  Quatro 2008: Wave

So the original custom board brand continues in their quest to influence the production board market. Always at the forefront of wave board design, Quatro rely on their ecliptic mix of team riders to give them feedback on the latest wave trends and designs. So for this year it’s all about short lengths and more volume!

This gives a quicker, lively turn on the wave or as Keith Teboul puts it: “The fresh balance between a drivey enough board and a turny enough board” Get that!

Features

Bottom: V upfront into a slight double concave below the mast track running into a single concave around your stance.

Construction: Biaxial Glass is used being x3 stronger than standard glass.

MFC Foot Pads: NEW this year with grooves that makes for a more comfortable, grippy feel.

Quatro 2008: Twin Fin Limited Edition

These boards have been developed over the last two years with Kauli Seadi and Pio Marasco from Maui Fin Company. You can read all about Twin Fins in our special feature next week which includes video interviews from the designers. But in the meantime let’s go over to Keith Teboul:

  “Riding these boards is … different, to say the least. They allow you to finish your turns all the way resulting in a continuous motion from the bottom turn to the off the top, coming back at the white water and hitting it.

The two fins put the rails in the water sooner and keep that rail in the water throughout the whole turn. We developed an entire new thickness flow for these boards to accommodate what the twin fins are wanting to do.

We would not say these boards are better than a single fin, but you will definitely feel a whole new sensation, doing turns you’ve never done before.

The direction that wavesailing is going is strongly influenced by a desire to surf and slide the waves. Bringing the style found in surfing today to windsurfing is the new way and these are the boards for it.”

 

Features

Bottom: V upfront into a slight double concave under the mast track running into a single concave around your stance.
