2014 Starboard Line up (FreeRide/FreeRace/Slalom)

New cut out shapes for 2014.  Seems similar to the TT


I'll add my opinions after work+sailing session.  Hopefully the 2014s are a lot more ... "durable" compared to the 2013s...
The 2014 iSonic action video was kind of lackluster; here's the link.  I really liked the one they made for 2012 which can be found here

EDIT: Couldn't find the futura in the list of new boards for 2014 but Starboard released the "Action" video on their youtube page.  Watch it here!



Also so far since the start of the PWA Alacati event, both Bjorn and Antoine have totaled one board so far.  Antoine spun out and crashed into the organizers boat (totaled entire set up)  and Bjorn totaled his born in a crash with Ben van der Steen.  Sarah-Quita Offringa is doing pretty darn good in her slalom heats!  Should be noted though that Lena Erdil, Delphine Cousin, Marion Mortefon and Valerie Arrighetti were eliminated for early starts.

1 Antoine Albeau F-192

Will add more later tonight.  Winds picking up!
