The Ace Foil features the iconic pin-tail design for efficient takeoff and tracking downwind. The outline is designed to resemble nature’s most streamlined possible shape, a teardrop, and the slightly recessed standing area gives the rider a flat, stable, and more connected feel over the foil.

After much testing, we also found the Ace Foil to be a fantastic crossover board for not only SUP downwinding, but light wind wingboarding as well as SUP surfing. The Ace Foil is a reduced and refined size range, available in four different sizes from 6’9β€³ up to 7’10β€³.


Ace Foil with Footstrap Inserts: This is the preferred option for a wingfoil crossover board, perfect for riders seeking ultimate control and stability. Equipped with front & rear footstrap inserts. Ace Foil (Lite) without Footstrap Inserts.

For those craving efficiency and speed, the strapless version offers a lighter-weight design without footstrap inserts and handle. With up to 18% reduced weight saving, you experience effortless gliding and improved take off in SUP downwinding, allowing you to push the limits even further.

THE LEGACY The ACE SUP race board from Starboard was an industry-first design that reimagined the downwind race board design. It was first produced as a 12’6” SUP race board and debuted at the Battle of the Paddle in 2009, the ACE was available in many iterations and sizes from 12’6” – 14’0” models between 2009 – 2021. This year, the ACE has been reborn in a brand new size range, for the latest downwind innovation: Downwind SUP Foiling.
