Size Matters: Ignite

Choosing the right size freestyle board for your weight is crucial. We know that size matters also for our Ignite’s and that is why we have 3 sizes to choose from. The Ignite is a hybrid board that comes with 2 different fins and foot strap settings. This allows you to transform your high-performance freestyle board into a fun, super fast and comfortable freeride board just with the help of one screwdriver.

Ignite size matters because for freestyling it is important to have a board that is; as small as possible but as big as necessary. Being small in size makes the board easier to handle and lighter during your moves. But a bigger volume will help you to float easily, start planing and generate speed as quickly as possible.

Starboard’s Ignite comes in 3 sizes:

87l, 93l, and 103l

Find out which size our freestyle Dream Team chooses to compete with for different conditions. Sarah-Quita, Oda Johanne, Steven Van Broekhoeven, Lennart Neubauer and Dudu Levi answered the following questions: 

–  What’s your weight?
–  Which Ignite sizes did you choose and why?
–  What wind range do you use your boards in?
–  What fin sizes do you use?
–  If you had to choose just 1 size which would you choose?

Size matters for all our boards and is perhaps the most important factor regarding high performance. To help you choose the right size high-performance boards for wave sailing and slalom racing we have asked our Dream Team which sizes they choose.
