Starboard Carve IQ Flax Balsa

Starboard's iconic plug and play freeriders. The CarveIQ Flax Balsa construction comes with a Ready To Foil re-inforced foil box. The box are reinforced to withstand heavier loads associated with foiling. They use thick, high-density PVC sheets and thick carbon fibre walls.


These three sizes are extra short for more control in highwinds, making them more reactive and maneuverable. The tails are wide, making them more stable at speed with more power to go upwind a wider wind range overall. To improve jibing and liveliness at speed, more Vee across the bottom was added in the development.

131  –  141

Sizes designed for easy planing. They are longer with smooth profiles that glide on to the plane effortlessly. The squash nose aims to reduce deadweight at the tip of the nose without affecting the ease of getting planing. As result, the boards have more high wind control and feel more reactive. More Vee throughout the board improves jibing and comfort through chop.


The CarveiQ are all designed with a thin profile, a Starboard innovation first introduced in 2010. A thin profile lowers the board’s center of gravity, making the board more sporty, more stable, more controlled and more reactive.


The wider tails help make the board more stable at speed, with more power to go upwind.
All Carve iQs use a Tuttle Box for a strong and reliable fitting of the fin.


Cut-aways reduce drag created by the wider tail. They give the board its high top speed and ability to quickly accelerate.


Delivered with a Drake Freeride Power CNC G-10 fins that have a thin tip for speed and control. The upright rake and thicker base of these fins provide maximum stability and traction. After testing over a dozen fins, our test-riders unanimously found no other freeride fin that matches the speed, control, jibing and durability characteristics of the Drake Freeride Power

The CarveIQs are available in Flax Balsa, designed for the lightest weight but also the lowest carbon footprint; Flax Balsa. Natural end-grain balsa covers the bottom of the board, providing the board with its overall stiffness and reduced weight. The full sandwich deck uses natural uni-directional flax fibres with carbon stripes to reinforce and stiffen the most stressed sections.
All CarveIQ Flax Balsa technology comes with a re-inforced Ready To Foil Box.
