped in a 3mm PVC sandwich for long term durability and that classic feel under foot. A protective film covers the wood to hinder the sun’s UV impact over time.
