Greg Webber on Super Lightweight Epoxy: “The SLX construction allowed me to get what I have been looking for in a performance range of boards; firstly, they are really light weight yet the SLX core has a lot of structural integrity which gives them a great feel on the wave”.
SLX Surfboards are shaped from high density EPS core. First they are shaped by machine (to 98% of complete) and then the final 2% is finished by hand.
Greg Webber Explains SLX
2008 Webber range also features deep double concave in the majority of the models. What is the effect of the double concave on a surfboard?
When we turn on a wave we use one rail at a time, so using full length doubles allows us to use one tighter concave at a time, which adds speed and grip. The depth is the same but it’s over half the width of a single, so the angle at the rail edge is much greater. The vee between these two barrels creates a kind of automatic clutch between turns, which gives a smoothness of transition that a single can’t get so easily. As a result it creates user friendly high performance.
What are the models in the SLX Webber range?
SLX has 4 updated models; The Webber Shortboard, The Afterburner, The Fatburner and The Spoon.
