The Black Box – Interview with Tiesda You

The Black Box from Starboard is not a wave board for all conditions. This board is built for small, mushy waves and light winds. We have met Tiesda You (Starboard Brand Manager and Chief Designer) at the tradeshow Boot Düsseldorf and wanted to find out more about the board.

    Where is that video of that guy ripping in ankle high waves? Would like to see that.

    sorry, but this is not a innovation from starboard. AHD has been offering the “seal” model since around 2008. I was riding my AHD seal 102 already some years ago im El Médano… 😉
