HYPER FOIL

SUP DEDICATED TO FOIL

 

The combination of a short compact outline, distinct channel bottom and thick profile makes it a platform for entry-level learning to foil up to the world’s most progressive riders. Numerous test trips to Bali, Phuket, and continued testing in Hawaii have formed a range that excels in all types of conditions including flat-water pump foiling, wave riding and downwind racing.

Key features

THE BOXY RAIL

Maximize the volume of the outline, thus creating the essential floatation and stability when paddling a shorter board.

THE STRAIGHT OUTLINE

Optimizes the volume and stability to ride a short board that is compact and easy to control when flying.

WIDE NOSE AND TAIL

Provides stability when paddling. The wide tail gives a solid platform to push down to lift up the board, while the wider nose helps release easily and lift on touch downs.

ROUND NOSE

Reduces the nose sticking and subsequent speed loss when touching down after flying. It also helps break the surface tension for faster release and lift.

RECESSED DECK PAD AREA

Lowers the center of gravity for extra stability and control to slightly wedge your feet against the rails.

CHANNEL TAIL

– Provides stability similar to a trimaran. It also increases the tracking and control which is crucial when paddling shorter boards.

– The channels help reduce the wetted surface area to maintain speed on touch downs and releases earlier when getting up. 

CHAMFERED RAIL

Widens towards the nose to limit the rail touching when turning and reduces surface tension, while the tail feeds into a sharp edge for extra stability and release.

SHARP CHANNEL EDGE

Gives a clean release point so the tail doesn’t drag.

ROUND TAIL KICK

Helps leverage the nose to release and pop up quickly.

EXTENDED EVA PAD

– Raised EVA pad on top of the foil box helps identify the standing area without having to look down.

– Gives a solid grip when paddling into waves and when trimming the board.

EVA CENTER RIDGE

Makes it easy to feel and identify the middle of the board to stay centered and balanced.

FOIL BOX POSITION

Is optimized for downwind, pump foiling and wave riding. Both Tuttle box and Plate options allow universal foil mounts on every model.

2 CONSTRUCTIONS TO

CHOOSE FROM

BLUE CARBON TECHNOLOGY

– Lightest weight, Best response, Strongest build

– Full wrap of Armacell foam made of recycled plastic bottles for incredible impact resistance and fatigue strength.

– Natural uni-directional flax sourced from Europe wraps the full rails stiffens the board and avoids total breakage.

– Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.

STARLITE TECHNOLOGY

– Scratch proof Parabolic Carbon Innegra rail.

– A combination of different fiberglass densities wrap the entire hull for strength and durability.

– Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity.

AVAILABLE SIZES

2019-starboard-GO-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-12-0x34

7’7” x 30″

Length: 7’7” / 231 cm.

Width: 30” / 76 cm.

Ultra-stable board that serves a dual purpose: a winner for those learning and needing a stable and wide platform, yet a high-performance and progressive board for heavier riders. 

Being the longest in the range, the extra length makes it easier to catch waves with speed, making it easier to get up with less pressure required to get the lift.


Available technologies:

  • Blue Carbon
  • Starlite

2019-starboard-GO-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-12-0x30

7’2” x 27.5” 

Length: 7’2” / 218 cm.

Width: 27.5” / 70 cm.

The 7’2” gives extra glide and speed from the longer length and narrower width. The extra length makes it easier to paddle into waves with speed which helps to get up foiling quickly. It is also faster to paddle back out to catch more waves. The narrower width reduces the rail from catching or slowing down during manoeuvres.

2019-starboard-GO-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-12-0x34

6’6” x 30″

Length: 6’6” / 198 cm.

Width: 30” / 76 cm.

A highly stable board in a short compact size, perfect for riders wanting short board performance with added comfort and stability. Short length makes it possible to control the board with little movement needed to trim the foil angle. The 30” width combined with the full nose outline and thick rails makes it possible to drop down in size yet maintain stability for heavier riders.

  • Blue Carbon
  • Starlite

2019-starboard-GO-stand-up-paddleboard-2D-11-2x32-2

6’4” x 25”

Length: 6’4” / 193 cm.

Width: 25” / 64 cm.

Being the shortest in the range, the 6’4” is suited for higher skilled and lighter riders. The short length makes it easier to trim the board from the centre without needing to make big movements, giving more central control to adjust the foil and trim. Narrowest width makes it possible to do more radical turns without the rails hitting the water which would slow you down.
