Imho is clear
99 lt and no us-box as you can use sail up to 8,5 according to specs, and so you need a long fin, imho 40 that is the upper end of fin range. Us-box 40 cm is not recommended, too leverage I've heard.
So tuttle or powerbox. No powerbox for brand choice, I don't understand the compatibility between single rear straps setup and the two screws of tuttle system.
Anyway imho a great idea and a great board, I'd like to test one.

P.s.: at 1'00'' of the video can clearly be seen an us box on the bottom, did they change idea before production?

So the question now become: now that Atom is fitted with a tuttlebox, is the actual straps insert positioning the same like the "us-boxed" model shown in photos and video?
Imho a board like this show how good would be to use powerbox, as I don't understand with single rear strap, probably the normal setup in this kind of board, how is it possible to tight the front screw of the tuttle, supposed to be UNDER the strap itself... Old question I know

Starboard seems to have silently introduced a board with Powerbox. For 2011 the Atom had a powerbox!! Good step.

Now just hope they will also introduce the Kode and Carve with powerbox.

I have been trying to find some videos on the Atom but have been unable to. Can anyone tell me where to see the Atom in action? Thank you.

Sorry to tell you that Kode will continue with a 8" US box up to the 103lts this makes this board a single fin wave board alternative.
