2011 Starboard Evo IQ
The introduction of the 2011 Evo IQ extends the adaptable wave board concept to include the famous flowing rides of the single fin Evos, and the skatey feel of a twin fin.
Maximizing wave-riding performance in the widest variety of wind and wave conditions: the new Evo IQ. Extra versatile.
Supplied with a single fin and leaving the twin fin set up as optional, the Evo IQs prioritize straight line speed and acceleration with a solid fin grip. On the wave face, it's all unmistakably Evo: easily flowing through tight turns and project big aerials off the lip.
Shape: Forward V that spirals into reduced V between the feet, transitioning to a mono concave in the tail. The forward V increases the engaging rail's angle of attack when the board is carving, which creates extra drive into the turn. The mono concave 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 to provide a smooth and flowing ride.
Single fin setting: straight line speed priority with a solid fin grip. Classic Evo performance.
Twin fin setting: the choice for fast, powerful waves and a skatey feel.
Starboard's new Slot Box: the new box system fundamental to the Evo IQ concept. The Slot box is designed to be extra light, weighing 70% lighter than a US box. It 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 and vent plug, keeping the system simple and hassle-free.
US Box Center fin: 8" US fin box fits most US base fins currently on the market.
