Tabou Coolrider - well proven school board
The Coolrider is the perfect first-time board. And second, and third, and fourth…. Even though it is a learner board, it also works as a timeless fun board for lightwind days. Looking for a oldschool freestyle longboard? The Coolrider is right for you! Inspired by feedback from windsurfing schools all over the world, the Coolrider’s soft, wide EVA deck makes windsurfing easy. A handle on the nose makes the board easy to carry on the beach. There are also 2 inserts to mount a handle/footstrap on the tail. Rubber protects the board from rocks and drops. The construction of the board is virtually unbreakable. Once bought, it will serve for countless seasons! The Coolrider’s design works so that even though the board is very big, the rails stay relatively small to keep control. The biggest Coolrider board, the 230, features a double deck (thicker) in the back of the board to make a stable, buoyant ride still maneuverable due to thinner rails.
For the signature Tabou freeride feel, the Coolrider has deep front V (to make the board glide easy through chop) and a flat rocker. The dagger board makes going upwind easy. Mastrack is very long to adjust rig position from small kid's rigs (position at the back to make the board go upwind) to large sizes for heavy adults (position to the front). Each board is delivered with 4 footstraps. There are 2 positions to mount them. One quite to the front, close to the mastfoot. It is good for pre-planing training with harness hooked in. The further back position of the straps is suitable for first planing glides.
There are three sizes of the board. All of them feature a 34cm Power-Box fin (most popular standard making it easy to swap for a different one) and 4 footstraps.
- 230 liters with 1 meter width is meant for heavy guys. It’s very stable. Even a 110kg or heavier person can learn windsurfing on it. This board features "double deck" - tail shape of Rocket freeride boards on top of regular Coolrider deck, so position of feet on course is more comfortable. Thicker deck means also more volume, yet the rails remain relatively thin for manouverability. Features 62cm Allgayer daggerboard
- 190 liters is a medium size for adults. Features 62cm Allgayer daggerboard
- 160 liters is a board suitable for teaching youth and bigger kids. Features 52cm Allgayer daggerboard.
EASY SURF is introducing products from the French MANERA. Its beginnings date back to 2012 and although at the beginning company’s mission was to remain a brand that is focused on kiteboarding, but in recent years it has been increasingly more open to surfing and wake. This can be evidenced even by a fact from our own, Polish backyard - multiple Polish Champion in surfing, Kuba Kuzia, joined Team Manera in late 2020. Let's see what Manera have for us in 2021...
I remember that day as if it were yesterday. One of the most important events in my life. In the winter of 2001, exactly 20 years ago, I registered a business under the following name: "EASY-windsurfing". Me - a freshman, 25 years old, just graduated from economics studies, with some full-time job in marketing, no experience... But I knew already then - and it was probably at the end of my studies - that would want my life to be intertwined with windsurfing somehow.
EASY SURF Shop has officially become an import and distributor of the well-known and appreciated brand JP AUSTRALIA. The first boards were released on the market by JP in 1997. From the very beginning, it gained very good opinions from both professional and amateurs riders. Today we will check at what windsurf boards the JP AUSTRALIA team, led by the shaper Werner Gnigler, has prepared for us for 2021.
Today we present to you with a complete novelty designed by Fabian Vollenweider, the Tabou Fifty which we had the opportunity to test recently!
