Starboard iSonic Speed Slalom Carbon Sandwich 2021
THE LIGHTEST, FASTEST WINDSURF BOARDS
THE CUTTING EDGE IN WINDSURF BOARD TECHNOLOGY
Starboard's flagship racing range with 12 world titles. Each year, Starboard's racing team revisits each model in the relentless pursuit of the ultimate slalom performance at the highest level.
Four new shapes made the cut this year: the 63, 72, 77 and 83. 63: added concave increases confort on this high wind model. Strap positions have been moved back to reduce wetted-surface area to give a board that is more free and always in control.72: the straps are also placed further back. The flat section of the bottom has been reduced on the sides and refined cutaways help the board to fly freer and reach higher top speeds. 77: a more prononced vee at 90cm frees up the board and trims the board more over the fin, improving acceleration and top speed. 83: larger cutaways and a smoother rockerline helps the board fly over chop more easily and reduce wetted-surface area for higher speeds in medium to light winds and choppy waters.
THE BOARDS IN DETAIL:
Matteo Iachino's secret weapon for strong winds. Comfort at high speeds is improved by adding deeper concaves. This comfort allows you to go even faster. The straps positions are further back to reduce the wetted surface area to a minimum, making the board feel totally free while remaining in total control. With this new geometry, you can unlock some insane top speeds. Available in Carbon Sandwich and the flagship Carbon Reflex Sandwich technology.
A favorite on the PWA tour. The wetted surface area was minimized by reducing the length of the flat section close to the rails and tweaking the cut away shape. The result is quicker acceleration and improved top speed. The straps are placed further back to help the board fly free, improving acceleration and top-end speed.
The iSonic 83 has a new smoother rocker line that improves the board?s comfort in choppy water. The new cutaway shapes reduce the wetted surface area. Together, they allow the board to fly with more speed in heavier chop than before. Reducing the wetted surface area also helps extract maximum acceleration from gusts of wind.
Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.
The iSonics feature 6mm thick footpads in the tail and 4mm in the front. A combination proven to deliver a highly reactive yet comfortable feel. The diamond grooving pattern provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

CARBON REFLEX SANDWICH:
THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION
The Carbon Reflex construction with fluorescent orange highlight colors is our lightest, most exclusive and limited edition flagship construction using a combination of the lightest biaxial carbon and uni-directional carbon. They offer the quickest acceleration and the earliest take-off speeds.
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FOR ISONIC
Ultralight weight at a more affordable price and using more environmentally friendly materials. The bottom is built in full T700 uni-directional ?at-woven carbon for maximum sti?ness while the deck is 60% carbon, alternating between uni-directional and bi-axial carbon layers for optimized ?ex. The composite sandwich layers include the use of ultra-high density PET and PVC foam.
