Double-layer, low-extension woven drop-stitch Fusion welded technology adds stiffness, improves durability with a higher resistance to puncture, improves shape stability over time and reduces weight. New improved efficency and reduced drag ensure easier planing. Enclosing the AirPlane?s rear fin box permanently in the board streamlines the bottom shape, which improves early planing and top end speed. The new box is glued in place and no longer removable, which also makes the board easier to set up.
WELDING TECHNOLOGY: HEATED AND BONDED FOR LIFE - Glue is never forever.
Starboards' welding technique turns two into one - using heat to bond two separate pieces of PVC into a single solid unit. Heat-welded PVC creates mechanical bond that's stronger, lasts longer - and is better for the environment.
FULL POWER PLANING -The Starboard invention that created the planing inflatable windsurfing board segment. A proprietary 3D elastomer compound rail edge runs along the rails of the board, creating a hard edge that allows for a clean water release and higher speed, yet fold and roll up. We?ve improved the Rail Edge to improve grip while carve jibing.
MAST TRACK - To make the mast insert system extra safe and strong, we insert it from underneath the board. A deck plate distributes the top load over a large area for added stiffness.
FOOTSTRAP SYSTEM - Starboard's exclusive footstrap insert system uses 7mm thin insert plates that are glued to the board's surface. The footstraps bolt into the embedded brass plate and two male pins connect through the footstrap for a twist-free fitting.
REMOVABLE CENTER FIN - All models have a removable center fin box. Remove the box for an improved paddling experience without the added weight or drag. Attach the box and supplied Drake Shallow center fin to prevent the board from drifting sideways when windsurfing.
THE ROCKER - The rocker has been adjusted to provide the right combination of lift, glide and manoeuvrability. All boards come in 6" thickness.
