SB18CIQF - 2018 Starboard Carve IQ Flax Balsa



Board Category: Crossover Windfoil Board

Starboard CarveIQ Foil – A plug and play Freemove - Windfoil Crossover Board
The Carve IQ foil is a Freemove Freeride and Windfoil capable design available in a wide range of size options to suit your personal windsurfing board needs. For 2018 this model combines 2017 AtomIQ with the 2017 Carve series for one name. In the Foil version it adds the versatility to try Windfoiling in a user friendly format. It's equipped with a Foil Box, that is reinforced to withstand heavier loads. The windsurfing dimensions include smaller sizes 124 and below are Freemove – so they have shorter wider and thinner structures to maximize planing, maneuverability and excitement. The shapes that have been modified from AtomIQ and are slightly shorter, wider tail shape and bottom shape. The larger 131 -151 are longer and narrower to provide a more of a passive planing experience that's easier for immediate success and less technical to ride = Plug-n-play. Verses the old Carve they are slightly shorter with a new bottom shape but share the same rocker profile. The nose shapes are more squash nose on the larger sizes to eliminate extra dead weight and maximize upper wind range control. All models of this series feature a Tuttle fin box now (AtomIQ were Powerbox in past). Windfoiling version is Flax Balsa construction and is equipped with a foil box.
