The 14’ x 28″ All Star Downwind is the perfect solution for those wanting a downwind race board that’s fast and easy to travel with. A 28″ width offers extra stability and control in choppy ocean conditions, while the curved rocker with raised nose kick prevents the nose from diving when connecting to bumps.
Airline boards feature a free-flowing aramid cable which locks the board in shape when inflated, creating a solid trustworthy hull sensation. The cable is attached to the nose, goes under the bottom and ends at the fin box. The preset cable is slightly shorter than the board so when the board inflates, the cable comes under tension and stiffens the board significantly. Starboard has measured 1.8 cm less hull deflection in testing and 2016 World Champion Connor Baxter swears by it. Airline boards feature new race handles and a EVA standing tray, and include a lightweight leash, FCS fin and a board bag.
