    Nice videos Manuel!
    I really like the Tabou with the reworked nose. My daughter has a similar Tabou.... Maybe a new trend is born?

    What model is yours? This is a DaCurve, it's *tiny*. 54.5cm wide, 220cm long. Factory volume at 85 was already smaller with the nose, now without, it likes to roll, nose dive and tail sink!
    So not great for a light wind board but amazing for medium to high winds. Feels totally safe throwing it around.

    The nose was chopped off before I acquired it ! I did have to reinforced the nose after hitting a log, working on backloop landings and hitting it while trying forwards!
    Now it seems good...

    Anyway, the best board I've ever had, I wish I had its bigger sister... or maybe the pocket of the same year for a bit more volume out back.

    It's a 2006 Da Curve 73l, 52,5 cm wide. It was a great high wind board in its time for me and my daughter has sailed it for over two years now without the nose. And I also did many repair jobs on that chopped-off nose...

    But for euro conditions I think there are now better alternatives available. She will get her first new board (a trifin HDD Witchcraft Haka ST) in a couple of weeks so that she can progress faster.
