SMALL TO MEDIUM WAVES/STRAPLESS FREESTYLE
Absolutely new for the 2023 season for all Young Bloods is the Slash, a purpose-built grom edition of the Whip SLS designed for smaller riders looking to maximise their performance on the water. Perfect for strapless and wave riding, the board is ideal for youngsters wanting to get into the discipline and fantastic for riders hustling for podiums and everyone in between.
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!
