The go-to board – The CabSav2
The CabSav2 has become the go-to board that everyone seems to be able to agree on, because it caters to so many types of conditions and skill levels. We predict just like the original CabSav, the CabSav2 is so versatile it will stay on the best seller list for the forseeable future. Word of mouth has made this model an overwhelming favourite with so far in 2017 75% of my orders being for this model. Nearly all of these custom orders being in conjunction with Karboload Technology.
The CabSav2 is an extension of the Cab Sav in length, roughly 4 inches, the outline is pulled in so the nose and tail widths have come in (although still a fuller outline) and the deck/rails are normal, full (in contrast to the Cab Sav’s concave deck). In essence more versatile than the Cab Sav as the conditions get bigger, but also favours those who prefer a bit more length. The CabSav2 still has the trademark flow and speed of the Cab Sav in all conditions, as I’ve used the same rocker and rail line combo making it incredibly easy to surf..
Beginners can learn to surf on the CabSav2 and it still works really well under the feet of intermediate and professional surfers in excellent waves. The CabSav2 is designed to help you paddle and catch more waves ensuring a better all round surfing experience. It comes standard with a 5 fin set-up, so can be ridden as thruster or quad.
The CabSav2 works great in conjunction with Karboload Technology. Karboload is the only carbon/epoxy glassing layup out there where its two unique attributes, Parallel Performance (on the deck) and Y-Flex (on the bottom), work seamlessly together to best utilise the performance attributes of carbon. Our Karboload boards utilise carbon in this layup to best enhance it’s potential and flex/recoil properties. It is also the only tech to effectively manage this across all three planes of a surfboards flex: longitudinally, torsionally and transversely, but more importantly in the right places along the board.
Speed and response through rail transitions and turns is even and smooth and directly hinges off the surfer’s foot pressure and centre of gravity. A major bonus is it is not an exclusive small-wave tech. Our testing has shown it maintains performance above 4 foot with the correct manipulation of flex through different fibreglass layups. Importantly too, the carbon is utilised on the outer layers of deck and bottom- so that it is truly in tension when the surfboard flexes (in internal carbon laminates, the amount of tension and therefore energy feedback, decreases parabolically towards the centre of the core as the surfboard flexes).
