All-new shapes with Double Step Cutaways for added release and increased speed.
The Futura concept is built around a wide, thin and compact chassis. Width gives you wind range and power. The thin profile lowers the centre of gravity for added control. The Futura allowz you to save energy, maintain a high average speed for miles and turn the smoothest jibes. Our choice for long distance marathon races.
THE FUTURA IN DETAIL
Dimensions: 225×63, 99 liters
The Futura 63 is based on the successful iSonic 63 and adds more V, more concave and smoother rails to allow you to reach max speed in harder conditions with more confort. It is the perfect tool for long distance races such as the Défi Wind.
Dimensions: 67 (228×67, 106 liters), 71 (228×71, 109 liters), 77 (228×77, 117 liters) & 86 (228×86, 144 liters)
These models have more volume than their predecessors due to new boxier rails. The cutaways are update to the new double-steps like those found in the new iSonics to improve planing and acceleration. The result is extra racing feel and performance without sacrificing comfort. The Futuras are available in Carbon Sandwich and Wood sandwich.
DOUBLE STEP CUTAWAYS
New double-steps improve planing and acceleration.
READY TO FOIL
The Futura 71, 77 and 86 are fitted with Foil-Ready fin boxes.
The rails are rounder and thinner than the iSonic rails for more carving bite and easier jibing.
The Futuras have a more pronounced Vee across the bottom for improved jibing performance, improved comfort through harsh chop and for a more lively ride.
DRAKE SLALOM DW READY TO RACE
The Futuras are fitted with Drake’s flagship Slalom DW Ready to Race fins, top-end production fins that will bring out the best in the Futuras. The Slalom DW model provides huge amounts of speed and acceleration with great jibing abilities.
The Futuras feature 6mm thick footpads in the tail and 4mm in the front. This combination delivers a highly reactive yet comfortable feel while minimizing weight. The thermoformed diamond grooving pattern provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.
DRAKE SLICK FOOTSTRAPS
The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.
Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.
THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION
Ultralight weight at a more affordable price and using more environmentally friendly materials. The bottom is built in full T700 uni-directional ﬂat-woven carbon for maximum stiﬀness while the deck is 60% carbon, alternating between uni-directional and bi-axial carbon layers for optimized ﬂex. The composite sandwich layers include the use of ultra-high density PET and PVC foam.
OUR MOST DURABLE PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY
Designed with the lowest carbon footprint in mind, Starboard’s new Wood Sandwich technology is a full deck and bottom sandwich construction finished with a 0.6mm Australian pine wood bottom. A high-performance PVC sandwich core is used on the entire bottom and the deck’s tail areas for maximum stiffness, maximum durability and minimum weight. The deck is further reinforced with layers of uni-directional carbon and flax fibres for added strength and stiffness. Our most durable tech.
“The Futura is the most comfortable fast board to ride on and at the same time get the feeling of proper speed while flying over the water. You can rail the board like you can on the isonic, but you will feel a bit more comfortable, especially sailing long distances. For an event like Defi wind, long-distance race, or blasting around at your home spot practicing gybes the futura is the easiest board to improve on. It’s just a pure joy to ride! If you rig a sail with or without cambers does not matter, this board can handle it all!”
