STARBOARD Foil Boards 2019
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?
FEATURES- 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.
Foil 177 - A racing machine built to win
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. - Available in Carbon Reflex.
FOIL 144 - A playful light wind 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. Available in Flax Balsa.
Foil 122 - 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.
Available in Flax Balsa.
Foil 111 - Foil board for stronger winds
If you?re a high-level windsurfer using a 5.6m2 sail or smaller, this is the board for you. Short, compact, ultra-reactive and lightweight underfoot, the 111 is the most fun foil board of the family.
Available in Flax Balsa.
Flax balsa for the 100 - 111 - 122 - 144
Our most innovative technology. Natural end-grain balsa covers the bottom of the board, providing the board with its overall stiffness and reduced weight. The full sandwich deck uses natural uni-directional flax fibres and carbon stripes to reinforce and stiffen the most stressed sections.
The Foil 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.
