Starboard Kode Carbon Sandwich 2023
PLAYFUL WAVE RIDING. ENDLESS DRIVE.
Drive, agility and speed. The Kodes are more fun in waves and keep their fast freeride feel. Are we promising too much? Come and try for yourself.
THE KODE IN DETAIL
The versatile Kodes ensure a confident and smooth ride in choppy conditions. In wave mode, the Kode encourages you into more radical turns than ever before – and get away with it in style. When the waves are flat, keep the action happening with the included freeride fin to maximize speed and drive. And fun. We designed the Kodes to offer you the best onshore wave performance and excel in freeride, freewave and Bump & Jump. Time to play.
85, 95 & 105: ROUNDED TAILS AND NOSES
The curved tail outline enhances radical turns and smooth wave riding. Going upwind, downwind, reaching or riding waves, the consistent drive keeps you moving in tricky conditions. A sleek, rounded nose maintains a smooth ride in any conditions.
LOTS OF VOLUME – COMPACT SHAPE
Our larger volume Kode boards have loads of volume packed into a compact outline. The thin rails help these larger boards ride waves easily. With short nose and tail lengths, the bigger Kodes feel like a much smaller board under your feet, responding much more directly in manoeuvres.
SPEED, GRIP & CONTROL
The bottom shape blends a fast rocker along the centreline for maximum speed with more curved rockers on the sides. As you engage the rail, that added curvature on the sides of the Kode bites and you feel the board lock in to a smooth carving arc.
SINGLE FIN: FAST & FUN
Set up your Kode with the optional Drake FreeWave single fin and take it out in any conditions. With this set up the Kode doesn’t need waves to unleash its full potential. The classic single fin configuration provides plenty of speed, early planing and a very directional drive, much like a freeride board.
*Drake FreeWave single fin is not included
MORE WAVE PERFORMANCE
To get even more wave performance out of your Kode, simply load up the thruster fin set also supplied with the board. You’ll quickly sense how the shorter center fin and side fins add a new dimension of manoeuvrability, grip and stability to your Kode.
Featuring two lightweight Starboxes and one US box (Powerbox on 125 & 135) the versatility doesn’t take a toll on the overall board weight. The Starbox system allows you to fit Slot Box fins, quickly locating your last setting to get you on the water faster. Starbox is also compatible with US box fins.
A LOCKED AND COMFORTABLE STANCE
Premium Drake footstraps are made from Yulex eco-foam with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel. Under your feet the 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern provide positive grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.
SMART COLOR SET-UP
Wave: Adjust your mast base and footstrapsaround the white marks. FreeWave: Adjust your mast base and footstraps around the light blue marks. Freeride: Adjust your mast base and footstraps around the dark blue marks.
CARBON SANDWICH PERFORMANCE VALUE
Ultralight weight, premium value and using more environmentally friendly materials. The bottom is built in full T700 uni-directional ﬂat-woven carbon for maximum stiﬀness while the deck is 60% carbon, alternating between uni-directional and bi-axial carbon layers for optimized ﬂex. The composite sandwich layers include the use of ultra-high density PET and PVC foam. For 2023, the Magenta highlighted Carbon Sandwich is a new construction for the Kode line.
THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION
Developed by Jean Louis Colmas in 1984, Wood Technology became Starboard’s trademark construction in 1995. Wood Technology remains a favourite for riders preferring more comfort, more control and the unique crisp feel of an original Starboard. It’s time to bring back this technology while reducing our CO2 footprint. Full wood sandwich lamination of 0.6mm Australian Pinewood over modern, recyclable 3mm PET core foam ensures durability and comfort in a good strength to weight ratio. Today’s wood is less visible in modern graphics; UV protected by fresh blue paint and stickers that compliment the natural grain with a really nice effect. A classy re-edition of a classic Starboard Original.
85, 95 & 105: FASTER, SMOOTHER, SNAPPIER
Kode 85, 95 and 105 accelerate quicker with increased area behind the fin. This lift is balanced with more nose area, creating a super smooth ride in choppy waters. Manoeuvrability is enhanced by the added curve around the front footstraps. The new Kode hip outline makes bottom turns and jibes notably more engaging and flowing.
