The Tabou team is always looking to improve the riding experience of all sailors out there. That is why every single board undergoes through an extensive process of research and development before it hits the market. The new 2012 3S is a reliable and versatile all round board which can be used by freeriders, freestylers and wave riders without problems. Crafting a board which suits multiple styles was not an easy task, but the Tabou team has done it, and the new 3S really excels out on the waves.

The board is engineered using a user friendly rounded outline which assures a fast and smooth glide and allows the rider to use it in various wind and wave conditions. The softer rails assure top maneuverability and makes the board more forgiving in high waves an in high winds. At the same time, the smart volume distribution keeps it stable and makes it very responsive. The narrower tail profile makes the board very agile and significantly improves turning control, without affecting the board’s speed. The 3S is able to maintain a constant speed and accelerate quickly as it exits a jibe. Larger 3S models pack a bit more volume and can be used in flat water or in marginal wind conditions.

The board uses a single fin setup which optimizes power delivery and assures better grip at high speed. The board is also very comfortable due to the domed deck. The great thing about the Tabou 3S is that it reacts quickly to rider input and it is very easy to maneuver at all times. The board is available in standard and LTD editions. The standard model is engineered using a PVC full sandwich HD technology, based on an EPS core plus PVC, Biax Glass and Fiberglass layups, while the 3S LTD is built using a PVC full sandwich CK structure, featuring an EPS core complemented by Fiberglass, PVC and Carbon Kevlar layups. The LTD version is more rigid and provides better overall performance.

This board nails every gybe and planes super easy. It is also fast and comfortable. This model has a narrower tail which improves the drive and the turns in waves. With this board I can mess with all styles and conditions. I'm very satisfied with it....more
