What was SUPERbrand thinking when they came up with this name? This board is the opposite of slow like a slug. I guess maybe it looks like a slug? It’s definitely meant to be ridden on sluggish waves, so maybe that’s where the name came from.
Check out Clay Marzo making it look easy in some baby waves on Maui:
The first thing you might notice about the Slug is the hip in the tail. This is done so the width of the tail can be a lot thinner than the width of the board. The hip also adds pivot to the board, and you can see Clay pivot some 360s in the video above.
Low rocker + lots of width = a great board for smaller or mushier waves.
