The SLICE is known for getting some pulses racing, designed as a strapless freestyle weapon for our top pro riders, it’s also an easy and intuitive board to ride in the waves! Standing out of the crowd of the compact shapes, the SLICE is ready to blow you away by its versatility and ease of use.
- Strapless Freestyle Weapon
- Early planing and excellent pop
- Control during aerial tricks
- Fantastic wave-riding abilities
The board has a straighter rocker and a parallel outline, which fades into a dynamic winger tail to increase its maneuverability. The squared off nose keeps the length to a minimum, and there are two sizes for you to choose from. The 5’3” is perfect for larger riders over 75kg who would usually ride a board around 5’8” while the smaller 5’1” is ideal for smaller riders.
Freestyle is a lot about control, pop, landing:
The volume and the thickness of the SLICE have been specifically tailored for kiting to ensure the highest possible level of performance.
Underneath you’ll find a single concave with central channel which has been extended and now runs along the entire length for more directional stability.
We’ve kept the rails of the board thin to allow you to hold a better edge and also to increase the pop, making freestyle tricks easier. The distinct kick in the rocker line around the fins has been emphasized to get more pop out of the board.
The nose is pulled up slightly to help nailing the landings while the long channel provides the stability required.
The board delivers plenty of speed, both on flat water, for tricks, and in the waves too. The flatter rocker line enables the board to carry itself through weaker sections of the wave and the thin rails and pulled in winger tail make for dynamic turns on the face. And the thruster fin set up offers maximum versatility across a wide range of conditions, while also making the board easier to use.
The SLICE is best suited to small and medium sized waves and excels when the conditions are onshore, and the waves aren’t too powerful. The increased speed offered by the board allows you to negotiate the wave without relying on its power as much.
For strapless freestyle riding, the compact dimensions make it very easy to maneuver the board in the air and swing weight is reduced. Even performing simple jumps is made easier, with a wide stance pop comes easy and the light nature of the board will help you improve incredibly quickly.
The SLICE will switch your level to “fast forward” mode!
The SLICE ESL takes advantage of its full bamboo construction to offer the impressive potential of the Slice shape in a simple package with excellent value. Built with two layers of bamboo on deck for durability, the boards come with a tail pad only for those after an original surfboard feel. Equipped some foot strap inserts, the SLICE ESL comes with a thruster fin set and the possibility to add a front pad as an option if desired.
