Grip 4 or Grip 3?
Don't worry, Duotone have you covered no matter if you are a quad or thruster wave rider, in all conditions!

Our GRIP SLS boards are constantly evolving designs and constructions to ensure we are continuously at the forefront of development yet with over 40 years of experience. We call them World Cup Wave boards as they are engineered to satisfy the best of the best on all kind of spots around the globe, from jumping-oriented side-on conditions like Pozo to down-the-line groundswell conditions like Hookipa.

During development, the major inputs came from two-time PWA Wave World Champion Victor Fernandez and the highest-ranked future Wave Champ contender Marc Paré. These guys are not just 2 of the best wave sailors on the planet, but they both have a very contest oriented riding style. Therefore instead of demanding super specialised and extreme shapes they always aim for:

> Boards that are super balanced and easy to control in all kind of conditions without taking on a life of their own, to score maximum turns and jumps
> Boards that are super versatile to sail and allow front- and back foot riding to get the most out of each wave even when the conditions are changing
> Boards offering a maximum wind range to avoid being forced to switch boards during the heat


 - The GRIP 4 with its Quad fin configuration gives you maximum drive and grip for committed rail to rail turns, even in XXL waves

 - The GRIP 3 has a slightly better acceleration due an efficient rocker with a lower-drag entry, which is especially helpful in jumping conditions. The Thruster fin configuration allows for earlier tail release for tighter/slashier turns, even in non ideal waves


New for 2024 -

> No 5 multi-setup fin-boxes: this just adds unnecessary weight and drag and is always a compromise since every fin configuration requires a different board shape (bottom and rail shape, outline, scoop-rocker line) to exploit its full potential. It also prevents the board from becoming tail-heavy/sticky. Plus finding a good working setup with 5 boxes is just the opposite of plug & play.

> The mini mast track reduces the weight in the critical nose area. It also reduces the risk to misplace your mast base while still providing just the right amount of length adjustment for all riding styles and sail sizes.

> The mini side fin boxes no longer offer any adjustment to prevent misplacing your fins. Now all adjustability for different riding styles and sail sizes is done through the center fin(s) only - simple and lightweight!

> Our exclusive layup based on over 40 years of experience got refined by DUOTONE chief board construction and QR manager Vasin Siritho.

> Even the artwork got weight optimised by minimising heavy PVC stickers.

> All these efforts add up to a noticeable weight reduction of 400-500g (depending on the board size) without compromising our bombproof durability: STRONG-LIGHT-SUPERIOR!



> No compromise quad shape - the GRIP4 shape is 100% tuned to the quad fin set up

> GRIP World Cup wave designs - all GRIP boards are designed working all around the globe from groundswell Hookipa to onshore Pozo conditions. 

> Mini mast track and slot boxes - weight saving plus maximum plug and play through less options

> Premium Sandwich technology - consists of 50 individual parts and components and is our lightest semi custom technology
