The Q69 indeed has a swallow tail. I shaped this board with the swallow and after some team sailors tried it and liked it a lot, it was decided it would become the 2011 69 liter production board.

Thanks you and (a sort of) goodbye

As of 1/1 2011, I'm formally no longer associated with Starboard. I'm off to work on another project.

I want to thank all the people at Starboard for all the support over the years and I also...

Yeah, some have noticed the box in the 2011 Atom so things might change. It's always a tradeoff though. I don't reckon the strength of the US box is the real problem and in any case people do in fact...

Well, it doesn't follow by logic, but to some degree, yes. But it's not a totally straightforward relationship. I reckon you have to do some serious calculations to really know the details, but...

So you were planing along at good speed but had spin outs now and then? The problem was not that the board spun out on you while trying to gain speed?. In the former case the problem is normally not...

Hi Frédéric

First, regarding a thruster conversion, it would not be my first choice. The shape was a single before and I know there are some people who liked their (convertible) quads run as...

To summarize: when sailing the board upwind, concentrate of keeping it flat, fast and flying and don't try so hard to push it upwind. Then it will almost by itself go upwind. Some even complain that...

I think it's largely a matter of technique, but you should definitely not think the board is to advanced for you. I'm sure you will improve by the day.

I think you must mean the 2005 (first year) Kombat, mitchie? That first year is a "unique" design. Already 2006 were crisper and with much less rocker, then they have become better and better, I'd...

Hi

True, the bigger (86+) Kodes are not as wave oriented as the smaller or the earlier big Acids. But I would still encourage you to try a real wave fin on the board, like the 25cm Drake Natural....

Richardd, at you weight and with sails at 6.0 or below the 94 will pretty much not offer anything over the 86. With a bigger fin on the 86, planing with a 6.0 will be as good and the general feel...

Adapting a us base is the easiest. Just cut to shape and cut the recesses in the sides. That might require a bit of tinkering, depending on which tools you have.

For fcs, you have to mold a new...

If it's a brand new board it will surely be covered under warranty. Take it back to your dealer and let him have a look.

Yes, I think the easiest is that the newer generation come in a little "sleeve" that has see though plastic on one side. The old ones came on full EVO covers.

The SKater was a fairly flexy and narrow outline G10 fin, right? So for a two fin quiver, I reckon either Drake 22+24 or MFC K1 21.5+23 (my feeling is that the K1 generated a bit more lift per size,...

It will work. You might wanna get an even faster fin for pure blasting, but the board will carry also a fairly powerful 6.5 sail unless possibly of you are very heavy.

OK. If they don't have it, let me know and I post a few to you (but also tell your dealer to order a few of the replacement screw since it's a good move for any future eventualities).
