100% PLANING ONE DESIGN

For one-design racing, Starboard offers two racing packages for clubs and windsurfers around the world: the Slalom One and the Formula One.

The shape of the Slalom One comes from the acclaimed iSonic 110 and remains unchanged following the Slalom One windsurfing two-year cycle.

The Formula One shape is actually the 2015 Formula 167, a World Champion shape with Gonzalo Costa Hoevel. It receives updated graphics for 2018 and a reinforced fin box, making it ‘Ready to Foil’.

Both boards are available in Starboard’s exclusive 3DX construction, with complete rig packages, going from 6.5m² to 11.0m².



 

Formula One | Slalom One

SLALOM ONE

The outline of the Slalom One is wide between the footstraps for early and easy planing. However the planing surface behind the back foot is narrow for reduced drag and faster speeds.

PROFILE

The Slalom One uses the iSonics' 'low-nose' concept for reduced drag and added control.

The profile is thin for wind range, the deck concave provides control, a more vertical sailing position while closing the gap between the sail and the deck of the board.

CUT-AWAYS & EXTENSIONS

Tail winger and side cuts minimize the tail area for maximum efficiency. They improve water release for sharper accelerations, better performance through wind lulls and and higher top speeds.

Heel extensions allow the Slalom One to be powerful yet ergonomic under the feet with a narrow tail.
SLALOM DW FINS

SLALOM DW FINS

The Slalom One is delivered with not one but two high performance slalom fins by Drake for maximum wind range.

A Slalom DW 38 Ready to Race for high winds and a Slalom DW 42 Ready to Race for light winds.

FORMULA ONE

The Formula One has a 84.6 cm wide tail for a balance of power, balance and versatility in all wind conditions.

It is delivered with a high performance Drake Race 70 Ready to Race fin that generates massive power for light wind performance.

TAIL & CUT-AWAYS

Cut-away shapes with deep side cuts reduce the wetted area, improve acceleration onto the plane, upwind tracking, top end speed and allow for a freer ride.

PROFILE

The Formula One uses our Bullet Nose design with a low angle of attack for less nose drag, easier and quicker acceleration out of jibes and back on the plane.

The flat in the rocker is 90cm long for maximum accelerations in all conditions.

The lowered mast track improves control and makes your rig position more vertical, which helps to hold your board down and maintain mast foot pressure.
READY TO FOIL

READY TO FOIL

The Formula One 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.

It is delivered with a high performance Drake Race 70 Ready to Race fin that generates massive power for light wind performance.

DRAKE ULTRALIGHT FOOTSTRAPS

The Slalom One and Formula are fitted with the next iteration of Drake UltraLight footstraps.

These hydrophobic footstraps weigh 89 grams dry, saving up to 242 grams dry and 676 grams when wet.

Two layers of Kevlar X-Ply monofilm replace the internal plastic strip to keep the footstrap comfortable, light and flexible but eradicate any stretch.

3DX

The Formula One and Slalom are available in our 3DX construction.

3DX stands for three dimensional biaxial glass microsandwich construction. Both deck and bottom are wrapped in 45 degree biaxial glass fiber wetted out with an expanding foam epoxy cured under high pressure.

The biaxial glass gives a crisp, stiff feel with flex for choppy conditions. The foam epoxy creates a 2mm skin thickness for a microsandwich effect: tough and strong.

SLALOM AND FORMULA ONE RIGS

Sails are available in 6.5m², 7.5m², 8.5m², 9.5m² and 11.0m².

The Formula One 9.5m² and 11.0m² are three-cam sails for Formula racing. The Slalom One 6.5m², 7.5m² and 8.5m² are twin-cam, more suited to slalom racing.

Racing profile with short boom lengths to offer higher performance on aluminum booms. Improved reinforcements on the foot of the Formula One sails for added durability.
