Starboard Wingboard

The new Starboard  Wingboard range takes design inspiration from our high-performance SUP foil boards and Olympic class Windsurf foil boards – combining the speed and efficiency of foiling with the power of the wind.

The aim of the Wingboard Foil is to give you maximum performance in a small size while catering to your level, from beginner to expert.

THE SHAPE

To get started we need stability and since volume works on leverage, the further away the volume is from your feet, the more stability it creates. We placed the volume in the rails, at the square nose and at the little “platform” at the tail of the board. Stability is also created by having the feet as close to the foil as possible. We do not want to foil with “High Heels”, so the thinner a board is, the better it rides.

 

ROUND NOSE

Makes it incredibly forgiving on touchdowns as the nose bounces and skims off the large surface area, not sticking and slowing you down.

RECESSED DECK

Significantly improves stability as you have a lower centre of gravity. It also brings you closer to the foil for more control when up and riding.

THE BOXY RAILS

Pack the volume where you need it, increasing the float and stability so you can ride a narrower and shorter board.

 

HIGH VOLUME TAIL

Boosts the overall float to ride such small boards.

 

FLAT TAIL ROCKER

And sharp rails forward increase ground speed until take off.

 

CHANNEL BOTTOM

That get deeper towards the tail helps to pump, rock the board into release, and also helps for stability.

CUTAWAY TAIL

Allows the board to release that much earlier and reduces the rails from catching through turning.

 

FOOTSTRAP INSERTS

Make it easy to know where to position the feet and always be in the right spot to trim the board.

 

FOIL POSITION

Is optimized to provide early lift for fast takeoffs and gives a very balanced trim when up and riding.

 

CARRY HANDLE

The carry handle is moved to the bottom of the board to avoid interfering when foiling, yet still easy to carry.

BOARD CONSTRUCTIONS

NEW BLUE CARBON

LIGHTWEIGHT, 2x FULL CARBON, STRONG AND DURABLE
  • Full wrap of 150g Biaxial Carbon for its durable skin and strength, combined with a full UD Carbon wrap for additional stiffness and total breakage strength.

  • Extra glass reinforcements are positioned in the critical standing area to prevent heel dents and for extra strength over sharp edges.

  • New extra reinforced foil box uses a large PVC plate sandwiched between 2 x strong glass layers for the highest total breakage strength.

LITE TECH

LIGHT, STRONG, AFFORDABLE
  • Extra rigidity with the introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail / nose reinforcements.

  • Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity in the most critical area.

  • All inserts have added high-density foam reinforcements.
