Catalogue excerpts

TABOU PHILOSOPHY We have a simple philosophy: build boards that make windsurfing more fun. To do this, we have a 3 part process: 1. Constant Testing in 2 Year Design Cycles We design and test new prototypes all the time, but we only makes changes to the production line when we know that the new boards are not just different but also better. We like to think in 2 year cycles. This means that every shape is tried and tested for at least 2 years before being released to the public, which guarantees that when any windsurfer rides on a new Tabou, he feels the difference. The testing process starts...

DA CURVE The professionals ask for two things in a wave board: to go fast and turn easily. Last year, we started from zero to create a brand new DaCurve that is fast enough to rip in onshore winds and mushy waves but also maneuverable enough to carve at Hookipa. This DaCurve is the board that Thomas Traversa used to win the PWA World Title. Graham Ezzy rides the DaCurve at Jaws: “I love the DaCurve 80 at Jaws because the board is so fast, which makes it easy to catch the massive waves.” WAVE FLEXLIGHT CARBON/ INNEGRA SANDWICH

• Tested on the North Sea, the Mediterranean, the Atlantic Ocean, Hookipa and Jaws • Flat rocker in two places for more acceleration and therefore higher jumping • Winger outline for more power in messy surf, more speed, and better upwind performance • Double concave bottom and flat deck work together so that the board turns radically • The full rails allow for freestyle tricks and the new-school wave moves • Five lightweight slot boxes allow the DACURVE to ride as a thruster or quad • Flexlight Carbon/Innegra construction for a board that is both strong and lightweight

Thomas says: “The newest DaCurve works everywhere. It is the one board I take with me when I travel.” 1. FOR EVERYWHERE: FAST ENOUGH FOR ONSHORE AND RADICAL ENOUGH FOR HOOKIPA 2. EARLY PLANING AND GOOD UPWIND 3. FAST CARVIN

POCKET WAVE The new Pocket is a modern wave board that is the result of 4 years of testing compact shapes. Originally we designed the new Pocket for weaker, real-world waves, but our team riders love riding the Pocket at Hookipa too. Even though it is fast and easy to ride, when pressure is applied to the backfoot during wave riding, the new Pocket turns radically with lots of speed. We tested every kind of nose and tail shape, and the new Pocket features our favorite combination: a double-diamond tail and a normal nose, for a mix of maneuverability and comfort. The short length and winger outline...
