Question Atom - Wood? or Wood Not?

The initial Atom was available in wood. Upon it's return it was available on carbon only, and for 2015 also in AST. What was Starboard's thinking in offering either extreme and leaving a gap in the middle by excluding the wood construction? My guess is that the wood construction is sizeable market.

Hi Wsice

The Carbon version who is available since last year is at the same price of the wood technologie, the reason why distributors didn't want to have it available. So basically you have carbon version at the wood price.
Hope this help

All the best

Thanks Remi.
The issue for me is not the price, but rather the durability. Wood is a great mid point between durability and performance. If not this year, would you see Starboard producing a wood version of the Atom next year?

Remi.

Let me rephrase my question, as wood construction may not be an option in the near future. What was the thinking in producing the AST version and what market is it intended for? Also, in what way and to what degree would the AST version differ from the carbon version in performance?

Thanks.

Hi Wsice

Distributors decide to go for Ast to have a different price with the carbon version is was not a question of performance or durability.

Understand fully your point and bring it on table for 2016.

All the best

Default Atomic Carbon or AST

I will buy the atomiq 110 now. Is there any markable difference in perfomance for us normally surfers exept the price.
Is there any difference between the Atomiq 110 from 2014 to 2015 or is it only the paintings?
with regards,

John1
