2014 Tabou Pocket Wave
We worked on getting these boards more loose for this year. For that we worked on the outline and especially the tail section. We removed some of the tail section area by making it a bit more narrow with some wingers to increase the versatility,control at high speed bottom turn, acceleration and the top speed.
Also we increase the rail thickness in the tail to make the board accelerate more quickly and drive upwind easier.
- New outline winger swallow tail and wide center area : acceleration, very loose, high jumps, keep speed in flat part of the wave, speed, control at high speed in the turns
- New rail: easy outline curve entry on front foot gives better upwind ability
- Mini tail flat rocker line : better water release, speed and very good upwind performance
- New bottom shape V to double concave : More grip and speed
- Slot box : lighter board less drag
EZZY Wave Tiger

2014 Tabou 3S
For a board to do it all, you have to be on top of your game as a shaper. I have worked hard to get these boards up to speed and feel confident more and more as we learn about what the riders of these boards are looking for. This year the 96 and 106 get the new change in shape engineered to get a better top end speed and remain ultra versatile. For these boards we are introducing the double step tail cutout that accomplishes this task.
In a straight line you get the advantage of less wetted surface giving you a higher top speed. When on a wave, when you force water to go on those two steps it works like a kick tail allowing the board to turn on a much tighter radius.

2014 Tabou Rocket
We concentrated on getting better performance while not loosing any of the easy side to these boards. To do this we used what we learned about outline and V distribution working with the team on the Manta. So to get more power we have reduced the V on the tail to get more power in low wind, we have increased the width of the outline around the front foot area while making the tail outline narrower. So we get great planing, great acceleration and very good top speed. We kept our signature Tabou nose double concave to get our famous “soft touch” over the chop that makes the boards so easy. We also kept our smooth rocker and rail foil distribution that makes this range so easy and predictable in the turns.
- Perfect Rocker for smoother planing, better non active planing balance
- Balanced V and concave: More acceleration, keeps you planing better through wind holes and generates more top speed
- More volume and wider in the tail: Better acceleration, more power in wind holes, better upwind
