Over the past years, Starboard’s Foil Freerides have become our best selling board as well as test winners and the global benchmark for freeride foil boards. This year we have taken it to the next level. A sensation of perfection, from the moment you step foot on the board. Effortless take offs with the reshaped cut-outs and rock steady flights thanks to a balanced trim between mast track, foil box and straps. Enjoy the next level of Freeride Foiling with us.
THE FOIL FREERIDE IN DETAIL
Based on a more powerful platform than freestyle designs, our Foil Freeride evolved to a board/foil geometry and rider stance which provide even more control and confidence at high speed. The Foil Freeride easily maintains optimum trim in lighter conditions, or fast flight mode, even when paired with more powerful sail and foil combinations.
Fly up onto the foil earlier with the extended long cutaway concept proven in our performance slalom foil boards. An efficient nose profile and concave deck increase lift and speed, allowing the strap inserts to move forward for higher performance. An ergonomically shaped standing area and comfortable deck pads ensure endless long reaches are even more enjoyable.
Smooth touchdowns and intuitive relaunching ensure the 125 and 150 remain easy to ride. Foil Freeride delivers perfect balance throughout upwind, reaching, downwind, tacking, jibing and “surface to air” transitions.
IMPROVED VOLUME DISTRIBUTION AND REDUCED SWING WEIGHT
Shorter noses and mast track further improve manoeuvrability and promote easy take-offs. They also reduce swing weight for a lighter, floating sensation. Improved volume distribution, thin profiles, and flat decks enhance stability and control.
EASY AND CONFIDENT ACTION
The Foil Freeride promotes quick planing and early take-offs. Landings and relaunches are effortless due to increased nose rocker. Hard rail edges along the length of the board ensure it rebounds confidently off the water during touchdowns.
FOIL OPTIMISED PADS
With fewer impacts to absorb when foiling, we’ve designed these pads to be extra thin for added control and feedback while retaining the diamond grooves for perfect grip.
The Drake foot straps are made from premium Yulex foam with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel. The perfect connection for long freeride adventures.
