Starboard Windsurfing's 2024 Carve series promises an exceptional windsurfing experience with a focus on easy planing, confident control, and autopilot jibes. Here's a detailed overview of the key features and improvements in the Carve lineup:

Models:

  • The Carve series includes models with volumes: 99, 109, 119, 129, 139, 149, 159, and 169.

Main Highlights:

  1. Effortless Planing:

    • The Carve boards are designed to deliver effortless planing, making it easy for riders to find the footstraps effortlessly. A long flat section on larger sizes enhances passive planing and provides a smooth ride.
  2. Controlled Ride in Any Conditions:

    • The boards offer controlled rides in various conditions, ensuring stability and confidence for windsurfers of different skill levels.
  3. Individual Shaping for Intended Conditions:

    • Each board is individually shaped for specific conditions and skill levels, optimizing performance based on size and purpose.
  4. Enhanced Deck Concave:

    • An enhanced deck concave creates a lower center of gravity, improving drive and power through the rig. It also contributes to stability in rough conditions and during jibes.
  5. Concave Nose Segment:

    • The concave nose segment generates more lift, enhancing planing performance in light winds.
  6. Double-Step Tail:

    • Inspired by the iSonic racing line, the new double-step tail improves planing and acceleration.
  7. Refined Underwater Shape at the Tail:

    • The underwater shape at the tail is carefully refined to maximize early planing while reducing drag at higher top-end speeds.
  8. Easy Passive Planing:

    • Extending the tail rocker flat section forward allows for easy passive planing without much effort. This feature facilitates a more natural planing threshold and maintains glide through wind holes.
  9. Optional Inboard Stance:

    • The optional inboard stance with a middle position back footstrap provides more rail-to-rail reactivity and control for riders seeking storm-riding capabilities.
  10. Drake Slick Footstraps:

    • The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced, and plant-based Yulex foam. They offer 85% natural rubber content, reducing CO² emissions during manufacturing.
  11. 10mm Thick Footpads:

    • Underfoot, the 10mm thick footpads feature a diamond grooving pattern, providing essential grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.
  12. Drake Freeride Fin:

    • The Carve boards come with the Drake Freeride fin, offering great control. The fin is carefully specified and optimized to enhance the exciting and responsive performance of each Carve board.

The Carve series aims to provide windsurfers with a versatile and enjoyable riding experience, catering to a range of conditions and skill levels.
