FOILS MADE TO FLY
Windsurfing, wingfoiling, surfing or paddleboarding: Starboard Foils is the modular foiling platform that evolves with you.
Starboard Foils' Modular Platform
Wings, fuselages and masts can be interchanged to match rider style, foiling conditions and sport discipline.
Our Wind Foils ---> SuperCruiser // Freeride Plus // GT-R Plus // Race Plus // iQFoil
Our Wing and Wave Foils ---> S-Type // E-Type // X-Type // Ocean Surf
DESIGN FOR FLIGHTNESS
From 2.7kg with the Carbon Monolithic mast // From 3.4kg with the Aluminium V7 mast
When wing and wave foiling, lighter foils = early take off, more control, easier handling. For those who prefer heavier foils, our Aluminium series add extra weight. Heavier foils can help the board stay flat and sit stable for progressing riders.
BUILD FOR PRECISION
Fuselages are fully CNC machined from start to finish for maximum precision. With maximum precision, every Starboard Foil flies the way they're meant to fly.
DESIGN SMART: ALUMINIUM FUSELAGES
Aluminium fuselages are simply stiffer and more rigid in torsion compared to carbon fuselages. Starboard Foils pioneered the carbon/aluminium/carbon foil construction that has become the standard adopted by many other foil manufacturers. With maximum stiffness comes maximum control.
BUILD FOR STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS
Starboard Foils wings and masts are made from pre-impregnated high to ultra-high modulus carbon, from 300 up to 680 Gpa. The result? The ultimate foils in strength, weight and stiffness.
DESIGN FROM PRINCIPLES
Starboard Foils led the switch to Torx bolts for foils, a choice made on the basis of Torx' superior strength and reliability. Philips and hex head bolts are more common but they wear out easily - designing from principles led us to choose Torx and supply a torx key with each foil instead.
DESIGN TO RACE
The invention of the racing foil geometry was the breakthrough that enabled the adoption of foiling in the Windsurfing Olympics. With iQFoil starts an exciting new chapter in windsurfing history.
Starboard Foils innovation #042: the use of steel side bolts on all fuselages provides greater strength and stiffness. By PRE-compressing the fuselage to the mast, the assembly becomes vastly stiffer for impeccable flight control.
DESIGN TO EVOLVE
Starboard Foils innovation #01: the interchangeable modular foil system. Start from any foil and swap out wings, masts and fuselages to customise foil performance precisely to your needs.
Thank you for flying with Starboard Foils
Starboard Foils was founded in 2017 by Tiesda You, the creator of many innovative Starboard boards such as Hypersonic, the iSonic, the Serenity, the Aero, the Atom, the AirPlane, the Rio Long Tail, the GO Windsurfer, the ProKids series, Starboard's first Foil boards and of many Starboard technological breakthroughs such as UltraCore and Balsa Sandwich.
"The first time I flew, it was a revelation. A mind-blowing, magical, memorable moment on par with those early planing days or first surfing days. Don’t we all remember the first time we got planing or surfed a wave? We savor those memories and here we are, with an opportunity to relive those feelings once more. Who would have thought that there was another hidden level. Flying over the sea without a sound, zipping along silently. What could be more fun? The foil adventure begins."
