Supplied with a single fin and leaving the twin fin set ups as optional, the Evo IQs prioritise straight line speed and acceleration with a solid fin grip. On the wave face, it's all unmistakably Evo: A comfortable ride that makes wave riding easier. Flow through tight turns and project big aerials off the lip . Maximise wave-riding performance in the widest variety of wind and wave conditions.
Single fin setting: straightline speed priority with a solid fin grip. Classic Evo performance.
Skate setting: For a more rail driven sensation where release of the tail is enhanced for new school sliding manoeuvres.
Starboard's new Slot Box: the new box system fundamental to the Evo IQ concept. Starting from a clean sheet, the Slot box is 70% lighter than the US box. This allows for multiple fin box configurations without excessive weight penalty. The Slot Box 13 has 3cm of adjustment room and current US based fins can also be cut to fit. The custom-manufactured bolts fit the same screwdriver as your footstraps, making them effective against sand, keeping the system simple and hassle-free.
WoodCarbon - the lightest, stiffest option;
Shape: Forward Vee that spirals into reduced vee between the feet and ending in a monoconcave through the tail. The forward V makes it easy to initiate a rail into a turn by helping to tip the forward rail down as you lean forward. This aides the use of the front foot for better drive. This then blends into a monoconcave tail which channels and accelerates the water through the back of the board. Thus creating curve on the rail for a loose feel when turning, yet allows for a flatter rocker down the middle of the board for more speed and quicker planing. Evo rails are soft and rounded like surfboards - keeps the ride flowing and smooth.
