By moving the four fins closer together, the Quad becomes looser

By moving the four fins further apart, the Quad delivers more drive and traction.

By using the larger fins in the front and the smaller ones in the back, the Quad delivers maximum drive.

By switching to Twin fin mode (optional), the Quads are in their most loose, tail-whipping setting.

  • The powerful rail-driven wave board
  • Generates maximum speed and drive, bringing an awesome production of speed, flow and power
  • The preferred choice for the pure wave rider looking speed, drive and power.

Key features

  • Smooth, continuous rockerlines have a flattened out area under the back foot
  • Vee bottom feeds into a mono-concave in the tail
  • Soft, rounded rails in the midsection and the nose for a smooth grip
  • Compact, wide and powerful outlines
  • New 2012 Quad 87 shape: its bottom shape has been tweaked to include less Vee in the midsection, smoothening out its rockerline for a more constant curve.
  • Heel bumpers
  • Four G10 Quad fins supplied as standard
  • Ultra-light Slot Boxes are used for minimal weight (plugs are also included with the board)

"In either down-the-line conditions or onshore, the Quads contain speed well through a bottom or top turn whilst also being able to produce incredible speed and drive for the aggressive rider. With speed and power, the rider can aggressively smack the lip, throw tail or project into an air move.

Straight line planing feel: a test winner for its planing ability and top-end speed, the Quad is a surprising performer in this category. The fin area from multiple fins provides excellent lift up onto the plane, whilst the centre of effort is close to the board and spread over the entire tail, meaning it's very controllable at high speed in high wind conditions."

Starboard Design Details

The custom-manufactured bolts fit the same screwdriver as your footstraps, making them effective against sand, keeping the system simple and hassle-free. Starboard designs this connection point to be extremely stiff, strong and reliable, to preserve every ounce of performance and feel available. Boards fitted with a Deep Tuttle fin box can use both normal and deep tuttle fins, allowing the board to use a wider range of fin sizes.


Starboard Technology

Tufskin technology uses layers of 3-dimensional 400g glass mat wetted out with an expanding epoxy resin system that creates volume within the skin as it cures under pressure. TechnoraTM is a special type of high tenacity Aramid fiber with remarkably high tensile strength, high toughness, and high impact-resistant qualities. TechnoraTM reinforcements together with Kevlar®, Carbon and Wood laminates strengthen the skin, nose, and heel areas.
