Freeride is a relatively wide concept and as you will realize when you read the reviews the different boards offer quite different characteristics.
Passive and forgiving boards with auto-pilot mode
The Exocet Sting 124 is a passive and forgiving board with an auto-pilot mode. The board gives you excellent support in the jibes while being quick to get back on to the plane. The Exocet Sting is a really god board for beginners and intermediates.
Top end performance if you are skilled enough
The Fanatic Hawk 120 and Starboard Carve 121 are active boards that require more input from you as a rider. In return the boards give you a more challenging characteristics and a higher top-speed…, if you are skilled enough to squeeze the top-end performance out of the board.
Tabou Rocket 125 – Best in test?
The Tabou Rocket scores incredible well in almost all performance categories such as ease of planing, speed and top-end control. The Fanatic Hawk 120 and Starboard Carve 121 are faster, but the Tabou Rocket is the fastest board in difficult/over powered conditions.
The choice is yours!
