The all new Airush Slayer is a perfect cross between a Sector series board and a surfboard. If you like to ride strapless but want light wind performance then the Slayer is for you. The evolution of the Slayer has opened up an extremely fun aspect of kiting for riders who are not blessed with waves or stronger winds. The brekathrough comes with the step bottom, which creates incredible stability; this enables intermediate riders to ride strapless with ease, even at 60cm wide. The Slayer 54 serves up a compact and dynamic ride for higher wind and bigger air. Its the new style.
The Slayer features a Non-Stick Tail angled 45degrees to prevent the board from catching while riding the board fins first. This makes the Slayer extremely forgiving and skatey when learning new strapless tricks like 180s and shuv-its.
The duel step bottom found on the Slayer is positioned just behind the front foot creating a double planning surface. The board therefore remains neutral between the back and front foot adding more stability at speed.
The Strakes featured on the Slayer 54 and 60 channel water through multiple V steps which improve drive when turning. They also break water flow limiting the bounce under the nose when carving hard. These two attributes increase the comfort and control of the Slayer giving more mobility and movement for the this size board.
Exclusively on the Slayer board, the Arch Bar Pad gives a better grip and hold when riding strapless. This arch bar becomes especially convient when riding with the larger fins featured on this board.
Directional straps are included with both size boards.
