The 7S Slip Stream CV Surfboard is a board for all around use made from durable yet performance oriented materials. The Slip Stream in Carbon Vector construction provides a light and responsive board in a shape that will speed down the line or make the best of mushy surf. This board is a true shortboard hybrid, both from a design perspective and by definition of its performance. The front half of the board 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.
Whether used as your go to at home or as a reliable travel board, the Slip Stream CV will be a fun ride in most conditions. The 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. A 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. The refined foil and the performance rail profile complete the design package by adding a very sensitive and responsive feel on the wave. 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.

CONSTRUCTION CV Construction
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 their other board technologies by up to 20%.
