2011 Starboard Evo Iq Wood
223 cm x 71 litres
NEW still in box, includes footstraps and fin. WAS $2595
The Evo IQ extends the adaptable wave board concept to include the famous flowing rides of the single fin Evos and the twin fin skatey style.
"On the wave face, it's all unmistakably Evo: flow through tight turns and project big aerials off the lip"
Supplied with a single fin and leaving the twin fin set ups as optional, the Evo IQs prioritise straight line speed and acceleration with a solid fin grip. Maximizing wave-riding performance in the widest variety of wind and wave conditions: the new Evo IQ. Extra versatile.
Starboard's new Slot Box: the new box system fundamental to the Evo IQ concept. Starting from a clean sheet, the Slot box is 70% lighter than the US box. This allows for multiple fin box configurations without excessive weight penalty. The Slot Box 13 has 3cm of adjustment room and current US based fins can also be cut to fit. The custom-manufactured bolts fit the same screwdriver as your footstraps, making them effective against sand, keeping the system simple and hassle-free.
Construction: Wood - extra light, rigid and with the test team's favourite feel.
Shape: Forward Vee that spirals into reduced vee between the feet and ending in a monoconcave in the tail. The forward vee increases the engaging rail's angle of attack when the board is carving, which creates extra drive into the turn. The monoconcave channels the water through the tail and allows for a flatter rocker for more speed and quicker planing.
The tail rocker has extra tail kick to keep the board free and loose. Evo rails are soft and rounded like surfboards - keeps the ride flowing and smooth.
Fish scale pad grooving - unidirectional traction. Grips when you need them to, helps to release when you don't.
New Deluxe straps by Drake - includes the convenient strap-size indicators.
Heel Bumpers - for comfort and impact shock-absorption
