The most technologically advanced freeride shapes. Class-leading top-end speeds across a mega-wide wind range: the sporty, raceDNA Futuras are for freeracers who want to tune and maximize performance. The new 2016 Futuras introduce the new, World’s lightest UltraCore Carbon board technology and come fitted with Drake’s flagship Ready-To-Race slalom fins.
Shapes: From the same design program as the iSonics, the Futuras are as fast in top end speed with a more comfortable sailing position and with more footstrap position options. Rocker: All Futuras use the equivalent size iSonic rockerline, the basis for their top racing performance. Outline: Wide slim boards with a narrower tail for maximum jibing performance. The cutaways further reduce the wetted-area in the tail for the highest top-end speed. Profile: Extra thin with a deep deck concave for maximum control, the lowest centre of gravity and a more efficient vertical sail position. Rail shape: Rounder and thinner than an iSonic, for more carving bite and easier jibing. New Drake Ready to Race Slalom fins: Maximum speed, maximum glide. UltraCore: The World’s lightest windsurf board construction. 10% lighter, 30% stronger, UltraCore allows Starboard designers to make the Futuras lighter yet keep the same strength and toughness as before. A new uni-directional Carbon layer adds extra crispness and rigidity in the planing section of the board, and the new Carbon Innegra rail band creates a rigid frame and increases impact resistance for the occasional knock. Wood Reflex: Australian pine Wood bottom with Full PVC Reflex Biaxial Glass Sandwich deck and Carbon Innegra rail frame. Futura 144 and 154 special: two new extra-wide models, for the best in light wind freerace performance
