Starboard and Airush Freewing Air 2020:
This is an all-around wing that’s easy to use.
It’s especially controllable when overpowered and efficient when pumping in light wind due to the generous strut diameter which solidifies the frame’s stiffness. The wing is surprisingly stable when luffed in the neutral position, making it ideal for downwinders and carving.
Optimal for wing foil beginners to down-the-line wave riders.
NEW ALL-ROUND WING, EXTRA COMFORT
FOR ALL KIND OF USERS
We focused on reduced arm pressure and extra comfort when riding for long periods of time. Every size has been precisely designed to achieve maximum control and performance. Optimal for wingfoil beginners to down-the-line wave riders.

High-visibility windows allows safety in crowds – the more you see, the safer you’ll be!

Starboard Chief Innovator Svein Rasmussen about the Freewing Air 2020
The Freewing Air development started back in 2012 at our Airush development center in Cape Town. In 2015 we decided to put the development on ice as we felt that a windsurfing rig was still functioning better. Then came SUP foiling, changing the game and now we are rolling out our new Freiin program, including industry-leading 4´6” x 25” boards to amazingly well-performing 7 meter wings. Its been loads of fun for our groups brands to develop products together and when Airush launched the first kites back some 19 years ago, it was under the Airush / Starboard alliance name.
Our workshop is 15 meters away from our lake in Thailand, so our days and evenings are filled with Wingboarding and pump foil testing.
We look forward to taking the sport we almost invented to the next level, the same way we have helped Windsurfing and Paddleboarding become easy sports to learn, and providing game-changing high-end performance year after year. After being in the water for over 40 years, the 3 things i am super passionate about exploring Wingboarding, the rebuilding of Junior Windsurfing, and supporting our own Olympic iQFoil class, but the most fun is developing wing gear.
