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 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.
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
The waterdrop tail section allows for the combo of early planing and top end speed.
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.
STARLITE CARBON – WHERE PERFORMANCE MEETS PRICE
The lighest and highest performance budget-friendly technology. Thanks to its full carbon bottom and a deck built from 0.6mm Australian pine wood sandwich wrapped with Military grade-glass and laminated all with Bio Resin, Starlite Carbon offers an unprecendented level of high quality in a value package with excellent finish. Starlite Carbon technology feels especially crisp with extra high impact resistance on the deck.
