Starboard Quad 81 WoodCarbon, PlancheMag (France), Feb - Mar 2010



"The Quad has speed and precision, reaching higher parts of the wave with even more speed. You're not riding on eggs on the bottom turns like twin fin boards, especially when you're cranking hard to turn tight. On the second part of the bottom turn, when you're tightening your turn, you don't have the fear of sliding and the feeling of insecurity like on a twin. It's the same on the off-the-lip, where the board grips strongly to spring you back on to the wave face and keep you close to the peak. Immediately accessible, this board also helps you progress in your surf, letting riders discover new trajectories where they couldn't even go before." Planchemag Feb-Mar 2010
