Fin Boxes




Tuttle Box: the strongest and most reliable fin box system. Two bolts are used for a more secure fitting. Boards fitted with a Deep Tuttle fin box can use both normal and deep tuttle fins, allowing the board to use a wider range of fin sizes.

The Slot box is designed to be extra light, weighing 70% lighter than a US box. It has 3cm of adjustment room and current US based fins can be cut to fit. The custom-manufactured bolts fit the same screwdriver as your footstraps, making them effective against sand, keeping the system simple and hassle-free.

"Quad boards fitted with Slot Boxes weighed, on average, 640g lighter than those using conventional boxes (Boards magazine 75 litre wave boards test, Dec 2010"

New for 2014: Starboard's exclusive 4th generation Slot Box with oversized brass insert fittings for a stronger fit.

The new tool-free Clipperbox system: a simple clipping daggerboard system that is smooth and easy to operate. New feature: remove and fit the daggerboard by simply pulling it out and pushing it back in. Sand proof and reliable. Featured on the GO Windsurfer and the WindSUPs.




Screws and Fittings




Offset Footstrap washer:
Extra thick for a firmer grip without bending under pressure. Offset hole: turn the washer 180o and your straps will be tighter by 2.5mm.

7x32mm Footstrap Screws:
Starboard's extra wide footstrap screws increase the overall strength of this connection point. The screws won't snap nor rip out.

K9 Anti-twist plugs:
sandwiched between the board and the strap, the K9 plug has four canine teeth that sink into the strap to provide a mechanical anti-twist effect. No twisting means better control, better feel and better safety. On the most heavy-duty boards, the K9 system is replaced with double-screw strap inserts for the back strap: no twist and super strong.

One screw fits all:
air-valves, tuttle boxes, Slot box, US box, footstraps: a single screw driver fits them all. Simple
