The ALL NEW FIFTY from Tabou is a cross sport board designed to be equally adept at fin windsurfing and foil windsurfing! So if you anticipate using your board for a mix of 50/50 fin and foil, this is the perfect board for you!
For FOILING, the board has a slightly wider, thicker, and more square tail shape, which allows you to get your back foot further away from the center line. This is a great setup for blasting around with faster freeride and race foils. It also has a nice domed deck, so no matter where you end up putting your footstraps, your ankles will be super comfortable. Lastly, Tabou has shortened the board a touch, so you'll have less swing weight when you're up and running on the foil.
For FIN windsurfing, the board's wetted surface tail shape and cut outs are actually quite similar to the Rocket Plus, so you can expect a super fast free race type of ride- locked and loaded blasting with a great balance of top speed and control!
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 0.6 kg 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!
