Key Features

Duotone Slash SLS

High-performance small wave/freestyle board

The unique shape of the Whip SLS makes it the perfect board for the rider who likes to throw down the latest tricks as much as they want to carve up the waves.

Snappy Top Turns

The compact shape enables you to turn incredibly tightly in the pocket; vertical top to bottom turns are the speciality of the Whip SLS.

Incredible Speed Generation

The rocker line and channel on the board’s base combine to offer incredible speed, both on the wave and when riding on the flat; this is great for linking turns, catching fast waves, and popping huge tricks.

Innegra Shield

The Innegra Shield completely wraps around the whole board; this provides unrivalled protection from everyday knocks and scrapes and keeps your board looking fresh.

Cork Shock Absorber 2.0

Comfort for your feet, the Cork Shock Absorber 2.0 takes the pressure off your heels while providing perfect contact with the board to transfer your movements into the wave.

Carbon Beam

The Carbon Beam injects a high level of response and flex, making the board feel alive underfoot.

Details

Duotone Slash SLS

As the strapless freestyle and wave discipline is pushed into the spotlight all around the world with the help of the GKA World Tour gaining fame, many younger riders are taking notice. For the “Young Bloods” who would rather throw strapless front rolls and smash waves, this is the perfect board for their quiver. Designed by legendary shaper Sky Solbach, the board is a trimmed down version of the exceedingly popular Whip SLS. This shape is tried and tested and works perfectly in small to medium-sized waves and is ideal for getting airtime. The compact design lends itself well to younger and smaller riders too. Duotone will also be running Young Blood Camps again in 2022/23 looking to garner new talent among the sports youth. If your hero is more Airton Cozzolino and James Carew than a twintip freestyler, this is the board for you! The Slash features all the performance benefits of the Whip SLS in a smaller package for young up and coming rippers!

Cork Shock Absorber 2.0

Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.

Innegra is the reason for the predictable feel of a polyurethane surfboard, combined with liveliness, durability, dent resistance and incredible light weight. The weight reduction was achieved by replacing fiberglass with Innegra.

All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.

Light Team Construction
Light Team ConstructionLight Team Construction

We are using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!

Responsive Flex

Using bamboo in our surf boards, we take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
