Ultimate Race Performance.
The 2018/2019 eight new slalom shapes deliver the fastest, smoothest ride in the windsurf racing world. Twenty-five years shaping and racing experience, and the latest technology have combined to make the ultimate slalom board; with the four largest sizes coming foil-ready as standard. Our goal is to make the best slalom boards on the planet and with these boards we’re confident we’ve achieved that.
The 2018/2019 shapes’ reduced length, lower entry rocker and new cutout shapes result in a lower angle of attack for a silky smooth ride. Multiple footstrap positions give more personal tuning options, along with the eight standard shapes as well as custom sizing available. Our advanced CAD software has enabled us to take full advantage of the technical world of hydrodynamics; driving the current designs forward to bring you the ultimate high performance racing weapon.
If you want to win, there’s no better choice.
How do they perform and feel?
Extremely quick off the mark and onto the plane – then settle in for a high speed, dry, secure ride. The only limit to top-end-speed is how hard you want to push it; and with the deceptive ease of handling, you’ll be confident to ride to your edge and beyond. Rounding the mark will surprise you, with effortless smooth gybing and full control throughout your turn. Perfect for passing the competition and gunning it to the finish line.
Rocker lines are matched to board planform and intended sail sizes, for faster acceleration, higher top end and improved control. Increased thickness under the back foot plus higher shoulders in the rail profile only enhances these factors, with more power, better trim and a drier ride throughout gybes.
The recessed deck profile lowers the Center-Of-Effort of the rig, delivering exceptional control and moving the volume out towards the outer upper rail area; aiding early planing and providing a drier ride in rougher water.
Our refined Vee bottom shape means a super clean rail rocker, for unsurpassed release at the rail and improved initiation into gybes.
The ‘turbo tab’ on our proven RTS cutouts provides exceptional handling – not only at speed, but critically during gybes around the mark, enabling you to use the entire length of the planing straight down the centerline.
We’ve re-engineered construction, introducing some T.700 double bias carbon and lighter PVC sandwich; increasing the strength to weight ratio overall, while also increasing the torsional stiffness – improving the transfer of power from the rig through to the fin.
All this results in extra drive under foot, better acceleration, speed and control.

Recessed deck profile, delivers maximum rig power and unsurpassed control. Volume is moved out to the rail, promoting earlier planing and a controlled ride in even the roughest of conditions.
Our Reduced Tail Shape provides maximum efficiency and increased top speed. The introduction of All New Turbo Tabs deliver exceptional handling at full throttle and super smooth gybes. Pure Performance Design.
Hand Crafted excellence. Made in New Zealand. The inside of your board is where the carbon composite magic happens. Fine tuned performance from the inner core to the finish line.
Our Gore-Tex vent plug on the boards tail is self breathing. You’ll never forget to remove or replace your vent plug. Touch free, no hassle, just focus on your sailing.
New enhanced footstrap stance layout with multiple insert positions for optimum handling and comfort under pressure. Combined with an improved ergonomic rail shape, for extra drive, better acceleration and control at speed.
We aimed to design a slalom board that had as close to foil performance as possible with reduced drag, along with the benefits that a modern slalom board delivers in terms of drive and power – I’m stoked with the outcome.
James Dinnis -Shaper
By far the best slalom boards to date. I always have a vision and feeling on how boards should feel and perform and the new range delivers completely. First of all they look awesome, and once you leave the beach and get onto a plane, you immediately feel the smooth ride and acceleration, which is important for starting in a slalom race. The smooth feel then translates into a very easy and forgiving jibe, with steady precision and a clean line. Top class boards with all the right functions.
