Matt Adams The Slide 7’6″ Minimal Surfboard
This board combines the foam and float of a longboard, in a shorter, more condensed and agile shape.
The width and thickness of “The Slide”, which is very similar to the dimensions of a longboard, give you the glide and speed to catch waves easily. The fuller 23″ width makes this board super stable, so easier for you to paddle and pop up quicker. As a result, you catch the wave and pop up earlier which keeps you balanced and on your feet before the breaking wave gets too steep or fast.
The agility of this board comes from the rounded tail, which enables you to achieve a more rail to rail surf that is really loose on the back foot.
“The Slide” has been constructed as a 2+1 box and trailer set up. Ride the board as a single fin to cruise down the line on small clean days where most of your turning will be off your back foot. Or add the trailers for more drive, stability and performance.
An ideal set up for this board will be with a Maisch 5″ or 6″ Dolphin Fin for speed and drive, or a Maisch 6″ Cutaway for a looser, pivot type of ride. The best trailers for performance are the FCS G-XQ Quad Rears.
