AHD Sealion 8'3 Sailboard
A new 8’3 shall address the now “classic” SeaLion 7’6 program giving even more homogeneity to the SeaLion line-up!
Along its 5 years of services to fun-boarding the SeaLion Classic 7’6 has been joined first by its XL sister (9’/150 litres) and later by the PRO model (7’6 / 115 litres) built on the same outline but with much thinner rails.
Based on AHD latest developments in shapes and design, we are now re-positioning the « main-stream » SeaLion within the range in a more balanced and logical way.
While the board’s volume remains unchanged at 135 litres, it is now spread on a longer length (8’3) and a slightly increased width – by 1cm – to 75cm. With much thinner rails this is, also, a less thick board altogether.
The new SeaLion 8’3 shall, therefore, be bobbing much less on the water:
It has more stability, a higher floatability and more maneuverability!
With its intermediate scoop (between PRO and XL) and its long vee with double concaves, the SeaLion 8’3 offers fast glides and high-performance surfs.
This new SeaLion 8’3 will be likened by some to a PRO version of the XL: it will particularly please every XL rider who is looking for a more reactive and nervous board.
It will also bewitch riders of all sizes looking to discover the SeaLion spirit with a less cumbersome board than the XL, yet one which is more accessible than the Classic 7’6 and much more tolerant and user-friendly than the PRO 7'6.
It shall also please any heavier rider who will find in the new 8’ 3 a PRO model fitting his weight!
Faithful to the SeaLion « retro-fish » outline, which proved so successful in all waves, whether sailing or suping, the new 8’3 is fitted with two 19cm fins to be trimmed forward for more maneuverability or aft for a better grip.
The mast-foot is usually set from mid-track to aft-track.
Join the SeaLion family and enjoy your waters!
