The Tabou boards are guaranteed to offer top performance and quality. In 2011 Tabou has used a new construction and shaping technology to improve the riding experience of all sailors out there. The new Rocket board blends power with top control and it is ready to take freeride to a new level. The great thing about this board is that it holds the power to suit hardcore and advanced riders who love extreme sessions, yet it is user friendly and can suit less experienced riders who love fast cruises too. The board features a “plug and play” design which allows the sailor to start riding from the first moment it sets feet on the deck.

The smart volume distribution keeps the board stable and provides excellent performance in various wind and wave conditions. The rounded, user friendly outline assures a smooth glide and provides high maneuverability at all times. Two new board sizes are available in 2011. The Rocket 145 has a longer outline which assures better longitudinal stability and increased planning potential, while the Rocket 125 uses a higher double concave design in the nose area to deliver a very smooth glide. The 145 works very nice in marginal wind conditions, while the 125 can handle bump and jump conditions with ease. The special hull design also assures a fluid drive through chop.

The fast rocker line makes the board really snappy and fast. It also propels it upwind very easy and keeps the rider in control at all times. The board features multiple strap positions which can accommodate beginner to expert riders. Expert riders can tune the board for extreme speed, while less experienced ones can tune it for better stability and maneuverability and enjoy a relaxing cruise. The Tabou Rocket is constructed using a PVC full sandwich technology. This structure assures a balanced strength to weight ratio and makes the board very responsive.
