You’re unlikely to see too many of Taranaki (New Zealand) shaper Carbon Art’s designs on British shores this year, but keep an eye on team rider Jack Hunt or go see Tris at OTC Weymouth to try one out…

2010/11 Carbon Art Wave. New Shapes, New Graphics, 2 Year Warranty.

Carbon Art is excited to announce the release of our 2010 wave range. An extensive amount of work, testing and tweaking on the waves of Taranaki and Maui has gone into our entire range. All three of our wave shapes have been fully refined to give you better performance and more benefits than ever before. The sheer smoothness of the Wave Vee (WaveV) puts you in control 100% of the time, the power and responsiveness of the Wave Single Concave (WaveSC) is more than impressive and the varied style of turns the Wave Thruster (WaveTH) offers is a huge amount of fun.

Along with the shape refinements we’ve been researching and testing new materials to give you the best possible performance and value for money. The end result is the integration of Innegra fibre into our leading edge composite construction. Innegra has delivered amazing results in our testing, especially in the form of increased durability, allowing us to now offer a 2 year warranty on all new waveboards! There’s also an added bonus, it’s made from recycled plastic using a green manufacturing process; an important issue for us here in New Zealand and worldwide.

We’ve learned a lot about the thruster fin setup over the last few years with the development of the WaveTH and other prototypes. This experience and understanding has enabled us to now offer thruster box setups as an optional extra on the WaveV and WaveSC. It gives you the ability to fully personalise your board, tuning it to your sailing style and local conditions, and expand your sailing experience by exploring the multi fin concept without going to a specific multi fin shape.

To coincide with this year’s big developments we’re also introducing a completely new look exclusive to the wave range. The new graphics range combined with our 5 different board colour options really gives you the freedom to individually customise your style on and off the water.

Here’s a run down of each of the 3 models and the refinements we have made.

Wave Vee

Wave Vee

This is our most versatile of the wave range and will perform well no matter what conditions are thrown at it. A true pedigree and at home anywhere.

(1) Refined nose rocker + increased volume under load bearing area =Earlier planning

(2) Refined rocker = Faster + better control at speed

(3) Softer rails forward of the mast track = Smoother initiation into turns

(4) Refined rail and vee profile =More drive thorough out turns.

(5) The introduction of super tough Innegra cloth to replace glass = better dampening, flex properties and ding resistance = stronger and a 2 year warranty

(6) Optional thruster boxes = more personalisation and tuning options

(6) New Graphics plus existing choice of 6 base colours = more customisation for you

Wave Single Concave

Our down the line specialist, really lets you go anywhere on the wave at short notice. Get into the critical areas and crank some powerful turns, lends itself to a real surf style of riding.

(1) Lower nose rocker + increased volume under load bearing area =Earlier planning

(2) Refined rocker and + increased concave between fronts and back feet = Faster + better control at speed

(3) Softer rails forward of the mast track = Smoother initiation into turns

(4) Deeper concave and refined rail profile =More drive thorough out turns.

(5) The introduction of super tough Innegra cloth to replace glass = better dampening, flex properties and ding resistance = stronger and a 2 year warranty

(6) Optional thruster boxes = more personalisation and tuning options

(7) New Graphics plus existing choice of 6 base colours = more customisation for you

Wave Thruster

Our multi-fin specific board. It offers new school style of riding, making the most out of smaller mushier waves with super fast explosive turns.

(1) Refined nose rocker + increased volume under load bearing area =Earlier planning

(2) Reduced tail width + increased concave between front and back feet = Faster + better control at speed

(3) Softer rails forward of the mast track = Smoother initiation into turns

(4) Deeper concave and refined rail profile =More drive thorough out turns.

(5) The introduction of super tough Innegra cloth to replace glass = better dampening, flex properties and ding resistance = stronger and a 2 year warranty
