Hello Mario

Did you already try it?

Hi Ola,
I've seen them both. Some have red bottoms, some have white bottoms.
I had to look at one that was perfect in every way, but the lady who bought it thought she was getting a red bottom and refused to accept the white bottom claiming that the board had been repaired or was a 2nd and had been refinished at the factory.
Hey, ALL Starboards are pretty much "handmade/hand finished" so I do not think we will ever see the consistency of truly mass produced/robotic QA inspected products.
Some come out of the factory a little more "perfect in every way" than others, but I've found that the vast majority sail identically.
Perhaps ask Tiesda if he can I.D. (by serial number or date of mfg.) which have white paint on the bottom and which have red paint on the bottom.
Hope this helps,

Hello leysenkr

I tried to sail it today but there wasnt enough wind so i had to change gear to my 130L and 8.0m sail.

But i went to water with for about 1 hour trying to get use to the board....very diferent from my 130L that has 258cm of length and this one has only 240cm...one foot a little more on front and the nose will sink....lol.....but i liked the stability of the board....i could uphaul with some specific tecnic....the board is more sensitive to your foot position.

When i try it in high wind i will feedback.
Thanks for asking.

PS: Your futura is white underneath?

Wrong colours in Futura 101L red
 
Watch out for starboard boards...

I bougth a Red Futura 101 L 2009 that supposed to be red underneath and it came out as white!!!!

Ive made several complaints to my local dealer, where i bought the board, i also filled up 5 times the "service and warrant" form and i had NO RESPONSE from any of them!!!!

So they just want to sell there products, get your money on there pocket and then ignore you when something goes wrong!!!!

What kind of company is this??? Im preparing a formal complaint to the Portugues and European Customer Service because this is not correct!!!!

I fill cheated and ripped off!!!!

Mario
Is the colour the only problem ??? You sound very agrieved ; white bottom ??? Try sunbathing ????

Ola_H 11th September 2009 02:34 AM

Mario, I wrote a bit in some of the other thread concerning this. I'm trying to look things up for you but in the end it will have to go through your dealer anyway. They are the ones that are responsible for selling the board to you and the business arrangement is between them and you. So the most constructive way for you to go about with this is to sort it out with your dealer.

leysenkr 11th September 2009 05:43 PM

I would also feel ripped off if this would happen to me. Is there any other way to distinguish a 2008 from a 2009 board?

But how is it sailing Mario?
