The Carves are about fast, easy jibes and exhilarating rides. They offer a more classic, accessible feel with a quick, easy carving response and that special magic-touch ride that has made their fame.
Plug in and play.
A classic freerider by design
A generous deck dome offers plenty of ergonomic comfort - whether inboard or outboard strap settings are used. These strap settings are positioned to mix performance, comfort and accessibility.
The shapes' classic vee distribution, with more vee in the tail and less in the front, their even volume distribution and added nose length, all contribute to the classic riding feel with extra longitudinal balance at lower speeds.
DFC (Dual Flat Concept) rockerline offer straight line speed with a lively and exciting ride. The new Carve tail design also packs some extra volume to add jibing forgiveness: it helps the rider float out of the maneuver without sinking too fast.
New sizes! 111, 151 and 171. "The 151 and 171 are two superb freeride shapes that are amazingly fun and easy to ride, with lots of performance and excitement. Personally, I had more fun riding the Carve 171 th n smaller boards in the 120 litre range, in 7.0 conditions. Planing jibes never came as easy, the boards just cruise through chop and their own momentum just lets the boards plane through.. I never thought my favourite board in the entire Starboard range would be so big; these new shapes are truly magical." Tiesda You, Starboard R&D.
Six sizes are available, in three technologies: 111, 121, 131, 141, 151, 171 litres; Wood, Technora and Tufskin.
The Wood option is the light weight high performance option that is crisp to ride, stiffer and quicker to accelerate. It offers the highest level of dynamic shape stability and offers superior comfort and control compared to Carbon boards. The unidirectional Australian pine wood sheet 0.6mm thick wraps the entire board, deck and bottom, to form a stiff and rigid shell that is also tough and impact resistant.
A new UV protection film covers the deck to protect exposed wood from sunlight. This increases the board's durability and helps prevent the wood from cracking under prolonged UV exposure.
The Technora model is the light high-performance at a more affordable price than Wood Technology. It remains crisp, stiff and exciting to ride, with a full wood skin covering deck, rails and bottom.
The Tufskin option is the more durable and impact resistant construction, offering the most value.
