Kelly Slater has released the logo for his upcoming Slater Designs surf brand.
Debuted at the 2016 Florida Surf Trade Show, Kelly Slater Surfboards created a huge amount of hype showcasing the first three models, two of which were designed by Daniel Thomson and the third designed by Greg Webber.
Sci-Fi – designed by Daniel Thomson
Showing off the Sci-Fi in his own wave pool, this Sci-Fi model is the fast and furious 'pocket-rocket' of the Slater Design range. Kelly's size was 5'6" x 18 3/8" x 2 1/4" with 25.8L of volume. The futuristic part of the board is in the bottom half that features a flatter rocker, a double bat tail and wings giving you plenty of planing area combined with a tonne of control. The deck also features a carbon strip for added strength and flex.
The Sci-Fi continues to evolve as Slater constantly looks to improve the his boards. Check out the latest Sci-Fi 2.0
to see how the technology and design has reached new levels.
Omni - also designed by Daniel Thomson
The everyday option in the Slater Design range, the Omni has a blunt nose and a rounded, pulled in tail giving you shorter length with increased width. Kelly rides this model shorter, wider and thicker at 5'3" x 18 3/4" x 2 5/16" with 24.8L of volume.
Banana - designed by Greg Webber
Kelly Slater rode this Banana board model at Pipemasters (see him carving below) and was in many ways the unveiling of the Slater Designs brand. This board is the good, hollow conditions performer. It has plenty of rocker and a pulled in tail and is perfect for getting barrels. Kelly rides this model at 5'10" x 18 3/8" x 2 1/4" with 25.8L of volume at both Pipe and Cloudbreak.
