1/19/09
Subject: I LOVE my TAC!

Hey Wardog! Happy New Year!
Been meaning to tell you how many compliments I get when I have my TAC Drive out to play!

Compliments on and off the water. Other cars coming up alongside me as I drive to sneak several peeks at this “FPG/Floating Piece of Gorgeous”!

Thank you to, you, Guy and Adam for the aloha received when purchasing both my Naish Mana & my TAC drive & the ‘how to’ tips for rooftop transport.

I need to remember to keep the advert materials you passed to me ,in my car, so I can hand them to everyone who asks where I got my TAC. One man said, “Now, you’re leaving that with me, right?”. I said, “Nooooooooooooo, but I’ll tell ya where to get one!”

With Appreciation,

The Starboard SUP fins get an upgrade this year…added value…

We introduce the new Starboard composite Hexel fins in cool tinted black finish as standard for all SUP boards other than the SUPer’s. Our plan was to also have composite side fins integrated into the program. However after testing of various side fin set ups and further the stiffness’s in the thruster fins , it was found that the side fins with more flex were actually better suited to our boards.

A smoother initiation into a turn and arc all the way around was very clear. The larger volumes and thicker rails of the SUP boards obviously react differently to that of traditional short boards , which most surfboard fins are designed for. Going back and forth with testing it was found that the flexi fins were simply better. Throughout the range varying sizes of center fins and thrusters are used. Differences in length width and volume obviously requiring varying fin surface area.

For the smaller sizes, (7’11/8.0/8.5) a thruster with M’5 fins up front in combination with a Drake cool Hexel 19cm centre fin is the perfect blend between drive, traction and acceleration while still being loose. The larger sized boards from 9’0 up gradually increase to counter the extra size and volume required.

The exception being with Whopper, and Hero who’s immense width actually suited having smaller centre fins with larger side fins. The selected injection molded side fins are made from the stiffness derived from PA+GF30%…
