THE iSONICS ARE THE COMPLETE SPEED SLALOM SOLUTIONS. FROM 46.5CM WIDE TO 96CM WIDE, THE 9 MODEL iSONICS RANGE IS ALL ABOUT MAXIMUM SPEED WITH A WIDE WIND RANGE THROUGH MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY.

Starboard iSonic 101 2007
Planchemag France, November 2006


Speed special: the new iSonic 50's remarkably unique speed shape has clocked incredible speeds at lower winds than its rivals. Again based on maximum efficiency principles, the squared-out tail shape is wider than the norm yet the max width at 46.5cm is narrower. This unique approach to speed board design gives a lower and therefore more efficient angle of attack to the wetted surface area, as well as more power, more tail stability and control. Tail side-cuts with wingers improve release and fin drive.

Slalom special: the 87, 94, 101, 111, 122 and 133 models are designed for slalom racing. The new 2007 designs feature wider tails to increase the aspect ratio of the wetted surface area and reduce the surface's angle of attack with the water: efficiency is increased, top speed is higher, tail stability and fin control is improved. The tail volume was reduced on all models (except the 87), and new winger side-cuts on the 101, 111, 122 models improve release and fin drive further.

Lightwind special: the iSonic 145 and 155 are designed for maximum speeds in lightwinds together with a massive wind range and powerful upwind performance. Capable of handling the biggest sails, they are quick to get onto the plane and offer high levels of response thanks to very compact outlines. Multiple footstrap inserts offer various tuning options, including an extra-accessible third row.
