Starboard Freestyle Extreme 96
Wind Magazine 08/2001



96 liters of pure Freestyle, a name is almost a joke, sharp forms and ultra compact, this new Starboard has some beautiful arguments for free style purists: tucked-in rails but chamfered in places, a combination of concaves, V and other channels, an outline virtually twin tip with the nose and tail nicely squared… Finishing is the best with a visible wood inlay and a short raked fin.

On the water, it is clear, this 'FreeSex' is a freestyle bomb. The planing is smashing, accelerating hard and virtually instantaneously in light breezes. [It is] really cool for knitting aerial tricks on ultra flat water, because the pop is very nervous. The fin placed very far back can be surprising, but it gives an edge in speed and acceleration. Super easy to place in the air, she spins also to perfection in slide moves. (air jibe, spocks…) and makes progression and freestyle perfectioning nice and easy. Flat water and tricks orientated, she can become tiring in long speed reaches, where the very flat deck makes her a little uncomfortable on the ankles.
