Description

The Starboard Foil X 2020

FOIL FREERIDE: These boards are designed to fly at maximum reaching speeds with emphasis on control and performance. Starboard Foil Freeride boards are available in two new sizes: 125 and 150 liter.

THE NEW FOIL X 105L

Dimensions: 182x63cm. 105 liter.

Starboards most maneuverable and playful board ever, both radical and surprisingly user-friendly. Fly downwind, let your sail out and even imitate surf foiling. The next step in foiling for those in the know. Only 182cm long, yet friendly to uphaul thanks to its wide outline and super-thick nose.

The extra long flat on the X 105 boosts early take-off. Landings and relaunches are effortless due to the ample nose kick. Recommended for riders up to 80kg using a Starboard SuperCruiser foil set.

THE NEW FOIL X 145

Dimensions: 190x71cm. 145 liter.

This new innovative concept blends an ultra-compact shape with an extra thick profile. It’s hyper maneuverable and reactive, yet even progressing windsurfers stepping off a GO will be ready for the X 145. From just 6 knots of wind, you’ll find yourself flying across the water on a board that fits in the back of a car, powered by a sail between 3.7m2 to 8.0m2.

With plenty of float, the X 145 is stable before take off. It’s long flat bottom and ultra compact outline then makes it quick to pop out of the water and take off.

Paired with Starboard’s SuperCruiser foil, learn and float your way through foil jibes at speeds lower than you thought possible, making maneuvers and 360s easier than you could ever imagine.

As the wind picks up, from 15 to 25 knots or more, you switch to smaller sails, say between 3.0 and 4.7 and a whole new world opens up with a foiling style that is all about freedom, weightlessness and style.

Technical Features

Sharp Rails Throughout the Range

Their rails are sharp around the entire board, allowing the boards 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.

Foil Box

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.

Footstraps

Comes with Drake Slick footstraps. They are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.

Construction

The Foil X and Foil Freeride are available in our Flax Balsa construction. 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.
