Starboard Foil X 2021 board - A compact Wind Foiling board for Freefoiling excitement!
The Foil X was introduced in 2020 and was an instant hit. New size offering of the 125 will prove to added to the popularity of this design. New cutaways on the 2021 models that will enhance the early foiling potential and maneuverability of these boards. Focus of these compact foil board designs is to foil with smaller sails to get foiling – and allow for more aggressive transitional turning and riding styles. Fly through foil jibes and 360s with ease. The new cutaways run down the rails to reduce tail volume to allow the rider to sink the tail and pop up onto the foil. An adjusted nose rockerline make the boards more forgiving when touching down mid-jibe by helping you bounce straight back up. The new mini carrry-handle on the bottom makes it easier to carry board and sail together. New centered footstrap positions unlock freestyle and jumping abilities on 105 and 125 sizes.
105 - Starboards most maneuverable and playful board ever, both radical and surprisingly user-friendly. Fly downwind, let your sail out and even transition into surf foiling. The next step in foiling for those in the know. Ultra-compact, yet friendly to uphaul thanks to its wide outline and super-thick nose. The new 2021 model is 3cm longer and 1cm wider to add a touch more forgiveness.
125 = Starboard's intermediate board of the range. It combines an easy ride with more technical possibilities, offering the perfect match for a rider who wants to increase their foiling skills.The 67cm width keeps it stable before take off. The long flat bottom, deep rail cutaways and ultra compact outline then makes it quick to pop out of the water and take off. The reduced volume and thinner profile brings a new sensation of freedom when flying in the air. The middle back footstrap enables jumps and your first 360s. Freestyle is now accessible to intermediate level foilers. A masterclass.
145 = With its compact outline, the X 145 is hyper maneuverable and reactive. Yet, with plenty of volume, even progressing windsurfers stepping off a GO will be ready for the X 145. The new rail cutaways will help you take off from just 6 knots of wind and the extended, more curved nose will make it more forgiving when touching down.
On the foil side, riders can choose between lifty, maneuverable foils like the Starboard Foil SuperCruiser or the faster, high performance foils like the GT-R Plus. The SuperCruiser offers early take-off, awesome maneuverability and floating foil jibes. The GT-R offers higher top speeds and faster acceleration.

The deck is further reinforced with layers of uni-directional carbon and flax fibres for added strength and stiffness. Our most durable performance technology.
STAR LITE - Available in the Starlite technology, crisp and sharp and adds the durability of a tank. It uses 0.6mm Australian pine wood with glass fibres and a Carbon-Innegra perimeter rail band to combine premium technology and a quality finish in a value package.
Team Rider Steven Van Broeckhoven - Freestyle PWA Champion:
Foil x is just pure fun! Its ideal for cruising around, jumps and freestyle. My favorite size is the FoilX 105, it’s easy to get it flying early and it feels very free and easy to make any kind of moves! What I like most about it is how compact it is while still having enough volume and a comfortable deck which give a lot of control flying and especially during the jibes. The Foil X is my go to board for foil freestyle.
