2009 Starboard iSonic 111
Early planing and especially the ability to maintain planing are excellent. It simply tracks solidly off the rail, delivering superb gliding qualities. In chop, the Starboard doesn’t bounce around like the Exocet/Mistral/Tabou, it has a finer touch and keeps a high level of speed. Its excellent overall speed in all tacks and all conditions is what makes it rewarding on a race course. It’s extremely versatile and has the ability to pull ahead of the game no matter what the conditions.Posted:09-Oct-08, Read 10225 times,
2009 Starboard Evil Twin 74
The Evil Twin planes up early and keeps planing well. It feels both responsive and smooth. Quite directional, it feels easy and lively and also tracks better than other twins. It offers a lot of speed on the bottom turn. It can drive off the front foot on long bottoms and can switch to the tail for vertical snaps. What is extraordinary is its ability to close your bottom turns tight. It’s like a mix of the Evo that pivots more and twin fins that carve more. Among the very best boards for side and side–onshore conditions. Accessible and radical, it will appeal to many. An excellent board to discover a new style in surfing.
