THE VERSATILE WAVE BOARD BRINGS SURFBOARD-LIKE RIDING INTO WINDSURFING. MADE TO LAST AND NOTHING LEFT TO ASK.

A completely reimagined wave range from 78 to 100 liters, this totally new design concept by Remi Vila notably improves wave riding without performance or planing compromise. Inviting riders of any level to turn more over the front foot, while maintaining speed and enjoying an adaptable radius throughout bottom and top turn. Ultra light, yet strong and sturdy with countless of hours of heavy duty testing. You will love it!

THE ULTRA IN DETAIL

An all-round wave board excelling in Euro-Wave conditions, where snappy turns in smaller and control in big, choppy wind waves are of the essence. All new narrow ULTRAs feature lots of volume in the center, thinner rails towards the tail and only a small tail kick. Turns & Control; the recessed deck is a design feature we haven’t yet seen in wave boards and was thoroughly tested by Flo Jung, Antoine Martin, Liam Dunkerbeck, Matteo Iachino and Nico Prien.

It’s a remarkable feeling in the turns when the rails bite into the water at the slightest input, yet can never get too loaded, even when leaning in with all of your weight. A smooth controlled feel of staying connected to the water, even through chop on the wave, which gives you confidence to ride faster and closer to the lip. For progressing wave sailors, a lower mast foot position helps advancing wave sailors balance their weight more forward, maintaining momentum easier and getting to the lip with more speed.

Extra volume in the center keeps you floating in light wind and thanks to the easy-to-engage rail you can ride a larger size board without compromising on tight and radical turns. In lighter winds, you can get planning with less pressure in your sail as the thickness of the board gives plenty of flotation and low resistance as the board pushes through the water. Jump higher; thinner rails and less volume in the tail improve turning with the waves, and also let you carve better into a wave when setting up for a jump. Landing jumps is friendlier on your ankles, because you’re landing on less board volume.

Fast Rockerline

A strong scoop starting from the center and increasing towards the nose. This helps to avoid nose dives in steep waves and allows for aggressive front foot riding, while the rocker towards the tail is very modest, providing easy planing and good top speed.

Narrow Body

The magic combination is the fast rocker with the narrow outline. Aggressive turns with a super adaptable radius in any situation. The modest tail kick gives great planing power and speed for such a narrow board. A perfect combination.

Swallow Tail Shape

The swallow tail shape is featured on all sizes. Compared to a rounded or pin tail it makes the board more compact and allows for tight turns. It keeps the board more connected to the wave and improves the grip so you can push your carving game to the next level.

Thin Rails

Super thin rails in the tail section with a smooth transition to the center make for effortless turning and plenty of grip.

Mono to Double Concave

A classic mono concave nose feeds into an innovative double concave in mono concave mid section, before blending smoothly into a solidly vee’d mild double concave tail.

Centred Volume

With a narrower outline, extra volume is added around the centerline, improving consistency and confidence in marginal conditions. Get planing sooner and maintain momentum and flow in critical situations.

Starbox: Less Weight, faster set up

Featuring two lightweight Starboxes and one US-Box reduces critical swing weight from the tail. More reactivity. The Starbox system allows you to fit Slot Box fins within five seconds each, while retaining your last settings. Get back on the water faster. It is also compatible with US box fins.

Locked and comfortable stance

The Drake footstraps are made from Yulex foam with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel. Under your feet the 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern will provide the necessary grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

Kicker Pad

The rear pad is equipped with a kicker ramp, which allows better lock in the rear strap by twisting the foot when needed.

A pure Thruster

The Vee in the tail is a bottom shape, which is designed to work perfectly with the Thruster fin set-up. If you’re looking for a Quad set-up, you’ll find it on the HYPER, paired with a mono-concave in the tail section.

CONSTRUCTIONS

THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION

The Carbon Reflex construction is our lightest, proven flagship construction and has some of the lowest warranty rates in the industry. Using the lightest biaxial carbon provides more feel, more responsiveness and more controlled flex than conventional boards. On the water, this construction will provide you with ultimate performance. It delivers the most direct feedback from the water surface and allows for quicker and more precise movements. With the Carbon Reflex construction you’ll start planing earlier and keep more speed through turns and wind holes. For 2023, the Magenta highlighted Carbon Reflex is limited in stock, built to order with a custom delivery lead time.

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 over modern, recyclable 3mm PET core foam 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.

2023-Mangrove-Logo-Black-354x354

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 Ultra has an average carbon footprint of 78 kg per board.

2023-POP-Logo-Black-354x354

Buy a board & we pick up 1.1kg of beach/ ocean plastic trash – equivalent to the amount of plastic trash entering the ocean, per person, per year.

The Ultra has an average plastic content of 4 kg per board.
