The Slayer has been a favorite for 10+ years. From time to time we’ve been asked if we could make it a little looser off the top and bottom. Thus, the Slayer 2. The Slayer 2 has the wide point pulled back towards the midpoint. This tends to pull in the nose and give more curve to the tail section. It has slightly more rocker on both ends and has a light double barrel vee (Slayer 1 has a single concave).
We recommend that the Slayer be ridden 2 to 3 inches shorter than your daily performance shortboard but the Slayer 2 should be ridden at approximately 2 inches longer. The foil is more balanced as opposed to the Slayer which, has a fair bit of volume in the front third of the board. For those of you who remember the Traveler, the Slayer 2 is in between that design and the Slayer. The Slayer 2 is a modern step-up.
