windsurfing planches Starboard 2016 Carve -20%
Starboard’s iconic plug and play freeriders: fast, high performance shapes built on a chassis that
requires little technique and tuning to get to peak performance. With added length and a more
rigid fin, the Carves get planing more smoothly, more easily and maintain rolling stability in the
choppiest waters. Sheet in, accelerate and go fast.
Outline: longer outlines are designed to for longitudinal stability and
smoother transition into planing. The new 2016 shapes are 4-5cm wider
except for the 161 which is 1.5cm wider. The extra widths add more stability
while the narrower tails and redesigned cutaways keep the Carve’s high top
end speed and ability to quickly accelerate. The new shapes feel like they fly
higher on the water.
Rocker: zero tail-kick rocker for the easiest, smoothest entry into planing.
Profile: to maintain the volume of the new wider shapes, the boards are
thinner on average while keeping the dome in the tail, keeping them comfortable
in all strap positions.
Rail shape: the rails have been thinned down from 90cm to the nose for a
quicker, sharper entry into the jibe.
UltraCore: The World’s lightest windsurf board construction using a new
Starboard proprietary sandwich core material with up to 50% higher
mechanical properties. A unidirectional Carbon layer adds extra crispness
and rigidity in the planing section of the board.
Wood Reflex: a full PVC Sandwich Core deck construction with Biax Glass for reflex and an
Australian pine wood bottom for the unique Starboard Wood feel. Both
techs include a full perimeter Carbon Innegra rail band that creates a
rigid frame and increases rail impact resistance.
Carve 161 special: this model is based on the 151 with 1cm added
thickness for added volume. This added volume adds extra float and
forgiveness when uphauling, exiting from jibes and getting on to the plane.
Fins: Freeride Power CNC G10 fins with a thinner tip profile, an upright
rake and a thicker base. For maximum stability and traction.
