iFoil - The Olympics 2024 and beyond

We are extremely proud and excited to share with all of you the news that the Starboard iFoil has been selected as the 2024 Olympic Equipment, replacing the RS:X equipment after the 2020 Olympic Games. The iFoil concept is the fruit of many years of windsurf foiling equipment development, but developing the equipment to running a successful Olympic Campaign are two very different stories. The story of our iFoil proposal has, above all, been one of great teamwork with a common goal of making the future of windsurfing more exciting and sustainable for the generations to come.


While big changes like this one are always daunting, it has been very encouraging to see especially some of the most successful RS:X sailors pushing to help bring about this Olympic windsurfing revolution.

The Olympics is the sporting pinnacle and the iFoil project also goes beyond the Olympics. We've seen foil racing unite PWA racers, Formula Racers and Olympians. Next for us is to go mainstream.

With iFoil equipment appealing and affordable not only to professionals but also the weekend windsurfer, our next goal will be to create a foil racing platform at the local level.

In the meantime, to get all of you as excited as we are about this change, we would like to introduce to you some of the key players of the iFoil campaign and try to answer some of the questions you might have while we are at it.
