2011 Starboard Carve
THE BACK! The NEW Carves are about fast, easy jibes and exhilarating rides.
$1,630.00 — $1,960.00
The Carve is back! And better than ever. These boards are all about fast, easy jibes and exhilarating rides. They offer a more classic, accessible feel with a quick, easy carving response and that special magic-touch ride that has made their fame.
The generous deck dome provides both inbound and outbound strap settings so you can mix performance, comfort and accessibility. The shape is a classic vee disribution with more vee in the tail and less in the front. The even volume distribution and added nose length, all contribute to the classic riding feel with extra longitudinal balance at lower speeds. The rockerline offer straight line speed and the tail has a little extra volume for jibing forgiveness.
Six sizes are available, in three technologies: 111, 121, 131, 141, 151, 171 litres; Wood, Technora and Tufskin.
The Wood option is the light weight high performance option that is crisp to ride, stiffer and quicker to accelerate. It offers the highest level of dynamic shape stability and offers superior comfort and control compared to Carbon boards. The unidirectional Australian pine wood sheet 0.6mm thick wraps the entire board, deck and bottom, to form a stiff and rigid shell that is also tough and impact resistant.
A new UV protection film covers the deck to protect exposed wood from sunlight. This increases the board’s durability and helps prevent the wood from cracking under prolonged UV exposure.
The Technora model is the light high-performance at a more affordable price than Wood Technology. It remains crisp, stiff and exciting to ride, with a full wood skin covering deck, rails and bottom.
