Starboard Wingboard Blue Carbon (2022)
The new Wingboard range from Starboard 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 goal of the Wingboard Foil is to give you maximum performance in a small size while catering to your level, from beginner to expert. These boards are quite stable for their size due to the boxy rails, square nose, and extra platform at the tail. Starboard keeps the board relatively thin over the foil, to keep your feet closer to the foil and give you stability on the foil as well as on the water's surface. The flat tail rocker and sharp rails get you up to foiling speed quickly, so you can effortlessly glide onto a foil. SIZES:-7'4" X 32.5" X 160 liters - The largest Wingboard size, ideal for getting started with the ins and outs of Wingboard Foiling. The 7’4” is the highly anticipated board for the bigger guy, enabling riders up to 115kg to foil like never before.-7'0 x 31" x 145 liters - A progressive board for starting out in Wingboarding. The 7’0” is large enough to cater for riders up to 110kg while still a compact and maneuverable design.-6'3" x 28.5" x 115 liters - The mid-size Wingboard is the ideal balance of stability, glide, and maneuverability for riders up to 100kg-5'2" x 30" x 100 liters - Catering for larger riders while remaining in a compact size. The 5’2” has plenty of volume and width, making flying easy and maneuverable. Offering high-performance riding to riders up to 100kg.-5'2" x 27.5" x 90 liters - A high-performance Wingboard that boasts great maneuverability and performance, yet still allows riders up to 90kg to ride with ease.-4'9" x 26" x 70 liters - Flying is just the beginning with our highest performance Wingboard. The 4’9” is an ultra-compact design that boasts the best maneuverability for advanced riders.
Extensive cost engineering, refining the layups and multiple tests has led to the 2022 Blue Carbon construction.
The Blue Carbon construction is the result of years learning how to produce the lightest and strongest constructions in both SUP & Windsurf, and refining that to come up with a new technology that delivers performance at the best value we have ever introduced in the market.
ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT BIAXIAL CARBON
Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create at stringer, increasing the total breakage strength. The 45-degree woven fibre brings an ultra-crisp and responsive flex and creates the skeleton structure to strengthen the entire board.
2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.
TWIN T-STRINGER DECK AND BOTTOM
PROTECTS AGAINST TOTAL BREAKAGE
The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength. The T-stringers are positioned close to the rail acting similar to an i-beam to endure heavy drops and strong wipe outs.
RIGID STANDING AREA
SUSTAINABLY SOURCED PINE
A standing area of 0.6mm Australian Pine is added for extra deck impact resistance and rigidity.
In the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.
EPS CORE – 15 KG/M³ DENSITY
Shear resistant, fused and moulded individually to fit each and every Starboard board providing high strength at the lightest weight. Our moulded core technology produces zero EPS wastage.
INFUSED PAINT PIGMENT
Paint pigment is infused into the resin during lamination, resulting in a lighter weight board, elimiates paint chipping and reduces the release of harmful paint toxins.
