The extra width allows the rider to fit a deeper fin and a larger sail, giving it more light wind power. The low volume from the thin profile allows the board to be more controllable in high winds, using a smaller sail and a smaller fin. The boards remain generously long by modern standards. This allows for easier passive planing: the boards will glide on to the plane more easily and more gradually. The tail area of the deck remains heavily domed so that the board remains comfortable underfoot, in any strap position and even outside of the straps. The Carves are very accessible and comfortable to ride.
