Racestrap: weighing a mere 65g and designed to absorb less water. A total weight saving over half a kilo: up to 10% of the board's weight. Adjustable only via the 6 fixed screw settings. Quickstrap: quick to adjust with its innovative external, symmetrical adjustment system. Extra thick internal lining for a comfortable contact. Wavestrap: the standard reference in comfort and firmness.
Nose Protector
The Starboard dual density Nose protector - high density on the upper surface to spread the load, low density underneath to absorb impact energy.

To be attached to the nose with neoprene contact adhesive. Available in S, M and L sizes:

S - small boards and pointed noses.
M - medium sized boards with slightly rounded noses.
L - larger, lightwind boards with round, wide noses.
Non Twist Device
These devices, inserted through the footstrap screw between the footstrap and the board surface, effectively help rpevent the footstraps from twisting.
Safety Washer
The smart Starboard safety washers are developed especially to protect the feet, sail and boom from fin screw heads that protrude above the deck's surface. A simple innovation claimed in 2003 as the smartest idea of the year!
Wind Sock
Starboard windsocks indicate the wind strength and show the wind direction even in the lightest of winds. A fun reminder for when conditions are good to go.

The new Starboard bag boasts a whole new design packed with innovative ideas and more conveniently placed handles than ever. Padded in thick foam, lined on one side with reflective silver material, built for durability and featuring a new high quality zipper, the boardbag will protect windsurf boards during general transport and storage.

Meshed nose pocket - for a convenient place to store parts such as extensions, screwdrivers, harnesses or wet boardshorts. Split tail design - to allow a finned board to be slotted in easily. Security Loops - when attaching the board and bag on to the car roof-racks, slotting the roof-rack straps through the Security Loops helps reduce the chances of losing the board should the straps loosen up. Stomp pad - a great feature that allows you to slot the board in more conveniently: stomp on the stomp pad to hold the boardbag in place as the board is pushed in.

Start Leash
The new Start leash system gives beginners more confidence and the chance to be completely independent, by making learning alone or without supervision safer. The leash also makes teaching easier, since the teacher no longer has to swim after the student everytime they drift away. One end of the leash line may be hooked to a fixed object on the shore or held by the supervisor, while the other end clips on to the leash loop attachment found at the centre on the bottom of the 2004 Start or Starsurfer models. In case the user cannot return to shore, the user can then use the leash to reel him, herself or the student back in. Because the attachment is near the centre of the hull, the use of the leash will not affect the way the board reacts in non-planing conditions. The leash also features two lead weights to prevent the fin from getting caught in the rope.
