Futura - Speed never goes out of style.

If you do opt for the Carve, PLEASE buy it in wood. I tried the Carve 121 Tufskin, and it was not much fun at all. I didn't find it to carve especially, need to be seriously overpowered to plane through jibes.

This will either make your decision easier, or then not... Regardless it is useful reading: http://www.boardseekermag.com/windsu...-2010-138.html

They write, among other things: When the original Starboard Carve was replaced with the Futura, it’s fair to say that we weren’t the biggest of fans. The Futura was certainly fast, but in our opinion it seemed to have lost the essence of what ‘freeriding’ was about. With its thin and wide profile it made the rider feel more like a passenger than a pilot, and it certainly didn’t feel manoeuvrable underfoot.

I also noticed the spinout they mentioned in this review. The wood weighs almost 2kgs less than the Tufskin, so this probably makes it much livelier and exciting to ride. I could still chophop the tufskin version, despite its weight, so jumping the wood version would definitely be possible.
