Starboard Foil Race - Windfoil Course Racing
From 5 knots to 35 knots, the Foil Race delivers the ultimate in windsurfing racing performance. The all-new Foil 100 is exceptionally light for its size and shoots up- and downwind like no Starboard ever before.
The extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of a traditional formula board and the extremely short nose help the board to plane and take-off in the lightest winds. Once up on the foil, the thicker tails of both models provide extra leverage and control while the short noses allow them to react instantly to every input from its rider: maximise every gust, fly consistently through lulls, fly deeper downwind and tighter upwind.
The short noses allow these boards to react instantly to every input from its rider: maximise every gust & fly consistently through lulls. Once up on the foil, the thicker tails of both models provide extra leverage and let you fly deeper downwind and tighter upwind. There are less impacts to absorb when foiling. In fact, there are none. So we’ve designed the pads to be extra thin for added control and kept the diamond grooves for the perfect grip. The extra-large cutaways help the board to plane and take-off in the lightest winds. The side cutaways concept has been pushed to the max to allow enough speed in displacement mode to get on foil, so you can take off even before reaching planing speeds. The board is shaped like a water drop from the nose to the tail, in order to reduce the drag from the water but also to increase aerodynamic efficicency. As a result, the board is very slippery and stable in the air. The Foil Race range comes with a the latest generation of Drake Ultralight straps. These straps are ideal for foiling when foot pressure is lighter than regular windsurfing. The Ultralight’s elongated screw slots also allow the rider to set their back strap extra-wide using hole spacings further apart.
