Next on my list of “experiments with foils” (after Freeride 1500) was the largest and most popular Starboard foil (their bestseller, as they claim): SuperCruiser (area: 1700 cm2).
Here is what Starboard says about that foil: “Takes off at low speeds, keeps you flying through foil jibes and 360s, and simply our most fun and maneuverable wind foil for foiling with small sails and compact foil boards.”
I can confirm most of that, but not everything. For now, I had a few sessions with that foil, not precisely on “compact board and small sail”. For that kind of equipment, I would need much stronger wind, which I didn’t have until now.
Since I had light wind conditions (at least in the first two sessions), I used SB FreeRide Foil 150 and Neil Pryde Speedster 8,2.
SuperCruiser comes as standard with an Aluminium V5 mast 85 cm, fuselage Evolution Clasicc 102 cm, and tail wing C300 330.
The difference between regular Evolution fuselages and Evolution classic I described in the article “Evolution 105 Vs. Evolution Classic 102”
In short, with classic, the front wing sits nearer the mast (that means more backward than with regular fuselage). Thus, you can use that foil for wing or maybe even for kite foiling. In the windsurfing environment, that would be a more freestyle situation (increased maneuverability).
