Starboard Kode Windsurfing Board
Starboard Kode Windsurfing Board - We use it - We love it!
Nine designers and two years intense R&D: Boujmaa Guilloul, Scott McKercher, Kevin Pritchard, Tiesda You, Svein Rasmussen, Jim Drake, Sven Akerboom and freestyle specialists Taty Frans and Kiri Thode. An unprecedented number of riders and designers to shape, test, tweak and refine.Five countries across four continents: Australia, Vietnam, Maui USA, Thailand and Gran Canaria Spain. The ultimate wave-freestyle collection. Available in WoodCarbon, Wood and Technora. Available in eight sizes: 68, 74, 80, 86, 94, 102, 112, 122.
Speed and aggressiveness with maximum maneuvering versatility for wave riding, freestyling or simply jibing. Old school freestyle, new school freestyle, driven bottom turns, tight cut-backs, sideshore surf, onshore surf, back foot jibes or front foot jibes - the Kodes have a style fit for aggressive riders hungry for speed and power in all conditions.
Rockerline: Fast rockerlines for speed, early planing and acceleration. A subtle tail-kick release edge provides free-flying rides and a smooth carving nature in tight turns.
Vee: all Kodes feature the spiraling vee concept that creates more vee in the front of the board than in the tail. This spiraling vee delivers front foot carving power and a forgiving nature in rotational freestyle moves.
Rails: all Kodes have a rail shape with a harder release edge and a lower apex. This provides a more aggressive and sharper rail bite with more speed and acceleration.
Outlines: all Kodes follow a compact outline concept to provide a quick and responsive ride. Individually adapted to fit each size, the largest Kodes have the most rounded outlines and the smallest Kodes have the straightest outlines.
Special features on the Kode 68, 74, 80: Heel bumpers; double insert screws for the back foot; extra double PVC stringer reinforcements on the WoodCarbon models. Dur-X construction on the Wood and Technora models.
Special features on the Kode 86, 94, 102: No heel bumpers for a lighter and more direct feel; Inboard and outboard insert position options.
Special features on the Kode 112, 122: Enlarged cut-aways and new fins for more speed, quicker accelerations and improved jibing performance. No heel bumpers for a lighter and more direct feel; Inboard and outboard insert position options.
Available in WoodCarbon, Wood and Technora:
The World's lightest boards? WoodCarbon - the combination of a wood spine and ultralight carbon: a new composite material matrix that sets a new benchmark. The technology is the first board construction in the World to utilize an ultralight carbon fibre that is flat-weaved for total mechanical efficiency. The unidirectional flat-weave fibre generates equal tensile strength as biaxial or woven carbon fibre, yet at half the specific weight. A layer of 0.6 Australian pine wood runs along the spine of the board to provide rigidity, additional structural integrity and to increase strength in the most solicited areas of the board. The Kode 68, 74, 80 and 86 WoodCarbon use biaxial flat-weave carbon layers and additional PVC stringers on the bottom for extra strength.
The Wood and Technora versions continue with the same specifications as 2008, constructions that have been refined since 2000 to provide the industry's leading warranty figures and the most reliable lightweight boards to date. The Kode 68, 74 and 80 are built to Dur-X standards: double sandwich construction, oversized reinforcements and on the Wood Dur-X models, there is a full 0.6mm wood skin (deck and bottom) for maximum rigidity, strength and dynamic shape integrity.
