LIGHTNING FAST

We have developed an all-new Surf Slate line for 2018. The outline became a compromise between the full-on parallel rail shape and a classic surf outline. The nose and tail are pulled in for a better maneuverability and reactiveness. This is immediately noticeable in bottom turns as you can fine tune the trajectory once the board is railed up.

Since we narrowed down the nose and tail, we made the boards slightly longer to compensate for the effective rail line that is engaged throughout a turn. Stable, fast and reactive are the main strengths of the new Surf Slates. Use the extra speed to glide across flat sections of the wave or to hit the lip with full power. The bottom shape features a V entry that flows into a deep single concave ending with a subtle V right at the center fin position. This ensures smooth lift and an easy rail-to rail transfer.

For 2018 we have developed rail construction with visible Alutex fiber on the PRO boards and Basalt fiber on the Wood Edition boards. Alutex on the PRO boards adds the abrasion resistance but it doesn’t add stiffness as we didn’t want to alter the flex pattern of the boards. Basalt on the Wood Edition boards adds strength, stiffness and abrasion resistance. Basalt is 100% volcanic rock, a natural and sustainable fiber. We switched all the resins in all of our boards to BIO resin and are removing EPS from packing to make another step forward towards creating sustainable boards.

The boards feature a 5 fin option and come with a RTM thruster set-up. The new Surf Slates will bring out the best of any conditions you can find out there, a true all-round high performance shape.

All the Surf Slates feature a tailkick and a centered pad arch
