Ultra High Aspect Ratio Foils for Advanced Riders
What you get: maximum speed, pin-point flying precision and razor-sharp handling.
What you need: the ability to keep speed to avoid stalling, the technical skill to pump a highly technical wing.

Front view: a gentle moustache front view with a shallow monoconcave in the centre section and gently raising wing tips (A). The monoconcave boosts take-off power while remaining longitudinally stable at high speeds, while the gently raising wing tips allow the tips to breach the surface seamlessly without ventilation: you won't even feel the wing tips have breached the surface, letting you focus on speed in total control.
Wing section (B): a modified version of the Tom Speer H005 foil profile, a profile we love for its incredible lift / drag ratio across a wide performance range.
Thinned-out wing tips (C) help us reduce drag generated from tip-vortices and to reduce the pressure difference between the upper and lower surfaces, enabling that magical seamless tip-breaching effect. Thinner tips also improve maneuverability when the tips travels at higher speeds than the centre section.
Fast, precise and maneuverable, the Glider Pro is an amazing wing when tow-foiling into waves.
TWO MAST OPTIONS FOR THE GLIDER PRO:
Foam Core Carbon MkII
The fast, lightweight, maneuverable and most responsive mast, weighing in at 1.6kg. The MkII shape has a sharper leading edge, a sharper trailing edge and 1.5˚ fuselage-angle built-in.
The C300 Foam Core Construction is what makes this mast super light while the 15.2mm thickness at the narrowest point is what keeps the mast super stiff. The MkII Foam Core Carbon mast: the ultimate choice when you're looking for the optimal blend of weight, stiffness and speed.
|Foam Core Carbon MkII Mast supplied with the Glider Pro: 82cm
Solid Core Carbon MkII
Our fastest mast. The Solid Core Carbon MkII masts are super thin and sharp, measuring just 13.5mm at its thinnest point. The mast profile is designed for maximum speed with maximum ventilation-resistance at high speeds. This mast also has 1.5˚ fuselage-angle built-in.
Available in C400 and C600, we recommend the C400 model for the Glider Pro. The C400 offers outstanding stiffness, speed and performance. While the C600 is ultimately our stiffest mast, its higher price-point means that we would recommend it only for elite racers looking for the ultimate mast to pair with the Team R foil.
Note 1: the Solid Core Carbon MkII masts are only sold as an individual part. When pairing it with Glider Pro front and tail wings, please remember to purchase a Quick Lock II fuselage to complete the foil.
Note 2: the Solid Core Carbon MkII masts are available in Top Plate mount and Deep Tuttle mount. Please check which mount your board uses and choose the mast accordingly.
|Recommended Solid Core Carbon MkII Mast: C400 88cm
MAST ANGLE SPACERS
A 1.5° mast angle spacer is supplied with each mast set and a 3° mast angle spacer is also available as an accessory item.
Use these spacers to lift the nose higher when flying, if the board feels it is pointing too far down.
2x STIFFER 2x STRONGER
In 2020, Starboard Foils introduced the quickest foil assembly system with Quick Lock.
For 2022 and continuing into 2023 and 2024, Quick Lock II offers 55% more thickness and a new Lock-Slot, making the front wing connection twice as stiff and twice as strong for impeccable control and flight stability.
WHAT MAKES IT SO STIFF?
The cross section of the front wing male ferrule is 55% thicker compared to the original Quick Lock: less twist = more control.
The tail wing section and the mast slot is the same as on the original Quick Lock fuselage, so masts and tail wings are cross-compatible.
The new Lock-Slot on the top adds an an extra mechanical locking point.
The new octagonal shape of the male ferrule, with flat sides and sharp corners, maximizes the interlocking surface areas.

ADJUST YOUR FUSELAGE LENGTH
The Quick Lock II comes with 20mm spacers that allow you to extend the foil's wing-base by up to 40mm
|1 - No spacers
|2 - Tail spacer
|More flight stability, less maneuverability
|3 - Front spacer
|More power and upwind drive
|4 - Both spacers
|More power and maximum stability, minimum maneuverability
CUSTOMIZE YOUR FOIL
CHOPPING THE TAIL PIECE
Starboard Foils' unique Quick Lock system also allows you to reduce fuselage length by chopping down the tail piece.
Instead of buying an entirely new fuselage to gain reactivity, increase manoeuvrability or to quicken pumping cadence, simply check out this video to see how we take just a few minutes to customise tail wings to our individual styles.
