STARBOARD Switch 180
German "Surf" Kitesurf special 5/ Sept. 2001

2001 is the year of twin tip boards. Mid of the season Starboard released one as well. A real twin with - nearly - true wakeboard feeling. But with a lot of volume in the mid section, the board planes quickly and remain floaty in light wind and in choppy conditions. The edge has a soft grip, and requires, especially if the kite pulls hard, a proportioned loading to avoid "sliding". It allows real twin tip moves even in light wind.
