windsurfing planches Starboard 2017 Ultrakode thruster
Introducing the all-new UltraKode in the lightest waveboard technology.
The two smallest sizes (72, 76) are shapes by Mark and Jaeger Stone. The four largest sizes (86, 93, 99, 105) are designed by Dany Bruch and PWA Champion Philip Koster. The UltraKode 80 is a merger of the two groups.
“Love this new UltraKode. In Margaret River, I’ve been using it as a quad. It has a perfect rail-to-rail game. And in Geraldton, I’ve been using it as a twin fin… Overall I’m super happy of the 2017 range.”
– Philip Köster
Thruster, quad or twin, it’s the dream wave board by the Dream Wave Team, that weighs 400 to 500 grams lighter than a classic thruster.
Comes with 4 x Starbox and one US box, as well as plugs to suit your fin set up.
The new Starbox allows you to fit Slot Box fins in five seconds each, and remembers your last setting to get you on the water faster. It is also compatible with US box fins.

The UltraKodes 80, 86, 93, 99 and 105 are supplied with a set of MFC TF thruster fins.
The Jaeger Stone models (72, 76) are sold with Jaeger’s Drake Stone Surf G-10 fins.
Quad upgrades packs are also available for those preferring the characteristics of the quad fin set up. Twin fins (MB Twinzers) are also available and sold separately.
The bigger models have a mono-concave with double concave in front of the fins and a flat Vee on the tail.
The two smallest models (72 and 76) have a double concave running into a round Vee in the tail.
Compared to the 2016 Kode Wave and the 2016 Quad, the all-new UltraKode has less tail kick and less nose scoop for higher top-speeds, quick planing and more control.
When comparing the UltraKode’s outline to the 2016 Kode Wave, it is shorter with slightly more volume in the squash-tail.

What is UltraCore?
UltraCore is Starboard’s proprietary sandwich core material that’s 30% stronger, 40% stiffer and 10% lighter than conventional PVC sandwich cores. UltraCore allows Starboard to build boards up to 1.2 kg lighter than our 2016 models.

The UltraKodes are available in our new incredibly light UltraCore Carbon construction which makes them as light or lighter than anything else out there.
They’re built in our exclusive UltraCore sandwich and reinforced with Omega stringers and what we call Smart Carbon: putting the carbon smartly in the right places for an optimized combination of stiffness, flex and feel.
The UltraCore Reflex Carbon is the exclusive, super-premium option for a board that is even lighter on the scale.
They offer more feel, more responsiveness and more flex than conventional boards. The Reflex Carbon is limited in stock, built to order with a four month delivery lead time.

The UltraKodes feature 10mm thick footpads with a new square grooving pattern that provides more grip and comfort over extended sessions.
They also come with the new iteration of the Drake Deluxe straps, strong and comfortable with strap-size indicators for easy adjustments.
