WORLD'S MOST STABLE BOARD

Popular with windsurfing schools as the first board to teach beginners on.

Color-coded deck gives the rider an intuitive guide for how to position his feet and angle the sail when up-hauling, getting going or planing. The colors also make it easier for instructors to show where the student should place their feet.

The combination of the color-coded deck with its exceptional stability makes the Start the easiest board to learn windsurfing on.

For 2018, the EVA deck is reinforced with a thermo-formed, high-density rail band that extends to the nose and deck of the board.

The Start are available in M and L size, in our extremely tough and durable ArmourTech construction, for maximum durability and value.

OUTLINE

Feature-packed with smart ideas and offering the widest shape in the entry-level segment, the Starts make learning to windsurf and planing in the footstraps easier than ever.

The Starts are 285 cm long to give these ultra-stable boards extra-glide and longitudinal traction in light winds.

ROCKERLINE

With the longer length, the rockerline can be flattened which also allows the board to transition very gradually into planing mode – smoothly and easily, without the need to overcome an overwhelming power surge.

FULL EVA DECK with HD RAILS

The soft, full EVA deck is comfortable for your feet, knees and elbows. You get the grip without the rashes or the cuts.

Integrated nose protector helps to protect the board against nose impacts from the mast.

New thermo-formed, high-density EVA rail band for more durability.

CONTOURED & COLOR-CODED DECK

The contoured deck shape makes it easy to feel when your feet are in the correct position.

It also helps to keep the rider close to the board’s centre line: more stability, easier to progress and easier to learn planing windsurfing.

The color coded deck provides a visual aid, helping the rider get in the right position when uphauling or moving forward.

EXTRA-WIDE TAIL

The Start’s tail is wider than any other entry-level board. This allows it to get planing earlier, at lower speeds and requiring less power.

CLIPPERBOX DAGGERBOARD

Fitted with Starboard’s Clipperbox system with replaceable and ultra durable lips and a new daggerboard with integrated handle for carrying the board under-arm.

They come with a Drake Shallow 41 fin.

This compact fin delivers as much power and directional traction as possible in the shortest size. The ideal fin for learning.

ULTRA-DURABLE RUBBER LIPS

The daggerboard itself is extra soft in the tip for more performance and lift. Also features ultra-durable rubber lips that can be replaced easily without tools.

ARMOUR TECH

The Starts are available in our extremely tough and durable ArmourTech construction, for maximum durability and value.

This technology uses layers of three dimensional glass mat wetted out with an expanding epoxy resin system that creates volume within the skin as it cures under pressure and adds an ASA skin shell on top.
