One for my favorite lite wind boards was the Tabou Rocket 115 LTD. I and friends have had a several of these boards with no issues. My best friend is still ripping on a mostly white 2010. My last one was all black and it was pretty. After a year the board de laminated in the foot strap area and forward to the mast track. I'm not sure the color had anything to do with it but I'm not getting a dark colored board again...Just sayin..

Google Tabou Rocket 2021... to my taste... the graphics and colors are plane ugly. Funky greenish blue with random orange rectangles? Gosh...

I like having some underneath on the hull.

Big fan of:
- Sea/Ocean theme (shark, beach, sunset, waves, etc)
- Blue, white, and red (wait that's the French flag, haha)
- wood
- contrast bold
- full white rails, nose and tail
- like black straps bit with white dominant top cover

Actually what would you like to see on a board?


Love all that from the list above! Smile

I guess I'm not alone in having a big quiver from my past. Fifteen boards overall, plus a surfboard. Lots of old sails and masts too. It's a collection of memories.
