Tabou Pocket Wave 2017
FOR WHO: NEW SCHOOL WAVE RIDER
1. EXTRA COMPACT FOR FAST TURNS AND EASY STORAGE
2. RADICAL TURNING IN ONSHORE AND SIDE-SHORE
3. FAST AND COMFORTABLE PLANING
The new Pocket is a modern wave board that is the result of 4 years of testing compact shapes. Originally we designed the new Pocket for weaker, real-world waves, but our team riders love riding the Pocket at Hookipa too. Even though it is fast and easy to ride, when pressure is applied to the backfoot during wave riding, the new Pocket turns radically with lots of speed.
We tested every kind of nose and tail shape, and the new Pocket features our favorite combination: a double-diamond tail and a normal nose, for a mix of maneuverability and comfort. The short length and winger outline make turning radically easy, which allowed us to use a very straight rocker so that the Pocket accelerates even when the wind is light or the current is strong.
Ross Williams: I love the new Pocket. The 87L works perfectly for me in Europe and Hookipa.
