What worked: The return of the Carve is welcome. The simple but sexy stick is guaranteed to make any sailor stoked.
What we liked: Fast controllable acceleration. Inspired intermediate testers to put the pedal to the metal. Thrills when wanted, control when needed.
Buyer beware: More aggressive sailors looked elsewhere for a livelier ride.
Best suits: Those looking for a high wind board to progress with
Other highlights: Want to carve in lighter wind? The range goes up to 171 liters.
“Bounced onto a plane quickly. Great volume distribution and smooth carving jibes.” - Ed Sinofsky
