The Highwind Slalom is a full-blooded slalom board. My aim with designing the boards was to make them fast yet easy to ride. Speed comes from control, so with the soft rails and a fairly parallel outline the board can really handle everything you throw at it. Thanks to the tuck around the front foot the board jibes as if on rails and will deal with chop like no other.
I also added a small tail kick to make sure that the board can always accelerate, and to help prevent the nose from sticking on downwind runs. So if you want to overtake below somebody, the board will not tail-walk with the increased board speed.
A lot of effort has gone into making this board easy to ride. The relationship of the foot strap position on the board to the fin placement is designed to prevent you from getting overloaded on the back foot. The board rides with pretty even pressure on both back and front foot.
