The compact format, the thin rails, the pronounced kick on the rocker and the profound channel on the bottom are the perfect attributes to strapless freestyle. The board brings a powerful natural pop, is easy to maneuver in the air, and offers soft and stable landings.
With its fairly parallel outline, the SLICE BAMBOO planes with ease and its upwind abilities are remarkable. With these straighter rails and flatter rocker, accelerations are easier and movement through the water faster and more efficient, even in mellow waves.
The thin rails also bring great control and smooth edging through the chop. Predictable and fun in surf, this board is incredibly accessible, and its compact shape makes it very easy to turn in the smaller waves.
The transition from rail to tail is soft, which makes the shift from edging to carving effortless and leads to easier turn initiations. Along with the rounded nose, the bottom’s single channel with a double concave all help maintain float during strapless tricks and offer better handling and more comfort in the waves.
The SLICE BAMBOO has an efficient and reliable bamboo construction, using the natural properties of bamboo veneers. This board is built with a full bamboo layer on the bottom and two on the deck as extra reinforcement for durability.
This board is available in three sizes: 5’1, 5’3 and 5’5. All are equipped with a tail pad, foot straps inserts, and a fin set of Futures F4 437 Thruster. Adding a middle and front pad is also an option if desired.
Accessible, versatile, and active in the water, the SLICE BAMBOO is great for riders new to directional, those looking for stability practicing transitions, and those wanting to do a little bit of everything like both smashing waves and performing tricks in the air.
It is also best suited for small and medium-sized waves and excels when the conditions are onshore and the waves aren’t too powerful.
