AS GOOD AS IT GETS!
Easy planing. Confident control. Autopilot jibes. The 2024 Carves deliver big on effortless planing, autopilot jibing and a controlled ride in any conditions.

The exciting new 2024 Carves deliver big on effortless planing, autopilot jibing and a controlled ride in any conditions. We never felt so accomplished about a board range. Each board individually shaped for the intended conditions and skill level. On the larger sizes, a long flat section makes for extra easy passive planing and a smooth ride to let you find the footstraps effortlessly. Midrange sizes carve like a small board, yet switching your stance and flipping the sail you have the confidence of a bigger board, thanks to a combination of thinned out rails towards the tail and thicker forward rails. The small sizes deliver a true sporty feel with higher top end speed and that extra bit of control you’ll need for windsurfing confidently in strong wind.

 

KEY FEATURES - 

> Extra efficient - the concave nose segment creates more lift, improving planing performance in light wind.

> Extra drive - enhanced deck concave creates a lower centre of gravity for the drive and power generated through the rig, it also keeps the board stable and planted while blasting in rougher conditions and through jibes. 

> Extra reactive - optional inboard stance with middle position back footstrap gives more rail-to-rail reactivity and control to the storm riders out there.

> Extra quick - inspired by our iSonic racing line, the new double-step tail improves planing and acceleration.

> Extra performance - carefully refined underwater shape at the tail maximises earlier planing while reducing drag at higher top end speeds.

> Extra easy - easy passive planing without any effort. Extending the tail rocker flat section forward on the Carves allows an easier acceleration to a more natural planing threshold, whilst maintaining planing glide through wind holes and reducing critical reliance on board trim. 

> Extra comfort - more comfortable for your skin, the Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO2 emitted during manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. 15% synthetic neoprene is retained to improve UV resistance. 

> Extra traction - under your feet the 10mm thick footpads feature a diamond grooving pattern, providing essential grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

> Extra control - Drake Freeride fin for great control. Blending flowing, natural turns with straight line efficiency and confidence, each Carve's fin is carefully specified and optimised to enhance the exciting and responsive performance. 

 

CONSTRUCTIONS

WOOD SANDWICH
LIGHTWEIGHT BOARDS DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP AS OUR LOWEST CARBON FOOTPRINT
Developed by Jean Louis Colmas in 1984, Wood Technology became Starboard’s trademark construction in 1995. Wood Technology remains a favourite for riders preferring more comfort, more control and the unique crisp feel of an original Starboard. It’s time to bring back this technology while reducing our CO2 footprint. Full wood sandwich lamination of 0.6mm Australian Pinewood, ensures durability and comfort in a good strength to weight ratio. Today’s wood is less visible in modern graphics; UV protected by fresh blue paint and stickers that compliment the natural grain with a really nice effect. A classy re-edition of a classic Starboard Original.

STARLITE CARBON
WHERE PERFORMANCE MEETS PRICE
We developed the Starlite Carbon Construction to answer our quest for a construction that would combine four crucial factors: Performance, Durability, Value and Low Environmental Impact. The result is a great combination, delivering strongly on all four criteria with direct, responsive onwater feel and no compromise on your riding comfort.
