WHIP SLS small to medium waves/strapless freestyle.
Are you looking for the ultimate small to medium-sized wave board that can also perform all the latest freestyle tricks with ease? The all-new Whip SLS, Strong Light Superior, has you covered! For many years the Whip has been at the pinnacle of the compact shaped surfboard market. The advantages this style offers are numerous, the small shape makes it easy to turn the board aggressively in the pocket, it’s perfect for the latest freestyle tricks, and it makes travel a breeze. This year the Whip SLS got a significant make-over; the goal was to bring this already cutting-edge board right up to date with the latest hydrodynamic shape. The board features increased rocker, a slightly narrower nose outline, lower, rounder rails and a new “wide bump-squash” tail design. The new Whip SLS is quicker and more agile when transitioning from rail to rail, much more reactive and also able to operate in a tighter transition in small waves. The compact shape makes the Whip SLS the ideal board for strapless freestyle pros and seasoned surfers. The Whip SLS is an extremely well-balanced board with incredible handling, but still provides explosive snap off the top with the ability to turn in a very tight radius on steep sections. The Whip SLS isn’t defined by the conditions of the day or a particular style of riding; it can handle it all and take you to incredible heights; all you need to do is jump on board.
FISH SLS smaller waves/classic surf
If you want to make every session count, the Fish SLS is the board you need; it excels in small to medium waves, offering power, control and the ability to shred and have fun even when waves are not perfect.
The Fish SLS has quickly become one of our best-selling boards – everyone who rides it falls in love. Designed by Duotone shaper Sky Solbach, the board is designed to maximise every session you have at the beach. Featuring a retro outline inspired by the classic Fish tail form of the ’70s, but with a totally modern twist, it is sure to ignite your soul on those days when you might have stayed at home. The wide point is quite far forwards, and the rocker line is relatively flat; this gives the board the ability to deliver lots of speed and drive, even when the waves are weak. It also helps it to get going early, so the Fish SLS excels in not only soft waves, but also light winds too. The real key though, is the rail and tail shape and the channels underneath; these allow the board to be really dynamic on the wave, and you can easily get vertical on the face. The snap off the top is always predictable, but very much on the side of aggressive; the harder you ride the board, the more it delivers. At its heart though, it’s an incredibly easy board to ride; while some shapes require you to tune your riding style, everyone feels at home on the Fish SLS almost instantly. All our team riders have a Fish in the quiver, and so should you; from 1 foot to 6 foot, the Fish SLS is the most fun you can have in the water.
WAM SLS all-rounder, small to medium waves
If you want a high-performance board that can handle any kind of waves you throw at it, look no further than the all-new Wam SLS, Strong Light Superior. Competition capabilities in an easily accessible package.
The Wam SLS is one of the most popular wave boards in the industry, aimed at a wide range of riders from advanced to pros. With the ability to handle any conditions, it’s a genuinely versatile all-rounder. For 2022 Sky Solbach went back to the shaping room to develop a radical new shape for the timeless classic. The goal was to update the board and keep it at the cutting edge of high-performance kitesurfing. With ample volume under the front foot for maximum speed and flow, the Wam SLS has an increased rocker, more outline curve and a brand-new rail shape for radical top to bottom surfing in almost any conditions. The Wam SLS is at home in everything from small onshore waves to bigger pumping down-the-line surf. This machine is the go-to high-performance shape for our team riders competing on the GKA world tour because of its fast, lively and agile feel that offers a dynamic and exciting ride no matter the conditions. More than that, though, it is an effortless board to ride, making it perfect even as a first-time wave board too. If you are looking for an one stick quiver killer that won’t hold you back on the water, the Wam SLS is your ticket to success.
VOKE SLS strapless freestyle
If strapless freestyle is your passion, you will know how important the right board is; the Voke SLS, the ultimate weapon to take out the competition and stand on the top step.
Strapless freestyle has exploded onto the scene of kiteboarding and now makes up a huge part of the market. Riders like Airton Cozzolino have turned it into an art form, and he’s arguably made the discipline his own. Airton and Sky Solbach created the Voke SLS to ensure it stayed ahead of the rest of the pack and to ensure Airton remains at the top of the podium. The unique shape gives the board the ability to deliver explosive pop even in really choppy conditions, without catching the nose on take-off or landing. The flat rocker and relatively parallel outline make it incredibly fast and stable. The powerful wide tail provides the perfect springboard for explosive pop. In a discipline where every millimetre counts and the slightest mistake can prove incredibly costly, you need a board that will deliver every time. The Voke SLS is the board to choose for your strapless moves; it’s forgiving yet packed with pop and performance. Whether you are learning your first trick or if you are Airton Cozzolino, the Voke SLS is the only weapon you need in your arsenal.
SESSION SLS carving in medium to big waves
When the swell charts turn black, it’s time to get on the Session SLS, the big wave charger that carves like it is on rails and delivers a confidence-inspiring ride no matter how big it gets.
The Session SLS absolutely excels in bigger waves, but it should not be overlooked for the smaller ones too. This classically shaped stick is the go-to board of choice for the rider who values drive and grip above all else on the wave. If you want to engage that rail and know 110% it has your back when the lip is above your head, this is it. For 2022 the grab rail has been removed in order to put a little more volume under the heel area to further enhance the flow of the board through the turns. This also creates a slightly more domed deck shape, which offers a less locked-in feel and a more nimble ride. With the classic outline and the pintail, the Session SLS is a carving machine that rips in whatever size waves you venture out in, and it will keep on delivering no matter how big it gets. The shape also lends itself well to high winds and choppy waters, making it the perfect storm hunting board. You get maximum control in all conditions and a confidence-inspiring ride that won’t ever let you down. If you are looking for a board that stays engaged and connected through warp speed carves in heavy situations, the Sessions SLS is the only choice.
