Starboard Black Box Technora 2014
The Black Box is not a wave board for all conditions. It is not about top speed. It is not about jumping. The Black Box is the board that excels in small, mushy waves and light winds.
Many boards are marketed for real-world conditions and real-world sailors. Dany Bruchs creation takes it a step further by offering a very short and wide shape with no excess volume that will create and hold speed on a wave like never before.
The Black Box is very short with a lot of width in the tail that carries through to the nose. The sharper rails help generate speed while the rocker provides maneuverability. These characteristics allow the board to quickly accelerate on the smallest and mushiest waves. This self-generated speed combined with the very short length will let the rider link together more turns with more speed when the conditions would normally only allow for one, if any.
A bigger Black Box is now available. At 107 liters, it offers that extra buoyancy for bigger riders, without losing any of the characteristics it is known for: self-generated speed, carving and looseness on the face of wave.
|The Black Box comes in a tri-fin setup; out-centered side fins and a trailer fin.|
|1) Extra-compact outline for maneuverability and thickness for floatability.
2) Completely different and modern graphics setting it apart from the rest of the Starboard range.
|1) Mono concave feeding into a flat double concave in the standing area for lift, quick accelerations and speed on the wave. Vee in the tail for a responsive feel when engaging the rails.
2) Extra-light Slot Boxes fitting out-centered MB Twinzer fins for easy rail-to-rail transfers and a MB trailer fin for tracking and drive.
3) Extra-wide square tail provides buoyancy and speed to make the most out of small mushy waves and light wind conditions.
