The Homeslice takes the win for best whitewater boat at Paddlesports Retailer 2018!The Retro-Slice revolution is in full swing. We brought you the Party Braaap and Mullet to start it all. Now it’s time to introduce our cartwheel, squirt, splat, surf, flow machine, the Homeslice. We have taken our more than 25 years of slicey boat experience to not only create a boat that you can throw around to your heart’s content but a low volume kayak that you can paddle all day, probably in shoes. Whether you want to take advantage of the full play potential wheeling in holes and carving up waves or create your own course through the eddy lines, seams, and rocks along the entire river your Homeslice will have your back. The square ended design is spawned from LL’s first freestyle boat, the Session, The squareness creates a faster carving craft and improves looseness on a wave. From there the hull design has an all new progressive rocker with a slight kick behind the seat leading into a stern V-hull to assist in the hard carving and easy spin initiation. What we also learned from all years of small boat design is that it’s time to make a comfortable slicey kayak. The Homeslice has a higher more narrow ergonomic knee position and enough foot room that most people will be able to wear shoes while swapping ends.
"I almost forgot how fun this style of paddling can be! I love using all the eddie lines, seams, waves, and holes to play and work my way down the river. First things first I could get in with low profile shoes! Second thing is that it wants to be vertical! The Homeslice loves to stall on the bow and stern. Third, THAT HULL! It's so smooth and carvy on a wave and looooose! I am falling in love more each time I paddle it." - Shane Benedict
