Test result:

A fantastic freeride board. This is the best board I have ever owned until now. I had already had other Tabou Boards, and had the chance to verify their high value. This one is another great product. It remains stable also in choppy conditions and at high speed. It is a very fast board. Both these characteristics are due to its low width (only 66 cm). And for that, I prefer it respect to modern and wider freeride boards. Anyway, its width is not that low to put you in troubles, making the board difficult to maneuver with. Better, its a vey good board to improve in power jibe and fast tack. Thanks to the light weight of the LTD carbon version, I can get planing very early (I need only 10-11 knots with a 6,5 m2 sails - I am 70 kgs)/Questa è la miglior tavola che io abbia mai posseduto, fino ad ora. Avevo già avuto altre tavole Tabou, e ho avuto la possibilità di verificare il loro valore. Questo è un altro grande prodotto. Rimane stabile anche in condizioni di chop, e ad alta velocità. E', peraltro, una tavola molto veloce. Entrambe queste caratteristiche sono dovute alla modesta larghezza (solo 66 cm). E per questo, io lo preferisco rispetto alle tavole freeride moderne e più larghe. In ogni caso, la sua larghezza non è così ridotta da metterti in difficoltà, rendendola difficile in manovra. Anzi, è una tavola molto valida per migliorare in strambata power e virata veloce. Grazie al peso leggero della versione LTD in carbonio, posso entrare in planate molto presto (mi servono solo 10-11 nodi con una vela da 6,5 m2 - peso 70 chilogrammi).
