A wave swung wide, the kind of which seems to draw an additional five guys into the lineup. Two drawn out carves, like gliding atop a perfectly placed train track, and no amount of goat thorns or broken glass could take the smile off of my face as I walked back to my car. In the ever changing recipe of surf craft, this board stands above and beyond those that I’ve ridden over the last few winters. Santa Anna groomed perfection and purple Surfline blobs don’t come around every day, this board will perform in any condition, keep it simple, surf.
For bigger and good waves its the best Ive ridden. Feels so confident and right. Love it.
Awesome board...on my third Slayer and it’s my go to when the waves start pumping. The extra volume up front gets you in quick and the tight tail inspires confidence when your hauling down the face in above average conditions. Only complaint is the same as some others....this board is made for better waves, but the glassing/durability is a bit light for its intended use. Either way, it’s been a magic carpet for several years and I’ll keep replacing it as need be.
I'm 5'9, 170lbs and the 6'0 has been my favorite stepup. I've owned two bc the first broke after only riding it twice. The second one broke after about 10-15 sessions. Lots of pressure dings too. It's the perfect step up but they are fragile for the conditions it excels in.
After years of searching I'm glad I found the Slayer. Perfect board for when the waves get good and no matter how hard you push it, it pushes back. As soon as my 6'1" dies I'm getting another one.
