Starboard GT-R Aluminium Plus Foil
The Starboard Foil GT-R aluminum plus foil (model 2021) sits between the Starboard Freeride and Starboard Race. With this model, the mast is 85 cm long. The Starboard GT-R aluminium plus Foil gives less lift than the Race and is ideal for the lighter speed oriented windfoilers and this foil also works very well under narrower (windfoil) boards. We think this windfoil is closer to the race than to the freeride.
This is a performance foil and ensures that you fly around 9 knots already and an experienced windfoil can foil up to at least 20 knots with this. The large wings and its shape contribute to this and provide more stability and easier ‘take off’ with little wind. The front wing has an area of 800 cm2 and the back wing 330 cm2. The aluminum fuselage is 95 cm long. This wind foil is slightly less high on the wind and slightly less spacious than the Race foil. But differences are quite small. Compared to the Starboard GT-R Carbon, the mast is a bit wider, which reduces the end speed. However, this doesn’t make much difference with the version with the carbon mast. Although this is a performance wind foil, we also find him suitable for the ‘sporty’ novice wind foiler.
Trimable back wing
With this fuselage you get 6 ‘spacers’ delivered to trim the angle of the rear wing. The recommended angle is -1.5 degrees or -2.0 degrees. Because the front wing is further forward than with the regular fuselage, this fuselage provides much more lift.
Our findings on the Starboard GT-R Aluminum Plus Foil:
+ Lift early by longer fuselage and slightly more stable by shorter mast and suitable for slightly less deep water
+ A fast wind foil, only fractionally slower than the carbon version
+ Flying around 9 knots
+ Very good construction
+ For both experienced and novice wind foiler
– No storage bag is included
