The Futura are Starboard’s freerace boards. Freerace boards are designed to go extremely fast, like slalom boards, but with more user-friendliness and more comfort. They are the sports cars of windsurfing.
When it was first introduced in 2008, Starboard’s Futuras revolutionary design redefined the freerace category: its 15% thinner profile and its wider outline, inspired by the evolution of modern slalom boards, offered the casual freerider a board that was very stable at low speed yet extremely fast and powerful throughout an incredibly wide wind range. On top of these benefits, the thinner shape made for better jibing and more control. It was a win-win design leap forwards.
For 2015, all Futuras have been upgraded once more, to more efficient wider, slimmer shapes. The sizing denominations have been adjusted accordingly: 90, 97, 104, 114, 124, 134. With improving control of these new shapes, larger widths can be handled in a wider wind range, thus Starboard introduces two new larger sizes: the Futuras144 and 154.
The Futuras are Starboard’s freerace boards. The freerace category sits between the freeride and slalom categories. Freeriders are more comfortable, easier to glide on to the plane and are more plug-n-play, needing little tuning or skill level from its rider to deliver its best. In comparison, the Futuras are faster and can cover a wider wind range – but it will need some skill level and tuning know-how to get the most out of.
Compared to slalom boards, the Futuras are more comfortable and more accessible. Their footstrap positions are not as far out-board. On the other hand, Starboard’s slalom boards, the iSonics, will have more power and a higher average speed, with quicker acceleration, that ultimately make them faster than the Futuras.
