Starboard Evolution Foils: Why? And what does it mean?

Starboard Evolution Foils: Why? And what does it mean?

In 2022 Starboard are updating their windsurf foil range by improving the fuselage design. This means only new Evolution front wings will fit on the new Evolution fuselage. However previous windsurf model stabilisers and masts still fit the new Evolution Fuselages.

It is only the front of the Fuselage that is changing so only the front wing needs to change to fit it.


What has changed and been improved?


The Evolution fuselages remove the front bulb to enhance water flow, maximise front wing efficiency and reduce drag. Your foil cuts through water smoother, faster and effortlessly.

The new mini-bridge for the front wing saddle adds stiffness for more flight control

The tail wing saddle and the mast mounting sections remain unchanged, so tail wings and masts from the Original generation and the Plus generation remain compatible.


All front wings have been upgraded to fit the new Evolution fuselages.
