The Freewing can be paired with an isup, composite paddle board or foil board.
For every Freewing sold, Starboard plant a mangrove in the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park, absorbing one ton of CO2 over 20 years and pick up 1.1 kg of beach/ocean plastic trash. Equivalent to the amount of plastic trash entering the ocean, per person, per year

WHAT SUP NORTH THINKS
We’ve done plenty of flying with the 4m, 5m and 6m Freewing. The 4m is well-built and powerful, and great in stronger wind. The canopy holds its shape and we’re fans of the leash with built-in swivel to avoid tangling.
5m is ideal for most wingers and wingfoilers – plenty of power in decent wind, and a good size to get going in lighter wind too.
The 6m performs remarkably well in light wind that might otherwise stop foiling action. In light wind we were impressed that it’s not cumbersome – the pulled in tips mean that, despite the larger surface area, they aren’t prone to catching while foiling. It has got us going in very light wind, and works well paired with a high aspect foil wing. In stronger wind, even a little over-powered it still performs well – power can be released by flagging out the wing at a flatter angle.
