Our most powerful boards, with the widest wind range and the earliest planing performance.
The lightwind, course racing powerhouse, entering its second season and now also ready to foil. Fit Starboard’s Race foil and go upwind/downwind faster, more efficiently and at angles you’d never thought possible.
THE FORMULA BOARDS AT A GLANCE
FORMULA 177: Compared to the previous generation the bullet nose is 2cm lower to improve aerodynamics, add more control and create a smoother transition into planing. The cutaways are 2cm longer to improve top-end speed and generate more lift from the fin. Thicker, boxier rails improve upwind performance and increase the rider’s leverage over the board for more power. Ready to Foil.
DECK CONCAVE AND CAMEL BUMP
Deck concave and recessed mast track for a more vertical sailing position while closing the gap between the sail and the deck of the board. The camel bump deck shape in the tail provides back foot grip and more power, an advantage after every tack and jibe as you pump quicker and accelerate away from competitors faster.
The Formula One uses our Bullet Nose design with a low angle of attack for less nose drag, easier and quicker acceleration out of jibes and back on the plane. The flat in the rocker is 90cm long for maximum accelerations in all conditions.
The lowered mast track improves control and makes your rig position more vertical, which helps to hold your board down and maintain mast foot pressure.
On the Formula 177 the Bullet Nose rocker has been lowered by 2 cm this year for improved aerodynamics, more control at high speeds and a smoother transition into planing. Same thickness as the previous model to maintain high wind control.
