We all rue those days when the swell isn’t quite up to scratch, and believe me, living in the little corner of the world where I do, those days far outweigh the decent days. Imagine if you had a way of maximising even the tiniest of swells and some way of generating ridiculous speed and the opportunity to practise your big airs. Well now you can! Renan “The Crow” Faccini has revealed a new winch system called The Slasher Pull, and it is the ultimate bodyboard accessory and one that you and your crew need to start saving for now!
Brazillian, Renan is a bodyboarder who doesn’t chase the competitive lifestyle, instead preferring to free surf and and experiment and has been working on The Slasher Pull since 2014. The result is an extremely portable, but incredibly fast winch, which allows bodyboarders to drive into the smallest of waves with big results.
I’ve been scouring the internet, and although it says on the Mafia Bros Youtube page that the Slasher Pull will be going on general sale soon, there is no clue to the price tag it will be carrying. One thing’s for sure and as the Slasher tagline says – “Flat days have never been better!” Check out The Crow demonstrating the Slasher Pull in the video clip beneath this article and let us know how you think this could change the sport of bodyboarding and would you be keen to give it a bang?
