STEALTH BODYBOARDS SPEED DEALER 4.0 POLYPRO CORE 2022 MODEL

This model is an evolution Stealth's Zero Slot Hull Channel Model which they did a limited release on earlier in the year.

Here's the quick back story on how that evolved:

Stealth have been incorporating the Vax Trax Rail system into a lot of their board models, and the feedback has been super positive, but find it still definitely performs best in hollower waves or steep walls where maximum hold is required, particularly when paired up with a Channel system.

Unfortunately, we don't always get to surf those waves as often as we'd like, so we wanted to create a board that'd help Stealth's riders take their high performance bodyboarding into a bit more average waves! Not "spin to win" in junky waves as such, but to increase performance in 2-3 foot beachies with a bit of push.

The simplest way to balance this out, was to remove the channels completely, and go back to the Old school "Flat Bottom", but  Stealth thought they could do better.

Stealth went pretty deep on the research looking at boats, planes and surfboard designs.

What they've ended up with a large single-hull concave which we've named the Zero Slot Hull Channel. This bottom contour is based on the theory of a "planing hull" which as the name suggests, gets you planing earlier and easier, giving exceptional down the line speed off the weakest of sections.

A lot of Stealth's inspiration came from the Bob Simmons designed Mini Simmons surfboards, which have since evolved and are evident in a lot of the modern day Daniel Thompson (Tomo Shapes) and Slater Designs surfboards.

So, they've incorporated all this into the Speed Dealer 4.0. Few key changed from the original samples:

   -  Instead of the Clipped Crescent, they've upgrade to Chisel Tail
   -  Added Deck contours for a bit of extra comfort

VAX TRAX RAILS – A graduated concave on the bottom rail, starting in the mid-section and becoming more prominent through the tail section of the board. The steepness of the rail combined with the curve allows a greater angle to drive off, decreasing the loss of speed. It allows you to hold a higher line on the wave face, so you now have the tool to run higher, faster lines and steeper angles.

Zero Slot Channels – Slot Channel
The Slot Channelis a large single hull concave named the Zero Slot Hull Channel. This bottom contour is based on the theory of a "planing hull" which as the name suggests, gets you planing earlier and easier, giving exceptional down the line speed off the weakest of sections.

A lot of Stealth's inspiration came from the Bob Simmons designed Mini Simmons surfboards, which have since evolved and are evident in a lot of the modern day Daniel Thompson (Tomo Shapes) and Slater Designs surfboards.
