2018 Starboard Futura 127 Carbon L.C.F
READY TO FOIL board
The test-winning freerace board for technical windsurfing, looking for the impossible: maximum speed mixed with comfort, control and jibing precision. The perfect board for long distance racing.
The Futura shapes are carried-over from 2017 with their shorter, wider outlines, thinner profiles, new tail shapes and new Vee distribution.
They are offered in two technologies: our new Carbon L.C.F. construction designed for the lowest weight but also the lowest carbon footprint and our Carbon Reflex construction, our very lightest technology that uses the most exclusive, lightest biaxial grade carbon fibres for an even lighter weight on the scales.
They have an extra thin profile with a deep deck concave for maximum control, the lowest center of gravity and a more efficient, vertical sail position.
Their narrow tails help improve jibing performance while the added area above the cut-aways improve jibe exit speed without affecting straight line performances.
They have a visible Carbon Innegra rail band that adds to the boards’ core structural stiffness.
SLICK FOOTSTRAPS AND PADS
They come with a new generation of Drake Slick straps that are more comfortable than the Drake UltraLight straps and where the top cover is made from recycled plastic bottles, in partnership with Waste2Wear. They're strong and comfortable with strap-size indicators for easy adjustments.
The Slalom DW model provides huge amounts of speed and acceleration with a great jibing ability.
