New Formula 2009
 
The 2009 Formula board is slighty changed a bit I have seen. Looks like it rocks now, and racers have more to choose. First, it was the F2 Z to beat, but now the Starboard also rides very loose and controlable.

Can Starboard explain a bit to the visitors of this forum, what they have changed about the board? It should not be much, while you can only change a certain amount on a board during the season (max 8 % I thought?)

Are you sure what you tell??? As I know the Formula 162 must be unchanged for 2 years, then there is no changes to August 1st 2009 ( I'm waiting for this new information). As I know the only change is now are 2 versions ( Std Wood Formula 162 and Formula 162 " FOD". The only difference is in the extra paint in the deck.

I think he meant to say 2010 formula board, that may be unveiled in august.

i am sure it is 2010. Starboard always play to the rules, and are solid supporters of formula. FW gives the best opportunity to race in all wind conditions, with the least amount of equipment, and .... sorry , i digress

There's another difference betwen the standard 162 and the OD 162. The standard 162 comes with a Drake R19 fin, and the OD with a Deboichet R20.

But the board is the same..... design mould. That is the important thing with the Formula rules. The design of the board need to be the same. About Fin's are free, you can use the finyou want, if the fin are no longer than 70 cm.

The 162 never came with the R20. They kept the R19 in production.

iSonic and Formula boards for 2010 will not include fins at all. You have to buy your own.

Remi 9th August 2009 07:48 AM

Hi All,

I confirm that the F162 was never deliver with a Drake R20

It was deliver with the FOD package a Deboichet R20 for ISAF proposal to became Olympic only.

The new HWR and LWR will be deliver with out fins, and for your information all fins who was working great on the F160 and F161 will be great on this boards.

All the best
