We have a brand new Rousa Gut Slider available for demo at Zak Surfboards – here are a few pics for you to check out of this pretty radical little shape. This is a design that Rousa has been refining over the past couple of years, a single board that can be ridden in a variety of ways & with a few different approaches.
Sitting somewhere between a mini-simmons, a bonzer and a bellyboard, this shape can be ridden standing up or prone with a number of different fin set ups. Both Zak and Rousa have ankle injuries that prevent them getting out amongst it on regular stand up surfboards and this shape has proved to be their anwer to keeping the stoke up. Wack a set of keel fins in this shape and you have a super fun speedy, small wave slasher. Drop a larger centre fin in the centre fin box and some bonzer side fins for a more pivoty feel – there are plenty of fin set up options to play around with on this.
