STARBOARD FOIL X WINDSURF WOOD SANDWICH 2022
STARBOARD FOIL X WINDSURF WOOD SANDWICH 2022 new size 125 slots in between the 105 and 145, becoming our R&D team’s instant favourite. All three sizes have new cutaways running down the rails to reduce the tail volume to allow the rider to sink the tail and pop up onto the foil. An adjusted nose rocker line makes the boards more forgiving when touching down mid-jibe by helping you bounce straight back up. The new mini carry-handle on the bottom makes it easier to carry board and sail together. New centred footstrap positions unlock freestyle and jumping abilities.
What are the recommended foils for the FOIL X?
The Foil X range features compact foil boards designed to foil with smaller, lighter sails. On the foil side, riders can choose between lifty, maneuverable foils like the Starboard Foil SuperCruiser or the faster, high-performance foils like the GT-R Plus. The SuperCruiser offers early take-off, awesome maneuverability and floating foil jibes. The GT-R offers higher top speeds and faster acceleration.
THE FOIL X 105
Dimensions: 185×64, 105 liters
Our most maneuverable and playful board ever, both radical and surprisingly user-friendly. Fly downwind, let your sail out and even transition into surf foiling. The next step in foiling for those in the know. Ultra-compact, yet friendly to uphaul thanks to its wide outline and super-thick nose. The new2021 model is 3cm longer and 1cm wider to add a touch more forgiveness.
THE FOIL X 125
Our intermediate board of the range. It combines an easy ride with more technical possibilities, offering the perfect match for a rider who wants to increase their foiling skills.The 67cm width keeps it stable before take off. The long flat bottom, deep rail cutaways and ultra compact outline then makes it quick to pop out of the water and take off. The reduced volume and thinner profile brings a new sensation of freedom when flying in the air. The middle back footstrap enables jumps and your first 360s. Freestyle is now accessible to intermediate level foilers. A masterclass.
THE FOIL X 145
Dimensions: 193x71cm, 145 liters
With its compact outline, the X 145 is hyper maneuverable and reactive. Yet, with plenty of volume, even progressing windsurfers stepping off a GO will be ready for the X 145. The new rail cutaways will help you take off from just 6 knots of wind and the extended, more curved nose will make it more forgiving when touching down. Powered by a sail between 3.7m2 to 8.0m2 and paired with Starboard Foil’s SuperCruiser, you’ll fly and float your way through foil jibes at speeds lower than you thought possible. Paired with Starboard Foil’s GTR Plus, you’ll unlock more speed, more acceleration and more G forces for a thrilling ride.
