CARVE

AS GOOD AS IT GETS

Smart freeride boards intelligently designed. Everyone wants a board that goes fast with total control, jibes beautifully, planes easily and then just keeps on planing.

Welcome to the all-new Carve and Carve E: an exciting new range for riders who want the future of freeride now.

THE CARVE AT A GLANCE

The original Gravity Control System was introduced by Starboard as a revolutionary concept and has helped propel our iSonics and Formula boards to multiple world titles.

The 2020 Carve boards adopts the same system, making your sail more vertical for better control, improving jibing performance by providing more rail pressure, providing more grip, more power and more control while carving. The center of gravity is lowered so you feel locked in, stable and ready to accelerate with every gust.

The secret to a whole new level of freeride performance: a 15 cm extended flat section in the rockerline. This gives a longer, more efficient planing surface that helps get you planing, keep planing and accelerate more with every gust.

 

THE CARVE IN DETAIL

CARVE 101

Compact. The 101’s length was reduced at both the nose and tail. The extended flat section on this board was fine-tuned to be slightly shorter along the sides of the board, giving the 101 a particularly slippery and fast feeling in stronger winds.

CARVE 111, 122

Again the overall lengths are reduced both in the nose and tail. Further 111 and 122 outline refinements reduces overall overall width by 1cm and widens the tail area by 1cm. Result: improved jibing reaction, boosted control and enhanced acceleration in the upper wind-range.

CARVE E 133

A total of 8cm was reduced off the new 133 E’s nose and tail. The new outline that is narrower overall by 1cm and 1cm wider in the tail area improves jibing reaction, boosts control and improves acceleration in the upper wind-range.

CARVE E 144

The 144E’s length was reduced both in the nose and tail by a total of 9cm. The outline was further refined adding 1cm width in the tail area to boost control and improve acceleration in the upper wind-range.

RECESSED MAST TRACK

Lower center of gravity and drive. More grip. More Power. More Control. More Fun.

EXTEND YOUR SESSIONS

The Carve Flax Balsa construction in sizes 111, 122, 133 and 144 comes with a Ready To Foil re-inforced foil box. The box are reinforced to withstand heavier loads associated with foiling. They use thick, high-density PVC sheets and thick carbon fibre walls.

DRAKE SLICK FOOTSTRAPS

The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.

Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.

The iSonics feature 6mm thick footpads in the tail and 4mm in the front. A combination proven to deliver a highly reactive yet comfortable feel. The diamond grooving pattern provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

AVAILABLE CONSTRUCTIONS

STARLITE

OUR BEST VALUE OFFERING

Available in the Starlite technology, crisp and sharp and adds the durability of a tank. It uses 0.6mm Australian pine wood with glass fibres and a Carbon-Innegra perimeter rail band to combine premium technology and a quality finish in a value package.

FLAX BALSA

OUR MOST INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

The Carve are also available in our construction designed for the lightest weight but also the lowest carbon footprint; Flax Balsa. Natural end-grain balsa covers the bottom of the board, providing the board with its overall stiffness and reduced weight. The full sandwich deck uses natural uni-directional flax fibres with carbon stripes to reinforce and stiffen the most stressed sections.
Carve 111, 122, 133 and 144 in Flax Balsa construction comes with a re-inforced Ready To Foil Box.

ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES

MANGROVES

For every board sold, we plants a mangrove in the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park, absorbing one ton of CO2 over 20 years. Learn more >

PLASTIC OFFSET PROGRAM

Buy a board and we collect an equivalent of 200 plastic bags from beaches through our Plastic Offset Program. Learn more >
