Bourton Shapes The Modern Slick Review

What the Bourton Shapes site says about the The Modern Slick:
“The slick has been a stalwart of my tri fin range for more than half a decade and has seen its competitors trending fatter and wider- so it is time now for the slick to indulge and put on a few litres as well.

The rocker of the Slick has been my most curvy and lights up in hollow power and subsequently I have always maintained that if you have a good rocker- don’t mess with it, unless you want to change the DNA of the particular design.

Previously the Slick was marketed as a lightweight in the range sporting only a 4×4 diagonal glass job backed up by a 4 ply stringer. This time around I am using innegra strips top and bottom sitting underneath a single 4oz diagonal top and bottom. The innegra is a white glass and would not be visible unless it sits over a darker colour.”

What people are saying about the Modern Slick:
“The Bourton Slick model stood out as the board in my quiver that felt capable of performing in double overhead conditions, and it did just that. With the extra weight and pulled in tail, the Bourton held in smoothly through a range of different lines I was able to draw during a surf at a fast down the line reefbreak. I managed to drive it through some carves that felt insane and also find the exit out of some clean, throaty barrels.” – Monty on Tracks Mag
