Just as Goya are the world renowned sail brand, Quatro have the reputation for making the world’s most sought after wave boards. Quatro was started by a lot of the same people that made Goya sails and the two brands share a lot in quality, comittment to wave riding and team riders! One such team rider Levi Siver has already won this year’s AWT Pistol river competition on the new Goya sails and Quatro boards!
We have some lip salivating images and design qoutes for you to feast your minds on in the build up to the official release date of the new 2015 Quatro boards in August!
Quatro Windsurf 2015
The Quatro Pyramid was introduced for the 2013/14 season and seemed to break into a new level of wave riding when Levi Siver and Bernd Roediger took to their local spot Ho’okipa for the PWA JP Aloha Classic 2013 and took first and second place respectively with some out of this world wave riding! Both athlete’s were on the Pyramid. Quatro are so confident in this board that their description of it is bold and blunt: “The Pyramid will not pamper you and you will love it for just that fact. Nothing ever projected out of a tight turn like this board.” “You’re welcome to judge this book by it’s cover.” If you’re after the sharpest wave weapon for 2015 this could well be it.
The images above are of the all new 2015 Quatro Sphere. The idea in the Sphere is that it can rip all kinds of waves, at all kinds of locations, all around the globe. What shape is the globe again? Ahh now it makes sense. This board is supposed to be a ‘toned down’ version of the pyramid, yet it’s faster and grips harder! We love quatro’s version of toning things down! After a one board wave quiver? Here’s your answer for 2015.
Since it’s introduction to the windsurf world the Quatro Quad has won test after test, dominating the market reviews by countless magazines. The evolution of this winning formula is the new 2015 Quatro Cube. Quatro say: “This is The wave board, capital T. It can do it all and much more, it will enable You to do it all, capital Y. You will feel the difference from the first time you step on it.” Riding Quad finned boards redefined what we thought was possible on a windsurfer and this board is king of the Quads. Roll on 2015.
Quatro are very adamant that the new Tetra isn’t like any other freewave board on the market. In fact, the only reason Quatro call it a freewave is so that us normal folk no where abouts in the rest of the market this board sits. With Quatro’s undeniable wave heritage there is one place this board will truly excel against all other freewaves, on a rail, in a turn, on a wave. “No, it won’t go down the line like a pyramid, but that’s because it will hover above the point, timeless, while everybody else fumbles below.” It’s a user friendly wave board then, and that is something definitely welcome in the world of ultra high performance windsurf boards. What’s wrong with having fun the easy way? That’s what this board’s about and we can’t wait to try one!
Quatro SUP 2015
In a nutshell the first range of SUP’s the ‘Carve’ is all about laying it on a rail and hacking the fiercest most slicing turns you can on the face of clean or bumpy waves. Just under 30 inches wide you have a choice of 8′ and 8’4 and 100 or 120 litres. These boards are for those serious about their SUP surfing! Oh, and you can put a windsurf sail in it too for those lighter wind wave sailing days
The Glide range of the 2015 Quatro SUP’s is all about style and grace. Being Quatro these boards will still turn hard and carve the open face well, but with the added width 32″-34″ it should be an altogether easier experience. Think of the glide in the same way as the Tetra windsurf board. Built for the waves with user friendliness and ease of use in mind. Perfect for long summer sessions!
