Naish Titan 110, Carve 111 or similar ?

Post by i.. » Thu, 13 Jan 2005 23:20:55


Hi,

Can anyone compare these boards? Any other ideas? I am looking for a
bigger board that will extend my summer sailing possibilities in
lighter winds with an 8m ish sail.

I weigh 72kg's and I am used to sailing smaller boards 100L or less
with a 7m as max size, I can gybe, waterstart & ride small waves etc. I
am looking for probably a 2003 or 2004 model as I can't stretch to a
new board.

I mostly sail in onshore costal conditions, similar to the south coast
of England. Looking for a loose board that can cope with a big sail
which is fun to blast around in a small swell.

Also what if anything would I gain with more volume say the Titan
125(6) or carve 121(3)? I don't know how well you can slog these very
short boards if the wind drops?

Cheers Iain

Hi Iain,
The Carve line is very versatile and well documented...
I've used them in many sizes for years...freeride and light air
wavesailing...

Carve 121:

110-120 liters provides ample volume for a middle weight , experienced
sailor to uphaul a 7.5m2 , if necessary...and to comfortably shlog in ,
if the wind dies...the key to extending the range of this genre of board
is to hook up with a loose fin...necessity is the mother of invention...;-)

Here's a couple of new contenders in this size range to consider if you
could stretch to a new board...

I had an awesome day yesterday on the new Exocet Cross 117...very short
board feeling...centered rear footstrap makes it great for jumping and
wave slashing...planes up early...very fast...definitely a winner...

Kevin Pritchard is calling it his favorite board...
I seem to recall Svein Rasmussen saying something similar...

http://www.star-board.com/forum/kevin_corner/

Fast , loose , versatile , comfortable , fun...
Scaled down Carve type, 45* bevel along the rail...short, a hair under
8', but plenty of meat in front of the mast track to tack...lots of
footstrap options...is not fin specific...
I've had awesome sessions with my 10" FreeWeed...
You're going to see quite a few of these boards on the water next year...

The HiFly Madd 115 is also worth a look...

Thanks.  I am also in the market for this kind of board, and almost the
same sailor type.
I have tried a Carve and a Madd (twin fins are great), but not in those
exact sizes due to wind conditions during demos.  Both great.  But I
like the exocet and the full deck padding!

if your biggest board is 100L, I would go to a 120L board so it's more
'different' and gives a bigger range.
