Take Off

High Performance Freestyle/wave Foil Boards





The Take Off has seen great success and enthusiasm, particularly from our riders in wing freestyle competitions, with Dream Team riders using our latest and smallest Take Off models in a range of events.


The 2024 Take Off has been completely redesigned to be a more performance-oriented freestyle wing foil model. A new size range with slightly longer but narrower sizes has allowed us to achieve faster Take Offs and more even flying when at speed. The streamline shape includes a thin nose for faster and more balanced flying, and the cutaway tail creates a narrow pin at the tip for reduced drag in the air and water. The bottom shape features sharp rails with a flat midsection for predictability and recovery in touchdowns from any angle.


The new Take Off range suits intermediate to advanced riders, with sizes from 5’3″ x 25.5″ and above catering for a range of foiling with wing and SUP foiling, and sizes from 5’0″ x 24.5″ down to 4’0″ x 18.5″ perfect for high-performance wing and foil surfing. The larger 7’0″ x 31″ and 6’3″ x 28″ are designed for heavier riders wanting to take their winging or SUP Foiling to new heights.





The longer and narrower design gives the Take Off faster liftoff and better aerodynamics for a smoother flight. Featuring a pulled in nose and tail outline with reduced profile thickness.


Performance-focused, more manoeuvrable in turns, and faster when flying.


The rocker is fine tuned for stable flight while being very forgiving when touching down. The rocker is optimized for the best control over the foil without needing to shim your foil.


For the best possible connection, the standing area recess gives a direct connection to the foil. Smaller models are dug out even further for the best possible control.


The smooth release with sharp rail edges and the flat bottom give instant takeoff and are more predictable when touching down.


The cutaway forms a pin tail for better release in takeoff and less resistance when touching down.


The new brushed deck pad is less abrasive on the knees while offering comfort and grip. The Take Off also features a kick pad for wave surfing.


• Designed for the best comfort and performance in wingboarding, utilising the best Yulex neoprene construction in the industry to deliver a soft and secure footstrap.

• With a 60 degree angle, the new footstrap is designed to perfectly mould to the shape of your foot when inserted in our range of foil boards.

• Multiple footstrap screw holes are built into the reinforced yulex, giving riders the adjustability to angle the footstrap in their preferred riding position and angle.


Reduces paper waste while protecting your board from dust, scratches, and UV damage. Made with stretchable polyester, it fits various board shapes. Ensure optimal board maintenance with the iconic blue Board Sock, featuring a secure drawstring closure.

• 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.

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




• Extra rigidity with the introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail/ nose reinforcements.
• Australian pine on the standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity in the most critical area.
• All inserts have added high-density foam reinforcements.

For every board Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation.

Each tree absorbs 673kg of CO2 during its first 25 years.

50% of absorption goes towards offsetting this board & 50% is secured as carbon credits to fund livelihood projects in Myanmar.

The average emission from a Starboard board is 100 kg CO2.

By planting 3 trees per board we offset this 10 x over.

The Take Off has an average carbon footprint of 130.6 kg per board.

1.4 kg of trash is collected per board by starboard pop crews at beaches in Thailand & Myanmar.

Globally, an individual is responsible for 1.4 kg of plastic reaching the ocean every year.

Starboard balances this amount for our customers.

The Take Off has an average plastic content of 11.8 kg per board.
