The all-new 7S Slipstream is a one-board quiver that will adapt to a range of conditions from mushy beach breaks to surfing down the line point waves. This board is a true hybrid, both from a design perspective and by definition of its performance. OUTLINE: Front half resembles a modern fish and is great for generating speed and acceleration when driving off your front foot. The back half resembles a traditional shortboard with a refined outline and a forgiving round tail for smooth, yet controlled rail transitions.
CONTOURS: Subtle single-to-double concave with vee out through the tail delivers a balance of speed and flow over flatter sections, and responsiveness in hollow waves.
ROCKER: Low-to-moderate rocker is designed to offer immediate acceleration from the take off, and still allow the board to fit into more critical parts of the wave.
FOIL: Refined foil and the performance rail profile complete the design package by adding a very sensitive and responsive feel on the wave.
FINS: The Slipstream comes with an FCSII Reactor M thruster set.
Regarded as the most user-friendly hybrid model on the market, the 7S Slipstream not only makes performance surfing easy, but it will give your wave riding a whole new perspective
CARBON VECTOR TECHNOLOGY Carbon Vector (CV) construction delivers unmatched performance by harnessing the flex characteristics of epoxy and the strength of carbon. CV combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a distinctive carbon fiber webbing, (positioned on the bottom and around the rails). The carbon fiber webbing serves to evenly distribute tension across the entire surface area of the board to produce a lively, yet controlled flex pattern with remarkable memory recall. The biaxial fiberglass on the deck serves to add strength and also help prevent delaminating. CV boards feel fast, light and highly responsive in all conditions. Created by GSI to compliment a range of board models and designs, this construction has proven to have superior flex properties over our other board technologies by up to 20%.
