CARBON ART WAVEBOARD
up for grabs !!!!!
all hyped up for the major waveevent of this year. The Taranaki
Wave Classic will take place from 25.10.02-28.10.02. It will
be bigger and better, a huge expression session with lots of spotprizes,
a weekend of major fun up in Taranaki. We expect to see you in Taranaki,
wheter you are a beginner wavesailor or a pro !
Details will follow, you can also check the official event site
which is now operational.
for a waveboard which excels in lighter winds and smaller waves ?
The 7'10 (240 cm) Carbon Art Fish is perfect for smaller waves where
tight, snappy turns are required to make the most of the waves at
hand, whilst still retaining that classic front foot carving style.
Due to a combination of outline and rocker curve in the last part
of the tail, the Fish boards allow the sailor to load the back foot
during the second half of the turn, resulting in a shorter turning
radius and hence putting you exactly where you want to be!
The Fish boards work well in anything from high wind freestyle/flat
water to half to logo waves.

main advantages of the FISH boards in smaller waves are:
· Shorter length = Lower swing weight
· Wider nose = More surface area to climb onto whitewater, which is
great when doing floaters etc.
· More aggressive back to front foot transition = Quicker completion
ART FREESTYLE EXTREME
from the standard STYLE series, we have developed an extreme Freestyle
board, for the specialist freestyle sailor on flat water. In comparison
to our standard STYLE series, this board has a rounder outline, a
fuller nose and slightly different rails. The bottom shape incorporates
a concave nose section running to flat under the masttrack, and to
a V in the tail. The board is just above 5.5 kg's, with super early
planing ability and easy release.
8'2 Freestyle Extreme is 250 cm long, 59 cm wide and is designed
for awesome flatwater Freestyle performance with sails from 5.0
ART EXPRESSION SESSION
Unfortunately, the conditions
did not allow for a proper expression session on the weekend of the
16.-18. November. Everyone still had a good time, and the party/BBQ
on Saturday night was well attended. The brandnew Carbon Art waveboard
went to Peter Scriven from Queenstown. 40 entries shows that the Carbon
Art Expression session is a rather popular event in New Zealand and
we are looking forward to welcoming everyone again in 2002 !

ART LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE
with updated 2002 product range.
CUSTOM FEATURE ON WAVEBOARDS: - "REVERSE VEE",
vee forward of the mast track to help
initiate turns and provide a little release on the forward rails,
then the flat rear section gives much
quicker rail to rail time. This all results
in tighter snappier turns - great for softer or more shoulderier
waves. This option is available now on
all WAVE and WAVE XS models.
