THE FOIL FREERIDE AT A GLANCE
Starboard’s Foil Freerides have become our best-selling boards of the year. What makes them so popular? Their formula is simple: they are designed to fly at maximum reaching speeds with minimum fuss, emphasising performance and foil jibe with speed and total control. What’s more do you really need? Available in two sizes: 125 and 150 liters.
These second generation performance freeride foil boards have extra comfortable tail shapes that give a power and control to the rider’s feet. Wider tails and a thin profile adds stability during flight and allows you to pilot the board with power and precision. The wide nose acts like a wing giving maximum lift, speed and stability during flight.
IMPROVED VOLUME DISTRIBUTION AND REDUCED SWING WEIGHT
Shorter noses and a mast track placed further back improve maneuverability and promote easy take off. It also reduces swing weight for a lighter, floating sensation in flight. Improved volume distribution, thin profiles and flat decks enhance stability and control during flight and when tacking and uphauling. The Foil Freeride 125 and 150 are available in Starlite and Wood Sandwich.
ADDITIONAL DESIGN FEATURES
Combined with the cutaways, the extra long flat and the compact outlines promote quick planing and early take-off. Landings and relaunches are effortless due to the ample nose kick while the hard rail edges along the entire perimeter of the board allows it to ricochet off the water during touchdowns, helping you regain flight or finish your foil jibe with minimal speed loss.

EXTRA THIN PADS
There are less impacts to absorb when foiling. In fact, there are none. So we’ve designed the pads to be extra thin for added control and kept the diamond grooves for the perfect grip.
The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.
