THE COURSE RACING POWERHOUSE

The light-wind, course racing powerhouse, with an all-new shape for 2018 and now also Ready to Foil.

Fit the Starboard Race foil and go upwind/downwind faster, more efficiently and at angles you’d never thought possible.

We adjusted the rocker, thickened the rails and extended the length of the cut-aways to improve upwind performance, top-end speed and lift and allow the new Formula 177 to fly around the course.

Our most powerful board, with the widest wind range and the earliest planing performance.



 

228 x 100.5 CM | 177 L

BULLET-NOSE PROFILE

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.

LONGER CUT-AWAYS

The cut-aways are 2 cm longer to improve top-end speed by reducing the wetted surface area and allowing the fin to generate more lift.

WIDE PLANING SURFACE

The planing surface remains wide between the front and back footstraps to increase lift, allow the board to get planing early and reduce drag in light winds.

THICKER RAILS

Thicker, boxier rails throughout improve upwind performance and increase the rider's leverage over the board for more power and lift.
READY TO FOIL

READY TO FOIL

The Formula 177 is Ready to Foil.

The fin box is reinforced to withstand heavier loads associated with foiling. It uses thick, high-density PVC sheets and thick carbon fibre walls.
DECK CONCAVE & CAMEL BUMP

DECK CONCAVE & 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.
BOTTOM SHAPE

BOTTOM SHAPE

The bottom shape is flat Vee tail, merging into a double concave forward.

This brings speed and comfort in all racing conditions.

CARBON REFLEX

Carbon Reflex is our flagship technology, built to be lightest and fastest.

The deck uses the lightest grade of biaxial and uni-directional carbon fibre orientated between 45, 30 and 0 degrees for optimized flex and reflex characteristics.

The bottom of the board uses an even lighter grade of uni-directional carbon fibre from nose to tail, with an extra 45 degree biaxial carbon layer in the tail area for added torsional stiffness.
