UNLEASH THE FREERIDE FOILING EXPERIENCE

Starboard’s Foil Freerides continue to dominate the market as the ultimate choice for freeride foil boards. Setting new standards and consistently surpassing expectations, these boards offer unmatched versatility and exhilarating performance. With a perfect blend of balance and control, effortless take-offs and exhilarating flights are simply second nature. Elevate your freeride foiling to the next level.

THE FOIL FREERIDE IN DETAIL

For 2024, we introduce exciting updates to the Foil Freeride lineup. To enhance performance, we have focused on reducing aerodynamic drag by implementing a lower rocker profile. Additionally, we have incorporated a massive vee design, which effectively minimizes the risk of catapults, allowing riders to push their limits with confidence. Improved take-offs are now achieved through the progressive tail kick, providing the necessary speed for a seamless transition onto the foil. This design element optimizes the board’s performance and enhances the overall foiling experience. Both sizes have been renamed to represent their respective widths: 75 and 85. These changes ensure a more precise selection process, catering to individual preferences and skill levels.

EARLY TAKE OFF

IMPROVED VOLUME DISTRIBUTION AND REDUCED SWING WEIGHT

Further enhancing manoeuvrability, the Foil Freeride features shorter noses and mast tracks. These design elements promote easy take-offs, and also reduce swing weight, providing a lighter and more floating sensation. Improved volume distribution, thin profiles, and flat decks contribute to enhanced stability and control.

SEAMLESS AND CONFIDENT ACTION

Experience quick planing and early take-offs with the Foil Freeride. Effortless landings and relaunches are facilitated by increased nose rocker. The board’s hard rail edges ensure confident rebounding off the water during touchdowns.

FOIL-OPTIMIZED PADS

The Foil Freeride is equipped with thin pads specially designed for enhanced control and feedback during foiling. These pads are engineered to absorb fewer impacts, while the diamond grooves ensure perfect grip.

YULEX NEOPRENE

For a comfortable and reliable connection during long freeride adventures, the Drake foot straps are constructed using premium Yulex foam and the smoothest fabric available.

RECOMMENDED FOILS

Consider pairing the Foil Freeride with Starboard Evolution Foils such as the SuperFlyer, Freeride, Slalom, or Race models for optimal performance.

CONSTRUCTIONS

LIGHTWEIGHT BOARDS DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP AS OUR LOWEST CARBON FOOTPRINT

Developed by Jean Louis Colmas in 1984, Wood Technology became Starboard’s trademark construction in 1995. Wood Technology remains a favourite for riders preferring more comfort, more control and the unique crisp feel of an original Starboard. It’s time to bring back this technology while reducing our CO2 footprint. Full wood sandwich lamination of 0.6mm Australian Pinewood, ensures durability and comfort in a good strength to weight ratio. Today’s wood is less visible in modern graphics; UV protected by fresh blue paint and stickers that compliment the natural grain with a really nice effect. A classy re-edition of a classic Starboard Original.

VALUE AND QUALITY

For every board sold, Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation. Each Mighty Mangrove sinks down 673kg of VCS certified CO2 during its first 25 years.

Together, our 3 mangroves offset the boards Carbon Emissions 10 X over and fund local livelihoods projects in Myanmar.

The Foil Freeride has an average carbon footprint of 78 kg per board.
