Slalom foiling is the big development within wind foiling. Starboard has a range of carbon slalom foil boards that are optimized for full speed half wind and down wind foiling. In the PWA you can no longer do without a slalom foil set. Up to about 24 knots of wind, the slalom wind foil board is unbeatable. The Starboard X-15 Foil 85 Starlite Carbon foilboards is a budget friendly racing cannon.

 

Starboard X-15 Foil Slalom Starlite Carbon strong and budget friendly

The racing foilboards, such as the IQfoil 95, have been developed to have as much lift as possible, so that you can foil as high as possible upwind or as deep as possible down wind. Half wind foiling is not the easiest course. The Starboard X-15 Foil slalom boards are designed to foil half wind or down wind as quickly as possible with less effort.

The mast track and footband position and the X-15 slalom foil boards are optimized for slalom foiling, so you have good control with both low wind and wind. The back of the Starboard X-15 is as wide as the widest point of the board.

Compared to the previous model, the deck is almost flat and the bottom has also become flatter. Due to the higher speeds of slalom foiling, aerodynamics are very important. To prevent you from getting a catapult with a nose drop, the nose of the board is equipped with an extreme V-shape, so that when touching down the board immediately bounces off the water into the air.

You have the best performance if you choose a foilset up with front wings that have a surface area of up to 750cm2 or smaller with a small high aspect back wing.

With this set up, do not expect that you can already wind foil with 7 to 8 knots.

Why choose the Starboard X-15 Starlite Carbon?

The Starboard X-15 Starlite Carbon is made of a bullit proof material (Starlite) that is not only a lot stronger than the X-15 carbon version, but also a lot cheaper. The bottom is made of carbon to keep the total weight as low as possible.

The Starboard X-15 Starlite Carbon is as heavy as the IQfoil 85 which we know is still a great weight to go really hard (the youth goes over 50 km / h on the IQfoil 85!).

When you get on the foil you notice that the board needs a little more wind. An advantage is that precisely because of the slightly higher weight, the board is slightly more stable for wind foiling.
