Default RE: Can you freestyle with a Carve?

Personally, at your stage, I would recommend that in planing conditions you work on planing jibes and fast tacks, as well as learning to chop hop. In sub-planing conditions, work on helitacks, sailing front-to-back, sailing clew-first, backwinded pivot jibes, sailing fin-first, and 'twiddly' moves like sail-n-body 360's.

The C101 is a fine board for learning all of those moves, and probably *B's best for your stage, since it will be the easiest board in the lineup to learn a planing jibe, and will work fine for all the rest of the stuff.

Have fun!
