Ultimate Race Performance.
The exciting slalom range introduces 8 new compact modern shapes for the 2016-2017 racing seasons, and is one of the most radical steps forward we’ve made since we joined forces with PMD (Phil McGain Designs) in 2005. Our goal was, and continues to be, to make the best possible slalom boards on the planet.
These new shapes are a direct result of 10 years of development, testing, refinement on the water and race performance data. Alongside this progressive evolution, we’ve been part of creating advanced CAD software that has allowed us to delve deeper into the technical world of hydrodynamics. This combination has driven the current designs forward, bringing you the ultimate high performance racing weapon. If you want to win, there’s no better choice.
So 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 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.
8 new compact high performance racing shapes 4 new rocker lines matched to board planform and intended sail sizes, faster acceleration, higher top end and improved control. 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 provides a drier ride in rougher water. New refined Vee bottom shape resulting in super clean rail rocker, for unsurpassed release at the rail and further improves initiation into gybes.
The new ‘turbo tab’ on our proven RTS cutouts provide 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 center line. New footstrap stance and layout. For optimum control and comfort under pressure. New improved ergonomic rail shape. Providing extra drive under foot, better acceleration, speed and control. New slalom graphics inspired by the Maori Taiaha – A traditional New Zealand warrior weapon.

Having developed, built and tested boards for over 20 years it’s always great to get to the final stages with a new shape and feel the improvements. But this year’s new slalom range has surpassed all my expectations, I’m more stoked than I ever have been and I know you will be too.
By far the best slalom boards to date. I always have a vision and feeling on how boards should feel and perform and the 2016 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.
