Tabou 3S Ltd. 2015
More and more recreational sailors are looking for that magical one board that they can take to the beach any time and in any condition to get out on the water and have fun. The 3S is the Swiss army knife of the windsurf world. You can freeride, bump and jump, bust out some freestyle and smack some lips on these boards and they just don?t care!
Arguably one of the best all-round boards on the market, the 3S just gets better and better.The key word to describe these boards is EASY. The boards just do what you want them to do; you don?t have to work hard to make them turn, they know how to do it. They jump onto the plane with ease and rocket to the moon on the jumps. One board ? do what you want!

The S3 is the one board that I will always take with me on the road around the UK. The conditions can be so different from day to day but I know I can still always go for a sail on a 3S and have a great sail. Whatever style of sailing I choose to do, the 3S is there to support my demands.
For 2015 the 96, 106 and 116 have all got a tune up! It was a really difficult process to create something fresh and new without moving away from the core values that the 3S stands for. For these boards we keep the double step tail cutout that accomplishes this task with great success. 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. In the end we fine tuned the rocker-line to free the board up even more. Then we also changed the bottom shape to get more power in marginal conditions. All this, together with a new outline, help achieve more stability and better turning. The 3S continues to lead its class with a new compact feel for 2015.
This range covers any rider looking to have fun on the water. Available in 76, 86, 96, 106and 116 liter sizes.
- The double tail cutout gives better top speed and acceleration, shorter radius turns and more versatility.
- Winger swallow tail outline provides a perfect blend of power for planing and surface distribution for speed and versatility.
- CAD optimized mega-smooth rocker for planing, speed and versatility.
- New bottom shape: more power in marginal conditions and more control in high winds.
- New outline: more stable in the curves; better acceleration.
All shapes are available in the ultra light and extreme rigid LTD construction. This gives a significant increase in performance. The boards glide earlier and respond more directly.
If you are a first-time jibe master or jumper, or a heavier wave riding warrior, the 3S boards make everyone happy. Fun, easy, fast and friendly you will be impressed in all conditions!
