Starboard Wingboard 24 Ace Brushed Carbon
ONE BOARD DOES IT ALL!!
The Ace Foil features the iconic pin-tail design for efficient takeoff and tracking downwind. The outline is designed to resemble nature’s most streamline possible shape, a teardrop, and the slightly recessed standing area gives the rider a flat, stable, and more connected feel over the foil.
After much testing, we also found the Ace Foil to be a fantastic crossover board for not only SUP downwinding, but light wind wingboarding as well as SUP surfing.
The infamous ACE raceboard from Starboard was an industry first design that reimagined the downwind raceboard design. First produced as a 12’6” SUP Race board and debuting at the Battle of the Paddle in 2009, the ACE (originally named “The NEW”) was available in many iterations and sizes from 12’6” – 14’0” models between 2009 – 2021.
This year, the ACE has been reborn in a brand new size range, for the latest downwind innovation: Downwind SUP Foiling.
NEW ACE OUTLINE
The teardrop outline is the most efficient outline, offering even volume and a stable shape.
NEW NARROW WIDTH
Designed for speed downwind and early takeoff. The aim of the Ace Foil is to offer a super-fast accelerating board to quickly catch bumps and accelerate quickly onto foil. The Ace Foil model is available in narrow sizes from 19″ up to 23″.
NEW PIN TAIL
Tracking and efficiency are two key aspects of the pintail design. The pin tail offers great tracking for catching bumps, while the pin tail also brings the water back together, allowing a more efficient takeoff and touchdown with less board touching the water.
NEW ROUND RAILS
The rounded rails were originally designed to be easy to use in choppy ocean conditions. This same concept has been brought to the Ace Foil model, which not only creates ease in the chop but also allows the board to have an amazing spring when pumping to get on the foil.
The rocker is fine-tuned for speed, spring, and larger bumps. The rockerline has been tested in a range of conditions, from flatwater to large ocean swell.
NEW 16” FOIL BOX
With many iterations of downwind foils hitting the market, the 16″ foil box caters to any foil preference. This downwind model features a “further forward” box for fine-tuned and comfortable downwind foiling.
THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED
• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.
• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.
• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.
• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.
