Starboard Foil – Waterman Set 2021
For wind, wing and wave foiling
The Waterman Set is based on the SuperCruiser and includes parts that converts it into a wing and wave foil (included parts listed down below)
Starboards all-time number #1 selling foil. Maneuverable, smooth and super fun, it’s also our easiest foil ever. The 1700cm² front wing gives the sensation of floating on air and allows you to take-off before reaching planing speeds. The long 87cm fuselage offers extra stability and power. Choose this foil if you want to foil in the lightest winds, make foil-jibes and 360s as easy as possible and foil with smaller sails.
Available in Carbon and Aluminium
“Its acceleration is creamy smooth. Simply stand up over the board and let the foil do the work. It breathes confidence and oozes the essence of freeride foiling, being both eminently accessible and enjoyable.
Fitting the SuperCruiser into various boards and setups, the ability to alter the angle of the tail wing and therefore the longitudinal pitch of the board is a real bonus, tweaking and fine-tuning the setup so that it is easy to establish the right balance.
Cruising at a respectable speed it is directionally very stable and predictable, providing plenty of reaching comfort for covering distances effortlessly.”
The SuperCruiser uses the sleeve system for making it easy to slide the wing on and off. The front wing slides over the fuselage and locks in place via four countersunk M6 Torx bolts. The threads are anodized and reinforced with stainless steel helicoils for strength and corrosion resistance.
Will this fuselage work with other starboard wings and masts?
The SuperCruiser’s fuselage is compatible with all masts from Starboard Foils and all tail wings from the Wing and Wave collection. The only front wing technically compatible with the SuperCruiser is the Wave 1700 for SuperCruiser. See the Custom Shop section below for exceptions. Wings that use the saddle system are not compatible.
QUICK LOCK HD
The front wing slides over the fuselage and locks in place with a quick half-turn of the pressure bolt. The new HD upgrade has an extra hole for a second bolt that gives additional security for heavy duty use.
Will this front wing work with other fuselages?
Quick Lock HD front wings fit both Quick Lock HD fuselages and Quick Lock fuselages. They won’t work with Wind Foil fuselages that use the saddle system.
TAIL WING FITTING SYSTEM
The tail wing sits on an adjustable rocker saddle. Set the tail wing to your desired angle then tighten the two bolts to lock it in.
MORE LIFT, NEUTRAL OR MORE SPEED?
TRIMMING YOUR TAIL WING
As a rule of thumb, more angle gives more lift; less angle gives more speed.
The ideal trim angle is the one that lets you ride with weight distributed equally between your front and back legs.
Once you’ve trimmed the tail wing angle to your liking, simply tighten the two bolts.
AVAILABLE IN CARBON AND ALUMINIUM
The SuperCruiser Carbon is supplied with the Carbon 85cm mast. It is built with forty layers of pre-preg high-modulus uni-axial and bi-axial Toray carbon, hydraulically pressed, heated and fused into one monolithic mast of incredible stiffness. The shape of the mast has also been optimized for flexural and torsional stiffness. Computer-simulated analysis shows the Starboard mast, by virtue of its shape alone, is already up to 52% stiffer than a traditional mast.
The SuperCruiser Aluminium is supplied with the Aluminium V5 85cm mast. It is built from an extrusion of 6061 aluminium, a grade of aluminium that we selected for its strength, weight and superior corrosion resistance. The V5 is extra-strong and extra stiff, making it suitable for windsurf foiling. Three oversized I beam stringers and five 12mm stainless steel bolts carry the vertical loads. It is even stronger and stiffer than the Aluminium V7 masts used for wing and wave foils.
Maneuverable, smooth and super fun, it’s also our easiest foil ever. The 1700cm2 front wing gives the sensation of floating on air and allows you to take-off before reaching planing speed.
Choose this foil if you want to foil in the lightest winds, make foil-jibes and 360s as easy as possible and foil with smaller sails.
