This 2021 Tabou Rocket was banged around in shipping and ended up with a few dings. The board has been professionally repaired by the legendary Donny Bowers and is watertight (never been in the water) and ready to go. Check the product photos to see the board.
About the Tabou Rocket:
The Tabou Rocket is fast, very early planing, has tons of wind range, eats chop for breakfast, and is super easy to get along with- this is Free Ride Windsurfing, Defined! These boards have been best sellers for years and years for a reason- they keep most anyone happy! With five sizes ranging from 105 up to 145 liters, there is sure to be a perfect match for you and your local conditions! Hop on, sheet in, and hold on!
The Rocket has a huge sweet spot, which makes it comfortable to sail with a large variety of sail sizes and types. Best match up will be with fast freeride sails, but the Rocket is fun to sail with anything from a wave sail all the way up to a multi cam race sail. Further, there are tons of foot strap options, including inboard and forward for folks just learning, and all the way back and out for those looking to max out the performance potential of the board!
There are two constructions available: Team Edition and LTD. The Team Edition utilizes a full carbon wrap over double PVC sandwich- this high end construction is super light and ultra stiff, providing the ultimate in response and feel. If you want the best you can get, get the Team Edition!
The LTD Version utilizes a fiberglass wrap over double PVC sandwich, still light and stiff but at a price that's nice! The LTD versions weigh about 0.5kg more than the Team edition, so you're gaining about a pound but spending about 12% less... So if you're stressing the dollar amount, go ahead and get the LTD- it offers incredible bang for the buck!
THE FREERIDE SOLUTION
The Rocket is a synonym for ease of use, control and speed in the world of windsurfing by now. A fine blend of controlability in rougher conditions, user-friendliness and performance allow every freeride windsurfer to enjoy the Rocket in a wide range of conditions. With a huge wind range the Rocket starts planing impressively early and passively, while it always remains quiet and easy to handle, when the wind picks up and the chop intensifies. A balanced shape leads to nearly effortless jibing, which allows you to keep the speed and accelerate after the jibe with ease.
