OFFICIAL iQFOiL SENIOR EQUIPMENT
Fin or foil, from 5 knots to 35 knots, the iQFOiL package delivers the ultimate in windsurfing racing performance with just one board, one foil, one fin, one sail.
The complete iQFOiL package includes a Starboard iQFOiL 95 Carbon Reflex board, the Severne HyperGlide Olympic rig in 9.0 (Men) or 8.0 (Women) and the iQFOiL Carbon foil by Starboard Foils.
For the 2020 season, clinics and demo events were organised in conjunction with the official iQFOiL championships as well as special dedicated events all around the world. Senior/Youth/Junior sailors and Coaches took part, demoed the equipment and learned the basics of foiling.
In 2021 the first official iQFOiL Senior World Championships will take place in Lake Silvaplana, Switzerland.
The iQFOiL Youth & Junior Class application has been approved by World Sailing. Official World and Continental Championships are expected to run from 2021 onwards.
The Severne HGO is a first of its kind. A foil racing sail built especially for the official iQFOiL class and will be the official sail for the 2024 Paris Olympic games. HGO is based on Severne’s already successful foil racing platform with multiple titles under its belt.
In 2019 World Sailing called for Sea Trials to select the equipment for the next Olympic Games in Paris’24. When this opportunity presented itself, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel(PWA Foil world champion) took the lead of the project together with Ben Severne in creating the ultimate foil racing sail. Countless hours of R&D and brainstorming resulted in a sail that not only will you faster on the racecourse but also deliver top speeds.
The HGO focuses on speed and ease of handle with a reduced luff curve and re-distribution of shaping. The control gained from these design features allows for any foil racing newcomer to get to competition level speeds in no time.

STARBOARD FOILS iQFOiL CARBON
Components: 900 front wing | 255 tail wing with -2 degree | 115 Plus fuselage | 95 Plus fuselage | 95cm iQFOiL mast
Back to back 2017/2018 World Champion and Vice World Champion, making it the most successful racing foil in windsurfing to date: Starboard’s Race foil started the iQFOiL project and it is the foil that made foiling in the Olympics a possibility. Its innovative racing geometry was the breakthrough that enabled foiling to cover Windsurfing Olympics’ wind range and performance requirements. Compared to the original Race foil, the iQFOiL foil set has been upgraded with a stiffer UHM Carbon mast and a 900 front wing for extra light-wind performance. It comes with two new Plus fuselages, the 115cm Plus for upwind downwind racing and the 95cm Plus for higher winds and racing formats with more reaching. The Plus fuselages have an adjustable tail wing angle that allows the rider to increase control in high winds or increase power in light winds.
|Front Wing: 900||Front Wing: Saddle system|
|Tail Wing: 255 -2°||Tail Wing: Adjustable saddle system|
|Fuselage: 95 Plus and 115 Plus||Fuselage: Starboard Universal Connect|
|Mast: iQFoil Carbon 95cm||Mast: Deep Tuttle|
THE iQFOiL 95 CARBON MAST
The iQFOiL 95cm Carbon mast is an extra-stiff version of the standard 95cm Carbon mast, built with 44 layers of ultra-high modulus pre-preg carbon fibre: for more performance, more control and a wider wind range.
TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT
iQFOiL sets are supplied with six angle spacers (-2° / -1.5° / -1° / -0.5° / 0° / +1°) and with a new 255 tail wing that has -2° built in.
The recommended tail wing angle on the 115 Plus is -2°, so we recommend starting with the 0° spacer. For the 95 Plus the recommend tail angle is -1°, so we recommend starting with the +1°, spacer. You can reduce tail wing angle for more speed and control, or increase for more power.
The iQFOiL sets are supplied with both the 115 Plus fuselage and the 95 Plus fuselage. The 115 Plus is recommended for extra power and for maximum upwind/downwind performance. The 95 Plus fuselage is recommended for reaching courses, for long-distance marathons and higher GPS speeds.
Other items included in the set: 900 Front Wing, 255 -2° Tail Wing and the Team Bag Size L.
