Quatro Freestyle Wave 95
V: 95 L: 240 W: 61

The ride: Quatro’s Freestyle Wave works great as an easy-sailing freeride board for progressional sailors with a modern hips-in stance, but in the hands of an advanced rider it has no limits. On the freestyle side, it planes up quickly with an efficiency that lets you ride smaller sails than other boards of the same volume. Tricks are easiest with sails in the low 5 m2 range while using the smaller fin. Changing to the larger fin allows it to hold up to a 6.0-m2 but there is a loss of some efficiency. It has the natural pop of a freestyle board that gets you in the air off the smallest of ramps. The only thing that makes you realize you are not on a true freestyle board is that the ride is far more smooth and stable through chop. Along with the two MFC fins, Quatro completes the package with new and improved MFC footstraps.

The jibe: The wave part of this board becomes evident in the jibes, as it’s willing to carve any type of turn. It rails over effortlessly and flows through a tighter arc than we thought it should. It maintains its speed and cuts through chop as well as any other board in the test. Whether you know how to jibe or are still learning, the FSW will treat you right.

The forte: If you look at the amazing things pro sailors are doing and say to yourself, “I want to do that,” even though you’re just getting going in the straps, then the Quatro FSW is for you. It’s a board that is easy and fun for recreational riders, yet works well for the more intense aspects of the sport.
