The Pocket Wave is the “ace up the sleeve”. This new range of Pocket
boards will bring the best out of anyone’s sailing, no matter their
level. So forgiving yet responsive, this board offers security to push
you to your limits even in the most challenging conditions.
Early planing, it gets you up and going through the break with ease,
allowing you to pick the ramp of your choosing and blast into the air
with solid pop, while the compact outline delivers excellent control in
the jumps. On the wave, the all new rocker-line and modified outline
shapes ensure smooth bottom turns with excellent drive and with a great
ability to use either front or back foot turning. The thruster setup
offers a surfy feel with slashy turns,and if you want single fin the
choice is yours!
We worked on getting these boards faster, looser and still easy for
this year. For that we designed a new range of boards from 102, 94, 86,
78L while keeping the 69 unchanged.We produced a new rocker-line and
bottom shape for even quicker acceleration and to accommodate diverse
sailing styles. A new outline with narrower tail section area, with new
improved wingers that bridge the gap between both the Tabou wave board
ranges.New fuller rail shape again increases the boards versatility
control in high speed bottom turns. A noticeable improvement in the 2015
Pocket will be its ability to be turned using a front foot surf style.
That’s not to say the new range well have lost any of the older
generation’s charm or attributes.
- New rocker-line: smoother planing, better acceleration.
- New bottom shape: more direct feeling in surf, more power to get through lulls; better acceleration.

Improved acceleration, very loose, high jumps. Keeps speed in the flat
part of the wave and control at highspeed in the turns.
- New fuller rail: more forgiving in the surf; improved upwind ability.
