This test, amongst many others, was featured in the June edition of Windsurf UK, available by subscription here!
Starboard Carve 141 Wood: “Still a benchmark board in this category”
Length: 251 cm
Starboard say their “Plug ‘n Play” Carve range is “fast, exciting and fun, while delivering their best performance regardless of rider skill”. Available in Carbon, Wood or AST Tufskin constructions. You can buy the same outlines as the Carve in their entry-level GO boards in AST Tufskin with added full EVA deck grip.
Outline: Wide rounded nose, fairly straight rails but tail pulled-in radically to a rounded squash tail
Underfoot: Despite being 250 cm it feels nice and compact and stable off the plane with plenty of float and deck area for easy tacking and uphauling.
The Freeride landscape’s changing, but the Carve is still a benchmark board in the category.
RECOMMENDATION: Experimenting with fins could bring further performance benefits across a range of water states.
