Starboard comes this year with a whole range of wing foils. The design of the wing foils is slightly different than we know from the Starboard wind foils. You put together o.b.v. a mast set and a wing set the foil itself. How exactly does that work and what do you need? Below we explain how to compose the Starboard wing foils.
Starboard Wing Foils mix and match
Starboard does not offer ready-made wingfoils. You put them together a-la-carte yourself o.b a number of parts. Of course, you can replace and/or upgrade parts later. That’s still possible. The basics are simple:
Mast-set + Wing set = Wing foil
A mast set of the Starboard wing foils consists of a mast (aluminum or carbon) with a fixed topplate and a quick lock fuselage. You can buy these as a whole and if you have mounted the quick lock fuselage on the mast for the 1st time, you can also have it mounted.
At the quick lock fuselage.m you can easily mount the wing set with the patented quick lock system. This consists of a front wing, back wing and tail piece. On the back wing is a ‘tail piece’ (see this as part of the fuselage) which is attached to the back of the quick lock fuselage. Thanks to the Quik-Lock Fuselage, you have far fewer bolts to tighten and you can screw the foil together in six seconds! Then you have to use two torxes at the same time :),but also with one tool you can quickly put the foil together.
Which mast set and wing foil set suit you best depends (among other things) on your weight, budget and wingfoil ambition. Ask yourself in advance what you want to do (freeride / speed / freestyle) and with what conditions you want to sail. Also check out our wing foil guide to find out more about what type of wingfoiler you are.

Top plate vs. deep tuttle
Within wing foiling, top plates are mainly used to attach the foil to the board. Do you already have a wind foil with deep tuttle, or do you also want to use the foil mast for wing foiling? Then.m you can convert a deep tuttle to a top plate with a top plate adapter. Please note that the mast sets sold with top plate are not compatible with deep tuttle connections.
