The Carves are Starboard's pure freeride boards.

The Carves are always easy to tune and ride. They deliver their best performance, all the time. Exciting, fun and light, they always remain controllable, comfortable and forgiving: they are the plug and play freeriders.


"I was testing the new 2012 Carves against the 2010/2011 models. I could not believe what I felt. It felt like there was a five year gap in development time. The difference is just incredible."

Jean Louis Colmas, original Starboard shaper and inventor of Wood Technology, contributing designer and tester.

"Plug and play has never covered such a wide wind range. The level of control, forgiveness and comfort in rough conditions is mind-blowing. Add the ability to put larger sails and plane earlier than anyone else, and this board will leave any other classic freerider behind."

Tiesda You, Starboard brand manager and board designer.

"The new Carves are a lot faster than the previous generation. By really a lot. We will need to test them against the Futura now, and I will not be surprised if they are as fast. I'm confident that with these new models, we have a board that is faster, more easy, earlier-planing and more comfortable than before - and by a big margin."

Remi Vila, lead designer for the new 2012 Carves.
