Starboard Futura 144

Jun 18, 2009

V: 144  L:  246 W: 79
Starboard’s Futura is a board at the forefront of ride and design. Matching it with one of today’s short-boomed and lower drafted sails and a proper modern sailing stance makes for a responsive ride that progressing sailors will enjoy for years. Its width upfront helps power an efficient sail onto a plane easily while remaining very stable. Riders learning to use the footstraps will instinctively find their feet wanting to be positioned in the middle setting, which when combined with a number-7 looking body position will keep the board’s rounded outline from wandering. Eventually this same hips-in stance will allow you to get it to really break free with the straps in the furthest outboard setting. The curvy outline also asks for a more modern jibing technique. You don’t need to bring your weight nearly as far forward to engage the rail, which lowers the commitment level needed upon entry. star-board.com
