11.4.2002 CARBON ART FISH 
Looking 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.
See also Waveseries
The 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 of turns.
Deriving 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.

The 8'2 Freestyle Extreme is 250 cm long, 59 cm wide and is designed for awesome flatwater Freestyle performance with sails from 5.0 to 6.5.

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 !

17.9.2001 - CARBON ART LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE with updated 2002 product range.

- LATEST CUSTOM FEATURE ON WAVEBOARDS:   - "REVERSE VEE", which has 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.
