RETROLUTION

MAXIMUM SPEED WITH COMFORT
LONG-DISTANCE BOARD WITH EASY JIBING OUTBOARD AND INBOARD STRAP POSITIONS

The contemporary evolution of the test-winning board started the FreeRace craze for technical windsurfers seeking the impossible: maximum speed combined with comfort, control, and jibing precision. The Futura delivers maximum average speed with total confidence and comfort.

THE FUTURA IN DETAIL

The Futura concept is built around iSonic DNA, utilising a fast, moderately narrow, compact body; perfect for long-distance or drag racing at your local beach. The width gives you wind range and efficiency. Powerful but smooth rails provide power and enhance controlled leverage over the fin. A thinner profile at the mast track lowers the centre of gravity and drive for added control. Optimised stance for longer, more confident fast runs. All Futuras are designed around a double concave entry, flowing to a clean flat vee tail, delivering comfort, control and efficiency. All where it counts. The Futuras allow you to enhance your performance in a more comfortable, accessible and user-friendly package. Save your energy for sailing fun, rather than fighting the board. Maximise your average long distance speed, and blaze through sporty jibes.

DOUBLE STEP CUT AWAYS

Proven iSonic technology; Double Step Cutaways for added release and increased speed.

BOTTOM SHAPE

The Futuras have a more pronounced Vee across the bottom for improved control and comfort through rough chop, smooth-flowing jibes and a more lively ride. Power On.

THIN RAILS

The rails are rounder and thinner than the iSonic rails. More accessible, safer and confident in rough conditions. Smoother in the turns. Easy speed.

DRAKE FREERIDE FIN

Each Futura is supplied with a selected Drake Slalom DW fin. These top-end Ready to Race production fins bring out the best in the Futuras. The Slalom DW model combines impressive speed and acceleration with extraordinary jibing abilities.

DRAKE SLICK FOOTSTRAPS

The premium Drake Slick foot straps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during manufacturing is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance, carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.

LIGHTWEIGHT PADS

The Futuras feature 6mm thick footpads in the tail and 4mm in the front. This combination delivers a highly reactive yet comfortable feel while minimising weight. The thermoformed diamond grooved pattern provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while resisting wear and tear.

CONSTRUCTION

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.
