The 2012 XSR Slalom boards have been based on 24 years experience of board building and design.  The XSR model is a full Carbon, CNC Milled core, and a full veed bottom with a slight double concave in the nose to mid section.  This aids turning and smooths the ride at full speed.  The wide point is forward of centre to add volume and surface area where you need it, and to counter the reduced length.  We are reducing surface area as much as possible from the wide point toward the tail.  A parallel rail planshape gives greater control and speed, both in gybing and top end.
The bottom shape is as clean as possible, with NO cutouts ,wingers or double upwind rails.  It just has a veed bottom with max depth vee and double concave  just forward of centre.  There is also a very small amount of flat panel vee out the tail to stop sideways slip at speed.  It has a 700mm straight in the tail rocker, with a 17 cm nose rocker for better nose clearace in chop.  The board can be pushed hard in real world choppy conditions.  The rails are profiled fairly low at 25mm apex.  This again is for greater control in high speed turning, without risking the rails planing out of the water during high speed gybes.
We always use a 3 mm deck concave to stop the lift from air flowing across the deck.  This slighty lowers the mast base, which lowers the centre of effort from the sail to the board.  The concave also stiffens the carbon deck, and acts like parabolic stringers that follow the planshape 122mm from the rail.

There will be two differant types of constuction our standard model ,CGC [Carbon/ S Glass/ Corecell] and our PRO model FCC  [Full Carbon /Corecell] top and bottom lamination, without cheap water sucking wood veener.

All cores are CNC milled, and the boards are vacuum bagged 5 times into our rocker moulds during each stage of construction.  This ensures that there is no flex or spring in that production stage.  All resin and carbon cloth is weighed and templated, to ensure that no extra weight is added to the construction.  All carbon cloth is prepluged off the boards on to our lamination tables.  It is then tranfered to the board and vacuumed down on to the Corecell without blog, which adds weight, and reduces the chemical bond between the lamintaion and the Corecell hard foam.  The boards are all painted with the best 2k PPG paints, with an extra layer sprayed on the rails to better protect them.
