The Tabou Manta is a very fast board, dedicated to pro racers. It is the board hardcore PWA professionals need to win world class competitions. If you love speed sailing, but a dedicated race and slalom board may seem unfriendly and may be a bit too much, then the new 2011 Manta FR is perfect for you. This board offers the perfect mix of racing speed and freeride maneuverability. It is a very reliable and efficient freerace board. It has a similar design as the Manta, but it features a user friendly, rounded outline which makes it easier to handle and assures a very smooth glide. At the same time, the wider outline assures optimal stability and better planning potential.

The Tabou Manta FR features a fast, race style rocker line which generates impressive top speed and blistering acceleration. This rocker also provides very accurate control and allows the rider to head upwind without hassle. The narrower tail provides optimal release and allows the rider to turn fast whenever he wants. Fuller rails make the board a bit more forgiving at higher speeds by improving overall maneuverability. A special bottom shape absorbs chop to keep the rider comfortable and also provides better grip.

The Manta FR uses a smart volume distribution which keeps it steady on the water surface. Due to this feature, the Manta FR can be used in various wind conditions. It is fast and agile in light winds, and even faster in high winds. The board features multiple insert positions. This way, the rider can tune the board to suit his specific needs. The footstrap positions can turn the Manta FR into a race or freeride board, according to the rider’s style. Tabou has engineered the Manta FR using a Carbon Biax Sandwich technology. This construction makes the board light, stiff and very responsive. This board is perfect for speed addicts who love fast drives.

In overpowered conditions this board rocks. It is fast, but also easy to keep under control. In flat water and good conditions the Manta FR is one of the easiest freerace boards to sail. The downside of this board is that it doesn't has a powerful bo...more
