Starboard has pioneered a new line of pre-impregnated carbon fins and guess what, they float!
Starboard use the same, super lightweight 3k prepreg twill carbon layup that is based on their World Championship winning, Lima Paddle.
The 3k pre-impregnated carbon twill wave is an ultra-lightweight weave that creates super stiff performance throughout the fin. The trailing edge features a super sharp 0.4mm for clean hydrodynamics. The new range of fins adds speed and performance like never before. SUP surfers will have a more high-performing, responsive, engaged, and locked-in fin setup. After testing with multiple team riders, we could not believe the difference in speed, power, and flow with the new Carbon Surf Fins.
The racing line of fins has been developed alongside world-class racers, who tested and developed our Flash and Flash+ fins. Flash fins are 50% lighter than our previous Natural Winner and are sharper, thinner and stiffer.
Race Fins – Speed for Elite Performance. The new, faster, and thinner carbon race fins are specially designed to take racing to the next level. The Flash and Flash+ fins are thinner than their predecessors and fine-tuned to give great all-around racing performance. The Flash and Flash+ fins have been tested and optimized to work in various conditions, from flatwater to sprints to ocean chop.
In our 3K Carbon Prepreg Twill layup, we were able to achieve one of the lightest fins in the racing market. Flash is the smallest race fin in the line-up, coming in at a mere 124g (Previous Natural Winner was 240g avg).
Surf Fins – Performance you can feel. The new, ultra-light carbon surf fins will enhance your performance in the waves, providing more drive, grip, and speed out of turns. The carbon twill construction creates a stiffer fin, offering incredible drive as it grips and holds during your bottom and top turns. After numerous prototypes and tests, the construction was fine-tuned to provide some flex in the tip of the fin, creating reflex and spring out of turns. As the profile gets wider towards the base of the fin, more layers of carbon help to stiffen the performance for more drive and hold. The trailing edge features the 0.4mm thick edge for speed. The carbon surf fins are probably the lightest fin in the market, with the 4.5 side fin averaging 44g per fin.
