The NuEvo is Starboard’s high performance surfboard style wave board that specializes in tight, butter-smooth rail turns with excellent rail-to-rail transitions and extra-tight top turns.
With soft round rails and flatter decks, these boards react like surfboards with all the characteristics of high-end windsurfing wave boards. The forward Vee and soft pads and rails dampen the effects of chop, making the NuEvos comfortable boards for general sailing.
The big novelty for 2015 comes with the introduction of the NuEvo 120. Slightly different from the other boards in the range with a very fast and straight rocker line and sharp rails in the front with a lot of tuck, it gets up and going early and quickly. The double concave running from the mast track to the tail and the fins set close to the rail keep the board loose and easy to turn; characteristics that have made this board famous.
The particularity of the NuEvo 120 is its fin configuration. A trailer fin has been added to boost upwind capabilities and to handle bigger sail sizes. Adding fin area through a third fin keeps the board looser than using larger twin fins.
James Hooper, NuEvo shaper and designer:
“With the NuEvo 120, in general sailing conditions with sails up to 6.0m², I would recommend using the board as a twin fin with the 17.5 Twin Surf fins supplied.
For ultra light wind conditions, use the trailer fin in the central position of the fin box for maximum upwind advantage.
For marginal conditions with larger sail sizes, try the trailer fin at the back of the fin box.”
