ULTIMATE WINDSURFING PERFORMANCE
Fin or foil, from 5 knots to 35 knots, the iQFoil package delivers the ultimate in windsurfing racing performance with just one board, one foil, one fin, one sail.
THE iQFOIL CONCEPT AT A GLANCE
iQFOIL 95/100: Our most high-performance 100% foil racing board that is capable of upwind/downwind racing on a fin if the conditions get really tough. The iQFoil 95 is the all-in-one board we are submitting to the 2024 Windsurfing Olympic’s Equipment Evaluation Trials and the official one-design board of Wind Foil 1, a new visionary foiling class. The iQFoil 100 is the board with the highest performance by making the most of the maximum 100cm width allowed in Formula Foil dicipline.
iQFOIL 91: The Junior model with its shape based on the iQFoil 100 with reduced proportions to adapt to lighter riders.
The newest evolution of the Starboard Foil’s ground-breaking Race foil – the double World-Champion PWA Racing Foil with a proven two year track record. The iQFoil foil set includes the new 115 Plus fuselage, an additional 95cm Plus fuselage to enable exciting racing formats that include GPS, Point-to-point and marathon races and a new extra stiff and high performance mast.

THE iQFOIL IN DETAIL
STARBOARD IQFOIL FOIL SET
Back to back 2017/2018 World Champion and Vice World Champion and the most successful racing foil in windsurfing to date: this is the foil that started the iQFoil project and the foil that made foiling in the Olympics a possibility. Its innovative racing geometry was the breakthrough that enabled foiling to cover Windsurfing Olympics’ wind range and performance requirements.

THE NEW iQFOIL 100
Dimensions: 220x100cm. 208 liter.
The extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of the regular Formula’s and the extremely short nose help the board to plane and take-off in the lightest winds. Once up on the foil, the thicker tail provides extra leverage and control while the short nose allows the board to react instantly to every input from its rider: maximise every gust, fly consistently through lulls, fly deeper downwind and tighter upwind.
Available in Carbon Reflex (as shown in picture) and Starlite construction.
THE NEW iQFOIL 95
Dimensions: 220x95cm. 196 liter.
The iQFoil 95 trims the width down to facilitate transport as check-in baggage. At 95cm, the board packed in a board bag fits comfortably inside airport scanners. The iQFoil 95 also includes deeper cut-aways than the iQFoil 100 that reduces tail volume and tail surface area. This helps to promote an even easier take-off.
THE NEW iQFOIL 91
Dimensions: 210x91cm. 165 liter.
The Junior model. Its shape is based on the iQFoil 100 with reduced proportions to adapt to lighter riders 40-70 kg: 10cm shorter, 9cm narrower and thinner for easier handling.
Available in Flax Balsa (as shown in picture) and Starlite construction.
Extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of the regular Formula’s, reduces the wetted area and improves take-off onto the foil.
SHARP RAILS AND BEVELED NOSE
The sharp rails in the tail allows the boards to get planing and reach take off speed more easily. Additionally, the board will bounce off the water if you clip the water surface instead of sticking and throwing you into a catapult.
The beveled nose improves aerodynamics and ultimately provides more control at high speeds.
RECESSED MAST TRACK
Deck concave and recessed mast track for a more vertical sailing position while closing the gap between the sail and the deck of the board.
iQFoil 95 and 100 Recommended fin: Drake Race 68cm (men). 66cm (women)
iQFoil 91 Recommended fin: Drake Race 62cm.
Fins are not included in the board.
Heel extenders are available as an aftermarket accessory. They increase the effective width of the board in the tail to add control and increase upwind/downwind angles.
The iQFoil range comes with a the latest generation of Drake Ultralight straps. These straps are ideal for foiling when foot pressure is lighter than regular windsurfing. The Ultralight’s elongated screw slots also allow the rider to set their back strap extra-wide using hole spacings further apart. This allows the rider’s foot to shift forward for downwind and backwards for upwind, giving perfect trim-adjustment on the fly.
The Foil Box is larger and stronger than a normal fin box to distribute loads over a larger area. It is built using solid sheets of 20 mm thick high-density PVC with 8 mm thick carbon fibre walls, and has a flat, parallel bottom which allows the box to take both types of foil bases: tapered ‘Tuttle-style’ base and rectangular foil bases.
In either case, it is strongly recommended for the front of the foil’s base to reach the bottom of the box. This ensures that the vertical lifting load from the foil will be carried by both the front wall of the box and the bottom wall of the box.
