CARVE iQ 2020
AS GOOD AS IT GETS
Smart freeride boards intelligently designed. Everyone wants a board that goes fast with total control, jibes beautifully, planes easily and then just keeps on planing.
Welcome to the all-new Carve and Carve E: an exciting new range for riders who want the future of freeride now.
THE CARVE AT A GLANCE
The original Gravity Control System was introduced by Starboard as a revolutionary concept and has helped propel our iSonics and Formula boards to multiple world titles.
The 2020 Carve boards adopts the same system, making your sail more vertical for better control, improving jibing performance by providing more rail pressure, providing more grip, more power and more control while carving. The center of gravity is lowered so you feel locked in, stable and ready to accelerate with every gust.
The secret to a whole new level of freeride performance: a 15 cm extended flat section in the rockerline. This gives a longer, more efficient planing surface that helps get you planing, keep planing and accelerate more with every gust.
OUR BEST VALUE OFFERING
Available in the Starlite technology, crisp and sharp and adds the durability of a tank. It uses 0.6mm Australian pine wood with glass fibres and a Carbon-Innegra perimeter rail band to combine premium technology and a quality finish in a value package.

CARVE iQ 2019
104 114 124 131 141
AS GOOD AS IT GETS
Plug and play freeride. Maximum performance, minimum fuss.
104 – 114 – 124
These three sizes are extra short for more control in highwinds, making them more reactive and maneuverable. The tails are wide, making them more stable at speed with more power to go upwind a wider wind range overall. To improve jibing and liveliness at speed, more Vee across the bottom was added in the development.
131 – 141
Sizes designed for easy planing. They are longer with smooth profiles that glide on to the plane effortlessly. The squash nose aims to reduce deadweight at the tip of the nose without affecting the ease of getting planing. As result, the boards have more high wind control and feel more reactive. More Vee throughout the board improves jibing and comfort through chop.
