AS GOOD AS IT GETS!
Back in 2000 the Carve was voted freeride board of the year, setting the roadmap for shorter wider freeride boards. Now 20 years later, the legendary Carve is extending and broadening the performance for all of us who love to accelerate into a comfortable fun freeride mode, carve up jibes with easy entrance, while enjoying fast exits. Our 2021 Carves are smart freeride boards intelligently designed especially to facilitate you taking your windsurfing to the next level.
THE CARVE AT A GLANCE
115, 125 & 135 – our all new Carve line up with three redesigned shapes and sizes. The Carves go fast but stay in total control, jibe beautifully, plane easily and then just keep on planing. Inspired by our test-winning freestyle board the Ignite we added extra volume in the tail while featuring an extra-long flat bottom shape that helps to increase the ease of planing. It is exciting to describe how well these new boards ride.
THE CARVE IN DETAIL
The 115 is a little speed bomb that flies over crazy chop with full control. The shape is relatively wide providing accelerating power, while the thinned out rails carves up jibes. This machine is for everyone that likes higher wind freeride and might even want to join the DEFI wind or other fun events. Enjoy this explosive smooth riding sensation.
The 125 is where it all came together, surprising us with its early take-off into a fun ride with high acceleration. The board can be driven onto the fin for that free sensation while the ease of entering a high speed jibe is just as good as the acceleration out of the jibe. It bridges light and medium winds perfectly well. Simply as good as it gets and with that extra spice.
CARVE 135, 135 RTF
The 135 has a quite some genetics from the 2020 Carve 133 which won 2020 magazines test by good margins.Super early-planing and an amazing top-end speed despite its generous width. Thicker rails forward helps acceleration out of jibes and the recessed deck keeps the board in full control when the wind picks up for real. It is a board that gets you way more water time than any other freeride board, yet delivers the whole fun factor when fully powered up. A highly recommended board choice.
MORE COMFORT IN STORMY CONDITIONS
We added an optional middle positioned back footstrap, helping storm riders with comfort in the most critical chop.
WATER DROP TAIL
GRAVITY CONTROL SYSTEM
In 1994 Starboard introduced the Gravity Control System to windsurfing.
The Concave deck shape creates a lower center of gravity for the power generated through the rig.
You will feel more control while riding in rougher conditions and through jibes.
The 135 Carve Wood Sandwich is available with a normal TT box and also with 350 gr heavier Ready-To-Foil box option.
You can foil with the Carve135, if you however really want to get into foiling, the Foil Freeride and Foil X are better options to learn and progress on.
DRAKE SLICK FOOTSTRAPS
The Drake 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.
OUR BEST VALUE OFFERING
The new Starlite Carbon Technnology option is the first board technology in the world to combine the performance of a full carbon skin in a value package. For lighter weight, more performance and a crisper riding sensation.
Jean Louis Colmas started the development of wood sandwich boards in 1985 and by 1994 we introduced his technology in our production.
This co-lab tech led to multiple world championships titles across all disciplines in Windsurfing and it remains a Starboard original.
The 0.6 mm Australian pine laminated deck increases impact strength while its natural unidirectional fibers creates awesome reflex sensations.
With 500 kg/m3 density, the Pinewood absorbs minimal resin leading to a light board and crisp ride feel. The entire board is wrapped in a 3mm PVC sandwich mummy for long term durability and that solid feel under foot.
The wood is covered with a protection film to hinder the sun’s UV impact over time.
