The 2008 windsurfing board lineup by Tabou is really impressive. Tabou has thought at all the styles and riders and has created boards that will perform great for any of them. From beginners to pros, from casual riding to hardcore racing, the Tabou Boards handle all. The Rocket is a high performance board, fast, yet easy to maneuver and it is intended to take freeride style to a whole new dimension.

A wider shape and compact outlines makes the rocket very hydrodynamic. It glides smoothly and without drag through the waves and reaches an impressive speed. The board has plenty of volume which is proportionally distributed to create good floatability and stability. This feature also assures that the rider can power up the board easily in light wind. The great thing about the Tabou Rocket is that it has a multitude of foot straps positions. These positions make the board deliver more or less power, so it is suitable for intermediate to expert riders. The fast rocker line increases the speed of the board and assures that once it reaches to speed it keeps it constant for a long time.

The board has plenty of power for a high speed ride or for extreme tricks, but it is also very stable and easy to control. The double concave bottom shape increases the board’s stability and provides extra grip. No matter how fast the board turns and rotates it remains predictable and accurate. The rider can perform any move, without worrying about losing control even for a second. The fuller rails make the board easy to maneuver and assure a smooth cruise, even in high wind or wave conditions. The rider can experience a very comfortable ride due to the soft, easy to adjust foot straps and the new heel shock absorbers.

Powerful, yet forgiving, fast and controllable, the Tabou Rocket is a great choice for freeride. The board is available in 95 to 145 liters volume and 58x237 to 76x245 centimeters sizes and it offers great performance when a 4.2 up to 9.8 square meters sail is attached.
