Starboard Foil X Wing Wood Sandwich 2021 - WIND AND WING
Hold the wind in your hands with a sail or with a wing, feel the foil below elevate you above the water as you fly across the water silently, powered purely by the wind and waves. 2-in-1, the Foil X Wing series covers wind foil and wing foil all in one board.
Based on the Foil X model, the same features that make the Foil X work for wind foiling make them ideal for wing foiling: the ultra-compact outlines make them easy to control, easy to maneuver and light for take off. The extended flat bottom shapes make them accelerate, gather speed and reach take off speed with less power. The rail cut-aways help you sink the tail to pop up onto the foil and the wide nose and wide tail makes the board stable to stand on. To convert from wind foil to wing foil, simply remove the wind foil from the tail and mount the wing foil to the twin US box tracks. Optionally, you can move footstraps to the wing-foil positions to add control. Two leash inserts allow you to secure the board to your ankle and the wing to the board.
THE FOIL X WING IN DETAILS
THE THREE SIZES
105 Liters / 125 Liters / 145 Liters
105 – the smallest model offers maximum maneuverability and reactivity. 125 – the most popular size for its blend of stability and volume in a compact shape. 145 – added thickness gives this model extra volume and stability while keeping the overall shape ultra-compact. Ideal for heavier riders and progressing riders.
TWO FOIL CONFIGURATIONS
The Deep Tuttle foil box in the tail is for wind foiling. The twin US boxes further forward is for wing foiling.
DEEP TUTTLE BOX PLUG
A plug for the Deep Tuttle Box is supplied. Close the Deep Tuttle Box when wing foiling to keep the glide as efficient as when wing foiling.
LEASH INSERTS FOR WING FOILING
There are two leash inserts, one on the back and another on the front of the board. The back insert is for the leash that goes to your ankle and the front one is for riders who like to secure the wing to the board rather than their wrist.
WIND-FOIL MAST TRACK INSERT
This discreet insert allows you to fit the mast base and attach the sail for wind foiling.
FOOTSTRAPS POSITION ADAPTED TO WINGFOIL
The Foil X Wing has two insert options: strap positions for wind foiling and centred strap positions for wing foiling.
HALF-DECK EVA PAD
The large EVA deck pad covers the centre area of the board for wing foiling and the tail of the boardfor wind foiling.
The new mini carry-handle on the bottom makes it easier to carry board and sail or wing together. The Starboard-exclusive handle design is reduced in size to not affect the glide of the board through water and the hollow internal cavity makes it easy to grip and carry.
The Drake footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably-sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.
