Duotone Surfboards 2022


Session SLS 2022

The Session SLS absolutely excels in bigger waves, but it should not be overlooked for the smaller ones too. This classically shaped stick is the go-to board of choice for the rider who values drive and grip above all else on the wave. If you want to engage that rail and know 110% it has your back when the lip is above your head, this is it. For 2022 the grab rail has been removed in order to put a little more volume under the heel area to further enhance the flow of the board through the turns. This also creates a slightly more domed deck shape, which offers a less locked-in feel and a more nimble ride.

With the classic outline and the pintail, the Session SLS is a carving machine that rips in whatever size waves you venture out in, and it will keep on delivering no matter how big it gets. The shape also lends itself well to high winds and choppy waters, making it the perfect storm hunting board. You get maximum control in all conditions and a confidence-inspiring ride that won’t ever let you down. If you are looking for a board that stays engaged and connected through warp speed carves in heavy situations, the Sessions SLS is the only choice.

Voke SLS 2022

Strapless freestyle has exploded onto the scene of kiteboarding and now makes up a huge part of the market. Riders like Airton Cozzolino have turned it into an art form, and he’s arguably made the discipline his own. Airton and Sky Solbach created the Voke SLS to ensure it stayed ahead of the rest of the pack and to ensure Airton remains at the top of the podium. The unique shape gives the board the ability to deliver explosive pop even in really choppy conditions, without catching the nose on take-off or landing. The flat rocker and relatively parallel outline make it incredibly fast and stable.

The powerful wide tail provides the perfect springboard for explosive pop. In a discipline where every millimetre counts and the slightest mistake can prove incredibly costly, you need a board that will deliver every time. The Voke SLS is the board to choose for your strapless moves; it’s forgiving yet packed with pop and performance. Whether you are learning your first trick or if you are Airton Cozzolino, the Voke SLS is the only weapon you need in your arsenal.

Wam SLS 2022

The Wam SLS is one of the most popular wave boards in the industry, aimed at a wide range of riders from advanced to pros. With the ability to handle any conditions, it’s a genuinely versatile all-rounder. For 2022 Sky Solbach went back to the shaping room to develop a radical new shape for the timeless classic. The goal was to update the board and keep it at the cutting edge of high-performance kitesurfing.

With ample volume under the front foot for maximum speed and flow, the Wam SLS has an increased rocker, more outline curve and a brand-new rail shape for radical top to bottom surfing in almost any conditions. The Wam SLS is at home in everything from small onshore waves to bigger pumping down-the-line surf. This machine is the go-to high-performance shape for our team riders competing on the GKA world tour because of its fast, lively and agile feel that offers a dynamic and exciting ride no matter the conditions. More than that, though, it is an effortless board to ride, making it perfect even as a first-time wave board too. If you are looking for an one stick quiver killer that won’t hold you back on the water, the Wam SLS is your ticket to success.

Whip SLS 2022

For many years the Whip has been at the pinnacle of the compact shaped surfboard market. The advantages this style offers are numerous, the small shape makes it easy to turn the board aggressively in the pocket, it's perfect for the latest freestyle tricks, and it makes travel a breeze. This year the Whip SLS got a significant make-over; the goal was to bring this already cutting-edge board right up to date with the latest hydrodynamic shape. The board features increased rocker, a slightly narrower nose outline, lower, rounder rails and a new "wide bump-squash" tail design.

The new Whip SLS is quicker and more agile when transitioning from rail to rail, much more reactive and also able to operate in a tighter transition in small waves. The compact shape makes the Whip SLS the ideal board for strapless freestyle pros and seasoned surfers. The Whip SLS is an extremely well-balanced board with incredible handling, but still provides explosive snap off the top with the ability to turn in a very tight radius on steep sections. The Whip SLS isn't defined by the conditions of the day or a particular style of riding; it can handle it all and take you to incredible heights; all you need to do is jump on board.

Fish SLS 2022

The Fish SLS has quickly become one of our best-selling boards - everyone who rides it falls in love. Designed by Duotone shaper Sky Solbach, the board is designed to maximise every session you have at the beach. Featuring a retro outline inspired by the classic Fish tail form of the ’70s, but with a totally modern twist, it is sure to ignite your soul on those days when you might have stayed at home. The wide point is quite far forwards, and the rocker line is relatively flat; this gives the board the ability to deliver lots of speed and drive, even when the waves are weak.

It also helps it to get going early, so the Fish SLS excels in not only soft waves, but also light winds too. The real key though, is the rail and tail shape and the channels underneath; these allow the board to be really dynamic on the wave, and you can easily get vertical on the face. The snap off the top is always predictable, but very much on the side of aggressive; the harder you ride the board, the more it delivers. At its heart though, it’s an incredibly easy board to ride; while some shapes require you to tune your riding style, everyone feels at home on the Fish SLS almost instantly. All our team riders have a Fish in the quiver, and so should you; from 1 foot to 6 foot, the Fish SLS is the most fun you can have in the water.

Hybrid SLS 2022

If you are looking for a convertible board that you can shred in the waves, pull the latest strapless freestyle tricks and then add a foil to when the wind drops, the Hybrid SLS is where it is at. Starting with our renowned Whip shape, the Hybrid SLS model has a few design tweaks to ensure it is the ultimate crossover with only little compromises.

There is a unique 4-point foil mount; this ensures the foil is always in the perfect spot, reduces weight and doesn't affect the board's flex. The bottom channel has also been modified to allow it to work better when the foil is attached. As a hydrofoil board, the performance is fantastic, offering a stable platform with plenty of control. When you take the foil off, you have the same incredible shape, except for a couple of small tweaks as the Whip itself. This means you don't just have a hydrofoil, but also one of the best wave boards on the market.

Perfect in small to medium-sized waves, the Whip Hybrid SLS loves to get vertical and performs well when tight in the pocket of the wave. The ultimate quiver killer in a perfect package, an incredible freeride foil board, a competition-winning wave board, and a supreme traveling companion too!

The deal breaker is the proprietary fin boxes. Needs to be genuine Future fin boxes or no deal. Same goes for any other brands.
