Take Off

All-round Foil Board

The Take Off is the Foiler’s board of choice for anything wing, foil surf, foil downwind and more. This is a true all-round foil board that caters for first-time flyers getting started in foiling all the way through to experienced foilers looking to get high and go fast.

This is a completely new concept through and through with an all-new bottom shape, release edges, rocker, volume and outline. You name it, the 2022 Take Off Foil Board has it.

Small Size, High Volume

Our super small size range with high volume means riders can ride smaller boards than ever before. This new range allows for riders to go down in size by around one foot in length. Smaller size, easier riding in a higher performance package.

NEW BOXY RAIL DESIGN

The rails include a chine design and feature a boxy design toward the top at the standing area. This maximizes the width of the board, making for a more stable and comfortable riding experience.

NEW RAIL EDGE RELEASE

The new rail release revolutionises lift-off. As you pump the board the edge releases for smooth take-offs.

NEW CHINE RAILS

The new Chined Rail design ensures a reduced rail area. Especially helpful when turning on the foil, touchdowns and ensures the earliest and easiest take-offs.

NEW ROUND TAIL DESIGN

After testing a variety of tail designs, we found that this round design gives an easy and smooth sensation during lift-off.

NEW TAIL EDGE RELEASE

The sharp tail edge releases when lifting off.

NEW DECK CHANNEL

At the tail, water is funnelled out from the board as quickly as possible.

NEW CONCAVE DECK

The low centre of gravity significantly improves stability when paddling and foiling by bringing you closer to the foil for the best foiling sensation.

NEW FOOTSTRAP INSERTS

The new 18cm distance between the inserts allows you to have a wider footstrap span for better trim and control while foiling since you can micro-adjust your position.

NEW EXTRA LONG FOOTSTRAP

• A new larger foot strap that has a wider spread and it can also be made shorter, using different positions, for those who want the security necessary to launch into the air.

• Our new XL footstraps come with Blue Carbon Pro and Blue Carbon. It can also be purchased aftermarket for Lite Tech.

NEW 12” FOIL BOX

The brand new 12” foil box gives more options to more riders. Move the foil to your preferred liking. Further forward suits riders starting to foil who may need an extra lift. Further back on the box is for high wind conditions, large waves and highly skilled riders. All boards are optimised so the middlebox position gives the best balance point for foilers.

NEW FLAT FOIL AREA

The Flat foil area is designed to keep the foil in the ideal angle at all times, no matter where the foil is placed.

NEW SELF-VENTILATING VALVE

A self-ventilating air valve is available on the board. This valve is self-ventilating so, it should not be touched or removed – otherwise, you are at risk of damaging the valve system.

CARRY HANDLE

The carry handle is moved to the bottom of the board to avoid interfering when foiling, yet still easy to carry.

(4’7″ and 5’2″ come with small handles. The other sizes come with Starboard standard IQ handle)

Blue Carbon

THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED

• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.

• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.

• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.
