Starboard Foil Freeride Starlite
The Starboard Foil Freeride Starlite Carbon is the best-selling budget-friendly freeride foilboard and has been developed for the recreational wind foiler. Due to the compact dimensions and high volume, this board flies very fast and you can wind foil with it in a relaxed manner. This board is one of the easiest to wind foil boards on the market. With a small wind force four you can already wind foil with this. Half wind, upwind and downwind, no problem. This is the variant in the Starlite version. A very strong construction that is slightly heavier than the Wood Sandwich version. The board has a lot of volume, especially in the nose of the board. The board is only 207 cm long. That takes some getting used to with tacking. In any case, it is not the volume (also in the nose) that is the issue. The rectangular design of the board ensures that you always look good. The wide back and the high volume ensure that you can plan this board very easily and then quickly take to the air, also jibing is very easy. Our experience with this board is that it foils very relaxed, you only notice the higher weight when planing with very little wind, which takes a little more effort than with the lighter Wood Sandwich version. The board is more than € 500 cheaper than the lighter version! Starboard itself indicates that you can use sails up to 9.5 m2 with this. Our experience is that an 8.0 m2 is a bit the max.
Foot band positions
The board has several rows of foot strap plugs, making it easy to adjust the character of the board. If you put the foot tires out, the board will get some more freerace properties (you can then foil upwind more easily). If you put the foot straps in more, you can cratthe more relaxed half wind.
What wind foil?
Do you want to go freeracing? Then the Starboard GT-R or GT-R plus is the best choice. This gives the board a bit more of the racing characteristics and is easier to wind up and downwind and is also considerably faster due to the wind foil. Do you want to scrout back and forth relaxed? Then go for the Starboard Super Cruizer or Starboard Freeride.
