2021 Starboard Wingboard - Lite Tech
Sizes: 7'0 x 30" / 6'7 x 28" / 5'8 x 25" / 4'6 x 25"
Which size is right for me?
7'0" x 30" Wingboard
Is the most stable size for heavier riders up to 110kg and those wanting extra stability. The longer length increases the glide and speed to get flying.
6'7" x 28" Wingboard
Is the mid-size, an ideal balance between stability, glide and manoeuvrability for riders up to 95kg.
5'8" x 25" Wingboard
Short length and narrow width at 25" is a performance size for intermediate to advanced riders up to 85kg.
4'6" x 25" Wingboard
Is smallest size and most manoeuvrable model for advanced and lightweight riders up to 75kg.
To get started we need stability and since volume works on leverage, the further away the volume is from your feet, the more stability it creates. We placed the volume in the rails, at the square nose and at the little “platform” at the tail of the board. Stability is also created by having the feet as close to the foil as possible. We do not want to foil with “High Heels”, so the thinner a board is, the better it rides.
Makes it incredibly forgiving on touchdowns as the nose bounces and skims off the large surface area, not sticking and slowing you down.
