View Full Version : Kode 86 2011 - lenght and width (spec on board vs. spec on website))

12th November 2010, 01:25 PM

yesterday I've got 2011 Kode 86l wood carbon and noticed that the spec regarding lenght and width on board differ from those on the Starboard site.

spec on the board: 233cm x 58cm
spec on the website: 237 cm x 58,5cm

Did anybody else notice this??

Probably there is a mistake on the wb site or the spec sizes are still from 2010......

Hi Unregistered,

This is right, the first board was deliver with the wrong sticker.

Correct size are : 237 cm x 58,5cm

This is fix now

Hope this doesn't disturb when you ride the board :)

All the best

Would be kind of nice that Starboard would notice their suppliers about that.

Not that when you ask them, they know absolutley nothing about it.....

I agree with others, Kode 86 is an awesome board.
Used with different fins a great do-it-all machine for early planning, super speed, radical jibes, lively sailing on moderate waves, easy jumping AND great comfort thanks to the new footstraps and pads. wow.

My weight is 85 kg.
I tried it with MFC Freewave 28cm and 6.2 sqm as well as with the original drake freewave fin and 5.3 sqm.

My question: Do I need another fin for 4.5 sqm 3.7 sqm sailing?

Thank you.
