The Quatro Carve Pro has been radically changed from previous years to deliver a vastly improved experience for paddlers of all abilities and weights. The range sees the introduction of a new 8’8″ Carve Pro for heavier paddlers as well as a new 7’7″ board for advanced, professional and lighter weight riders.
The new Quatro Carve Pro simply accelerates quicker and has a faster top end speed than previous models, making turns more radical. The faster rocker also helps increase paddling speed, making it easier to catch waves and get into the best positions. This is especially noticeable in fast waves and crowded line ups. Speed is important in small and big waves alike and these new boards have lots of it.
The Quatro Carve Pro utilizes added nose lift in combination with a narrower nose, which helps when dropping in to prevent the nose from catching. Thinner rails aid in a looser feel, and a tighter turning radius. The new narrower overall width is faster, while a more shallow tail makes the the board feel smaller to enhance the surfboard feeling with more release on the top turn.
Stable Deck and Fin Options
The Integrated Stability Deck provides a stable ride. This greatly helps to reduce fatigue, especially with smaller tippy boards. The QuatroCarve Pro comes with a 3/4 pad. Thruster or Quad option allows a wide range of tuning. In bigger surf the quad option is ideal for more speed and grip.
The Quatro Carve Pro delivers a consistent feel through the range. Each board has similar surfing characteristics with some progression as the boards get smaller. The 7’7” is the most extreme board in the range, while the larger boards in the range are more forgiving and make it easy to surf, have fun and progress.
Each board in the new range was tested in a wide range of conditions in Hawaii, Califor- nia, South America & Europe. Speed is so important in small and big waves and these new boards have lots of it. Stability was also incredibly important to make these boards user friendly in a wide range of conditions, and reduce rider fatigue.
