The Carve is Starboard's freeride board

Freeride boards are designed to be fast, exciting and fun, while delivering their best performance regardless of rider skill:

We call it Plug and Play. Wind-range and jibing performance are critical when freeriding. The new Carves, with their slimmer shapes and extra wide widths, are the class-leaders in wind range and they jibe beautifully in all manner of styles: from wide-arc power turns to pivotal back foot carves. With its stability, they even help you progress in your carve jibing skill and make uphauling a breeze.

8% slimmer design: The Starboard Carves join the evolution towards slimmer shapes: 8% slimmer on average in the midsection, the new slim Carves are extra stable and cover an extra wide wind range. They plane earlier, carry bigger sails and ultimately reach faster speeds than before - more often and more effortlessly: WindsurfJournal Freeride Test, Special '12 issue, Germany:

  • Planing: 10/10
  • Acceleration: 10/10
  • Top speed in low winds: 10/10
  • Top speed in high winds: 10/10
  • Top end control: 10/10
  • Maneuverability: 10/10
  • Keep planing: 9/10
  • Userfriendliness: 10/10

Key Features of the Starboard Carve AST Windsurf Board 151L:

  • Wide outlines coupled with a thinner profile forms the basis for each new Carve design.
  • The slim concept was applied to the Carve 121, 131, 141 when we transitioned from the 2011 model to 2012 model. The slim concept then followed on the 151 and 161 as we transition now from the 2012 model to the 2013 model.
  • So for 2013, all the Carves now follow the new Slim Concept: wider and thinner for a more efficiency. By making the outlines wider, the boards will have better low-speed stability: this is important when uphauling or completing your jibes for example.
  • By making the profiles thinner, these wider boards don't feel big - on the contrary, the lower center of gravity makes the board more responsive to foot- steering, quicker to carve and bite sharper into jibes.
  • The combination of width and thinness also increases wind range: on one hand, the extra width allows the rider to fit a deeper fin and a larger sail, giving it more light wind power. On the other hand, the low volume from the thin profile allows the board to be more controllable in high winds, using a smaller sail and a smaller fin.
  • Unlike the Futuras or iSonics, the boards remain generously long by modern standards. This allows for easier passive planing: the boards will glide on to the plane more easily and more gradually.
  • The tail area of the deck remains heavily domed so that the board remains comfortable underfoot, in any strap position and even outside of the straps. The Carves are very accessible and comfortable to ride.
  • In conclusion, the Carves are designed to offer an incredible range of performance but in one simple easy package
