Starboard GT-R Aluminium Foil

The Starboard Foil GT-R aluminium is between gt and Race. With this model, the mast is 85 cm long. The Starboard GT-R aluminium Foil gives more lift than the GT and is ideal for the lighter speed oriented wind foilers and this foil also works very well under narrower (windfoil) boards. We think this wind foil is closer to the race than against the slalom.

This is a performance foil and ensures that you fly around 8 knots and an experienced wind foilcan foil up to at least 20 knots with it. The large wings and its shape contribute to this and provide more stability and easier 'take off' with little wind. The front wing has an area of 800 cm2 and the back wing 330 cm2. The aluminum fuselage is 95 cm long. This wind foil is slightly less high on the wind and slightly less spacious than the Race foil. But differences are quite small. Compared to the Starboard foil GT Carbon, the mast is a bit wider, making the final speed less high. However this doesn't make much difference with the version with the carbon mast

The GT-R alumium foil is very stable (front rear stability), due to the longer fuselage. Although this is a performance wind foil, we also find him suitable for the 'sporty' novice wind foiler. A very good and welcome addition in the Starboard windfoil range.

Our findings on the Starboard GT-R Aluminium Foil:

+ Lift early by longer fuselage and slightly more stable by shorter mast and suitable for slightly less deep water
+ A fast wind foil, only fractionally slower than the carbon version
+ Flying around 8 knots
+ Very good construction
+ For both experienced and novice wind foiler

- This foil makes the GT redundant
- No storage bag is included

Who is the Starboard GT-R Aluminium Foil suitable for?

+ This wind foil is suitable for demanding experienced wind foilers who are more speed oriented and are looking for that challenge.
+ Looking for maximum speed and also want to wind with more wind
+ Windfoilers who want to foil in flat indoor water
