THE WORLD’S MOST STABLE WINDSURF BOARD

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

THE START AT A GLANCE

Popular with windsurfing schools as the first board to teach beginners on: LEARN IN 60 MINUTES.

With its exceptional stability, there is no easier board to learn windsurfing on. The contour deck allows inboard footstraps to be reached easily and in total comfort.

The Start is available in the Rhino construction, built with one mission in mind: to make them as durable as possible for schools – the place where boards are used every day for years.

THE START IN DETAIL

CONTOURED DECK SHAPE

With the contoured deck shape, the board is easy to get into the footstraps. It’s 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.

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.

OUTLINE PROMOTES LIGHT WIND EFFICIENCY

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.

RETRACTABLE DAGGERBOARD & DRAKE SHALLOW FIN

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.

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. Cut-aways gives the board better speed while planing as well as earlier take off.

DURABLE EVA DECK FOR COMFORT / SINGLE STRAP POSITIONS

The Start Rhino is finished with a durable, grippy and textured deck that is made from high density thermoformed EVA.  We’ve built in just one row of footstraps, the intermediate setting which is ideal for progressing riders, to keep things simple.

RHINO CONSTRUCTION

AS TOUGH AS IT GETS

The Start are built in one construction with one mission in mind: to make them as durable as possible for schools and centres. The entire board is wrapped in a thick, tough thermoplastic polymer ABS skin (not to be confused with ASA), with a double wrap around the rails.
