DFA 2013

DFA 2013

The DFA got a complete make-over this year. The wheel base is tighter with a narrower body and concave to make it more nimble and responsive. With a shorter weelbase we could add a kicktail.

The 1.2” rocker and deep tub concave keeps you onboard regardless if tucking through a tight sweeper or freeriding switch. The gaspedals for extra traction and grip while doing slides or standups are now in both front and back, perfect for regular and switch standies! They are located on the outside of the concave so that no precious concave is lost.

    hey! the kicktail is usefull? i wanna make ollies and kickflips

    • Slipstream

      Hey Yeoe!
      The kicktail is highly usable in our opinion. Ollies and kickflips are possible (if you have the skills, this is not a shortboard ;-)).
      Good Luck!

    how is this board at lower speeds? i want to slide but no in high speeds

    • Slipstream

      yeoe – Sounds good, looking forward to that!

      asdasd – This is really a matter of personal preferences, but for sliding in lower speeds you should probably take a closer look at The Hammer. This board will do the job, but is in our opinion more suited for more aggressive riding in higher speeds. Good Luck!

    i have a slipstream wedgie right now, will the DFA be easier to slide with at lower speeds?

    • Slipstream

      lolol – Using the same trucks and wheels, The DFA could be easier to slide. Definitely at higher speeds, at lower speeds depending on your skills. Check out The Hammer as well, a really easy slider at lower speeds!

    is the wheelbase mesured from the inside of the mounting holes or from the middle of the mounting holes?

    • Slipstream

      Hi Kevin!
      It is measured from the inside of the mounting holes, so the correct term is actually “truckbase”.

    Kommer det att vara någon risk för wheelbite om jag har Orangatang Durians (75x45mm) hjul på denna brädan? Om jag går från en dropthrough bräda till denna brädan, kommer den kännas mycket högre?

    • Slipstream

      Hi Adrian,
      The wheelbite risk also depends on the trucks and bushings used, but do not worry. A small riserpad will always help if necessary!
      A topmount board will normally feel higher compared to a dropthrough board, so as always, try it before you buy it if possible.
      Good luck!

    Hi again!
    I use 50 degree Calibers with the Blood Orange bushings you get with the trucks. And as I said, Otang Durians. Will there be a big wheelbite risk with this setup (without risers)? I will use it for some carving thats why i wonder…
    I would really like to try this board. Will Slipstream be on the Taberg event, or any other event in Sweden where I can try it?

    • Slipstream

      Hi Adrian,
      You should be good with that setup, but getting pretty close for wheelbite if ridden really hard/being a heavier rider. But if you feel you are getting too close, small risers should do the trick!

  8. kevin

    Something you should take in consideration is to make the board symmetrical with kicks in both ends!

  9. Jorge

    yup! awesome board, i really love it!
    we also made a video with it!
    hope you like it!
