Tabou Coolrider 2011
Windsurfing is a spectacular extreme sport, which is not difficult to learn if you have appropriate gear and guidance. Entry level riders that wish to pick up the basics of this sport need user friendly and reliable boards and sails. Tabou encourages all people to start learning windsurfing and provides them with a dedicated entry level board to help them do that. The Coolrider is very forgiving and stable and a perfect tool for the your first “steps” on the water. The board is crafted using an AST technology, based on a very thick fiber with foaming resin structure.
This structure makes the board durable and light and requires a lower production cost. Due to this feature, the Coolrider is available for a very decent retail price. The board features a full EVA deck which keeps the rider comfortable throughout the entire windsurfing session. Another advantage of this deck is that it prevents the rider from suffering injuries in case he falls and bumps the board. The board packs plenty of volume, so it feels really stable and floats very nice. The smart volume distribution also allows the rider to use this board in less than perfect wind conditions. The user friendly and rounded outline allows the rider to handle the board without hassle in at all times.
The wider outline also provides better planning potential when needed. A smooth rocker gets the rider going upwind very easy and improves overall control. The upwind tracking potential is also improved by the use of a simple daggerboard system. The Tabou Coolrider has a very smooth glide. It is easy to control and allows the rider to have fun while learning the secrets of windsurfing. It is one of the most popular boards used by windsurfing schools, resorts and camps.
